2021: Radical Self-Care for Transformation

.... It's time to transition from Covid into an extraordinary world of possibilities.

Tantra invites us to remember that we are an embodiment of the Divine, that sacredness exists in all things, and self care is the most intimate of rituals to celebrate this Divine, accepting and honoring everything as a sparkle of sacredness without discriminating nor excluding any emotion, sensation, thought or desire. Transformation cannot happen without a deep understanding and caring for who we are.

This weekend is fully experiential and celebrates the sensorial exploration, introducing you to a set of foundational tools to practice bodymind self-care in embodied sacredness.

Direct Experience being the road map to true knowing, let's feel, breathe and move together to create a self-care help kit for your well-being.

This weekend immersion will give you a flavorful snapshot and entry way into our 9-month program Manifest Your Inner Teacher, as well as a stand alone toolkit to take home and adopt as yours:)

What you get:
- A sense of shared sacredness and connection with opening and closing circles
- Introduction to tantric yoga philosophy for daily living
- 7-minute daily yoga practice to start or end your day as an embodied spirit
- Breathing technique for balancing, centering and recalibration of body-mind-soul
- Your Ayurvedic elemental constitution assessment
- Tantric Yoga Nidra, a relaxation technique for a full recharge and reset, as well as to tap into creative intuition
- Morning rituals to kickstart the day and support digestion
- The 'Spit-Sit' mind-decluttering tool to download, let go, and start the day with clarity

...and more!

About this Presenter: 

Douchka Lecot

Douchka Lecot has been experiencing and teaching Tantra along with meditation, yoga and Ayurveda for the past 17 years in the Dallas-Fort Worth Community. Her teachings have been inspired by the work of Daniel Odier, Psalm Isadora, Christopher Wallis and the Indian Mystic Osho. Her passion and curiosity for life brings authenticity and inspiring joy to her sharing. She is the visionary founder of Yana Shala, a school and community providing a dynamic platform of ever-evolving tools and modalities catered to the individual life journey. Yana Shala is offering yearly a 9-month program certified with Yoga Alliance. This educational and experiential training provides transformational tools for life with a focus on self-exploration, self-care, yoga, meditation, Ayurveda and tantric methods. 

Having grown up on the Spanish Island of Ibiza shaped Douchka as a free spirit and gave her a different perspective on life and how to relate with it. Carrying this natural approach to existence in her essence, gives her teachings a down-to earth feel. Participants thus find it easy to play with and apply her tools – integrating a new flavor and a free spirit to their own lives.

Barb Totzke

With an upbringing that could not be more of a ‘180’ from her Yana Shala partner-in-crime Douchka Lecot, Barb Totzke was raised in the Texas Bible Belt. From earning her master’s degree in kinesiology and living the crazed hectic life of a senior athletic director at Southern Methodist University, Barb finally crossed the path of yoga at the sweet age of 40 and her yoga journey has been a deep delicious dive ever since. Practicing since 2001 and teaching an ever-evolving vinyasa/hatha mix since 2003, her teaching style reflects a complimentary mix of yin & yang - with her signature ‘Soulful Sloga’ always reinforcing a balance of strength & softness, power & surrender, challenge & acceptance. Opening Tsada Yoga studio in Dallas (2003-2014), Barb helped create a home to an incredibly unique and special community and many high vibrational offerings.

Now co-leading Yana Shala’s ‘Manifest Your Inner Teacher’ program with Douchka, she delights in getting to dabble in, play with and share all things yogic and radical self-care related - with a touch of tantra for extra juiciness.
