East Meets West
The healer in Donna was sparked as a young child, when her father became terminally ill with Hodgkin's disease. She studied Cell and Molecular Biology in her undergraduate years and was then called to combine the ancient Eastern medical arts leading to a Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese herbs.
She has studied Qi Gong under Vince Lasorso at Whatever Works Wellness & Post Tribal Shaman, Kenn Day and continues in advanced yoga teacher training with Anna Ferguson and Mark Stroud at World Peace Yoga.
Donna's Advanced Yoga Training focuses on Yin Yoga, yoga therapy and making yoga accessible for all. Donna is being certified as an iRest Yoga Nidra teacher under Dr. Richard Miller at the Integrative Restoration Institute and was attuned by Zeynap Premadasi Yilmaz in Usui Reiki.
