Dona Holleman:“Yoga c’est moi”


Bangkok-born Dutchwoman Dona Holleman has practiced yoga for 50 years. She played a major role in its Italian development. But she objects to the way it’s taught and received in the West, where she says the practice exists to soothe egos and rein in waistlines. As a result, she’s created an approach that uses the creatures closest to her heart: Horses. In her Normandie center, she tries teaching students and visitors how the life and movements of horses can teach people how to live their lives better and more purely.
