Darcy is an explorer of life, and yoga has proven to be her ultimate exploration into mind, body and soul. She has always been attracted to physical challenges, but only on the yoga path has she discovered how much a clear mind and an ethical, orderly life amplify and support physical power.
Darcy completed her first vinyasa yoga certification with Karen Conley of Amazing Yoga in 2004, and taught at AY for 5 years. During this time her teaching and practice was nourished by teachers including Baron Baptiste, Gregor Singleton, and Bryan Kest.
The next big revolution in Darcy’s yoga was ignited by Jivamukti teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life. She attended their “Taste of Teacher Training” program at Omega institute in the fall of 2010, where she finally embraced the power of a sitting meditation practice.
In 2011 Darcy discovered Kula Yoga in NYC and immediately felt that Schuyler Grant was her next important teacher. So, in the fall of 2012 she attended Schuyler’s advanced teacher training which was jam packed with anatomy study and the art of creative sequencing.
More recently Darcy has been inspired to push new boundaries in the practice of slackline yoga and acro yoga. She met the YogaSlackers at Wanderlust, VT, and was instantly hooked, bought a slackline immediately and started practicing diligently. She completed the YogaSlacker teacher training in 2013. In January of 2018 Darcy and her partner Casey west traveled to New Zealand for further training as acrobats and coaches, completing the "Acro Mastermind" teacher training program with Jason and Chelsey Magness.
Darcy's teaching style is athletic and strong, but also focuses on patience, precision, meditation and slow cleansing breaths. Darcy is most excited about the power of a clear, awake mind, and living a purposeful life both on and off the mat!
