Meet Our Founder

Datza Tamane

Datza is the creator and visionary for Datza Yoga Studio, which has been based in Eastlake, Seattle since 2018.

For Datza, yoga is a lifelong journey of understanding and appreciating your beautiful body.

Heralding from Riga, Latvia where from an early age traditional music, dance and sports was a part of everyday life, Datza discovered the joy of using her body to create movement and expression. Datza became captivated with yoga as she felt true self-reflection, personal development and empowerment can be possible through grounded and inclusive practice.

To understand the principles of yoga, Datza has completed a number of well-renowned local and international trainings with highly thought of and recognised Yogis such as Kathleen Hunt and Steve Davis. These trainings include:

200 RYT w/ Samadhi

300 RYT w/ Aligned Yoga

Living Yoga Course w/ Ellen Rose

Mentoring Course w/ Raphan Kebe

Anatomy of Emotions w/ Janet Stone

Essential Mentorship w/ Elena Brower

Imbedding her lifelong adoration for dance, Datza has taught at music festivals across Europe and the USA as well as teaching mindfulness and yoga to children.

Now after more than fifteen years of practicing as both a student and teacher, Datza seeks to inspire and challenge herself and others through practices which suit a variety of different styles and levels.

Datza strives for all her students to honor their space, the time they carve out for their practice as in the busy, modern world that we live in, which is why Datza yoga Studio and classes are a calming, reflecting place for all.

Coming together in Seattle, Datza has created a place where we can all grow, flow and vibe as one. She believes that yoga, at its very core, isnt just about the fundamentals of the exercise itself, but about taking all of the nuanced principles one learns in class and applying them to ones everyday life.
