Starts April 6
Teaching Dance - Modern Technique - Tuesdays in April 
6:15pm - 7:30pm open levels to register 

A hybrid of forms such as chi/energy cultivation, somatics, improvisational explorations as well as modern contemporary technique work. Principles of falling, flying, inversion. floor and center work will encourage deep awareness and understanding of the body.  Exploring volume and weight inside the body and its relationship to the floor, bringing awakening to the feet, spine, and pelvic floor, encouraging  the feeling of release in the limbs, and articulate falling and suspending off-center. We will explore sensation, instinct, and the inherent musical phrasing inside the body. This class will use imagery and metaphors to help dancers find new ways to cultivate movement, awareness as well as release unconscious holding patterns. It elaborates on fundamental principles of dance, including suspension, alignment, economy and efficiency, sustainable breath and energy, spontaneity, suppleness, balance, grounding, and dynamic stillness. We will learn phrases that move in and out of the floor and carry us in and out of balance. Relationship within the dynamics of sound, space and each other.

sGroup  class: 

We practice asana pranayama, meditation and kriya techniques, Honing our gifts of focus and where we place attention.   Merging breath and movement with strong alignment (form) to create maximum function of asana, ease, stillness and strength in a balancing flow for all systems of the body. Beyond form and function lies meaning/intention and we are called back again and again to investigate and come to know the self. All levels of practice will be honored and postures can be modified to create stability and generate healing benefits regardless of the degree of "depth" one chooses to explore in each pose. Please for Yoga practices do not eat a large meal within 3 hours of class time. You will be challenged and supported in this study of mergingmind/body/spirit= science of self. These practices can be a wonderful foundation to start a lifetime of daily practice - and tools for health, happiness and - liberation. - moksha - the goal of all Yoga

In teaching, I often blend technologies and systems and apply them to serve the specific needs of the group. I have trained in Ashtanga vinyasa ( primary and second series, "rocket" vinyasa) as well as in the postural systems Ghosh lineage (Bikram method/ 26x2 and intermediate/advanced)   I am greatly influenced by the Hatha vinyasa teachings of Sri Dharma Mittra and other Integral Yoga methods of Hatha Yoga .   I incorporate Qi and Acupressure/ Meridian science. I am a practitioner of Meridian/acupressure Yoga therapy and completed a Level 1 training in 2020 with Science of Self/Rose Erin Vaughan.  My primary and current teacher in Yoga Darshana is Prasad Rangnekar and I am a Student and practitioner of Meditation and Tibetan Buddhism. I wish to share what I practice as I have found methods that work, they are rooted in Lineage and have been passed down to our great fortune to my teachers their teachers and to you. There is so much suffering that can be avoided by leading a life established in Yoga.  As my student, in typical group practice,  You will learn how to utilize bandhas - muscle contractions to direct energy flow,  pranayama - techniques to regulate breath and dristi - gaze/focus/concentration/intention. You will learn about the enegetic and emotional and subtle bodymind
ultimately a state of  Samahdi- meditation/union with the True Self. 
self realization

all levels and bodies welcome  

Invest in your well being. Support your community

I encourage you to develop a steady personal practice. 
Yoga is a Moksha Shastra ( liberation science)

I am also available to guide children of all ages in meditation, yoga, dance and other creative arts classes!for questions or to book a private session or event please contact Donna 513 252 1141 or

Yoga is a path of Self study and Self Knowledge. What we learn through dedicated, consistent practice can be immediately applied and integrated into all of our relationships and actions.
It is a path that leads to "healing the estrangement between the self and everything else"- Sri Louise

I have been guiding yoga classes professionally since 2004 and have over 25 years of movement/dance /mind body breath training and experience. 

I specialize in finding a regenerative, safe and challenging practice for all to participate and flourish within a group atmosphere. As well, I am available for private lessons. I love to help students develop daily home practice, movement  and meditation techniques and forms to heal nourish and balance body and mind.
.  I am thankful to ALL my teachers. 

Hatha Yoga prACTice is a discipline.  Entering ones life can be a daily struggle. Rituals help us find that entrance.Yoga can be a means to reconnect you to what is essential. I practice so to be more open, awake and available to my loves and the processes that make me feel alive and free which most often include dance, music, art, nature, family, my dog and cat and working with children.

 I believe relationship between student and teacher or guide is an essential component in learning/training. and dedicated practice. and love. always.A SpiRitual practice can be looked at as a ritual way of entering ones true self.

Our Collective is named after my beloved dog Bunny. See her story here
