Forever Grateful

“I have been taking Donna Brook’s Gentle Yoga class since June 2011 and am forever grateful to her for the positive changes she has brought about in me. Through her vast experience, thorough knowledge of anatomy and her ability to observe, explain, and demonstrate, she has brought awareness of and improved my movement patterns, which have completely eliminated a history of chronic pain. My newfound balance and flexibility allow me to enjoy many more daily activities that I hadn’t attempted for years. Unlike other yoga classes I’ve taken, Donna’s approach is personal-she first listens to where the people in her class are physically, and then targets what we need to address.

She is able to quickly assess and use hands-on shaping to correct faulty movement patterns. Her warm and wonderful energy makes for easy communication and sharing, and I leave every session having learned something new and in a state of peace and appreciation. I highly recommend Donna to anyone looking for excellence in a teacher of yoga and motion.”
