Damaris’ love of yoga was first sparked in her teens and has grown to become an integral part of her life along with other practices such as meditation, Qi Gong and Feldenkrais. She was first drawn to yoga as she loved how it made her feel, and soon the positive effects of having a calmer mind and more easeful body began to reflect in her life off the mat. She believes yoga and mindfulness are invaluable tools for dealing with the stresses and challenges that life likes to throw at us, and can also help us to find magic in the small things. She feels lucky to be able to help people discover the benefits and joys of yoga, no matter their age or experience.
She teaches Slow Flow, Restorative and Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga as well as Chair Yoga to adults with disabilities.
Damaris trained at Triyoga, one of London’s leading yoga centres, on a two-year course (accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance USA) under the inspirational guidance of Jean Hall, Mimi-Kuo Deemer, Aki Omori and Carlos Pomeda. She is a fully insured, qualified yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga.
She has completed the 6-month Liberate mentoring programme lead by Naomi Absalom and is assisting on Triyoga's Teacher Training with Lisa Sanfilippo and Erika Tourell.
She features in thev book Yoga Student Handbook edited by Sian O'Neill published in September 2019.
When she's not teaching or practising yoga she can be found in her ceramic studio or pottering in the garden.
