Through our own will, we liberate ourselves from set patterns and start to create new behavior.

Moving from Riga, Latvia to Seattle wasn’t just a cultural change for Datza, it was the beginning of a lifelong journey of self-discovery. Coming from a background in both dance and fitness, Datza found herself immediately captivated by and drawn towards the practice of yoga. Making choices for one’s own body that came not from the head but from the heart was something she found to be deeply profound and intensely satisfying, and so fifteen years ago she began her journey as a yoga practitioner. Under the tutelage of renowned yogis Kathleen Hunt and Steve Davis, Datza graduated from Samadhi with an RYT 200 certification in her hand and a burning desire to teach others in her heart.


Most recently, Datza taught both barre3 and was the lead instructor for 200 RYT teacher training at Live Love Flow studio in Seattle, Wa. She has since taken her fifteen years of dutiful yoga practice, paired it with her lifelong adoration for dance, and cultivated a space here in Seattle for her students to grow, flow and vibe as one. She believes that yoga, at its very core, isn’t just about the fundamentals of the exercise itself, but about taking all of the nuanced principles one learns in class and applying them to one’s everyday life.
