Donna Lambert was introduced to yoga by her future sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Jean and William, in Bali in 1995. When she and her husband Rob moved to Oxford in 1996, they found an inspirational teacher in John EvansAdd a Tooltip Text, now a Shadow Yoga teacher in London. They discovered Ashtanga yoga in Sue Pennington’s classes in Oxford, and started attending workshops with visiting teachers. Donna’s own practice and her teaching is greatly influenced by her ongoing studies with Nancy Gilgoff, as well as Manju Jois, David Keil, John Scott, and David Swenson.

Training with The Life Centre in 2003/2004 on their first teacher training course, she worked with inspiring teachers such as Liz Lark, Richard Freeman, Tias Little, Rod Stryker and Aadil Palkhivala.

In July 2007 Donna completed Mukunda Stiles’ Structural Yoga Therapist training with full certification. Find information on SYT at .
In January 2008 Donna completed the British Wheel of Yoga’s Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers Module developed by Cathy-Mae Karelse. Ayurveda, “the science of life” is the sister science to Yoga and is concerned with healing and restoring health in relation to all aspects of life. It highlights the fact that we all have individual constitutions and how we live our life and practise yoga needs to reflect this. Yoga is the science of self-realisation and Ayurveda is the science of self-healing.
Now based in Lausanne, Switzerland, Donna continues to teach group and individual yoga and yoga therapy sessions.

Surrender to yoga, for
Where is the conflict when the truth is known?
Where is the disease when the mind is clear?
Where is death when the breath is controlled?”
