Be in the Moment with Qi Gong & Yoga Ayrshire
Breathe In, Breathe Out
Welcome. My name is Donna Johnson and I have been practising Qi Gong since 2015, the transformation that Qi Gong has made to my life is immeasurable. In 2018 I decided that it was time to share what I had learned and started teaching. I hope that others will now benefit from the wonderful powers of Qi Gong as much as I have.
I practise Qi Gong on a daily basis and am committed to continuous personal development to improve my knowledge on this wonderful gentle, yet powerful form of exercise, and completed my 2 year training in Qi Gong in 2019. I am also qualified in Dru Yoga. This gentle form of yoga is ideal for those who think they cannot do yoga,( if I can do it, anyone can!) , it also shares similar forms and sequences to that of Qi Gong as well as focusing on the breath, energy and mindfulness movements.
In 2017 I undertook an 8 week training course in Mindfulness for Stress Reduction, I have found this course and it’s techniques very useful in day to day life and enjoy the meditative aspects which I incorporate into my Qi Gong Classes.
My background was initially in Sport & Leisure and I worked and taught in this field for sometime. I also spent many years teaching Line Dancing (don’t judge me!!), so I find the return to teaching is natural for me.
I hope that you will join me for weekly Qi Gong classes in Prestwick & Kilmarnock. I also run Dru Yoga Classes in Prestwick, Kilmarnock & Irvine.
Qi Gong and Yoga classes are available for one to one or small groups in my garden cabin in Symington.

Love Dru Yoga on a Monday with Donna. Not long started but feel so much more relaxed after the class. Donna makes you feel at ease with her calmness and great personaity. Would definately recommend. Hoping to try Qi Gong at some point too.
I didn't know anything about Qi Gong when I started a year ago. The class has benefited me greatly both mentally and physically. Donna's teaching style is encouraging and nurturing. I always leave the class feeling better; more in my body with a refreshed mind.
My Mum and I love going to Dru Yoga on Mondays. It is suitable for all ages and Donna encourages you to not exceed the limits of your body which makes the class accessible for everyone. It sets us up for the week of work ahead and is a very calming way to shake off the Monday stress. Donna is an amazing Yogi and has a wonderful personality as well as a very calming voice for the relaxation time at the end of the class. I feel the rewards of practising Yoga as my body feels healthier. If you are wondering whether to try it out I would say "go for it!". I can't recommend it highly enough.
