“Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.” ― B.K.S. Iyengar
“I have been a student of Donna’s for almost two years. I LOVE her classes. Donna is an excellent teacher—she is kind and attentive and very knowledgeable. I have taken yoga classes on and off for years but it is only under Donna’s guidance that I have finally begun to integrate yoga practice and philosophy into my day-to-day life. Thank you, Donna!” Lisa D
I have been taking yoga with Donna Ortner at The Pilates Place for over a year. This is by far the best yoga instruction I’ve ever received. Donna is so kind and knowledgeable and really takes the time to make sure we get the poses right. Her class offers the perfect blend of seriousness and fun, and it is because of this class that I have (finally!) started to see yoga not just as a form of exercise but as a way of life.
I was new to yoga and worried I would be intimidated or unable to keep up, but Donna is a talented instructor who is keenly aware of each student’s needs and abilities. She’s able to seamlessly balance teaching the whole class while also developing individual modifications for students as needed. -Alex
