Daria Wall

Daria began exploring the world of yoga in 2008, initially practising Vinyasa Yoga. She quickly became fascinated by Forrest Yoga and travelled across the world to train with Ana Forrest and completed the Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training in Hong Kong.

Students often say that her appetite for yoga is infectious. Daria strongly believes in working without struggle, feeling free and taping into our own ecstatic spectrum. Daily practice, using Forrest Yoga poses and sequences, strengthened her own injured spine, and it was that injury that started Daria’s fascination with the human body and its biomechanics.

Daria is trained in full body massage, myofascial release, Thai massage and Chinese medicine. She has also studied with a Forrest Yoga guardian Brian Campbell and an international yoga teacher, author, acupuncturist and health & wellness specialist, Tiffany Cruikshank.

Daria is continuing her journey with Forrest Yoga by completing the mentorship with the Forrest Yoga Guardian, Sandra Heider. Excitingly, recently Daria was a volunteer at the Elephant Conservation Rescue Centre near Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, and had a privilege to care for these remarkable creatures but also teach yoga for the visitors of the Centre. In January 2015 she is going back to Thailand to complete a Professional Thai Massage 150 Hour training at the Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai.

I am passionate about teaching and working with people and therefore I aim to create a safe environment for a mixture of bodywork or playful but challenging and dynamic classes that may require students to step out of their comfort zone in order to go deeper in their own body and enjoy the journey they are on.

 Hey friends, I wrote it for DP but need to share it here. If you are a beauty therapist or work in hospitality I don’t know how you can survive the next two weeks, still do Xmas and remain a human. I always see so many injured and overworked friends after Xmas is over SO if your neck or any other part of your body (yeah ur ass too lol!) is giving up on you but you still need to work, DM me and I will meet up with you somewhere in town and put tape to ease it off! It won’t fix it but stop for it being worse. Free because we are friends and I hate seeing you all broken in the new year. ⠀ ⠀ Also, Debbie is soo serene here! No one knows she was shouting at me a minute later  ⠀ ⠀ ・・・⠀#repost from @dp_wellbeing ⠀ Why Christmas season seems to be anything but merry? I read today that the week leading up to Christmas is the most stressful time of the year - as families feel pressure to deliver "the perfect" Xmas and get everything ready. The statistics were really sad - 74% of us feel stressed and exhausted. ⠀ ⠀ Telling you to just stop stressing won’t really make any difference, neither will ranting about the importance of just being together. It is a magical time so go and get it all amazing as I bet it will be worth it. ⠀ ⠀ However, to save you some sanity - how about you book yourself in for a yoga class, just a quick one. Just do a last minute drop in and put your phone on silent for 1 full hour. Or close bedroom door and do some stretches and breathing. Just 10min will do. Or go for a wee walk and breath fresh air. Or go and get your hair or nails done (especially if you are a beauty therapist and you help everyone else to look glam). Find those random moments of mindfulness and finding yourself in the madness or festive prep. ❤️  Happiness is simply different perspective.

 I have spent a big part of the last decade traveling back and forward to the US to study with some of the best teachers and feel absolutely delighted and proud that they are coming to Scotland next year. @scottish_yoga_conference brings world yoga TO Scotland! Putting Scotland and Dundee in particular, on the map of yoga in the whole world. It’s not a small, local event, it’s an international conference! Debbie said something to me today that was really big - “so many of us would be unlikely to have the opportunity to attend their classes”. This is so important- this conference gives us all an opportunity to study with someone you normally wouldn’t be able to meet in your local class.  Three musketeers ❤️
