Darren ~ Instructor Qualifications

I took up Bikram Yoga in 1999 and am a qualified instructor via Bikram’s Yoga College of India (2005) this Teacher Training is a 9 week residential course with a minimum of 600+ hours for completion.  I am a qualified Yoga Therapist having attended and completed the necessary one to one prescription writing and asana training at Ghosh’s College of Yoga and Physical Education in Kolkata, India (2018).  I am trained to teach Hot Yoga classes at an intermediate level (2016).  Further, I have completed the ‘Inferno Hot Pilates’ teacher training. I am a qualified masseus and also qualified in Indian Head Massage technique. Over the years I have undertaken continuous, additional trainings and workshops with, amongst others, Christian Scaraglino, Craig Villani, Muktamala Mitri and Gabriella Walters. Aside from formal training I have also privately practiced and studied other schools of Yoga and Meditation. I have been building my knowledge and skills since starting my Yoga journey in 1999 and will continue to attend workshops and courses in my commitment to broadening knowledge and skills in order to best serve practitioners on their Yoga journey. Having come from a background of having personal conditions and injury prior to taking up Yoga myself, I am particularly interested in the healing benefits of a regular Yoga practice.  I know that a stripped back posture can be very therapeutic and that most people can achieve and benefit from the most simple form of asana.  Having a back to basics approach, finding stillness in best effort and keeping Yoga as true to the original teachings will preserve the therapeutic and healing and I want to share this with others 🙂
