Darci's style is a harmonious blend of Vinyasa & Yin with a strong emphasis on anatomical alignment. This teacher training will focus on the Hatha Style of Yoga which pairs the heating elements of the sun (vinyasa) and the cooling effects of the moon (yin) into one unique style that she calls Harmony Flow. Prepare for a blissful experience. In addition to being a studio owner and full time teacher, Darci is a wife, mother of two boys and lover of life!
