Darcy loves teaching family yoga and children, adolescents, and adults of varying abilities and yoga experience, including pregnant women. Her classes and private instruction promote strength, flexibility, consciousness, and a sense of inner calm. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) at the 500 hour level and a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT). She has been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) since 2001 and a mom since 2004. When she’s not teaching yoga, you may find her taking a yoga workshop, or playing games, hiking, or traveling with her family.
I have been a certified Kids Yoga Teacher with Grounded Kids Yoga since December 2016. I started teaching kids yoga since July 2016. I have taught at local libraries and businesses in the local Charlotte, NC area. I am fluently bi-lingual in English and Spanish. I enjoy sprinkling Spanish words with poses as a fun way for children to learn a new language. I recently moved to the Santa Monica area in sunny California. I am excited to grow and learn with the community here and to be able to continue my teaching here.
