About Me

Mindful Movement This Yogic Life

My name is Donna and I have been running my Holistic Therapy business Holistic Bodymind for five years.

Yoga transforms lives.

One way yoga encourages transformation is by helping you to shift patterns you’ve developed over time, patterns that may be unhealthy and destructive. Yoga also teaches you how to make better decisions. Everything about practicing yoga involves intention—you set apart time in your day to do it, you move in a specific manner, breathe in a specific way. And when you are mindful and deliberate in your yoga practice, you create the opportunity to become more mindful and deliberate in your life.
 
It’s about finding the true essence of our being, beneath all the veils and layers that hide who we truly are. To seek from the unreal to the real. To break away from self limiting beliefs to explore our true calling in life.
 
I found my deepest healing, strength, forgiveness, confidence, courage, presence and place in this world through yoga teacher training, the intensive chakra system, yoga philosophy and psychology. It transformed me from an unhappy, ill, lost, overweight, addicted, traumatized person and gave me freedom, freedom to let go of my pains, guilt, shame, sorrow, loss and the empty person that I was. I was living with so much regret, anger, resentment towards myself and others. 

Words can not express the transformation it has brought me and i’m still continuing the process. I can confidently say that I now live everyday with an open heart, with gratitude, love, confidence, connection to myself and the divine with meaning and purpose. I am truly and deeply happy for the first time in my life and I share this message to the world, hoping to inspire and awaken you on this journey with me.
 
 

My message to you.

This Yogic Life – Enlightened Living Through The Self 

Spiritual Tools For Success, Happiness and Transformation Empowering You to Rewire, Self Heal, Align, Connect and Live With Purpose

Heart- Mind-Body-Energy Connection

Yoga is Union. Spiritual union with self, the divine. 

Walk on the spiritual path of Dharma- Raja yoga with me into a self expansive and empowering journey.

My spiritual tools are for men and women to guide you into reclaiming back your personal power, purpose, freedom, offering you the gateway to success, happiness and transformation, for life, through the five points of yoga:

  • Proper Exercise -Asana 

  • Proper Breathing –Pranayama.

  • Proper Relaxation – Savasana.

  • Proper Diet – Vegetarian.

  • Positive Thinking and Meditation – Vedanta and Dhyana

I teach yoga as a progressive therapeutic healing modality of which is a committed and devotional practice that emphasizes prosperous health, a purified mind, an energized and connected soul and a kind, compassionate heart. 

This benefits you by cultivating a successful mindset, feeling great in body and gaining the necessary skills to obtain mastery over your own life and to live fully and authentically.

Through my specialist styles of yoga:

  • Hatha- Raja

  • Sivananda

  • Yin Yoga

  • Yoga Nidra

  • Meditation

We focus on my key specialist components of yoga as the spiritual path that it is:

  • Five Koshas- Sheaths/ Layers

A practice in classical Jnana Yoga (the yoga of understanding, also known as the “direct path”) involves deconstructing the ideas about who you are by breaking your identification with each kosha:

Annamaya Kosha – Physical Body

Pranamaya Kosha – Energy Body 

Manomaya Kosha -Mental Body

Vijnanamaya Kosha – Wisdom or Awareness Body

Anandamaya Kosha-  Bliss Body- Higher Self

  • Pranayama- The Breath

  • Yoga Psychology and Philosophy

  • The Yoga- Heart-Mind-Body Connection

I teach you to become unstuck and unattached from your heavy rooted limitations and beliefs that are imprinted into your mind, body and soul. Feeling grounded and safe. 

I facilitate you with the tools that enable you to awaken your senses that move you from fear into  flow and create the life you want for yourself. 

Creative ideas and passions will arise and you will experience movement and growth. 

You will ignite the inner flame from your emotion plexus and discover your inspirations, firing you onto the path to your true potential with confidence. You will unravel what’s holding you back, eliminate ego and channel a new fire energy. 

You will release your struggles, pains and emotional traumas, recover and heal from your heart space, feeling centred, nurtured and supported. 

Worthiness, Deserving and Trust will be the keys to a new beginning. 

You will finally feel safe to voice your truth, communicate and express your inner voice out to the world. You will see, speak, listen and purify any unwanted blocks that restrict you from progressing in life. 

You will discover and meet your higher self / consciousness and open your mind to visualize the portal to your new reality that what you have always dreamed of. 

You will obtain clear knowing, clear insight and intuitive freedom. 

You will meet and connect with your divine purpose, universal energy and step into the gateway of infinite possibilities and opportunities with positive, meaningful and an enlightened state of presence. 

I do what I do because my past experiences with chronic illness with depression and emotional trauma brought me onto this spiritual path, with three near death experiences, numerous abusive relationships, physical assault and the loss of a soul. I didn’t need anymore wake up calls to change how I was living my life and who and what I was attracting. 

I believe no one should have to suffer with their pains and struggles and you all deserve freedom, joy, healing, peace, love, success and happiness. 

I love yoga because it has been my counselling, my healing medicine, it has been my most powerful and profound facilitator of recovery, self expansion and growth.  

My mission of yoga empowers to empower. If you heal the heart, mind and soul, you heal your body. 

 

All of our live’s answers are within us, its about tuning into that innate wisdom and uncovering what our body is telling you. 
We are divinely guided by ourselves if we just listen to our inner guidance. 
We are our best teacher. 
We live our life of meaning and purpose, finding peace and contentment deep within.

 

My Experience Teaching Yoga

In 2018 I decided to pursue my original calling of training to teach yoga and I have just qualified from my 8 months 200 hour Yoga and spiritual development teacher training journey in the study of classical yoga philosophy and traditional hatha yoga practices. I trained with the Shanti Centre training school in Bristol / Italy. The course modules included: 

How to teach yoga, How to practice yoga, Karma yoga, Intensive Chakra development, Yoga Philosophy and  Anatomy and Physiology.

I am insured by and a registered member of the Awarding Body of The Independant Yoga Network which is also a non-profit organisation. 

My Next Adventure

My next venture is to do my Sivananda Yoga Health Educator Training (SYHET) 800-Hour Yoga Therapy Program. Yoga is union and for me this is union with myself and the world, to live a dedicated life to spiritual practice through all of what yoga is. My teacher training course has been a transformational journey of dedication, faith and trust, self awareness, self discovery, self realization, soul searching, through myself to my true self, by releasing trauma, letting go of old negative patterns of thinking and living and falling in love with seeking the best version of myself.

I love teaching yoga to the world, in which I would love to travel and reach out to as many people as possible because yoga is for everyone. I personally have a dedicated daily on and off the mat. So whether its deepening my breath, gratitude, journaling, self development, continued education, postures, eating a proper diet (vegeterian), gaining proper rest and sleep, breaking negative subconscious thought processes, because we are what we think and reprogramming the mind with positive thoughts of peace and abundance, these are all practices that deepen my spiritual core, connecting me deeper to self and the world.
