Darby Canessa is a dancer and yoga teacher based in New York City. She graduated from Marymount Manhattan College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts. Since then, she has completed the 200 and 300 hour vinyasa yoga teacher trainings at Sonic Yoga. She is also certified in Prenatal Yoga and Yoga Trance Dance. She is delighted to share the practice of Yoga with others!
Darby began practicing Vinyasa Yoga to release tension in her dancing. As many new practices work out, she began to realize the positive effects of Yoga. Darby believes in the power of community to inspire change, growth, and connection.
Having a strong background in dance, Darby is familiar with the importance of using the body as a vehicle for expression and connection. She is inspired by the commonalities of Dance and Yoga, such as the positive relationship between the body and mind, the ever-growing awareness, the feeling and experience of fulfillment, and the power to heal. The class explores the movements and pathways of energy within and around the human body. We work to find a balance of mobility and stability in the body. Through a flow, we will find ways to connect and increase awareness, so that we can better ourselves and the world around us.
