RYT 200 Donna is originally from Chicago, IL. She lived in the Midwest and on the East Coast before moving to beautiful Arizona. She was introduced to yoga several years ago. When Donna moved to the Southwest, she began exploring different yoga styles and took her personal practice beyond the physical aspect to let go, find acceptance, inner peace, and self-love. Taking her personal yoga journey to the next level, Donna completed the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Hot Yoga University (HYU) in Scottsdale, AZ.
She enjoys exploring her creative side by designing fun and challenging vinyasa flows and encourages students to take what they need from the experience. Outside of yoga, Donna enjoys the exploring the plant-based food scene (especially desserts!), cooking new recipes, high-intensity interval training workouts, and traveling.
Donna is excited to be a member of the HYU team and looks forward to guiding students through their yoga practice!
