Educating parents and children together to be "Trained for a Lifetime" has been a passion of mine for over Forty years. We all need to help spread this education. Statistics have increased to 6.5 million fatalies in backyard swimming pools in the United States. As a certified instructor for every age, I am here to teach skills and safety to parents and children to prevent such senseless tragedies.

She's worked with our young boys for several summers and they adore her. She commands respect and they listen to her. She cares so deeply for all her students and knows the skill of swimming can be a life-saver. Coach Donna has helped our boys progress so much faster than any group (or private) class we've taken.

We introduced our oldest to Donna around 22 months (amazingly, old, by Donna’s standards) and our youngest around 10 months. Donna does a fantastic job of coaching both the kids and the parents on water safety and early life swimming skills. She is super energetic and her passion for kids and the water is infectious. Our girls LOVE her…and the results prove it! Our oldest daredevil even put Donna’s techniques to the test a few months after her 2nd birthday. She was fishing off our dock, leaned over, and in an instant, she was in headfirst into the cold water. I was standing right next to her, but it happened so fast, I couldn’t react. Fortunately, thanks to Donna’s training (“REACH!”), our daughter instinctively righted herself, turned back to the dock and reached up where I grabbed her and was able to pull her out. Donna’s training turned what could have been a tragedy, into a few tears, a sigh of relief, and a cold, wet hug. So, while we hope to never have to put Donna’s methods to the test again, we are absolute believers in her philosophy to start them early and will be forever grateful!

Being a healthcare professional in practice for over 45 years, I was formerly a 'skeptic' about the benefits of Yoga and related exercise and wellness practices, but at the suggestion of another of her students, I attended one of her Yoga classes years ago. I have been a dedicated 'follower' and student of yoga in general and of her class offerings in particular since then. The physical, mental, and 'spiritual' benefits that I gain from attending her classes will continue to be a major part of my fitness and overall wellness routine.
The teacher-student 'bonds' that Ms. Parsons develops and nurtures with each and all of her students is another major reason that I regularly attend her classes, wherever she may be assigned to teach them. She always has a hug and words of humor, encouragement and optimism to share with students in each of her classes, and she especially does so on a more personal, 1:1 basis with those students experiencing or going through special situations or "Life's ups and downs".
I am very grateful for the fitness programs and facilities in our area that utilize Ms. Parsons skills and talent in their yoga programs.
I would welcome the opportunity to provide any further comments in person and on her behalf, should the opportunity arise to do so.
