Emergencyoga was born out of years of practicing yoga in some of the most challenging  and most beautiful places on earth.

 

WELCOME to emergencyoga. I’m Donna (Donnaprana to my Blissology family) and I’m a yogi and a humanitarian.

From Palestine to rural Nepal, from Sudan to Pakistan, from the Maldives to Sri Lanka and Switzerland I practice yoga wherever I go and share that practice with whoever is ready and willing to join me.

And this practice has continued to make me feel awesome, amazing, alive, peaceful and connected to both the people around me and the planet I walk upon.

Deeply disturbed and saddened by the continuous violence around us both individual and collective, I decided to use my humanitarian experience, my Degrees in Health Science and Peace and Reconciliation and my love and practice of yoga to found emergencyoga and create a more peaceful world one love at a time.

My motivation is to create more peace in the hearts of all I cross paths with but especially those I share my practice with, in the hope that this group of individuals will eventually create a more collective and global peace within and for the world.

Deeply influenced by the wonder and awe of mother nature and planet earth and my teachers Eoin Finn and Bryan Kest, I've created emergencyoga as a yoga experience that supports people, especially humanitarians (and isn’t everyone a human-itarian?) to develop their own prana and life force in their very own unique way.

Inspired by the world around me and a huge sense of joy and fun, my emergencyoga classes, retreats and workshops are aligned with the flow of mother nature, respect for the planet and our uniqueness and will leave you feeling in love with life, yourself and the world around you.

MY Mission

I believe in creating world peace, one love at a time and I do this through the practice of yoga.

Through yoga, especially a practice that encompasses a deep connection to mother nature, each of us has the possibility to create a greater level of peace and love in our own hearts.  When we do that we are able to share that love and that sense of peace, calm and well-being with others and contribute to the collective peace, for the people and for the planet.

In my teaching I practice a healthy respect for you, founded in the belief that each of us are unique with our own specific set of needs, wishes and desires including those that relate to our yoga.  This translates into making sure that you are in charge of your yoga and how you practice it.  All teachers at emergencyoga act as guides, using their experience and training in the best way possible yet leaving the decisions about your practice up to you.
