Session Testimonials


“I began Body Awareness sessions 4 months after recovering from spinal fusion surgery for scoliosis. 
This work showed me techniques that would strengthen & relax not just my back, but my entire body.
 After one month of sessions, I was feeling more relaxed in everyday activities. 
Through Donna's teachings of Body Awareness, I was able to identify & eventually
 eliminate sources of tension & distress that were negatively affecting the outcome of everything I did. 
Donna’s greatest strength is her ability to understand her students.  
I am constantly surprised by her ability to answer a question before I am able to articulate it...
or sometimes even before I knew I had one. She is a truly gifted teacher and healer.”

enlightenment through Donna's work with me. I enthusiastically recommend Body Awareness!"

“I now wake up & feel a sense of overwhelming joy when I actually move & feel NO knee pain - 
not even a recollection that it was SO painful 
a few months ago. 
I walked away from our session with a sense of 
accomplishment & a hope that I would mend, 
but as I sit here I can honestly 
say that the pain is a memory. 
I am thankful every day that I spent 
that time with you. Amazing work Donna!”

Donna’s work has enhanced the quality of life I live. 
The movements she incorporates & creates truly revitalize the whole being.

Her work is Amazing!

After a fall that injured my knees I was almost paralyzed with fear & my life was extremely altered.
I was strongly encouraged by a dear friend to meet with Donna & I'm so Grateful I did!
Almost immediately my confidence was restored & pain subsided.
Her sessions & classes are not only exercise, they are fun, laughter, caring & support!  
I always leave with a lifted spirit.” 
~ Noreen, Realtor, Animal Wellness Practitioner

"Donna has a beautiful way of seeing and understanding the body & the power of our connection with it.
 Her unique ability to share this knowledge with her students helps them develop 
an awareness, respect & trust for their own body. 
Through her work, I am learning to shift the perspective I had,
 of feeling that my body was "failing me" when I experienced chronic pain. 
I have learned to listen to, appreciate & honor the body & its signals. 
 I have learned to make shifts in moving with greater ease & command, 
which carries over in my every day activities.  With this increase in awareness, my pain has decreased significantly, allowing for a feeling of joy and balance within." 
~ Marisa, Teacher
