Donna Southwell India 2014

The peaceful practice of Yoga will transform your life.

19 years ago ashtanga yoga transformed my life. Since then, the physical and mental benefits of daily practise have rewarded me with strength, flexibility and focus. 15 years ago I decided to share my practice and it’s philosophy with others. Over the years that I have been teaching I have seen many others gain enormously from this practice. I want to continue to share these benefits with as many people as possible whether they be dedicated students who want to study in the traditional Mysore method or those new to ashtanga yoga or yoga entirely.
