Full Description

Each of us has a dharmic path that when followed with commitment and tenacity leads us to the awakening of our fullest potential. How do we reconnect with this larger vision of our self? In this intensive we will explore ways of connecting with our deepest heart’s desire; using the practice of Yoga to bring clarity and courage to the journey.

A special emphasis of this intensive will be on learning to open to our personal experience of heart-felt-ness – in the physical body as well as energetically, emotionally, and spiritually.

ssisted by kirtan artist Joan Miller, and guided by the mesmerizing sound orchestration of Prabhu Osoniqs, we’ll learn to gently relax and open the heart, reawakening our capacity for joyfulness and wonder. As we deepen into our heart’s intelligence we may also encounter our strongest feelings and emotions. For this reason we will begin the intensive by learning to center and ground ourselves from the animal intelligence of the belly so that the heart, head and belly form a balanced “trilogy of intelligence.”

A special feature of this intensive will be an anatomical exploration of the heart, lungs and chest, using the truth of our anatomy as an entry point into this often unexplored inner territory. To facilitate this understanding Donna will present several new PowerPoint presentations. We will also dive deep into the practice of Yoga Nidra* using the practice to navigate the terrain of our deepest beliefs, emotions and dreams.


Each day will consist of two classes. Practices will include sitting meditation, lecture discussion, kirtan (chanting), guided movement inquiry and a diverse range of active asana practice as well as Restorative yoga and the practice of Yoga Nidra*.

*Yoga Nidra is an ancient Tantric practice in which profound states of relaxation open us to the nature of the true Self.


This intensive is suitable for anyone with at least one years consistent Yoga experience up to teacher level. No partial attendance will be allowed for this intensive.
