From a background in Corporate America in the industry of Accounting & Taxation, Donna’s transitioned her career into the world of Health & Wellness. Upon years of personal practice and experience in over fifteen different forms of Yoga, she decided to pursue her career in becoming a yoga teacher.
To maintain balance in her work life, Donna has always found it important to continue being athletic. She has competed in Dragon Boat Racing for two summers, and has also completed the Hamptons Half Marathon and a Dirty Girl Mud Run. On whatever spare time that’s left over, she’s also enjoyed dancing, Zumba, martial arts, kick-boxing, and her other favorite love next to yoga is hiking. Donna continues the practice of Yoga & Meditation (as well as Pranayama & Mantra).
With a combination of 200 hours of Certified Yoga Teacher Training in Hatha / Vinyasa Flow Yoga from Vitality Yoga & Tai Chi Studio in Bayside + 200 hours of Certified Yoga Teacher Training in Chakra Yoga™ from The Giving Tree Yoga Studio in Astoria, Donna returns to us with a terrific balance of professionalism, athleticism and great enthusiasm to share her passion & love of yoga!
She has worked with NYC Marathoners and private clients who visit from various parts of the world, as well as local New Yorkers and yogis in the tristate area. Donna has also personally and privately trained some of high end clientele and A-list celebrities from The Giving Tree Wellness Company.
In addition to her Yoga Certifications in the forms of Hatha / Vinyasa Flow and Chakra Yoga™, Donna also holds Specialized Certifications in unique forms of yoga such as AromaYiN™, Total Training™, and Yin & Restorative Yoga, which she is delighted to share with anyone interested in Yoga and the practice of good health. After a tough journey and leave of absence last year, Donna is ecstatic to return to teaching and honored to service the Astoria Community.
