YIN Part 1, TEACHER TRAINING
"There is only one person to take this Yin Training with, and it is DAR; She is the best. "
Kerry Lynne, 200 hr yoga teacher, Madison, Wisconsin
"Dar's teacher training consistently sells out and are raved about! We are on our 5th year offering both Part 1 and Part 2 at Inner Fire Yoga. "
The next Yin 1 Training is JANUARY 17-19, 2020

This 20-hour Yin Yoga Training weekend is incredible. It is transformational both personally and professionally. Dar's program is based around lots of practice in a variety of formats. This allows you to physically “get” Yin Yoga. The physical practice is then underpinned with theoretical teachings, the history. the anatomy, etc.. This format prepared all participants to teach a Yin practice at the end of the weekend. Brilliant. I highly recommend Dar to you.

"Darlene presents a very professional and fun weekend giving students the tools to teach Yin Yoga accurately and safely. She does it all, and well! All of our students at all of our studios love her and she is welcome back anytime! "
John and Natalie Surie, owners of all FireShaper Studios
ALOHA ACTIVE, Noosa Heads, Australia
"Darlene came up to my studio after I took her training in Bundall at FireShaper and had 20 students trained in a few days. We were so happy and wanted more of her, so I had her return for PART 2, 6 months later! Darlene also trained my staff in a Fusion Class combining HOT (Bikram) Yoga and Power Flow! She is a wealth of knowledge and is welcome back anytime to Noosa."
Manya Langford, director and owner of Aloha Active.
Dar's Yin Training is digestible, practical, fun, and accommodating. Dar does a great job explaining the history, teaching the poses, and explaining the anatomy by lecture, practice and movies. Loved the aromas and all the fascia analogy! I was never bored! I recommend this course with Dar!

Here is what the Aussies tell about their interactions and trainings with Dar:
"Darlene Vander Hoop is an inspiring and multi-dimensional teacher; her wealth of experience and knowledge is magical. I felt transported to a different dimension while attending her Yin classes as well as the Yin Yoga Teacher Training. The Yin practice has been instrumental in helping me improve my postures in regular 'Yang' classes. Her love for sharing her perspective and experience was refreshing and I felt the shift not only in my yoga practice but in my mind as well. I will certainly look forward to her next visit in Australia. NAMASTE!"
Xen Angelides , personal trainer, fitness instructor
"I entered the Yin Yoga Teacher training and workshops and flow workshops under the recommendation of Dr John. Thank you John!! I am a Bikram yoga practitioner and certified Bikram teacher. I entered the workshops with no expectations. I had heard of Darlene's wonderful energy and charisma and wanted to share my time with her and some other wonderful yogis. That's what us yogis do!! Strait away when I meet the Jersey Gal I was greeted with open arms!!! Her energy and caring nature was in abundance. With each Asana, pranayama and meditation felt like a journey of her extensive experience that she was so willing to share. Her worldliness and life experiences bought a lift to my heart. Her stories of her life & Yoga journey made me realize that there is so much more to learn and so much more to give our students. I wish I had more time to spend with her wonderful soul. I look forward to seeing her soon on my return to the US. I will make you proud to be my teacher Ms. Darlene; that I promise you."
Darren S Brown
"Not only have I had the pleasure and fortune of doing Darlene’s Flow Mastery training but I have also been regularly attending her weekly classes here at Fireshaper. The experience and knowledge I have gained from my time with Darlene has not only opened my personal practice but attuned my teaching abilities. Her grace and knowledge has been exponential in moving my consciousness and for this I am eternally grateful."

Kim Keane - Yoga Instructor
"Life changing experience; my yoga will never be same. Dar’s connection to me as a student, helping me go inwards, feel grounded and enlightening my practice. The experience, knowledge, humor and light that she brings to not only the class but life in general is extraordinary. I was gifted the opportunity to have Dar connect with me and my family outside the yoga room which allowed me to get to know Dar not only as teacher but as a friend, an experience that I am eternally grateful for. To get to experience Darlene’s classes was an extremely rewarding experience that impacted my life inside and outside the yoga room. Thank you Dar can’t wait to see you back here again SOON!"
Justin Quilligan, Brittany and Jack
"It gives me great pleasure to firstly say Darlene is a woman of substance! I have thoroughly enjoyed her classes and workshops this past month at Fire shaper Studio. The insights have been terrific especially learning about Yin and the importance of balance from doing Yang. Also learnt a lot about Chakra healing and aroma therapy. Also loved your cool Forge classes! Darlene is witty, Funny and full of Zest and life! You have been a breath of fresh air this past month for me personally and know other students were very inspired as well. You will be very missed and hope you will come back next year. On a personal both Elynn and I had the pleasure of knowing you personally and have brought some much joy, wisdom and Spirit to both of us! Take good care our beloved friend and keep teaching your magical wisdom."
Thank you and NAMASTE!
Elynn Angelides - Fire Shaper Instructor
"Thank you for the Yin workshop. While I have done Yin before, this was a new experience. It was deeper, more intense and more rewarding. When coming out of the positions, the feeling of release was so sweet, (sukha) that I feel I will be forever addicted to this practice. After the session, I noticed that the Yin workshop allowed me to manage stressful situations with a new level of calm and a greater ability to stay in the present. Applying the Yin allowed me to be more mindful. This ability is invaluable. Thank you for your inclusive, insightful and individual approach which created a truly immersive experience. You took Yin to a whole Level.!! I really appreciated all of your effort and time and hope to see you again in Australia. Teaching Yin next Thursday and I can’t wait to start imparting this knowledge to others as well as enjoying the benefits in my own life.
Eunice Arden-Wood – Fire Shaper Instructor
"Through the power of her yin training Darlene re connected me too the inner soul of my practice, her wealth of knowledge is undeniable Darlene was able to remind me of that deep healing place we come to within our yoga - the true meaning of why we practice.
Darlene's method of teaching is practical and kind she imparts so much information without leaving you feeling overwhelmed or out if your depth. This experience was divine."
Natasha Hayward – Senior Fire Shaper Instructor
