I have been participating in Donna’s gentle yoga classes at Warriewood and I look forward to them every week. Progressively, through the classes, I am learning how to move ‘out of my head’ and to reconnect with my body in a way that means my busy mind is not always the driver of my body anymore. Increasingly, I am able to take the stillness of body and mind that I am able to experience in the classes with me into my life, so it is not about ‘doing yoga’ for an hour a week and leaving it behind to go ‘back to reality’. It is about making that connectedness my reality, and practising how to maintain it in my life from moment to moment and week to week. You can tell that Donna lives in this stillness, and the gentleness she brings to the practise is an inspiration to everyone in the class.
