#8 DOUG ROBSON - Hollywood Stuntman and Yoga Teacher, on balance teaching your truth and respecting your body
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.
