"I am pure energy and I am confident"
Hi! I'm Darrick Goodman, a Certified Kemetic Yoga Instructor (CKYT) at the 200HR level. I currently reside in Atlanta with my beautiful wife Leslie of five years. I've been practicing yoga for four years, and have been teaching it for over two years throughout Atlanta. The impact has been life changing! At first, yoga was just a different form of exercise; however, the more I begin to connect with the mental aspect, I started to learn that it was so much more. It helped me with my stress levels, my patience, and the breath connection opened up so many mental planes for me. This epiphany led me to want to share this to individuals I knew personally, those who didn't handle stress as well. My approach to teaching is to be patient and understand that is OK to "begin again every day." I incorporate this approach in my own journey by continuing to expand my knowledge and always readily seeking more growth. I've also gained additional training in a mindfulness practice immersion course for disadvantaged populations and those affected by trauma. Yoga is for everyone! Freedom is a state of mind. We are all on this journey in seeking our self truth. I am so honored to assist you on your journey.
Tosi is a yoga instructor (200 RYT) and yoga for athletes specialist based in Atlanta, GA. She is a former Division 1 volleyball player from the University of Connecticut. During her time as a middle blocker at UConn, she missed only 4 games in her 120 game career. In her junior year, Tosi recorded a team-high hitting percentage of .349, which was good for third in the American Athletic Conference and the fourth-best single season mark in program history. Tosi also received academic all conference all 4 years. She started practicing yoga in 2016 when it was introduced to her volleyball team and came to the realization that this was her passion. While she continued her college career, free time was limited but as soon as her career ended, Tosi took her yoga practice as far as she could. She received her teaching certification after college and has been teaching and learning ever since. Her yogis range from professional athletes with affiliations in the WNBA as well as overseas organizations in addition to former and current collegiate athletes across sports. She prides herself, as a former athlete, with being able to identify what is best for each athlete.
When Tosi is not doing yoga, she loves spending time with her family, traveling and exploring and living life to the fullest. Her passions include racial equality and cultural diversity. Tosi states “I am fortunate to come from a mixed family, my father is from Nigeria and my mother from America. They have shown me the importance of acceptance and celebration of who you are, no matter the color of your skin”.
Her favorite quote is by Dr. Seuss “today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is you-er than you”. She states “I try to live my life keeping this quote in mind, no one can be me and that alone makes me exceptional. This is the philosophy that I try to share with my yogis.
