Through my specialist styles of yoga:
Meditation: I can offer a range of tailored meditation sessions, including sound, guided, nidra, chakra, visualisation.
I teach yoga as a progressive therapeutic healing modality of which is a committed and devotional practice that emphasizes prosperous health, a purified mind, an energized and connected soul and a kind, compassionate heart.
Yoga & Meditation Methods/ Styles
Hatha; Slow, gentle but strengthening for mind and body, traditional that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.
Yin - A deep stretch, slow paced, passive including chakra inspired- Yin Yoga you are spending time in stillness and introspection, for prolonged periods of time. This means you can go deeper into the subtle layers of the body, releasing deeply rooted tension but clearing the energetic chakra centres.
Yin yoga works on the deep layers of the tissue that can restrict a person’s quality of movement. But, not only are you accessing stuck areas of the physical body, you are also tapping into the energetic body.
Yin Yoga is a meditative approach. It can even be said that yin yoga can aid a practitioner in finding meditation. It is a practice that often helps those who struggle to quieten their mind, to achieve a meditative state.
Restorative yoga: You'll also use a variety of props including blankets, bolsters and yoga blocks to fully support your body in each pose. It's a good yoga practice for anyone who has a hard time slowing down, recovering from injury or illness , or those who experience insomnia or who struggles with anxiety.
Yoga Nidra: A meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation.

I really enjoy Donna's yoga classes, both her Hatha and Yin & Restorative sessions. She has a calm, relaxed teaching style and is always friendly and welcoming. I like the fact that she gives plenty of time to Shavasana, as in some classes this can feel a bit rushed. New poses are explained clearly as well as demonstrated, and Donna will always help out with an adjustment, or a bit of extra pressure, where needed. Her teaching is very enabling and there is always scope for more experienced students to work at their own level, while those who need to take things more gently are encouraged to do so. Probably what I appreciate most is the way her classes integrate the physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions of yoga, without being didactic but recognising them all. Ruth
I have known Donna for a number of years now and feel so blessed to have found her. Donna is an incredible lady, extremely professional and very knowledgable and will always go above and beyond to help you.
She is so talented and her style of teaching is incredible.
I would happily recommend Donna 100%
She is the most calming person I have met. She makes you feel so relaxed and just at ease with yourself. Highly recommend any coaching / yoga from her
Donna has been teaching me yin yoga for the last year and I love her gentle, supportive approach. She is non judgemental, easy to talk to and intuitive. She provides a safe space to explore personal and spiritual issues whether in a group or on a 1:1 basis. I have been practising personal development for over 35 years and have experience of many different teachers and approaches and I have no hesitation in recommending Donna.
