As a former Division 1 baseball player (University of Nebraska & Arizona State University), Donny found the gift of yoga in 2005 by searching for pain relief after 7 operations on his left knee and an addiction to pain killers. He started yoga to fix his body, but little did he know what it would do for his mind and soul.
In addition to teaching vinyasa classes across the greater Phoenix area, Donny is the official yoga instructor for the Phoenix Suns and works with professional athletes in the areas of mindfulness, meditation and yoga. You can also find Donny taking his teachings to studios and festivals across the country as an OMbassador for Spiritual Gangster and lululemon.
With mindful guidance and love, he challenges each student while nourishing the body with breath awareness and clarity of alignment. Yet, his calm, focused instruction and peaceful energy makes even the most difficult positions accessible to everyone. His love of music and unique ability to integrate songs into his teaching creates an overall experience sure to leave you connected, grounded, inspired and aligned.
