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.

 Still water runs deep. ⠀ .⠀ #listen ⠀ .  @finlay0901  COME AND FILM WITH US! We are looking for 3-4 people who would like to join us in Stanley (Perthshire) for 2h of filming on Tuesday, 5th June (10-1pm). We will do some yoga and snack on delicious energy balls. Who is in?! We promise good laughs, yummy snacks, breathtaking views and celebrity status of course  you don’t have to advanced yogi! We are going to do simple beginner stuff that looks good on the camera so no crazy straining, making you look like a zombie core!
 Going though Wednesday like a BOSS! Seriously, Wednesday is my looongest day, and works out as a 13h day and yeah in the evening I will probably resemble a zombie but I have connected with so many cool and inspiring people, was gifted a flower plant that you apparently can’t kill and the sun is out! #lovemyjob even even the hours are long   INTEGRITY | I often ask my students what do they actually want from yoga? Once they get their answers, I ask them to keep their eyes on the ball though out the WHOLE class so the physical poses they do and the choices they make are done with integrity ➖ they follow their desires and the promises they made to themselves. ⠀ ⠀ Yoga is a hell of a lot harder when you are paying attention! ⠀ ⠀ How often do you drift away from what you are feeling and you are just ‘hanging’ there, waiting for the next pose? How often have you said to yourself: I really need a new job, healthy life work balance, better food choices. How often do you wake up and just power though the day doing the same old thing, mindlessly, not asking yourself the real question: what do you actually want and what do you need? How’s that for a life metaphor? How often are you just hanging there without asking for the purpose? ⠀ ⠀ To me integrity is when you ask the hard questions, starting with your mat! And stick to the answers throughout the practice, not just during the first & last 5min of the class. So the choices you make (knee up/knee down, easier but safer vs. harder but more risky) come from a place of strength and integrity.
 Have you seen the new @tisoonline post? @hillgoers @jo_thingy and @ospreymountaineering on top of Sgor Mor last Friday! (Plus me behind the camera trying to snap a decent pic before Garry was blown away by the wind ) #claimyourcorbett #mytiso  Where should we take #kiltedyoga next? Any suggestions? ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ @nakedhighlander @pricklythistle @21stcenturykilts
