A native of Botswana and now London-based, Doug Robson (@thedownwarddoug) qualified as a stuntman 7 years ago after training extensively in martial arts, gymnastics and platform diving.

Since then he has doubled high-profile actors such as Channing Tatum, Colin Firth and Luke Evans and built an extensive list of credits, including award-winning productions Mission Impossible, The Avengers, Star Wars and Game of Thrones, among others.

Doug first took up yoga as a form of therapy after suffering a back injury. He has since developed a dedicated practice and in 2017 trained as a yoga instructor and began teaching. Mixing martial arts and yoga he has come up with a yoga flow that is as unique as his background.


Life as a stunt man /// Being Bear Grylls’ nannie /// Developing respect for your body /// Competing in the yoga studio /// Teaching from your truth and experience /// Finding the balance between confidence and knowledge as a teacher /// Building charisma /// The importance of getting things wrong /// Starting small and keep taking the next best step /// Teaching a ‘bad’ class
