Paramdhan/Darcy Arthur had studied other forms of yoga, but the first time she tried Kundalini Yoga in 2007, she knew she had found a form of yoga that she felt a deep connection. This began an immersion into the teachings that led her to complete her 500 Hour Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training studying around the world with a variety of trainers. Having studied Hypnosis and Reconnective Healing prior to her yoga studies, she found all she had learned about the mind body connection from those modalities was affirmed in the ancient practice of Kundalini Yoga. Darcy has been teaching Kundalini yoga since 2011 at both her studio and in the schools in Brighton, where she has volunteered to run a yoga and meditation program for students. Darcy believes that everyone can benefit from yoga and meditation, she teaches in a way that makes yoga both accessible and fun to students of all abilities. Darcy is in the process of completing her University Certificate in Counselling Women and her BA Psychology. It is her intention to pursue a Master of Counselling Psychology and register as a psychotherapist. Combining her academic learning with yoga as an evidence-based practice infuses her teaching and fuels her passion for helping others to achieve their health and wellness goals.
