IT qualifications
STOTT PILATES® Matwork & Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, & Barrels


With an extensive background in dancing and a fascination with the intricacies of the human body, Darcy easily embraced her Pilates practice when she began studying it in 2001 at the Merrithew Corporate Training Center in Toronto. By 2003, she was asked to join the company as an Instructor Trainer and her career took off with international travel to represent Merrithew as an Instructor Trainer at workshops and exams. She also played an intrinsic role in the development of Merrithew’s DVDs, manuals and other course materials for STOTT PILATES®. In 2008, Darcy opened Full Circle Studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she continues to train and work privately with clients and small groups. She also continues to attend workshops and study anatomy to further deepen her understanding of mindful movement.
