Dyana Wells anatomy and physiology teacher

Loved Dyana’s passion for this subject. Particularly in terms of muscular anatomy and the actions they cause. Great to be given the opportunity to look at a posture, work out the active (eccentric/concentric) muscles and their corresponding actions. Having the skeletons and plasticine helped to bring some of the muscles to “life” in terms of their origins, insertions, actions. – Katrina Tanner 2016

Anatomy is probably my favourite subject! Dyana is incredibly knowledgeable and shares her enthusiasm infectiously! Great combination of talk and practical. – Sarah Ford 2016

Organ System workshops with Dyana Wells

I found it absolutely fascinating to learn how and why the body works as it does. Everything was relevant, Dyana related each and every aspect we covered right from the cells to how they relate to the practice of yoga. This knowledge will definitely make me a better teacher, and there are many ways that I will be able to integrate it into my teaching. I found Dyana really inspirational. – Juliet Slovgrove 2016
