Do your own thing: Donna

Name: Donna Noble

Business: Curvesome Yoga – Helping to evolve the image of yoga

How did you first develop a passion for what you do?

A friend suggested we try yoga after seeing a picture of Madonna with her legs behind her head. The business is based upon my passion for yoga. My goal is to show that yoga is for every BODY. I work with curvy women to help them have the best yoga journey and think differently about their bodies in a positive way.

What were you doing before?

Working for a top 5 law firm in IT Management.

What gave you the courage to step out and do your own thing?

Being offered redundancy and realising I enjoyed the yoga life more than the corporate life.

What have been some of the struggles along the way?

The initial lack of financial security I’d become used to in my previous career. Lack of accountability and being my own boss means I can procrastinate.

What do you love about what you do?

I absolutely love this yoga journey and that I am able to take so many individuals along with me. Yoga has so many transformational benefits and I get to share these every single day on and off the mat.

What’s made you feel proud of what you’ve achieved?

That I have created something that has the potential to change lives – sounds like a cliche but it is true. I love challenging the status quo and making yoga more diverse and accessible.

What would you say to another woman contemplating doing her own thing?

Trust the process and go for it. You don’t want to live a life of regret.
