our story


We started as two people with one vision. Now we are a team of inspirational people who share love for wellbeing.

When we first met, we were fascinated by how different but at the same time similar our training programmes are. The names of yoga asanas or fitness exercises were so unique we could write an entire book just about that, but the poses themselves were often the same, just performed at different speed and sequence. At some point we were even working at the same studio, unaware that we are training the same people.

We quickly realised that what really connects us is our main goal: wellbeing. Incorporating yoga, weight training, fitness, cardio, meditation, breath work and bodywork allowed us to work with people in a completely different and very distinctive way.

We love to move and find time for our own personal practice! It sometimes looks wonky, as we get tired too. Sometimes it’s very rushed as we only have a few spare minutes. Sometimes we need to improvise and find trees, beaches and stones or construct our own weight system. But often, especially after a good workout, we feel just as mighty as the Hulk and we know that we just did something amazing for our body and mind. DP Wellbeing offers you an opportunity to feel strong, flexible and balanced. It's for the muscular, the weak, the fit and the not so fit. All you need is the will to find the time in your busy weekly schedule to work towards your own wellbeing.

xoxo Daria & Phil

If you can dream it, you can do it.

  Daria Wall   Yoga teacher, massage therapist  Daria is a professional world traveler, she runs a Travel and Retreat Company  Wandertreat  and she is away as much as at home. She travelled across the world to train with  Ana Forrest  and completed the Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training in Hong Kong. Her curiosity and fascination with anatomy and biomechanics of the human body sent her to Thailand where she begun her journey with  Tiffany Cruikshank , creator of  Yoga Medicine  with whom she has completed the 500 hour certification.  Students often say that her appetite for yoga and movement is infectious. Daria strongly believes in finding ease in the movement, feeling free, understanding how our body works and utilising this knowledge to apply yoga along with massage as medicine. Daily practice strengthened her own injured spine, and it was that injury that started Daria's fascination with the human body and its biomechanics.  Daria is trained in full body massage, myofascial release, Thai massage and Chinese medicine. She also completed the Professional Thai Massage 150 Hour training at the Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai, Thailand.   Daria is an animal avenger, veggie, Elephant and Rhino lover and an Open Water Diver. She also loves to surf... not is freezing Scotland though.
