Having an intuitive pull toward the path of yoga from a very young age, Donna realized this path as an integral part of her life during the last 17 years as a student and as a teacher since 2010. She is influenced by several yoga traditions and continues to be a student first and foremost, seeing the wisdom of yoga as a physical, emotional and spiritual healing practice.
Donna has completed certifications in Power Yoga from Core Power Yoga, Boulder CO; the 230hr Yoga Therapy Teacher Training from Asheville Yoga Center, Asheville, NC, working toward the 500 RYT Advanced Studies Certification, with additional training in Yin Yoga, Yoga for Cancer and Ayurveda, and will complete the Liberation Yoga 200hr Teacher Training in October, 2017, Nashville, TN. She is also certified as a Holistic Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
Donna brings a holistic approach to her classes, empowering students to live in their bodies in a wholesome way. Her classes are an invitation to connect more deeply to the present moment through fluid movement and mindful breath. She offers practices that are balancing, strengthening and emotionally enriching and that challenge students to practice from a place of intuitive exploration and personal freedom. Donna meets students where they are in their yoga practice, offering classes that are inclusive, fun and lighthearted.
