Donna led her Body Positive Workshop for Yoga Teachers for our team of teachers at MoreYoga and it was absolutely fantastic, we have had nothing but positive feedback and would highly recommend this workshop to all Yoga Teachers who are looking to build on their teaching skills, make their classes more inclusive and be more aware of the language they are using and how this can impact their students. Donna delivers her workshops with humour, passion and energy that keeps it engaging and fun whilst also being very informative. Donna’s journey and work is an inspiration to us all!

Donna’s passion for evolving yoga’s image and making yoga accessible to ‘every body’ was evident as she spoke at her workshop in Berlin, and even more so when she was teaching. The way she approaches, adjusts and interacts with her students – it’s real magic. As a yoga teacher myself, I feel inspired to join Donna in promoting a yoga that is inclusive and accepting of all!
