All classes at Yoga by Donation are multi-level classes and, thereby, are open to beginners and drop-ins; and all end with a relaxation or meditation. However, within this general framework, each instructor is unique and teaches the style of yoga he or she loves and describes as follows. Over time, we hope you will learn to find something of value in each style and embrace that we occasionally sub for each other. For more info on each class, click on the title line in the above calendar or scroll down this page. Classes are listed in alphabetical order by teacher's first name!


Angela's Anxiety/Panic Attack Support Group

Practicing the power of presence: Reiki-infused Support

I suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for many years. I have learned so much along the way. I have overcome anxiety! I feel compelled to share what I have learned. This group is a place to gather, to share our stories, to talk, vent, learn from each other, and to support one another. Anxiety/Panic attack self-help support group. This is not a substitute for professional care.

"If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. As soon as you honor the present moment, unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes involved with a sense of quality, care, and love-even the most simple action." - Eckhart Tolle

Angela's One-on-One Reiki Healing Sessions

Reiki is a method of natural healing based on the application of Universal Life Force Energy. Human beings are energy systems. If we accept this premise, then life energy is the essential and most basic element of the human energy system.

Reiki involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki utilizes specific techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life force energy within the body.

Reiki is used to treat the whole body, to achieve relaxation. It facilitates the removal of blockages in energy flow and the dispersal of toxins. The energy channels are opened to allow the body to deal properly and naturally with both stress and the build-up of toxins. It can help you to cope with anxiety while allowing you to achieve complete relaxation. It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that touches on all levels: body, mind and spirit.

To schedule a 20-30 minute one-on-one Reiki Energy Healing with Angela on the 4th Saturday of the month, contact Angela directly at 603-969-8961 or email her at

Angela Colley Bio
I myself first learned of Reiki years ago at a hospital. I was moved by what I witnessed. The Reiki Practitioner had a way of relaxing the patients while they lay in their hospital beds, before their surgery, by playing soft meditational music and placing her hands on or over certain areas of the patients body. It was a life changing moment for me. This was nothing I had ever heard of or seen before in my life. At that time I did not fully understand what Reiki really was. After a lot of research, I learned of the healing benefits of Reiki, and that If I learned it I may be able to help my daughter with her severe menstrual cramps, lower back pain, and anxiety. So began my journey.
 I have trained with a wonderful Usui Reiki Master, StacyLynn. She taught me how to be a strong, compassionate, intuitive healer. After studying and certifying as an Usui Reiki III Master/Teacher/Practitioner, I decided that I must help others as well. I learned along the way that Reiki healing is what I am meant to do.


Ashtanga 18 with Tom
Come practice or learn the initial flow of Ashtanga Yoga, focus on breath, get your heartrate up moving from Mountain to cobra and back again, with many variations in between. This class will consider the beginning 10 and 18 poses of Ashtanga flow as a way of introducing you to the practice to decide if you want to commit to daily routine. It is led by Tom who has been an Ashtanga student for one year.

First Wednesday of every month

Tom's Bio
Tom came to yoga and meditation 14 years ago, trying to find peace and release from depression and struggles with life. Beginning with a practice he shared with his wife,who had been practicing yoga for 35 years , he found his daily practiced helped him to move to joy and peace of mind. Now wanting to teach what he needs to learn, a deeper Ashtanga Practice, his desire to share helps him find that core of Love and kindness within.

Bob's Revolutionary Yoga Class

Bob's Revolutionary Yoga class provides a moderate total-body workout, a meditative breathing practice and sequences of stretches designed to strengthen and release tension in your muscles, calm your mind and nurture your spirit. Though no two classes are exactly the same, each includes a time to dedicate your practice to a personal transformation goal, a warm-up sequence, and a balanced selection of back bends, forward bends and twists in several platforms, including standing, on hands and feet, on hands and knees, on your stomach, sitting and on your back. During relaxation on your back, Bob offers a shoulder press and neck pull to help reset your body alignment.

Guidelines for Taking Bob's Class

Breathe Slowly, Evenly, and Deeply
Breathe in and out through your nose whenever possible. In addition, by constricting the back of your throat, churn the air on both the inhales and exhales making the ‘ocean’ sound only you need to hear. When inhaling, fill your belly first, then fill your chest or simply take air in as long as you can. Exhale slowly and toward the end of the exhale tighten your pelvic floor and pull your belly in, pushing out all the air. Then release these ‘energy locks’ during the inhales.

Treat the Class as Your Personal Time
My class provides you a carefully sequenced and timed flow of postures for you to explore, co-create, and befriend. This means working each posture where it feels good to you and for as long as it feels good to you. Come out of any posture early and stay out for as long as you need to rest. Listen to your muscles. In time you will know when your muscles are happy to work and to be stretched, and when they are not. Whenever your muscles are not happy, keep co-creating and modifying the posture until they are. If the ‘platform’, the position in which the posture begins, is not easily accessible to you, either modify the platform or skip that posture and learn substitute postures that you can access easily.

Keep Your Eyes Closed When You Can
This will strengthen your internal focus and will become easier as you trust your interpretation of my verbal cues. Open your eyes when you want to confirm what I am saying. And when your balance feels precarious, gaze steadily and softly at a focal point in front of you.

Make the Circular Movements Work for You
Consider the mostly circular rotations as permission to move in ways that feel good to you. These small movements, which do not need to be circular, serve four purposes. First, they work and warm the muscles creating them and raise your heart rate, adding to the aerobic benefit of the class. Second, the movements help you spiral deeper into each posture slowly and safely. Third, the movements allow you to explore alignments and angles that you might not have accessed without the movements. Finally, the movements massage tensions from your muscles that are pressing into your mat. For example, when you are standing, you create a foot massage by shifting your weight around the bottoms of your feet.

Meditate on Physical Sensations
Some 80% of the value of the class derives from focusing your mind's attention on the physical sensations of muscles working and stretching and on the details of breathing. As soon as you notice a thought taking you away from these points of focus, gently but quickly bring your attention back without a self-judging thought. With regular practice you will be able to increase the peaceful time between your thoughts.

Transform Pain into an Opportunity to Release Tension
Sometimes, due to an injury or fear, a posture needs to be avoided. But most of the time when you encounter pain or strain in a posture, it is because you have gone into the posture too quickly. Back off on the posture or on the size of the rotations and work the posture at the doorstep of pain. Concentrate on the elements of breathing noted above and the physical sensations you are creating. Wait for an invitation from your muscles to go take on more posture. Where there was pain or strain, there will now be an opportunity to experience the pleasurable sensation of releasing tension in your muscles.

Trust Your Body, Mind, and Spirit Will Benefit from Regular Practice

In each class you can expect a total body workout in which your legs, arms, neck, abdominal and other core muscles will all be worked and stretched somewhat evenly. My intention is for you to work and release tension from every muscle group, vitalize every organ, and tone every cell in your body. As this happens in your body, anxieties and confusions will leave your mind, and your capacity to accept yourself and serve others will grow. The more you practice the more connected you will feel to the moment, your inner spirit, and all beings!

Bob Vaccaro: Bio

Why I Teach Slow Motion Yoga
Pperhaps due to an early childhood injury and 20 years of jogging, the arthritic symptoms I developed in my hips resisted treatment from a wide array of medical and energy healers. However, these symptoms respond favorably to the style of yoga I developed over the past 10 years. Emotional well-being follows my physical healing. To me, this is a strong spiritual calling. I love yoga because it works for me on many levels. Over and over, I hear students declare profound physical benefits and shifts in the way they feel and the way they live. I love that several have become successful yoga teachers.

Evalyn's Restorative Yoga
Evalyn's class focuses on relaxing the mind thru the internal practice of paying attention to breath and let all else fall away. The postures are held for at least 2.5 minutes and at most 10 minutes. This supportive yoga allows the body temperature to increase thru deep breathing, compression and prolonged supported asanas. Raising the body's temperature reduces the viscoscity of synovial fluid which allows the thinner warmed fluid to flow to connective tissue of joints, lubricating them and increasing range of motion. Compression postures also create a conducive body environment to move lymphatic fluids to heighten the immune system. Come to class and leave the class feeling like a marshmallow.

Evalyn's Silent Yoga

This class is meant for the yoga student who pays attention to aural instructions. The student is directed to move body parts to end up in a final asana that is held for 8 complete breaths minimally.

Gloria's Raja Yoga Meditation Class
Raja yoga is also know as Royal yoga. It is the study and meditation that connects to the highest and true identity of a human being. Raja yoga is not physical exercise. It is the discovery and contemplation about the highest self. In this journey one identifies the innate strengths, your positive qualities/virtues and the lowest points or weaknesses in personality. When practicing Raja yoga meditation daily the lowest points vanish and the highest points or positive qualities become stronger in order to live in the Peace, Happiness and Bliss. It is a journey of personal development and self-transformation.The end result of practicing Raja yoga is that regardless of the problem or situation one is in, the elevated consciousness enables one to overcome it and to keep and deeply treasure peace, love and happiness in life.

Raja yoga translates to the "highest union' and refers to the level of consciousness that places the meditator in touch with the Supreme Being. It enables the practioner to put a brake on the rush of thoughts which fill the mind with stress and tension. One acquires refined powers of judgement and discrimination so one's actions can remain calm in the most chaotic situations.
