I would highly recommend Donna to anyone for your yoga instructions. She is so knowledgeable and individualizes the lessons to meet the needs of everyone. I myself learned that I hold my breathe when I'm talking and her class has helped me calm down and keep my heart rate in check. I have atrial Fib and sciatic both were greatly improved under Donna's care.

I especially wanted to thank you for all the wonderful yoga classes I have attended. Your classes nurtured my body and my soul. You taught me many life lessons of calm, peace and acceptance that I will carry with me always. It was such a pleasure to be able to do yoga on your porch overlooking the water, it brought a very spiritual atmosphere to each class. Each class I learned something different and explored my body in ways I could never imagine under your expert guidance . I have never met ANYONE more knowledgeable of anatomy than you.
People come and go through our lives and touch us in so many different ways. I feel so fortunate to have had you touch my life however briefly. Even though our time was short your impact has been so valuable. A teacher in every sense of the word. Thank you.

I was plagued with chronic lower back pain for many years due to back injuries that were complicated by degenerating discs. I tried chiropractors and epidurals, but the pain would return and increase with physical activity. I thought that I was doomed to a life of constant pain, until I started yoga with Donna. At first, I was able to alleviate the pain through the practice. Soon I was able to get through the rest of the day without pain, and I could tell that I had increased in strength and flexibility. My posture improved, and I learned ways to stretch and relieve pain at home. I will never forget the morning that I woke up pain free, and I knew that it was due to yoga. I love Donna's classes and continue to enjoy physical, mental and spiritual improvement. She is a fantastic teacher and mentally connects with each and every class to provide exactly what we all need. I can honestly say that Donna has helped me to improve my quality of life and change my attitude about aging.

I took my first yoga class with Donna at age 84. At the time I was looking to improve my balance and strengthen my back. I would throw my back out and be in bed for 3 days. I am now 87, my back is so much stronger and can stand on 1 foot!

I can't begin to tell you how much better I feel, my hips, my back, my legs, the way my hip joints move. If I don't practice once a week it comes back. The lower back/hip chronic ache is gone. Posture has improved, my breathing has improved much more aware of breathing.

I enjoy Donna's you classes. It makes me feel alive and gives me the assurance that I'm keeping my body healthy, GIVING MY BODY A GIFT, HONORING THE TEMPLE I LIVE IN. Donna's detailed knowledge of the workings of the human body allow her to gear poses to facilitate areas of difficulty, doing them a different way or using props, always being cautious. AND...where can you take yoga classes in Marathon, overlooking Florida Bay, watching birds fish in the shallows. It's simply fantastic!!!

For anyone wanting to attend a yoga session while in Marathon, I would highly recommend Donna Waldrop for the following reasons: She has created a very positive welcoming atmosphere for instruction. She really loves what she does and that is empowering . She is an extremely creative and enthusiastic instructor. She is constantly expanding her knowledge and skills. She has been known to pull out her anatomy book and point to the area we are working on. Her focus for the class is all about the participants. It obviously works because she has a regular following. She listens to individuals and helps them adapt a pose according to their physical abilities. I have also had a massage session with Donna. Again, I felt totally comfortable with her. Her focus was totally on me and helping me relax so that I could truly benefit from her skill in manipulation. I can honestly say that many times I'll leave the class and feel it's benefits for days both physically and mentally. Class attendee since 2006

The yoga sessions that I have attended have had a dramatic impact on my life. I no longer walk with a cane, my body functions better. Donna introduced me to my inner self, wow what a surprise to find me.

Donna’s yoga classes are always interesting. No two classes are like, there is always something new to be learned! Donna is conscious of each individual’s physical limitations, offering alternative ways to perform a posture so that all can participate. You will leave feeling calm, present and having had a good workout, as well as having a lot of fun along the way!

Absolutely terrific and I can't say enough great things about the yoga and massage. With her extensive (and ever increasing) knowledge base, she personalizes each session to your specific needs and has an uncanny ability to diagnose issues with just a visual - she then takes you to "What if ...."; and you find yourself almost immediately feeling a positive difference. My hips, back and legs thank her everyday. I am experiencing improved posture, flexibility and balance.

I love your yoga classes. I have been practicing yoga for more than 40 years in various states and countries and your classes are among the best. I love your creativity, knowledge and passion for what you do. I hope you never get tired of offering them and am so happy you are younger than me so I can look forward to attending for years to come. It is a highlight of my winter..
