Yoga is the embodied practice of ancient Hindu philosophy that teaches us how to cultivate a deep awareness of our mental and emotional bodies through movement, breath work, and meditation. Yoga classes with Persimmon Herb School offer a full yogic experience through a combination of gentle exercise, deep breathing, relaxation and guided meditation.
Classes are run on a donation basis. All are welcome regardless of ability to pay. Whenever possible we suggest offering $12-$15/class or $50 for a five class package.

Alongside our joy and gratitude, we all carry some degree of pain and suffering. Whether the pain is physical or emotional, personal or collective, acute or generational, yoga helps us manage and perhaps even offer a way out. Through guided relaxation, yogic breathing (pranayama), personalized exercise (asana), and meditation Colleen can help you train the mind and body to work together toward health and stability. Sliding scale payment options are available. Click here to book your session with Colleen easily and securely through Heal.me
Yoga found me in my mid twenties during a time of isolation, confusion, and depression. The gentle exercise helps me regain a sense of control in my physical body, pranayama allows me to clear the noise and distractions from my subtle body, meditation helps me understand the source of emotional insecurity, and chanting connects me with the devotional nature of my soul. In 2009 I traveled to a Sivananda ashram in the Himalayas of northern India to learn as much as I could about this incredibly complex and beautiful practice. The 30 day intensive teacher training was both validating and transformative. I have been teaching and practicing traditional yoga ever since, completing the advanced teacher training in 2012, as well as an accessible yoga course in 2015. I continue to study and practice yoga philosophy in community with South Asian teachers to honor the Hindu roots of yoga. – Colleen Donahoe
