TESTIMONIALS

“Dear Doria,

Thank you again for a memorable first session with you; as soon as I return from France I am looking forward to our next session. You are a perfect teacher for me, balancing perfectly my desire to be pushed, with your precise observation of my limitations and desire to get the move completed as correctly as possible. I felt totally safe in the knowledge that you knew exactly what you are doing and was able to impart this knowledge to me. You also make it fun; it is a real pleasure to practice yoga with you, thank you again so much.

Namaste

“Doria made me feel completely at ease, comfortable, unjudged and safe in my own skin. I thought she was coming from a place of depth, sensitivity and wisdom. Her training really shows, but it is more than that – I see her as also putting her essential humanity and depth into how she teaches and engages with others. When I asked her to share why the naked part of the practice is important, I loved her answer. She said it is about showing up with no barrier, no artifice, no hindrance to being who we really are, just as we came into the world.”

Having never tried yoga before I was a little daunted by signing up to a random group lesson in London, but Doria’s private lesson was everything I was looking for. Doria was super warm and welcoming, putting me at complete ease from the moment I arrived. We sat and discussed all about why I wanted to start yoga and what I was looking to gain from practicing. After the class, the feeling of calm, confidence and general well-being was overwhelming. I have already booked more sessions and can’t wait to get going again! Would highly recommend to anyone who is even slightly considering starting their journey! Thank you Doria! Bob x

I didn’t know the existence pf Naked Yoga until I watched Doria’s documentary at the East End Film Festival, “Bare with me”. This short film really opened my eyes to a new perception of the naked body and so I decided to book a class with her.

Doria is simply amazing! She’s calm, engaging and strong, a mix between Kylie Minogue and Calissi. I’m going trough a new phase in my life and I’m glad to do it with her and her teaching. Yoga is magical and if you practice naked, it become incredibly powerful.

Thanks Doria for your light.

After a winter of unfulfilled good intentions my body was starting to complain. Finally deciding to do something about it, I took the plunge and booked a lesson with Doria.

My pre-lesson nerves were quickly allayed. Doria is a very engaging teacher and soon puts you at ease. The lesson was challenging but rewarding. Doria is quick to encourage, but careful to ensure I didn’t push myself too far.

Hopefully this will be the first of many visits.

“My experience with the naked yoga class was simply unforgettable.
I thoroughly enjoyed it so much that I quickly booked the class the following week.

Why Naked Yoga?

Well never before have I felt so comfortable in my own skin.
Nobody judges, nobody stares, everyone is just 100% focused on what they are doing.
You actually completely forget you’re nude & it feels wonderful.
No wife nagging me to put my shirt back on & hide away my fat belly. 😉
The yoga class was so exhilarating, I felt completely invigorated afterwards.

I have suffered from chronic back pain for over 10 years, spending a fortune on Physio, Chiro & wasting my time with pain killers, but honestly, nothing ever felt as therapeutic before as this.
I felt simply fabulous afterwards & my mindset felt refreshed & ready for the week ahead.
Doria certainly knows how to animate a class & warm up a room with positive golden glow.
Thank you Doria for bringing some sunshine & energy back into my body mind & soul.
It’s great to have the feel good factor back again.”

I have no words to express my gratitude towards Doria and to her great knowledge of yoga. Doria’s class was like a magic tale and very powerful. A travel in time and space. Everybody worked in great harmony.

Thank you Doria. I will return from France.

As Doria says, “If you don’t try you don’t know”! And she’s so right. I’ve been overthinking about booking a naked yoga class for so long and now that I have finally experienced it I’m so grateful I did it. Naked Yoga it’s really powerful, it gives you the opportunity to embrace your imperfections and finally love them. We are unique and we are beautiful, full stop. Once again, if you don’t try you don’t know.

Thanks Doria for opening my eyes and for pushing me out of my comfort zone so badly, I will be eternally grateful.

Namaste.

I am so lucky to have found Doria’s class! She is an incredible and patient teacher, who has opened up a challenging world of yoga – exactly what I need. Doria has a magic about her teaching that makes me so comfortable and motivated in every class.

I can not say enough great things about Doria’s teachings! She is fantastic!

I really enjoyed Doria’s class. She is an excellent teacher and led the class beautifully.
I was apprehensive about attending, but Doria led the class so well that you kind of just forget about the naked thing.

The studio is a really nice space, with sensible numbers in the class. It’s one of the only yoga classes I have been to, where you aren’t all cramped in with 40 other students!

I highly recommend this class. You will feel amazing afterwards.

Doria has a profound knowledge of yoga, and is a genuine expert. She made me think about the classes I attended previously, which now appear superficial in comparison. She is able to make yoga deep, whilst at the same time keeping the session fun.

She has a fun and inspiring personality, and one certainly comes away feeling enriched by the experience.

From the first ‘hello’ Doria makes you feel welcome and at ease. My first session was challenging but extremely rewarding. I knew instantly that this was the place I was meant to be.

Having been several more weeks now, I can honestly say each one has been progressively more enjoyable, with better outcomes. Each time, I leave feeling more relaxed, more energised, more aligned (inside and out), more accomplished, more everything that is positive.

And it really is down to the amazing Doria! She always manages to put a smile on my face!

I began my journey into yoga simply wanting to be more flexible, but I have learned so much more and benefited in multiple ways.

Doria, for your part in this, thank you!

An excellent class in a nice, warm and friendly environment. Doria was welcoming and helped to make it a comfortable experience with a professional environment.

I will definitely attend again in the future.

Below are some words that only begin to describe Doria and her Yoga class that I attended this evening: creative, playful, grounding, enlightening, heartfelt, balanced, peaceful, joyful, challenging, welcoming.

Part of it is her presence, part her thoughtful approach to movement and alignment, part what she’s able to bring out in each of the people in the room.

I am eternally grateful for her contribution to my spiritual growth and enlightenment by accepting me into her class. At first I thought I would feel embarrassed, but after the first couple of minutes I relaxed and I believe it has opened my eyes to a new kind of yoga.

She breathes so much love and light into her teaching – it is impossible to leave without a euphoric spirit and a smile.

I had the immense pleasure of practising with Doria for the first time this week and it was a fabulous experience. She’s a wonderful, warm and inspiring teacher and deftly led the class of mixed-abilities, succinctly outlining the 3 options for each level. As for the naked part… you really need to experience it to appreciate how non-confronting it is. The room is dark, lit only by the orange glow from the heaters and the mats are arranged in a horse-shoe, so no one is behind or in front of you. Vinyasa Flow is an energetic style and you are so focused on your own practise and your own breath that the rest of the class melts away to peripheral consciousness. It honestly feels like the natural way to practise yoga to me and I’ll be taking Doria’s class as often as possible.

My yoga experience with Doria has been nothing short of wonderful. The setting is warm and welcoming. She gives us modifications if any poses are too difficult, and is very pleasant to be taught by. I have gone for two weeks straight and I look forward to attending many more sessions. Naked yoga is a great way to get in touch with our true selves, without hiding anything or expecting to be different than how we are…

Thank you so much Doria!

I can only say – go for it! – whether you are an experienced yogi(ni) like I am, or are new to this world.

A class with Doria will definitely take you to the next level and you will be in the safest of hands from beginning to end.

Thank you and … Namaste

Thanks for an incredible class! I booked a private lesson with Doria – when she arrived I felt immediately comfortable and more relaxed by simply being in her presence.

I have done yoga a few times before, this session with Doria felt like no other, it gave me a feeling I have never previously felt from yoga. a really healing experience for both my body and mind.

I can’t wait to book again!

I’m a complete beginner and I was quite scared of just thinking of trying yoga as I’m not flexible at all. I must admit, Doria is a very kind and beautiful soul, she guided me through this journey in a very special way, with patience and dedication. I have discovered that we don’t have to be flexible to practise yoga, we just need to enjoy the journey and trust the process. For anyone sceptical, please give it a try, Doria is an absolute pleasure to practice with you!!!!Thanks Andrea

I was interested in trying Naked Yoga for a long time when a friend recommended me Doria. I’ve been practising with her for about 6 months and I just love it! It is a completely liberating experience and I always leave feeling rejuvenated.

I’m one of the Doria’s Instagram and Facebook followers and I had the pleasure to meet her during one of her trips here in Bali. As Doria had only 3 days left in Bali we only had a couple of sessions. She is passionate, funny,and friendly. Her love for yoga really come through in her classes and her teaching style is clear, strong as motivating. I use to spend 6 months in Bali and 6 in London, so, I will definitely contact her again in September once back in UK. Thanks Doria, keep doing what you love.

Doria’s classes are quite simply my favourite. I practice yoga every week in London, at a variety of studios with a number of teachers as my schedule suits. However, I keep to Doria’s classes. They
are challenging, fun and varied. In particular, I love how great they are for toning and conditioning, and how she encourages you to push yourself to achieve beyond your expectations. I play football and my strength and endurance on the pitch has noticeably improved since I started Doria’s classes. Highly recommended! 🙂

I met Doria through FitnessOnFire in Westminster and I decided to book a One to One session with her. Doria has shown me what meditation can be through movement. Her classes are truly an amazing
experience and one that has become integral to my practice. I find myself being able to push myself in her classes through my body breath and mind and supersede my limitations. She has so much
knowledge to share and I am so thankful to be able to deepen my practice with her!
