Being captain of the cheerleaders in high school, on the women's gymnastics team at the University of Illinois, being a hotdog on waterskiis, teaching a bit of tennis, teaching a bit of diving, what more could a tomboy ask for? After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Recreation and Park Administration from the University of Illinois, Diana realized she’d better get serious!

Teaching everything herself, from lifeguard training to swimming, diving, pool maintenance and repairs, Diana started in 1985 with 5 community swimming pool contracts. Her daughters and many longtime key employees have taken over day-to-day operations, growing the business to over 100 pools. Diana is now free to dabble in things that she loves, including Aerial Yoga and healthy lifestyles! Her newest venture is opening a franchise called Clean Juice in Vintage Park. Hobbies include raising money for Multiple Sclerosis by riding the MS150 from Houston to Austin, rock climbing and rappelling with her son and grandsons. She loves the not-so-ordinary sports and activities.
Randi Rogers, Sub-Instructor | At the age of 17, Randi began practicing yoga on a nightly basis. Throughout her childhood of playing soccer, she didn’t stretch properly, a situation that resulted in stiff muscles. When she reached 20, she was granted the wonderful opportunity to study abroad at an eco hostel called the Yoga Farm in Costa Rica. From this time in her life, she became hooked. While living in Boulder, she finally took the step to get yin yoga certified. Since then Randi has been teaching and practicing in local parks and many yoga studios in the Northwest Houston area. Randi looks forward to achieving fulfillment teaching others yoga skills and philosophies as well as relating this knowledge to the art of aerial yoga! She holds a degree in Natural Science and a minor in Journalism from Eckerd College.
