About Darren

Many years ago I walked into my first yoga class. I didn’t know it at the time, but that simple decision would change the course of my life. Before I found yoga and meditation, my body ached, my mind was chaotic and my heart wounded. Today, life has its ups and downs and I stumble and fall often, but I’m able to return to my center more quickly thanks to my practice.

Because of yoga and meditation, I was able to come out and then to live well with HIV. Most importantly, yoga and meditation helped me to find the courage necessary to become a single father and then to remain present to my son through life’s many highs and lows.
