Donna Walton - Yoga Teacher
I have practised yoga for about ten years. I started with my best friend as a way to keep us fit and healthy. Shortly after, I decided it was the best decision for my family and I to give up my job to take care of my terminally ill mum. During that time my best friend also fell ill with terminal cancer.
After I lost both of them to this unforgiving illness, I decided it was the right time return to work-but with a brand new profession.
Over a 6 month training course, whilst still working in the Physiotherapy department at Hillingdon, I completed my training with Yoga London. It was a massive commitment and besides my children is my greatest achievement to this day.
I am very passionate about yoga and fully believe there is so much more to Yoga than a flexible toned body and new found strength. Yoga is about a balance between the body and mind….. creating a whole person with inner confidence and a clarity that infiltrates into every aspect of one’s daily life. The discipline of the ancient art of the asanas (postures), and perfected breathing techniques leaves one feeling revitalised and focussed.
I specialise in Vinyasa Flow, a dynamic form of yoga often likened to a moving meditation. My teaching style is fun and creative, aiming to inspire my clients to improve their overall wellbeing. I work with tennis players, runners and cyclists helping them to achieve their training goals. My clients range from older adults, teenagers and people recovering from injury. My sessions are available to all levels and ages, especially beginners or people looking to deepen their practice.
I am a fully qualified, 325hr experienced registered yoga & pre-natal teacher with Yoga Alliance. I trained at Yoga London, Great Portland Street, under my course director Jonathan Francis Thompson.
I have recently trained in YIN Yoga. Yin Yoga is a slower paced style of yoga-a slow and deep stretch where you work as your own pace/ability. Yin Yoga works your fascia and connective muscles.
I have taught in several venues including David Lloyd, Fit club and Darwin Wellness, as well as teaching Pregnancy Yoga and Corporate workplace Yoga. I have also taught gentle Chair Yoga to Young onset dementia patients via London Borough of Hillingdon and I believe Yoga should be for everyone.
I am very proud to be a brand ambassador for Blossom Yoga Wear. As an existing customer I was absolutely thrilled to be welcomed into the team. I genuinely love the brand which means I am confident to recommend it to my students. I am especially excited that this collaboration means my loved ones and students can order the collection with a special discount.
