Yoga Flow
- Vinyasa with Donna Jay
ॐ जय राम श्री राम
This class is designed to enable you to grow and cultivate your yoga practice in a way that is challenging, graceful and honest. Using the fundamentals of vinyasa with intelligent  asana sequencing, universal alignment principles and compassion, the practice becomes a weaving of breath, mindfulness, power, freedom, grace, love, devotion, humor and gratitude.
In this class I offer a creative, dynamic , often challenging yet always nurturing yoga flow in which emphasis is placed on quality of breath, realigning with trust to our compassionate wise and noble self, connecting authentically to the physical, mental, emotional, and intuitive bodies; the flow becomes a means to build physical strength balance and awareness thus leading to mental clarity, peace - Oneness. We practice to become clear and consistent enough to be aligned with our truth - to live with integrity as our thoughts words and what we do stand true with our hearts - with our dream. By warming and opening the body, a safe space is created in which to heal and uplift the spirit. I wish to offer space in which to move through mental or physical blocks, and encouragement toward moving within our unbounded creative intelligence, full potential and that which dwells within our hearts.
Class will begin with traditional sanskrit mantra or chanting, meditation and pranayama ( breathing technique). we will move safely through asana sequence often including : sun salutations, core work, standing poses, seated forward bends, balancing, twists, inversions, arm balancing, backbends and conclude with deep relaxation.
Classes will be of mixed levels so beginners and more seasoned practitioners can learn from each other.
modifications will be given as well as more advanced work for those who are ready.
Yoga is a path of Self study and Self Knowledge. What we learn 'on the mat' can be immediately applied and integrated into all of our relationships and actions.
It is a path that leads to ' healing the estrangement between the self and everything else' - Sri Louise




about Donna Jay Rubin:

Donna Jay has been involved in a creative practice for as long as she can remember. Through her lifelong explorations and studies of dance, music, writing, theater and art, she was introduced early on to mind/body breathing techniques to strengthen and heal the physical body, build concentration and focus, transform mental afflictions and blockages, and to create open energetic state in which to allow creative gifts a path in which to flow.
She is ever grateful for the opportunity to share in the teachings of Yoga and feels blessed to be part of a community that serves to bring more joy and balance into the world. She received her first yoga certification through It's Yoga while living in San Francisco, where she has spent a total of 10 years dancing and playing amongst the diverse wealth of teachers in the vibrant bay area Dance and Yoga community. She began instructing Yoga in SF about 9 years ago and has continued to train, practice and teach wherever she goes. She also specializes in guiding children in creative movement, music and yoga practice .Donna is a graduate of UC CCM drama dept.

In 2008 she formed the 3 Legged Dog Yoga Collective, a community healing arts studio in Northside, named after Donna's beloved dog and teacher, Bunny!

She is delighted to help guide and empower students to grow and cultivate a Yoga practice in a way that is challenging yet always nurturing, graceful, honest, kind hearted and steady. Weaving of breath, generosity, mindfulness, joyful effort, meditation, fortitude, freedom, grace, devotion, gratitude and love
" Learning how to love is the goal and purpose of spiritul life - not learning how to develop psychic powers, not learning how to bow, chant, do yoga, or even meditate, but learning to love.  Love is the truth.  Love is the light." - Lama Surya Das

३ लेग्गेद दोग

Bunny loves happy puppy pose!

About 3Legged Dog .....

Bunny was my faithful companion of 13+ years. In 2007 she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma( bone cancer) and underwent surgery to remove her front leg.
Her healing journey, her courageous heart, her unwavering spirit and her physical grace have been a constant inspiration and motivation for my yoga practice. I am continually learning from her ability to remain steady and experience the simple joys of being alive on this earth in the present moment as well as her non attachment to that which no longer serves.
Just a couple months before her 14th birthday and nearly 7 years as a tripod/cancer survivor Bunny was laid to rest in August of 2013, her body could no longer sustain her but her spirit continues to shine and uplift.
