"Donna is gifted in inspiring me physically, mentally and spiritually. Her classes are always creative, diverse and challenging. She is an amazing teacher and is motivating, encouraging and creative in each class, for all levels of students. The world of yoga is fortunate to be able to share her gifts. My life is truly enriched every time I practice yoga with Donna."
Alice, student since 1997
"I look forward to Donna‘s classes and always feel better after class then when I entered. Donna is an extraordinary Iyengar yoga teacher; she pours her heart, mind and soul into her teaching. Each asana is demonstrated and explained with amazing clarity and insight encouraging students to carefully work with their bodies. Donna generates warmth, intelligence and compassion inspiring a wonderful comraderie among her students that always adds to the class. I hope to study yoga with Donna for as long as possible."
Renee, student since 2009
"Donna is a wonderfully gifted yoga teacher. I have been practicing yoga since the mid-70's and had many teachers throughout the U.S. Donna is one of the best for many reasons. She has an extensive knowledge of yoga, and she shares it well with all of her students. She makes each student feel welcome and comfortable and is always very patient. She encourages each student to listen to the wisdom of their body throughout their practice. Donna provides individualized attention to every student in each pose and will offer modifications that will either honor any physical limitations or make a pose more challenging, depending on what a student may need at that present moment. Each class is a true joy and a perfect blend to help balance the mind, body and spirit. Donna is truly a blessing in my life."
Liz, student since 2005
"Donna pays attention to every detail of the poses she incorporates into her classes and is a master at individualizing her instructions to students of various abilities and body types. Her classes are creative and diverse -- one week we might focus on the intricate details of backbends, the next week will be a flow sequence and the following, restoratives and breathing. Donna's classes are physically demanding, but equally important, they have a philosophical and spiritual component that the student can choose to explore as they are ready. My world is a much better place for having the opportunity to practice yoga with Donna."
Mary, student since 2003
"You're a wonderful teacher and your classes have been great. I always left them feeling a lot better than when I came in, and that's not something I can say about every teacher I've studied with. I'm going to miss your energy and discipline but I'm very glad our paths have crossed, my practice is all the richer for it."
Steve, student 2016 - 2018
"After my relocation to the U.S., I was looking for an Iyengar yoga teacher to continue my studies. I couldn't have been more fortunate than to find Donna. Donna's teaching style, experience and the amount of personal attention her students receive ensure that they feel at ease, make great progress in the asanas and explore their spiritual potential."
Hanna, student since 2003
"In Donna's classes, each one of us can work at our own level, within our own limits, and all this with a knowledge coming from inside, respecting our body while still challenging it at all times. We each get 100% of what we can get because the classes are so personalized. The way she allies asanas and meditation is inspiring and I always leave uplifted."
Monique-Paule, student since 2013
I've been one of Donna's students for 18 of her over 25 years teaching. To me, she's one of the best Iyengar instructors in the U.S. She is masterful and meticulous in her teaching, and a true ambassador of the BKS Iyengar style of yoga. Each class is like taking a master class on the subject.
Sharon, student since 1999
"In my years with Donna I have discovered that I can enjoy advanced poses while never injuring my body. She teaches safe and secure methods that will keep me practicing yoga into my sunset years."
Susan, student since 2011
"As an older adult, I find that Donna understands and makes accomodations for everyone's physical limitations. Her skills and classes are outstanding!"
Laurie, student since 1997
"I have been a student of Donna's for years and I can honestly attest to personal changes both physical and emotional. Emotionally I am calmer, more centered, and better able to handle stress. Physically, I am stronger, better balanced, and more flexible. Donna is a born-gifted teacher; her patience, instructions, and accomodations to each practitioner's individual needs ensure that classes are personalized, ever more challenging, and yes, life altering."
Betti, student since 2005
"Donna is an outstanding instructor who pays individual attention to her students even when teaching a group of 15 students. She motivates without being demanding and seeks creative approaches to teach an asana or a concept."
Beth and Walter, students since 1996
"I have been a student of Donna's since 2006 and have found it to be very rewarding. I have seen improvement in my posture, muscle tone and strength among other things. Every class is challenging and yet tailored to the abilities of each person. The atmosphere is serene and friendly and is altogther an enjoyable experience."
Kitty, student since 2006
"Donna's classes celebrate attention to detail and building self-awareness, in a non-intimidating, cheerfully supportive environment."
