Meet Our Team
Our teachers have been trained with Yoga Kids International or equivalent accredited children’s yoga training organisation in the UK.
Certified Yogakids Teacher
Darsak’s inspiration to teach yoga to children was discovered by accident, as he saw his then 18 month old son, Aaron (now 12 years old!!) copying the postures and making animal noises as he held private classes at home with family and friends.
The inspiration for Yoga Dynamix began in a spiritual town, called Rishikesh, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, India whilst attending an International Yoga Festival in March 2008.
Darsak and a friend he met on a trip, Fal Jobanputra, had the same vision to teach children yoga from their own personal experiences prior to the trip and after seeing the children at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram living a simple yet a happy fulfilling life with strong emphasis on yoga as a foundation gave birth to Yoga Dynamix. Darsak has continued to grow Yoga Dynamix to what it is today.
Following this, he went onto commencing the training with Yoga Kids International in 2008 and graduated as a Certified Yoga Kids Teacher (CYKT) in 2009. His classes are non-judgmental, non-competitive and playful. He works on connecting the body, spirit, and mind, bringing a sense of stillness and appreciation, incorporating his love of nature into the practice with guided meditations and symbolically through the poses, challenging students to explore themselves with an open heart, open mind and most importantly, with compassion.
The classes at Yoga Dynamix have evolved and significantly expanded over the last 9 years and we are blessed to have a lovely team of teachers like-minded and passionate to make a difference to both children and adults through their own unique journeys and life experiences.
Adult & Children’s Yoga Teacher
When I first began my yoga journey, it was a physical means of staying fit and flexible, but over the years, blessed to be guided by inspiring teachers, my experience, and understanding of it has changed to realise it is so much more than just asanas. Through posture work, breathing, meditation, and mindfulness, Yoga has helped to improve my overall health, wellbeing, and peace of mind, and has become an integral part of my life.
In giving me the tools, it has become my anchor and has helped me face situations and challenges with a calmness that would have been inaccessible to me before. With this in mind, and as a parent of two teenagers, I feel it is so important for Yoga to be part of everyone’s life. I am passionate about sharing what I have learnt, especially with the pressures children and young people face in today’s frantic world.
With encouragement from Yogadynamix to start teaching Yoga I completed training with Yogabeez in 2017. It has been a joy to be part of the team in bringing the magic of Yoga into to children & teenagers lives in a fun and accessible way, and in turn, I am always learning from them, and reconnecting with my inner child!
Yoga is about being a positive force in your life.
Think about what yoga can do for you. Then find your passion, spread kindness and laughter, and most of all breathe. Only then will our soul start to dance…
