About Me

Yana Shala offers a wholistic and holistic, ‘outside the box’, adaptative approach in the form of on-going educational programs that meet each individual where they are, and provide them with tools and space to learn, practice, experience, and grow. Initially inspired by Douchka Lecot's vision, Yana Shala is constantly evolving, enriched by our different teachers and their passions and offerings that constitute our faculty and community. Based on practical and universal principles that reconnect us to our natural cycles with self-awareness and experiential knowledge, our Toolbox for Life is made of a constantly evolving variety of disciplines, tools and value systems. Yana Shala offers advanced yoga studies, wellness workshops, master classes, retreats, yogacations and more to help seeking students define and build a balanced and empowering healthy lifestyle that supports their current life situation and purpose.

Great excursions and hiking!! Great markets!!
This was most simply, a fabulous trip. I thought it would be mostly yoga but instead it was the best yoga as well as many many cool and exciting adventures. It was fabulous because Barb and Dou and Taylor had you experience all as locals, not tourists. Wonderful.
