Originally a dancer who performed in many professional shows in the North West of England, Donatella followed her heart and moved to LA (California) in 2012. This is where she first stepped into a Hot Power Yoga class at Hot 8 Yoga, fell in love with the practice and has never looked back.
With over 7 years experience of working as a Trainer (in the UK), where she wrote, facilitated and evaluated training courses, and completed her CIPD Level 5 Diploma, Donatella felt she was meant to teach yoga. Donatella successfully completed her 1st 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Course in 2013, in Power Yoga and then went on to complete another 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Course in Hot Yoga in 2015, both at Hot 8 Yoga. During her time in LA, Donatella had the privilege to teach at LA’s number 1 yoga studio: Hot 8 Yoga across multiple locations teaching 30+ students per class. Whilst in LA she guided many individuals and families through private classes in their homes across the LA area, with some being a student for 4 years.
On returning back to the UK in 2017 Donatella continued teaching yoga and has been fortunate to be welcomed into many yoga studios, gym’s and people’s homes private classes across the North West.
Donatella provides a safe and fun environment for students to experience the beauty of yoga though creative flows whilst encouraging individuals to listen to their bodies. She brings her 5+ years experience of teaching yoga in LA and the North West of England to the room every time she teaches. Donatella’s been fortunate to teach a variety of ages, abilities and styles of yoga to many individuals all on different paths. She is forever honoured to guide students through a practice, which allows them to embrace the challenge and surrender into themselves.
