Ian’s mission is to empower people regarding their true wellness, health of mind, body & spirit. Specifically, his objective is to help as many people as possible lead healthier, happier, spiritually realized lives.
As a former professional triathlete and corporate marketing person, Ian’s life took a drastic turn in his early 30’s when burnout, divorce, extreme financial stress and depression consumed him.

From here, Ian’s life-journey into yoga, mindfulness & meditation, vision quests + other indigenous spiritual ways, and serious Amazonian plant-based shamanism changed his life forever. Ian now thrives by sharing what he has experienced through teaching, training, and helping others to positively transform their lives through enhanced health, true wellness and the discovery of inner peace.

Read what some of his students and clients have to say:
“I just wanted to take a moment to share with you how much the TTC has meant to me. I did not know what to expect when I signed up but it has blown away any expectations I had. While I did expect to expand my knowledge as to the theory, history and practice of yoga and yoga anatomy as it applies to personal practice and especially teaching, I was not expecting the profound experience that it has been. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“Dear Ian, Our lives have changed since we met – Thanks for the knowledge & understanding that you share with John &I. ”
Rosa & John T.
“The world is a merrier place thanks to people like you!”

“Hi! Ian, Thanks a million for sharing, once again, such a beautiful teaching… Today, when you asked us to give thanks for something we felt grateful and to set out intention and offer our practice to someone or something, I gave thanks for the practice of yoga, and I offered both of my practices to you, who helps us by delivering the right messages, the right practices, the right positions, the right movements and breathing techniques all at the right time… We are all grateful to have you”
“Merci! This was a fantastic workshop!”
” Dear Ian, Words cannot describe my heartfelt gratitude for you and I would like to thank you for this wonderful and most inspirational yoga teacher training. You convinced me I could do it and kept me engaged throughout this entire journey. You shared the greatest gift of yoga and I will pass this on to others and so forth and forth. The divine light within, honors and salutes the divine light within you.”
“I am beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to take teacher training with the phenomenal Ian Darrah. To say the least, the 10-week course changed my life. Simply stated, I discovered a peace within myself I was not sure even existed and found a deep connection to my own inner wisdom, to those around me, and, ultimately, to the Universal wisdom. Ian raised spiritual conversation in a way that allowed for all of our personal understanding. His gentle and accessible approach encouraged us throughout the process.”
