About The Teacher

Hi! I’m Danya Buac. I’m a Canadian turned international yoga teacher living in the heart of the west coast of Canada. My yoga journey started back when I was in high school and has led my path for the last decade. From a deep interest in mind-body connections and spirituality I took my first yoga teacher training in the fall of 2013 in Canada. I then deepened this connection and established a sincere understanding of yoga philosophy by attending two more yoga teacher trainings in India in the winter of 2018. Since then, it has been an intense romance story between my mat and I which has caused me to become fully immersed in my own practice.

My classes are a dynamic creative flow focusing on alignment while incorporating breathwork and core strengthening. I also lead meditative sessions involving various methods like sound healing and forest bathing. I integrate holistic therapeutic tools to promote self-healing as well as a deeper connection with ourselves and the world around us.

I draw my inspiration from my daily visit to my mat and my own wonderful teachers. As a 500-RYT with Yoga Alliance, I try to bring my experience from my own sustained practice as well as the invaluable knowledge I have been taught along the way. I dedicate my own teachings to paying homage to the traditional hatha yoga lineage and the deeply rich wisdom while incorporating a modern twist.

I believe yoga to be a path of medicine for it heals in a way that most prescribed medicine cannot. It allows the practitioner to work on a much deeper level of healing by using body, mind, and soul to establish awareness and focus while relieving stress and tension. I teach in a way of guiding beings to finding this release and helping to change the recipe when necessary so that it may be suitable for all. With this path, I hope to inspire others with a way of letting go what no longer serves them so that they may step into their center of being and experience their own inherent potential.
