Episode Summary

On Ask Win today (Wednesday, February 6, 2019), Best-Selling Author, Win C welcomes Donna Melanson. Donna have formally been trained in Vinyasa, Restorative, Yin, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Pranayama, Vedic Thai Yoga, Prenatal and Childrens Yoga. Donna is not sure you can say she have any one speciality as her teaching has become, a blend of all her teachers. Donna first came to yoga when her was around around ten years old. Donna’s mother took her to a community center for a series of classes. Donna specifically remember doing the sun salutations and shavasana where the yoga teacher had us moving and breathing and then instructed us to relax different parts of our bodies moving from our heads to our toes. Donna loved it, but it would be a decade later before she took another class. This time it would be a Yin class and Donna hated it. At that time in Donna’s life there was no way she could sit still, she needed more of a Power Yoga class where Donna could really let out some steam. But isn't that like all of us. At different times in our lives, or maybe just because of our preferences, we need different types of yoga. It would be another decade later when Donna started hearing in my head the recurring chant of Yoga, Yoga, Yoga, almost as if Donna was chanting Toga like they did in the 1970’s classic movie Animal House. The chant haunted Donna and she must of said it out loud a time or two because a friend bought me a 30 min VHS Gentle Yoga tape, and a very thick and short foam cushioned mat for her 5’8″ body to practice on. Donna started practicing every morning, with her feet hanging off the mat, after, Donna would sit up to meditate. Because Donna felt a calm and a peace that Donna hadn't felt for a very long time. It was so easy to “just be” in that moment, So Donna did “just be” Donna sat there just as she was, content, and at peace at a time when things were falling apart around her. Donna was happy, and hooked, and never stopped practicing. Donna will forever be a student of this beautiful practice called Yoga, and now know that their are many styles of yoga for whatever stage of life that we are in, or for whatever we need in this moment and time. Donna will continue to share what she have learned through her teaching; through the writings on her blog www.goldilocksblog.com, and through the inspiring sunrise views and vast horizons that surround us all, that we get to see every morning live on www.periscope.tv/azulyoga.
