About your facilitators:
Douchka Lecot, Tantric Mermaid
Douchka Lecot has dedicated two decades to the profound practices and teachings of Tantra, meditation, yoga, and Ayurveda within the vibrant Dallas-Fort Worth Community. Her journey of exploration and instruction has been enriched by the wisdom of influential figures such as Christopher Wallis, Daniel Odier, Psalm Isadora, Osho, and Alexander Siebenstern. Yet, her ultimate guru has always been the boundless Mediterranean Sea, with her ever-flowing nature mirroring the fluidity and adaptability she imparts.
She has a unique ability to guide individuals through somatic experiences that tap into the wisdom of the body and the befriending of the mind, fostering a sense of connection, inner peace, and self-awareness. Whether on solid ground or in the soothing embrace of water, she holds a space for others to freely explore, feel and self empower on their transformative journey towards recognizing who they are, and truly living with deeper acceptance and self love.
With an unwavering zeal for life and an insatiable curiosity, Douchka infuses her teachings with a rare authenticity that radiates joy and inspiration. Her upbringing on the enchanting Spanish Island of Ibiza nurtured her into a free spirit, offering a unique lens through which she perceives life and its intricate dance. This inherent, down-to-earth perspective effortlessly permeates her teachings, making her tools accessible and easily applicable to her participants, granting them a new flavor and the freedom to express themselves.
Douchka and Barb Totzke co-own Yana Shala, a holistic school and community that serves as a dynamic educational platform offering an array of ever-evolving tools and modalities. At an individual level, she offers her one-on-one services tailored to each individual's personal life journey through Inner Designs. She also stands as a co-founder of IBloom where she brings and facilitates different approaches to experiential embodiment within the cultivation of Awareness, as non-retreats, intensive immersions and other offerings.
From earning her MS 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 combo since 2003, her teaching style reflects a complimentary mix of yin and yang - with her signature ‘Soulful Sloga’ always reinforcing a balance of strength and softness, power and surrender, challenge and 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 Lecot, she delights in getting to dabble in, play with and share all things yogic and radical self-care related.
Barb is certified in Relax & Renew Yoga as offered by relaxation pioneer Judith Hanson Lasater - a true master in the art and skill and therapeutic aspects of teaching restorative yoga.
Lastly Barb also discovered that even though she was born and raised in landlocked Dallas, Texas, she is truly a Piscean water goddess at heart and as such is also certified to share Aguahara experiences with others. Aguahara is a holistic offering of guided movement in water that promotes physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
