I graduated in 1979 from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy. This was only the beginning of my lifelong love affair with physiotherapy and learning. I have been privileged to work with and treat many people over the years that have challenged me and caused me to grow in ways I would never have dreamed of 35 years ago. I have developed an interest in the complexities of treating chronic pain, children, Women’s Health issues and animal rehab. These areas of interest have led me to take many additional areas of training such as acupuncture, chronic pain and pelvic pain courses, body awareness courses, and to become certified in animal rehab among many other courses. I teach Canine and Equine Rehabilitation and it has become an exciting part of my career.
I love being a physical therapist and working with people and animals to help them met their goals to the best of our collective ability. I look forward to working with you to help you met your goals.

Daria started practicing yoga in her late twenties and throughout her life always being a competitive athlete in horseback riding and training horses, yoga was not something that came really easy to her. It was and sometimes still is a struggle to overcome the powerful ego inside and surrender, surrender to the beauty of the yoga practice and the stillness of the mind through meditation.
In her early 30s, Daria started teaching yoga in Austria, her home country. In 2014 she made a life-changing decision to marry her soul mate and move with her horse to Canada – this is when she became fully devoted to teaching yoga and practicing JSJ-acupressure at her home practice at Wizard Lake. Ashtanga yoga and yin yoga practice are the two styles that make Daria complete and feeling at home wherever she might be: teaching retreats or workshops in Europe or across Canada.
