My intention for yoga students is to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere, a fun place for experiencing the healing art of yoga. With personal attention on restoring and re-nourishing vitality and motivating each student to become aware of the perfection they already have inside.
Yoga For Caregivers
I’m Donna Yanus and I’d love to be your yoga instructor.
About 8 years ago I created an ergonomics seminar for dental professionals with the help of my instructor Ashok Jain.
He taught me about Yoga Nidra, reducing stress, and reducing physical energy so I could balance my life, nothing more than a miracle.
Since then I continued my studies in Hatha Yoga in India to learn more natural and Ayurvedic techniques. All to help us work our way through the myriad of emotional and physical challenges we deal with everyday.
Once you understand the science of yoga, you’ll be able to use it to your advantage. I’d love to help you and guide you through. I can help you on a day to day basis with any of the videos or tutorials. So take a look at the courses, and see if there is anything you are interested in.
I’d love to help you, I wish you all the best.
I received my dental hygiene degree at Luzerne County Community College and continued my dental education at Penn Dental School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was during this time that I was introduced to my first guided meditation. I considered it nothing less than a miracle! As a young student, I found it very difficult to focus. Meditation was the antidote. It not only increased my grades, but after a few sessions I gained physical energy by reducing my stress level. Eventually I found most of the answers I was searching for were hidden by the constant chatter in my brain. Soon after relocating to Florida I integrated the physical postures (Hatha yoga) and continued practicing for many years. Following the completion of yoga teacher training at The Lotus Pond Center for Yoga and Health, I was inspired to share this precious gift.
In 2014, I started a project to share Yoga in my own community. With the help of the Hotel Zamora, I was able to secure a place for a community class. Here everyone was welcome for any donation to enjoy the benefits of Yoga.
In a thirst for more knowledge, and validation of my studies, I chose to expand my education by traveling to India. After spending a few months in an intensive training, I learned more about the traditional techniques of Yoga, and Ayurveda the sister science to Yoga.
The journey continues each day as I realize my natural calling to enjoy and share the ancient art of Yoga.
Many of my students, family and friends are in the dental, mental health care or medical fields. Others have been “in home” caregivers. Each day they experience new challenges, both physical and emotional. Caregivers stream a continuous flow of love and compassion for others each day. Yoga for caregivers is designed to restore and renourish that outpouring of emotions. Yoga is the perfect, and most natural solution to add strength and vitality to the body and mind. The benefits have been scientifically documented throughout the world. If practiced with a safe and knowledgeable instructor, the only risks could be symptoms of inner peace. These I witness in many students on a regular basis .
