A Veteran Teacher Of Yoga and a Movement Artist ...
Dar is a seasoned yoga instructor with 45 years of teaching classes, workshops, and leading teacher training in a variety of yoga styles. Her background is in Movement Therapy/kinisiology, B.S. Degree from University of Wisconsin, Madison (with honors.) Dar also holds a CERTIFIED Bikram Teacher Credential, a 200-hour certification in Hot Vinyasa, a 50-hour YIN credential from Bernie Clark, and 45 hrs with mindfulness expert, Jon Kabatt-Zinn.
Dar has logged in over 22,000 teaching hours, spanning the globe. Her signature class was "Bikram's Beginning Yoga Class" which she taught at dozens of studios from 1980-present. She is in the registry of national Yin Teachers and has created multiple levels of Yin Immersions. A fun, juicy Vinyasa Flow from the heart and breath, is also essential to her package of offerings. Dar trains teachers in Yin Yoga, and Vinyasa Flow all over the USA, all the way to the Gold Coast of Australia, and to the Islands of Fiji. Her masterful Yin Yoga was a featured workshop at Bhakti Fest!
Aroma Yin, and Chakra Aroma Yoga are other signature workshops, as well as leading retreats. Years studying aromatherapy, and being one of the first to employ aroma into yoga sessions, Dar infuses into her YIN WORKSHOPS the sweetness of nature using her small batch therapeutic grade mists and oils. These 2-3 hour long, famous, Aroma Yin Immersions are often referred to as a "Bliss Out!"
YIN 1 (18 hrs) is offered many times a year. Trainings are open to other professionals, and anyone interested in the Yin side of Yoga practice. Yoga teachers receive 18 CE credits for this training. More about upcoming yin trainings is on the "Workshop and Training" page.
