Donny Starkins purposeful yoga

Donny Starkins is a international yoga instructor, mindfulness teacher, public speaker and personal development coach from Phoenix, Arizona. He has traveled the world for his yoga teaching, public speaking and personal coaching program called “The Shift”. We had a great chat about how yoga helped him get and stay sober while helping others achieve their goals, including NFL players Darren Waller (Raiders) and Tyrann Mathieu (Chiefs).

His coaching has truly helped his students during the unsettling times we find ourselves in. If you are a business traveler, his teachings and coaching can make you get ready for the “new normal” while trying to navigate what is business as usual during the lockdown times we live in.

Make sure to connect with Donny on his social media pages so you can see where he is traveling to next as well as when he will be teaching and coaching around his home base in Arizona.
