A few words about DTouch owner, RYT 500+hrs certified Instructor Daria Kilburn:
 
Daria started practicing yoga in her late twenties and throughout her life always being a competitive athlete in horse back riding and training horses, yoga was not something that came really easy to her. It was and sometimes still is a struggle to overcome the powerful ego inside and surrender, surrender to the beauty of the yoga practice and the stillness of the mind through meditation. In her early 30s Daria started teaching yoga in Austria, her home country. In 2014 she made a life changing decision to marry her soul mate and move with her horse to Canada – this is when she became fully devoted to teaching yoga and practicing holistic healing modalities such as JSJ-acupressure at her home practice at Wizard Lake. Ashtanga yoga and yin yoga practice are the two styles that make Daria complete and feeling at home wherever she might be: teaching retreats or workshops in Europe or across Canada.
 
In her own words the most important is: “It is the true inner smile from the inside out, from the soul, from the heart that makes every day simply fantastic! Be in the NOW and enjoy every moment…just BE!”

A few words about YOGA:
 
What is YOGA? Why is there such a hype about YOGA?
 
In the 21st century we know many different Yoga Styles. Just to name a few: Ashtanga, Anusara, Hatha, Hot, Iyengar, Kundalini, Traditional, Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga…
Collectively, the intent is the same throughout centuries: I feel this intent and the meaning of practicing yoga today is best expressed in the following quote from one of my favourite books:
“Yoga is far from simply being physical exercises. It is an aid to establishing a new perception of what is real, what is necessary and how to become established in a way of life, which embraces both inner and outer realities. This way of life is an experience which cannot be understood intellectually and will only become living know,ledge through practice and experience.”
(p.5,Asana Pranayama Mudra Bandha by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, Yoga Publication Trust, Munger, Bihar, India)
 
The word YOGA in Sanskrit literally translated means „unity“ or „to unite“. It is one of the 6 schools of Hindu Philosophy. The main aim of this unity is described as creating the understanding for individual body, mind and spirit and transforming it to the universal consciousness and understanding of our surroundings and it`s principles of evolution.
 
The first unified yoga system, known as „Yoga Sutras“ also referred to as the eight-fold path was introduced in the 2nd century BC by Patanjali. The eight-fold path consist of: Yama, Niyama, Asana,Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadi.
