“Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.” ― B.K.S. Iyengar
A private session allows for a more intimate view into YOUR needs in the context of yoga, whether you’re a beginner to yoga, interested in deepening your current practice or you have an injury or specific goal or concern that needs special attention. We each show up to our yoga practice with unique bodies, experiences and needs.
I bring a holistic and integrated approach to my teaching and meet my students where they are in their yoga practice and in their health journey using the movement of the body and the flow and function of the breath to strengthen, heal and integrate body, mind and energy.
My yoga training is in the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa method, with emphasis in the last few years in the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya and the Viniyoga tradition of functional yoga therapy. I have additional training in yoga for cancer, for seniors, yoga nidra, yin yoga, and prenatal/postpartum.

“I have been a student of Donna’s for almost two years. I LOVE her classes. Donna is an excellent teacher—she is kind and attentive and very knowledgeable. I have taken yoga classes on and off for years but it is only under Donna’s guidance that I have finally begun to integrate yoga practice and philosophy into my day-to-day life. Thank you, Donna!”
I have been taking yoga with Donna Ortner at The Pilates Place for over a year. This is by far the best yoga instruction I’ve ever received. Donna is so kind and knowledgeable and really takes the time to make sure we get the poses right. Her class offers the perfect blend of seriousness and fun, and it is because of this class that I have (finally!) started to see yoga not just as a form of exercise but as a way of life.
I was new to yoga and worried I would be intimidated or unable to keep up, but Donna is a talented instructor who is keenly aware of each student’s needs and abilities. She’s able to seamlessly balance teaching the whole class while also developing individual modifications for students as needed.
