Dari Love Sylvia
Dari Love Sylvia teaches energizing and playful Vinyasa Flow classes in Oakland and the greater East Bay. Every student in the room, from complete beginner to more advanced practitioner, can find a challenge in Dari's class. Individual needs are recognized and honored, with special emphasis on detoxification, strength, self-knowledge, prayer, and intention setting. "We can all achieve freedom and power through honoring our own inner-guru. Intuition is a skill, not a gift, and yoga is the path to connect with that source of truth, joy, and inspiration." Dari has trained with Alice Joanou, Dharma Mittra, Stephanie Snyder, Shiva Rae, and Jane Austin. Her teaching style has also been profoundly influenced by the work and insights of Ana Forrest, Tias Little, and Seane Corn. Adjustments and guidance are aided by her past experience as both a massage therapist and holistic health counselor. Pregnant women are encouraged to attend all classes (with the exception of Detox Flow), as Dari has taught both prenatal and postnatal classes and practiced herself through two pregnancies. Her children are her most challenging, beloved, and enlightened teachers.
