  • Judy Orloff says:

    Pathways to a Centered Body is an exquisite and important book. The writing, photographs and illustrations are lucid, accessible and gorgeous. Donna’s ability to weave together objective, scientific data with living, breathing, first person experience is unusual and extremely satisfying. I felt addressed at every level – physical, energetic, mental/emotional, intellectual and spiritual – and I felt respected and cared for as the reader. Donna offers us a detailed map and guides us gently and with consummate skill through the vast terrain of our own experience, taking us home to our true center. As a Yoga practitioner and teacher I refer to this book often, rereading particular passages, practicing appropriate sequences and being inspired by the embodied wisdom that is reflected in these pages. I’ve never had the privilege of studying with Donna in person so I am especially grateful to have this book as a vehicle to learn from a compassionate, wise master.
