As a health consultant, Darin always seeks to see the whole picture of health before recommending any therapy course, but draws on the principles of daily routine and diet found in Ayurveda.  He also employs the use of simple yoga techniques such as poses (asana) and/or breathwork that can be highly targeted for specific health conditions.  


Darin has been teaching meditation and yoga for two decades in Washington D.C.  He is a certified yoga therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT), and is an advisor on the board of Taksha University’s Institue of Yoga Therapy and Meditation (IYTM).  He is also a faculty member for Vedic Health, Inc., based out of Rockville, MD.

As a yoga teacher, Darin was blessed in 2010 by HH Amma Sri Karunamayi to teach a unique and profound yoga asana practice suitable for all levels, and has taught this sequence in seminars around the country.  He is the author of Yoga is Union, a guide to viewing the full landscape of Yoga for the Western practitioner which has sold over ten thousand copies worldwide.  Darin also frequently guest teaches for advanced yoga trainings in the area, and seeks to make each class an offering of spirit  allowing for a safe and intimate encounter with one’s own highest self.
