As a Pilates teacher and practitioner, I have taken many ‘online’ Pilates courses. They are convenient and have value to my practice. However, what I experienced when I booked my online lesson with Darien was so much more than just an online class. This was a very generous hour with Darien, who carries the thread of pure Pilates that connects back to its origin. If you want to experience Pilates as it was meant to be experienced, to understand the depth that can be plumbed in a single exercise, and to feel the precision of movement in your own body, then a lesson with Darien is worth its weight in Gold.
Thank you, Darien for offering this brilliant service!
I discovered Darien Gold on line about 4 years ago while searching for “Pilates”. I happened on a youtube video of her going through basic Pilates sequences. The first thing that struck me is she has the body of a Greek athlete – sleek, lean cut and well defined. And her movements were precise, controlled and consciously directed. I could tell right away that I had found “my teacher” as well as a true disciple in Pilates itself. I knew that she was the embodiment of Joseph Pilates technique with ZERO alterations.
From the training and personal attention I have received from both watching and working out with her through her videos to privates, I was able to have her hone in on my body and gain an understanding of the deep nature of Pilates and a true appreciation for its unique and exacting movements. It made me know myself and my body on a deeper level.
Thank you Darien, so glad I found you.
I’m teaching pilates in Korea for 10 years. I watched Darien’s exercising on Youtube 5 years ago. I thought “It’s cool and that’s what I should do” and admired her for constantly hard workouts and teaching. After about a year of contact with Darien, I started on online training. It’s attractive to be able to exercise beyond the limits of the time and the distance. I’ve had a lot of personal trainings and workshops so I can find how wonderful her lesson is. Her class was concise, precise, and focused on me rather than any other class enough not to think it is the online class. She led me to feel what I haven’t had before to a maximum.
I’ve come to strengthen the weakest parts and relax the tensed parts, which is the standard pilates. Through this online class, I was able to think more broadly and have come to know my infinite potential power. I’m grateful to have Darien’s online program for constant exercising and soon I’m going to visit her in person and get personal training. I highly recommend Darien’s wonderful online program.
