E-RYT 500

When Jenna embarked on her yoga journey 15 years ago she never imagined how it would change every aspect of her life. Through a 500 hour teacher training at Amma Yanni Yoga Center and School she learned the capability of the body to heal both physically and mentally. 
She wants to share how those changes helped her to become a stronger, healthier, and happier person. Her focus on the yoga practice is not just the movement and asana, it is to dig deeper emotionally and physically by aligning the body and mind. Her approach to the practice involves protection of the joints and muscles to prevent injury; while also building strength, balance and endurance. 
She strives to create a low stress, welcoming and inclusive environment for students of all ages and body types to explore their bodies in a safe, respectful, and responsible way. Our yoga community is deeply important to her as are the health and happiness of each and every one of my students. Her wish is to spread the joy of movement so people can live more optimally and happily in their bodies.

Donna is a yogi, a certified holistic health coach and very blessed mother of two beautiful humans. She is a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) and is currently working on completing her 500-hour certificate. She found yoga over 20 years ago out of curiosity and the search for a new and different way to exercise. From the moment she stepped on her mat, she felt a deeper connection with yoga beyond just the physical practice and has weaved it throughout her life ever since. She also received her holistic health coach certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2022. Donna is very passionate about sharing the transformative practice of yoga and nutritional health, and empowering others to take control over their own wellness to become the best version of themselves.
When not on her mat, Donna can be found spending time with her family, running with friends, enjoying the outdoors, or in the kitchen cooking up nourishing meals.
             “Yoga continually reminds me of the importance of patience, presence and playfulness, and I am grateful every day for the lessons, opportunity and purpose along this incredible journey.” – Donna
