Known for the intuitive individualized attention she offers students as well as a delightful sense of humor in class, Caryn creates a deeply personal opportunity for self-study within a nurturing community atmosphere. She arrived at her present state of overflowing love after journeying through a series of complex health issues whose combined effects are causing her to lose vision in both eyes. At the time of her diagnosis, she was inwardly called by her guru, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, to attend her first yoga teacher training. This initiation helped her perceive her health issues as signs of deep inner-transformation. Caryn has courageously taken her “sickness” as an opportunity to practice utter acceptance of life. This acceptance has not only led her to experience a new realm of peace and joy but has opened new doors to deep healing she can share with others. Her transformational experiences imbued her with an intensified vision of inner bliss and unwavering devotion that is now transmitted to her students who feel a sense of great healing during her classes. In order to honor and adapt to her changing body, Caryn has shifted her practice to the Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga (CSV) method, created by Sadie Nardini, whose emphasis on connection to core muscles and more fluid transitions into postures creates a safer practice “while causing a more efficient total body/mind transformation.” CSV has revolutionized Caryn's life, rebuilding her strength, personal power, and physical freedom beyond illness. She is devoted to spreading the revolution! With Caryn, students receive more benefits in less time than other types of yoga because her methods combine the newest bio-mechanical research with her intuitive healing methods to most efficiently access the deepest part of themselves. Students can then journey powerfully and safely into their most authentic practice and become closer to their true nature, transforming on many levels. Her classes provide a challenging, intense, nurturing, profound, centering, and fun complete experience. When Yogis come to Caryn's revolutionary classes, they always leave their mats smiling and inspired. Caryn is completing her 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teaching Certification with world wide teacher Sadie Nardini who says Caryn is “HeartCore!”

Darren is a yoga trained spiritual teacher who began his path at a young age in the Catholic tradition, his first 20 years being filled with countless rosaries, retreats, and pilgrimages.His spirituality started to evolve as he was forced to release belief of Christian rhetoric in order to accept his homosexuality as beautiful and natural. Breaking from his Catholic background ignited a fire in him to relentlessly study and practice ancient and modern spiritual teachings and healing modalities which have now become the foundation of his practice and teachings. He began his yoga journey in 2003. His life changed in 2010, when he decided to take control of his life and pursue total happiness. He quit his full-time high school teaching job and travelled to the banks of the Ganges River in India where he earned his yoga teaching certification. His experience in India and his following 2 month meditation trip around Thailand solidified his path as a spiritual teacher and yoga advocate. Darren uses a toolset accumulated from old and new, Eastern and Western to continually fall in love with life and celebrate its innumerable joys even amid its traumatic obstacles. His spiritual journey has also uncovered his intuitive abilities which he employs to translate often ambiguous spiritual teachings into a very personalized step by step plan for students to find their individual paths to wholeness. He received his formal Western training in music conservatories and holds his Masters in Music and is constantly seeking new ways to incorporate the transcendental properties of music into his classes and community outreach. Before focusing on spiritual teaching, Darren worked as a high school teacher working with at-risk students in Chicago, developing for them music, dance, and yoga programs. He gained a heightened awareness of the body and mind’s resilience running the 2010 Chicago Marathon and hiking the New Jersey portion of the Appalachian Trail. Darren continues to travel the world, connecting, teaching, performing, and spreading love. He released his first solo piano album, "Ascending into Light," in 2014 and it is available at your favorite online music store.
