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.

So you don't teach on autopilot just because someone told you that this is how yoga (or any other sport or exercise) is done! It allows you to make smart and educated choices, cue your poses better and appreciate how different every body is and that pre-approved alignment or pose may not be right for every person! ⠀ .⠀ I am so incredibly inspired by everything I have learned for the past week at the Yoga for Athletes training and want to share it with you guys now! ⠀ .⠀ There are still two spaces left at my Anatomy Mentorship starting 5th November. Join me and let's discover human anatomy together. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #yoga #yogagirl #yoganatomy #anatomy #anatomynerd #broughtyferry #dundee #mentorship #yogastudio #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #fitness #fitnessmotivation
 Myths about DOMS and lactic acid ➡️During exercise, your body needs energy, and it breaks down molecules to get that. As a result of this metabolic process, your cells naturally become more acidic which makes your muscles feel like they’re burning. But lactate doesn’t cause this. Lactate is actually a by-product of the metabolic process and serves as a buffer and slows down the rate at which the cells become acidic. People produce lactate all the time, even at rest. It clears your system 30-minutes to one-hour after working out. ➡️A study in Clinics in Sports Medicine found that DOMS is the result of microtrauma in the muscles and surrounding connective tissues, which causes inflammation. ➡️This is one of the things we are going to explore in my Anatomy Mentorship as well as other ‘myths’ of the fitness and yoga world. ➡️ two spaces are still remaining, join us on 5th November. .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #doms #anatomy #anatomynerd #myths #yogagirl #fitness #fitnessmotivation #workout #yoga #muscle #strength  Seattle you have been so good to me! I had a chance to hang out with some of my favourite people, learn from my dear teacher, eat amazeballs food, and the weather was so much better that anyone predicted (clearly they haven't been to Scotland yet and don't know what a real rain means ) I will be back Pacific North West  ❤️ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #travelwithmeaning #soulfuladventure #inspiration #travel #wanderlust #adventuremore #intothewild #scotland #stayandwander #ciarngorms #adventurethatislife #liveadventurously #letsgosomewhere #wherewillwegonext #livewild #doyoutravel #theglobewanderer #ourplanetdaily #discoverearth #visitscotland #theglobewanderer #yogaretreat #yoga #retreat #yogaeverywhere #seattle #yogamedicine #ym500 #ym1000
