Daren Friesen, director and founder of Moksha, has been an avid student of yoga since starting his practice in 1989. He has traveled to India 13 years in a row and has spent over 30 months there studying yoga, ayurveda, sanskrit, and sutras. During 1998 and 1999, Daren studied at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute (Laksmipuram) with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Drawing upon his studies with revered teachers such as Leeann Carey, Bryan Kest, Shiva Rea, and Seane Corn, and his time with masters in India, Daren developed his own style of Vinyasa flow with an Ashtanga influence.
Today, Daren continues to impart the classical priciples of yoga in a modern setting. Moksha is the Midwest’s largest yoga center and is home to more than 40 teachers, thousands of students, and the next generation of inspired and skilled yoga teachers.
