"I love taking Donna’s Zoom yoga classes. I love how Donna connects every movement and every breath to the nervous system. I love how each class has a theme that is woven together through a reading, the poses and the final relaxation. Her whole person, integrative approach is refreshing. This truly is Yoga For All."
Debbie, Los Angeles
"When I started practicing yoga with Donna four years ago, I was impressed with her tremendous patience when helping beginners (like me) learn the various positions and improve their technique. I found that the yoga stretching moves and relaxation helped my lower back a lot, and has improved my flexibility. I hope you enjoy having Donna as your instructor as much as I have!"
