Hi! My name is Donisha Reed. I have been teaching yoga classes since 2015. I curate these classes because I truly believe that movement can be medicine. I hope that it will help my participants push past any fear or insecurities they may have about their bodies and enjoy it for what it was made to do: BREATHE & MOVE. I also hope that once they move past that fear, the confidence they gain can translate into other sustainable wellness practices that further feeds their mind, body, and spirit.
