 About Donna


Donna received her undergraduate degree in literature from the University of California at San Diego and her Master's degree in Exercise Physiology from California State University at San Diego. After 3 years of comprehensive yoga teacher training she was certified by Patricia O'Reilly in Viniyoga, following the tradition of T.K.V. Desikachar. She presently has over 20 years of experience as a health educator in California.

Donna's yoga sessions emphasize the relationship of breathing and movement. The intelligent sequencing of poses increases strength and flexibility in the safest manner possible, including adapting the teachings to meet individual concerns. Her emphasis on watching the mind and opening the heart during practice gives a full experience of awareness and stillness, both in yoga and seated meditation.

Donna is well known for her clear and compassionate teaching style which assists students in their practice of awareness and self acceptance. Besides individual and ongoing classes, she also teaches yoga and meditation retreats and workshops throughout the Southern California area.
