After a long six-month battle with lung cancer, Diana Ross passed peacefully in her home with family by her side. Diana was a co-founder of Breast Cancer Yoga and well-known, accomplished yoga teacher who taught for more than 20 years. Bringing more than just knowledge, Diana reached an audience that embraced her spirituality. Having been to India, twice, she fully immersed herself in her teachings. In her last months, family and friends surrounded her with a vast amount of love. We will mourn her presence for a long time to come. Soak in the light she brought into our lives, and take with us her knowledge and spirituality.

I’m right by your side each night and day
And within your heart I long to stay

As a three-time breast cancer survivor whose dreams diagnosed illness missed by the medical community and the tests on which they relied, I understand the importance of dreams, female intuition…
