Diane Campbell is a teacher and mother living in Eugene, Oregon. In raising her own children and working with hundreds more in schools across the city, she observed how issues like trauma, anxiety, and depression can derail a child’s development and make everything else more difficult. This led her to seek out ways of supporting children’s emotional well-being and sense of self mastery. She has made it her primary goal as a mother, educator, and community member to support those she works with in living fully, joyfully, and confidently.

Imagination Yoga is a children’s yoga program that was developed in the classroom by an early childhood teacher. It weaves age-appropriate yoga flows into imaginative stories to encourage kids to be fully present and engaged, both mentally and physically. This approach provides rich opportunities to help children develop essential skills like self-awareness, empathy, visualization, confidence, and mental flexibility while simultaneously building stronger, healthier bodies. Diane has adapted this program to include mythology-based adventures for middle school-aged students. Find more information about Imagination Yoga at imaginationyoga.com.
