Name: Donna Sahuri Dotinga
I’m an expert in: I’m not sure I’m the expert of anything… but I’ve been told I make a pretty yummy salad and ball therapy classes.
Where it all began (how yoga came into your life): My yoga began when I was in my early teens…coming home from school and rearranging the living room furniture so I had room to participate with Gerda Krebs PBS program called “Yoga Fits In”. I enjoyed the feeling of contentment the practice gave me and when I got older I instinctively fell back to it as a way of coping when life felt out of control.
Favorite food: Peanut butter and honey on toast.
Where can you find me when I’m not in the hot room: When not in the hot room I enjoy spending time with my family, walking the dog and gardening with my husband or playing games with our kids. Cycling, hiking and canoeing…or in the winter x-country skiing with friends and family.
What you can expect in my class: My goal in either a Moksha or Yin class is for you to leave the studio relaxed and renewed…ready to move through you day with peace and energy.
Trainings completed Moksha training in 2009, Yin training 2010. I have participated at many other studios classes and workshops in the city and when I travel. My latest interests have been Yoga Ball Therapy. Rolling out muscles and fascia is amazing way to open the body. Roll Model level 1 and 2, 2015 and then 2016 (Yoga tune up balls), Sustainable Yoga training 2017
Favorite quote: “Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
