My name is Donna Perrone and I am delighted to share my work with you. I hope to inspire you to create optimum health and well being in your life. My holistic health journey began in 1989 when seeking recovery from a chronic disease called Candida. I also suffered from constipation, acne, pms, inability to gain weight, panic attacks, and indigestion. I transitioned to a mostly live/raw food vegan diet, and made better lifestyle choices for dramatic health improvements.
I started my health group Accent on Wellness in NYC in 1995 to provide health events for the NYC community. I have taught workshops and retreats at many venues such as Accent on Wellness, The New Life Expo-NY, Urban Zen- Kris Carr, Integral Yoga Institute, Jivamukti Yoga Center, Transformation with Amy Rachelle, Dharma Yoga Center, The Raw Spirit Festival, and The Art of Living Center.
I am a Certified Colon Hydro-Therapist with my own wellness center, Gravity East Village, located in NYC. It features a staff of gravity method therapists, state of the art filtration, infra-red sauna, and workshops.
Interests: Yoga, nature, art, hiking, travel, and bird watching.
