About Dara

Dara is the Southern daughter of a Chicago native and New Yorker. She grew up alongside her two older sisters in North Carolina and prefers country living so that she can see the stars and trees. Her mother introduced her to the YMCA as a pre-teen and she has been playing team sports or in the gym ever since. Her favorite sport is rugby which she played in college, and now she loves weight lifting and anaerobic power training. Dara studied science and philosophy in college and plans to return to school to pursue a doctorate in Nursing. She became a 200hr yoga teacher in 2017 and is also an ACE certified personal trainer. She established On.Da.Mat to begin her work within the wellness industry. Her commitments are to accessibility, holistic practices, and serving the Black community. Dara believes that she can create sustainable joy for her clients as they navigate the constant flux of life and stress through innovative healing. Dara will be attending nursing school at an HBCU in North Carolina and have her RN degree by 2022. She hopes to help those who have reservations around their wellness to redefine "healthy" and start their journeys.
