TEACHER TRAINING FACULTY:
Datza Uldrike — Lead Trainer
Datza was introduced to yoga more than 13 years ago when she moved to Seattle from Riga, Latvia. With her background in dance and fitness, she developed a natural love for the asana practice and it grew into desire to teach. Datza is 200RYT graduate from Samadhi teacher training lead by Kathleen Hunt and Steve Davis and her lovely mentor Jennifer Isaacson. In her classes, Datza strives to blend her love of music and movement with playful, yet challenging and creative sequencing. She motivates her students to work to their potential and discover new possibilities of strength, flexibility, and balance while doing it with “it feels good” attitude and using modifications as needed. She encourages students to find inner connections of body, mind, and soul and to take it what they learn on the yoga mat and apply it to all areas of life. Datza teaches vinyasa yoga and cycle + flow classes. In her cycle classes do expect to sweat out all the nonsense what you are no more in need, by working at your edge and listening to the best beats this world has to offer. “If you want something in your life you never had, you’ll have to do something, you’ve never done.” JD Houston.
Indira Avdić, E- RYT 200 – Business of Yoga
Indira is a yogi who is passionate about life, people, and yoga. She first discovered yoga in 2009, as a way to heal a back injury she got in a car accident. By experiencing the physical and the mental benefits of the yoga practice, Indira knew from the very beginning that yoga would become an important part of her life. In 2011, Indira completed her 200-hour teacher training, knowing that this was what she wanted to do – share the benefits of yoga and help people in their healing journeys. Having extensive experience in the corporate world, Indira felt confident combining her business skills and passion for yoga to build a successful yoga studio where people could feel safe and welcomed. Today, a proud owner of Live Love Flow Yoga Studio, Indira works with a diverse group of talented teachers. Off the mat, Indira enjoys spending time with her family and traveling, especially to Europe, where she grew up. She often brings her worldliness into the classroom in addition to her spirituality and yoga philosophy.
