Darlene has been studying and practicing yoga for more than 25 years. The foundation of her training began as a resident at Kripalu Center in Lenox, Mass. and continued to her being in residence at a Sumneytown, Pennsylvania yoga ashram. It was during her very first yoga class at a local high school that she had an awareness of coming home to herself. This is the moment she realized that she had found her niche. Throughout the years she has studied with teachers of various styles of Hatha yoga including: Kripalu, TriYoga, Bikram, Svaroopa, Iyengar, Yin, and Vinyasa. And for the last 15 years Darlene has closely studied Self Inquiry Meditation (Jnana yoga) with Dr. Bhagwan Awatramani. During this time she has traveled to various countries to nourish this practice in silent meditation seminars led by Dr. Awatramani. Darlene brings a meditative awareness into her classes which comes from her love and understanding of the depths of yoga.
