Diane Nickelberg-Barnett is the founder of Grounded Meditation and a successful NYC Real Estate attorney who realized years ago that she needed something to help balance the stress and chaos of her busy and demanding career. A lifelong interest in health, fitness and spirituality drew her into the world of meditation and yoga where she found that these peaceful practices served to counteract the constant stress of practicing law. Her passion for these disciplines, paired with the desire to help others, has naturally led her to teaching, and she feels honored and blessed to be in a position to help her students find balance and quiet in their own lives. Diane has been teaching for about ten years and has been fortunate to be able to share her knowledge with students in both the private and corporate world.
Grounded Meditation is the culmination of years of work with students from all backgrounds and Diane’s realization that what appears to be consistently missing from nearly everybody’s life is the ability to just STOP and be present, alone and peaceful with one’s self, even for short periods of time. Diane’s user-friendly approach to meditation teaches her students to do just that – quiet their minds, embrace the stillness, and enjoy the many benefits of meditation which have been medically proven and scientifically documented.
Diane is a graduate of Cornell University and CUNY School of Law, and holds multiple certifications in teaching meditation and yoga, is certified in sound healing, and recently completed training as a Dancing Mindfulness facilitator. She has taught private and group classes in studios and businesses to students of all ages and levels in New York City and Connecticut.
