About Me
My goal is to make yoga enjoyable and beneficial to people of all ages and abilities. I encourage my students to practice yoga in a manner that supports their lifestyle and interests.  This includes offering weekly classes, private instruction, yoga therapy, retreats, and custom workshops.

Development of strength, balance, functional movement, anatomical alignment, as well as flexibility are woven into my teaching.  As a yoga therapist, I use a variety of tools to assist clients in decreasing pain, improving mobility, and learning self care.

Studio Z’s Instructor and Owner, Diane Ziegner is a Registered Yoga Teacher & Continuing Education Provider with Yoga Alliance, and a Registered Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists. She received her 200 hour teaching certification in 1999 from Lynne Minton in Anchorage, Alaska and in 2015 completed a 350 hour training in Yoga Therapy with Sarahjoy Marsh in Portland, Oregon.

Diane is deeply grateful for the guidance, wisdom, and inspiration of her teachers Lynne Minton, Sarahjoy Marsh and Chris Coniaris and for the commitment and support from her students.

Studio Z Yoga classes are held in a 24 foot diameter yurt.  This unique studio space creates a friendly and safe environment for practicing yoga.  All are welcome in the yoga yurt community!

The Studio Z Yoga yurt is located four miles from downtown Talkeetna. Between mile post 9 and 10 of the Talkeetna Spur Road, turn east on Pow Wow Trail. Travel 1/4 mile and turn right at the first driveway. Look for the Studio Z Yoga sign, and both the yurt and parking spaces are found just beyond.

NOTE:  Google Maps lists Pow Wow Trail by the old name of Atwater Road.  The street sign says Pow Wow Trail.

Need a place to stay in Talkeetna?  Studio Z now has rental cabin that is walking distance from the yurt.  Check out Nana’s Cabin on Airbnb!
