About Us

I Love Eugene Yoga

“I was surprised and thrilled recently when my latest bone density test showed a big improvement!  I owe this to my regular attendance at Donna’s Eugene Yoga classes.  This class has impacted my overall health and is essential for postponing the effects of aging.  Thank you Donna and Eugene Yoga!”

“ Jennifer channels self-love ♡ ”

Chair Yoga: “Enjoyable work out & social group where I don’t have to worry about my sensitive knees or osteoporotic back. As Brie says “practice in a way that will make you want to continue practicing” and this class does that for flexibility and moderate strength.”

“ Amalia rocks! Such thoughtful classes. ”

In Lisa’s class one can find calm, peace, solace, and total relaxation.  With humility, compassion and wisdom of this practice, She helps one do that with her soothing voice guiding you into your inner self.  I always feel fulfilled at the end of each class and highly recommend this class to anyone seeking to become more familiar with their inner divinity.”

“ Laura is excellent at teaching you through a pose. I like her guidance. ”

“ I have been attending yoga regularly for the past month and I already see an improvement in my tennis game, as well as experiencing fewer injuries. I can’t wait to see what is does for my golf game. I feel as good after yoga as I do after a massage or a visit to my chiropractor and it is certainly cheaper. I am getting stronger and more flexible each week. Yoga rocks! ”

“ Recovering from a heart procedure to treat Supraventricular tachycardia, I was still having some of the same symptoms as before, such as racing heartbeat and palpitations along with dizziness and light-headedness. I started practicing yoga with Eugene Yoga twice a week and within a few weeks, I had a significant decrease in my symptoms. I also felt more relaxed, had more energy and felt “awakened” spiritually and more in tune with myself. I am amazed at the healing powers of yoga. ”

“ Yoga was such a big part of my healing process through my leave time. I probably never really expressed to my instructor how much I appreciated her and her support Yoga classes for help me feel great. The practice of Yoga provides the support I need for my pelvic floor issues. ”

“ I wanted to say that I received wonderful instruction on how to open and go into poses, so that I was able to have a deep experience. The instructor was very caring and knowledgeable, keeping me safe in the poses. I will definitely be coming back to take her class again next week. ”

Owner Spotlight

My interest in yoga began in 1994 while studying mind-body interactions during graduate school. Over the years I've studied several yoga, meditation, and relaxation techniques in pursuit of a better understanding of how mind-body connections affect and enhance health. I'm also a complete anatomy nerd, and love to infuse my classes with tidbits of knowledge about the wonders of human movement. As a lover of the outdoors, I've spent many happy hours surfing, rock climbing, hiking and camping. In 2008 a surfing accident resulted in a severe arm injury that set me on the journey to my current practice and a 2015 RYT-200 certification. I purchased Eugene Yoga in 2018 and am now focused on providing our community with a wide range of yoga practices guided by exceptional teachers who are steeped in wisdom and authenticity. I am honored to serve you as steward of Eugene Yoga. Feel free to contact me directly at [email protected].
