ABOUT

ABOUT DONALD SHAKES

Meet Donald Shakes, a passionate yoga instructor and founder of Shakes Yoga. Donald's journey into the world of yoga began in 2003 when he discovered Transcendental Meditation under the guidance of the late Carol Maher. This led him to explore other modalities, such as Reiki and Tibetan singing bowl healing, which further ignited his passion for holistic wellness.

Donald's interest in yoga eventually led him to try different styles of practice, starting with Bikram before venturing into Hatha Yoga, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Restorative, and Yin Yoga. But it was during his early Bikram days that he accidentally stumbled upon a Power Vinyasa Yoga class at his local studio in Surry Hills, NSW. This serendipitous moment was a turning point for Donald, as he knew he had found his calling.

Over the years, Donald has accumulated an impressive 3000+ hours of teacher training courses, assisting teacher training modules, alignment workshops, and anatomy courses. This extensive knowledge and experience have given him a deep understanding of the human body and the healing powers of yoga, meditation, and Tibetan Singing Bowls.

In 2009, Donald founded Shakes Yoga to help others become empowered through their bodies, using these ancient practices. His unique approach and life experiences have made him a sought-after instructor who can help his students tap into their inner strength, find balance, and unlock their full potential.

“I teach yoga because I have witnessed its transformational power in myself and in others. I encourage a deep connection to nature, community and the true teacher within. On and off the mat.”
