Hi! I am Darcy White and I love teaching yoga in DC because it enables me to provide a vehicle for individuals to cultivate a more fulfilling life in a local culture known for its demanding and stressful work environment.
In my own practice, I feel a sense of release and surrendering of life’s nuisances every time I step onto the mat, and the concentration and awareness the asanas require deepens my sense of connection and acceptance of who I am—who we all are!
While every yoga experience is unique to the individual, I love being able to provide an avenue for others to relax, explore and make it their own.
Being deaf, yoga is not fully accessible in most DC studios, although I cannot make that statement without praising the many DC yoga instructors who have, through their own initiative, accommodated that in creative ways. With DC’s diverse population, I am inspired to make yoga accessible to everyone.
I’ll be a teaching a series of yoga classes in American Sign Language on Wednesday evenings, 6:30-7:30pm, at Luther Place Memorial Church in Logan’s Circle. Classes start June 6th and go through July 18th (no class July 4th). Hearing, Deaf, Signers, Non-signers welcome—voice interpretation will be provided! Message me for more info!
Do you know any deaf yogi’s (or aspiring) please tell them about my classes!
