Douglas' love of human movement at an early age inspired him to pursue education and work in human evolutionary biology. After working in the field of anatomy research, Douglas felt compelled to explore alternative anatomy-centered philosophies in a systematic way, leading him to study under Dr. Lisa Mitchell at Dana Hot Yoga. Through his 200 Hour yoga teacher training at Dana Hot Yoga and with the support of the tAra Yoga community, Douglas has been awakened to the intricate and powerful connections between the body, breath, and mind that yoga creates. His understanding of human variation drives his belief that yoga practice should be highly personal with no concept of the "perfect pose". Driven by this belief, he works to create dynamic yet accessible classes for all those seeking strength and peace within their bodies.
