Diann Pattermann is the owner and guide of Ishnala Retreat. At 70 years old she has consistently fit wellness into her daily life for over 40 years. Her commitment to nutrition, meditation, and fitness has grown into a desire to pass on her knowledge to others and to create a place for people to find refuge and reconnect with taking care of themselves.
Diann’s personal wellness philosophy is holistic; her practice of developing a strong mind and body is what led her to create Ishnala, a place for guests to retreat from everyday life to do just that.
In her early thirties she was devoted to keeping the body strong working and operating fitness studios, in her late forty’s she moved to Rancho La Puerta spa retreat in Mexico. While living there and teaching she learned from some of the best and experienced instructors in meditation and nutrition in the world.
Her experience was also expanded while instructing at the Golden Door and Cal-A-Vie Spas/Retreats in Southern California.
She has stayed extremely consistent and focused throughout her fifties and sixties with body, mind and nutrition.
Diann is so excited to welcome visitors to the Retreat she has so lovingly created; each experience in her life has prepared her and led her to making this special space for others. She looks forward to meeting you soon.
