She continues her teacher training at Portland Power Yoga under the tutelage of Alice Riccardi. Darcy has also studied with Roberto Lim and Elizabeth Huntsman during their visits to Maine. She has attended Personal Revolution Immersion Days with Baron Baptiste in both New York City and Boston.
A fixture in the fitness industry in Portland for over sixteen years, Darcy has worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. While she has taught most exercise formats, including Kickboxing, Boot Camp and Weight Training, she is perhaps most widely known as Maine's premier Step Aerobics instructor and, more recently, a pioneer in introducing Zumba to the Portland area gym circuit. She currently teaches at Lifestyle Fitness, World Gym and Bay Club along with the fitness facilities at Unum, Anthem and Hannaford. Her love of dance and movement along with her unique sense of humor, make her a much sought after teacher.
She has studied both Anatomy and Physiology along with Kinesiology at USM. She also graduated from the New Hampshire Institute of Therapeutic Arts and is a Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of Maine. Her specialty is a Hawaiian style of bodywork called LomiLomi. She is also a Level II Reiki practitioner.
Intent on continuing the transformation that began when she attended her first class at Portland Power Yoga, Darcy attended the Landmark Forum in September, 2009 and the Landmark Advanced Course in December, 2009. She credits the Landmark Education curriculum with unearthing many of the tools needed to live an extraordinary life.
Darcy brings her wealth of knowledge, her passion for yoga and her joy of life to her students during her classes at Portland Power Yoga. Having successfully maintained a 75 pound weight loss over the course of the last sixteen years, she understands the need for discipline, surrender and compassion. In her teaching, her hope is to encourage others to reach for their goals, whatever they may be.
