Darla’s yoga practice began in her university days back in the mid 1990s. Her love for yoga grew deeper each year and in 2014 she completed a 200 hr teacher training at Therapeutic Yoga Studio, Halifax and in 2015/16 she completed a 150hr Advanced Teacher Training with Hart Lazer of United Yoga, Montreal.
She has completed hundreds of hours of yoga training over the past 30 years, a 120-hr Pilates Mat Certification and recently has completed her Level I Iyengar Yoga certification which was by far the most in-depth level of study she has completed thus far. Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers are extremely well trained. Teacher training is rigorous and spans a three to five-year period in which teachers follow a program based on an international syllabus and standards set by B.K.S. Iyengar.
As a dedicated yoga student and teacher, with a true desire to learn how movement of the body can help create space in our bodies and minds, you will find Darla’s classes can help you explore your own body and mind.
Darla’s curiosity about the mobility and stability of the body inspires her to offer diverse yoga classes and yoga workshops on ways we can cultivate these qualities in both the body and mind. She is an innovative and creative teacher using props extensively to help her students connect with their bodies and minds to bring a sense of stillness and peace within.
