Douchka is a 200-hour Yoga Alliance experienced registered yoga teacher with over a 10-year experience in yoga science. With a vast knowledge on Ayurveda, nutrition and aromatherapy, she considers herself an “eternal” student constantly exploring and researching on alternative therapies and techniques to help relieving aches and pains in our stressful world. She’s committed to her true mission of sharing yoga with others as a powerful Tool of Life.
Even though she's known for her original specialty - a unique restorative flow, on the floor, very grounding and nurturing - she also enjoys the challenge of teaching high energy “flow and hold-pose” sequences, paying special attention to proper alignment. Among other influencers, she's studied the Anusara principles of alignment with Kelly Haas, and shares those in her teaching as a foundation and to help students work on past injuries and present health conditions.
In 2011, she co-founded Yana Shala with the mission of developing and presenting workshops, seminars and retreats on the various aspects of the Yoga science, and other healing and self-development disciplines. She's currently co-leading a 200-hr teacher training curriculum in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
