  • Why practice yoga on-line?
    There are multiple reasons to practice yoga on-line. Below are a few of many reasons: Convenience. You can practice at home at any time of day or night without having to travel to a studio. Privacy. If you are shy or self-conscious, you may prefer to practice in the privacy of your own space. (This may be my favorite reason.) Consistency. Being able to practice yoga from the privacy of your own space provides you with the option to remain consistent with your practice. You are able to attend when you are not feeling your best physically and or emotionally. You are invited to join sessions with your camera on - or off. On-line sessions also allows for you to BE PRESENT and SHOW UP for your practice. Affordability. Classes can be expensive in a studio setting. Practicing at home is a much more affordable option.

  • Why is self-care important?
    Self-care is important because it helps us to maintain our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. When we take care of ourselves, we are better able to cope with stress, manage our emotions, and build resilience and take care of others. Here are some of the specific benefits of self-care: Reduces stress and anxiety. Self-care activities such as exercise, yoga, and meditation can help to reduce stress hormones and promote relaxation. Boosts mood and self-esteem. When we take care of ourselves, we feel better about ourselves and our lives. This can lead to improved mood, increased motivation, and greater confidence. Improves physical health.

It is important to make time for self-care activities every day, even if it is just for a few minutes. Here are some tips for getting started: Identify your needs. What are the things that make you feel good physically, mentally, and emotionally? Once you know what your needs are, you can start to create a self-care plan. Make self-care a priority. Schedule time for self-care activities in your day, just like you would any other important appointment. Start small. If you are new to self-care, start with one or two activities that you can easily fit into your day. As you get more comfortable, you can gradually add more activities. Be flexible. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to self-care. What works for one person may not work for another. Experiment with different activities until you find what works best for you.

  • What drew Donna to Kundalini Yoga?
    I was already teaching a yoga called "Dao Yin Lung Shen". It is a combination of Kundalini Yoga and Qi-gong. It was during this time that I was introduced to mantras and they are the thing that drew me to Kundalini Yoga. Snatam Kaur specifically. Her voice drew me in. For years I would listen to her mantras and sing along in my car or from home. I soon learned more about Snatam Kaur and her yoga practice called Kundalini Yoga. Eventually, I made my way to my first Kundalini yoga class and felt so held, so supported, so energized. It resinated with every fiber of my being! A few years later, joined a Kundalini yoga teacher training and received my 200 hour and then 300 hour traininig consecutively. In my opinion, Kundalini yoga is the most all inclusive, extensive, efficient, and effective practice available today. This ancient practice provides detoxification and stimulation to help restore balance to all ten of our light bodies. It also focuses on the health of our glandular & nervous systems as well. I appreciate how extensive Kundalini yoga is. There are a plethra of kriyas (sets of exercises) that offer an individual an opportunity to heal karma patterns from this lifetime and from our linneages; along with opportunities to work with clearning our auric fields as well. From personal experience, it is the most efficient way to shift emotions and move stuck or what some refer to as "heavy" energy from within the physical body and from the mind as well. It is a sweet, loving, supportive, and limitless practice that encourages the use of ALL eight limbs of yoga. In my opinion, the only way to know about Kundalini Yoga, is to try it out yourself.

    Donna began her yoga journey in 2006 in West Palm Beach, Florida. In 2009, she completed her first yoga teacher training in a yoga style called Dao Yin Lung Shen (a combination of Kundalini and Qigong).

Since there were no Kundalini Yoga classes in her area, she practiced Vinyasa Flow and concentrated on teaching Dao Yin Lung Shen. in 2012 Donna attended her first Kundalini Yoga Class and fell in love. From this point forward she began practicing mantras and learning kundalini kriya sets on her own,. She recalls coming home after her first Kundalini Yoga class, filled with such peace and happiness. She said "we did only a few postures and a lot of new breathing exercises that left me feeling detoxified and refilled with pure energy. Plus, the teacher even sang a sweet song to me before and after class. I felt like I was held, seen and heard.” It was then that Donna knew she would one day become a Kundalini yoga teacher. Finally, just after the pandemic, on her birthday in 2021, she registered with Yoga Farm Ithaca and began her “official” certified, Kundalini Teacher Training. Donna received her 200 hr., 3-month, certification and continued on in 2022 to complete the 300 hr., 6-month, certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training from Yoga Farm Ithaca, New York.
