Namaste, I am Doria and I am a Naked Yoga teacher and an ambassdor for body positivity.
I started practicing yoga in 2010, as a form of rehabilitation after a critical illness.
From that beginners class, I found that the clear, mindful asana instructions improved my memory, spatial relations, focus, and sense of connectedness with my mind and body. On a greater scale, the daily practice showed me the value of acting deliberately.Yoga was the key to my recovery and transformation, and now I live my life with a greater sense of purpose and intention.
Eventually my expanding yoga path led me to India and Bali to train as a professional teacher – I am now qualified in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Rocket Yoga, Yin, Mandala, and principles of Ayurveda and Shamanism.
But it was after a liberating experience at a festival that I decided to start practicing and teaching Naked Yoga.
There were no barriers, no inhibitions, and no restrictions – just like with yoga practice. Naked yoga finally taught me to accept my body and accept myself exactly how I am today, with all my imperfections, and I want to convey this feeling to anyone who practices with me.

I now teach a mix of private classes, group classes and retreats all around the world, spreading and sharing my passion for this ancient art that completely changed my life.
Follow up to my Classes page to find out all details and schedules, and to book.
As teacher and student, I offer my eternal gratitude to all my teachers, past and present… Catia Leite, Jamie Clarke, Dulce Aguilar and Manju Pattabhi Jois.
See you on the mat!
