Darshana has practiced yoga since 1990 when she happened upon a yoga class in Vancouver, BC and found breath as the connection between body and mind.
In 1994, Darshana’s path veered toward Aikido, a Japanese martial art, where she trained spiritedly and taught adults and children earning her 3rd dan (black belt) in 2011.
Formalizing her yoga training with Yoga by the Sea and the Amrit Yoga Institute in 2018, Darshana is exploring the ancient yogic teachings and the interconnectedness of mind-body-spirit and applying them to the modern lifestyle. Weekly hatha flow classes integrate meditative awareness and energetic flow into the joy of daily practice.
Darshana is a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance RYT500, I AM Yoga Nidra™ certified facilitator, meditation teacher, certified professional coach (ACC), writer, speaker, and award-winning entrepreneur. She facilitates personal development retreats and workshops for conscious leaders and entrepreneurs.
