Darlene Dearen | Meet the Radiant Hot Yoga teachers

”If yoga can save my life, it can save yours.”

Darlene

Radiant Hot Yoga owner and teacher: Darlene Dearen

Darlene always says “If yoga can save my life, it can save yours.”

Raised by an Apache Indian Medicine Father and a spiritual healer Mother, Darlene has always had a deep spiritual foundation and awareness… but she lost sight of it for many years. Life’s painful circumstances ate at her soul. It was her yoga practice that brought it all back together, brought her back to her roots, healed her heart, her mind, and reminded her of who she was born to be.

Darlene has spent years teaching and inspiring through the practice of Yoga, and has also served women as a Certified Doula, Childbirth Educator, Lactation Consultan & Midwife.

Yoga has been so completely transformational for Darlene that she knows it is her life’s work to share it. As owner of Radiant Hot Yoga and teacher her vision and passion is to heal and inspire people to reach their potential.

More about Darlene

    “I really enjoyed Radiant Hot yoga. I am a beginner to hot yoga and Darlene, the instructor, was very helpful before and during the class. The studio was very clean, and the ambience was peaceful and welcoming.”

    “Five stars for sure! Beautiful studio, great instructors and very welcoming atmosphere!

    I’ve been to this studio for two months. I came here as often as I can because I’m so addicted to Radiant Hot Yoga and everyday I feel refreshed after class. 🙂 Darlene’s class is especially amazing. Her dialogue is very inspiring and encouraging. Other instructors are great too and some have their own styles.

    No judgement is probably the biggest reason I love this studio as I just started my yoga practice. But because of the encouraging atmosphere, I found I improve day by day through the nonjudgmental practice. This place is very welcoming no matter you are advanced or beginner.

    Also I really have to say the front desk girls are amazing as well!”

    “Not only is the studio one of the cleanest and most eye appealing I have been to, but Darlene the owner is a kind person with a love and passion for yoga. Taking a class led by her not only brings peace to an otherwise busy day and life, but you will work! Hot yoga makes you feel so amazing and it will transform your body in a way you didn’t know was possible! I am so happy that radiant hot yoga opened up for us locals!”

    “I agree with others that this is hands down the most beautiful yoga space I’ve ever been in. It’s warm and welcoming – every detail is thought out and well done. The energy in the studio and the teachers are exceptional. You feel like you are in a spa. Darlene has done a beautiful job creating a sacred space that is especially welcoming to all levels of yogis, especially beginners. The location is also super convenient and easy to find. I’m excited to see what workshops, additional classes and happenings RHY will do.”

    “Darlene’s hot yoga sequence is the best thing anyone can do for their body, mind and soul! You find pure balance mixed with an amazing workout, and guidance that makes you push yourself beyond your limits, while still having fun! I have been doing hot yoga for over 3 years now, and with Darlene’s classes, I have seen a significant change not only in my body, but my general attitude and happiness…..Not only will you become addicted to the workouts that will transform your body, but you will look forward to a relaxing time mixed with tons of fun! When you’re feeling down, go to Darlene’s class and your whole demeanor will be turned around!”

    Yasi A.

    “Are you kidding me, this place rocks! 1st of all did I just walk into a 5 star spa? It’s GORGEOUS! Staff is super friendly and accommodating. Everything you need is there to rent or buy, but all you need is mat, yoga towel and being prepared to have an amazing experience. As a fittnness instructor I am EXTREMELY particular on studios and instruction, I do not give 5 start unless it’s warranted. The actual practice studio is extremely clean & the classes… well it should not surprise you that based on my 5 star rating Review ARE AWESOME! This is not boring yoga, this is fun, a workout, deep stretching, working your core, lifting your YOGA spirit. The instructor, Darlene (also the owner) walked around & checked form on everyone, corrected us & and even gave us some hands on adjustments. Loved that! Oh & they play fun up beat music!! No wonder the name is Radiant Yoga you leave there feeling RADIANT!”
