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.Daria Wall
