Darien is Brilliant!
I love and appreciate Darien‘s phenomenal gift in knowing how to apply classical Pilates techniques to my personal physical issues. She is an intuit and can feel what a person needs and if that person is like me, they’ve grown up unaware of their body and how it all connects together. I have Scoliosis, and I’ve had back pain since I was 13. I am now 62 and I can say for the first time in my life I’m waking up with no back pain. I need to be clear though. I have back pain unless I do my exercises. It can’t be just a once a week lesson with Darien. I’ve got to take what I learn from her and apply it in my life. And when I do that, I am much happier. Darien has helped me learn how important it is to keep my spine healthy so that it can keep me supported as I age. I take care of it, and it takes care of me! Thank you Darien!
Darien is a Healer
I will never forget the relief I felt in my lower back after taking my first mat class with Darien about 2 years ago. I had recently found out I had a compression in my lower spine and had to stop all exercise. I thought I would try Darien’s class and was so surprised at how amazing my back felt during class and afterwards. My spine felt instantly supported. Darien truly has the gift of being able to read one’s body and pinpoint its areas of weakness and strength. I truly appreciate her passion to teach her students how to heal and strengthen their bodies in her classes and anywhere they travel through the use of her apps. Thank you Darien. You truly are a gift and a healer.
What a gift!!!
Until I met Darien, I was quite impressed with my yogi self thinking that I had mastered pilates as well....Ha! I had no idea what the correct form and practice of an art form truly looked like until she had walked into my life...We are so lucky in Sonoma county to have her in our midst!.. Not only is Darien the closest teach to Joseph Pilates that we will see, she has an amazing spirit, wit and intellegence for what each student needs...she tailors this app as well as her great practice sessions to embrace the full art and beauty of Pilates. Thank you Darien for your grace, compassion and talents...With this app, I can take you everywhere I go...
