Passionate Moves 

A fresh approach to movement...A fresh approach to life!


Darlene Danko Sowa, MA, CHTP, is an exercise physiologist, energy practitioner and avid nature lover.  Her dual passion in life is to help people explore their divine potential through movement and discover their innate ability to heal from within, leading them to a spirit-driven, heart-centered way of being.  Combining her experience in fitness and the healing arts, she works to encourage people to embrace a higher vision of who they are through living from the sacred space of the heart.

As co-founder of Professional Fitness Systems, she spearheaded dozens of wellness programs in both the corporate and community setting for over 15 years.  Her interest in the body/mind/spirit aspect of exercise led her to explore the field of healing arts where she studied various forms of energy medicine.  This study included esoteric healing, quantum healing, energy anatomy, reiki, energetic transformation and healing touch.  She later became certified as a Healing Touch Practitioner.

Studying both exercise physiology and energy medicine has given Darlene a unique background from which to explore the unlimited possibilities of human potential.  From this background, she developed her own program, Passionate Moves, which elevates exercise from a purely physical activity to a transformational experience.   When done in nature, Passionate Moves, is also designed to provide participants with a unique opportunity to discover the beauty in and around them in a personal and profound way. 

Darlene's love of movement as a source of spiritual growth led her to write her first book, Taking Flight Through Movement, which is an inspirational and motivational book about the power of exercise to transform lives.  She currently speaks and holds workshops on the topic of exercise and spirituality  as well as operates a private practice in energy medicine.  Darlene can be contacted at 828-273-5567 or through this website.  Just click the contact tab above.

Be Ready to Move

Every day in Africa, a lion wakes up.  It knows it has to move faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve.  Every day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.  It knows it has to move faster than the fastest lion or it will die.  It really doesn't matter if you're a lion or a gazelle.  What matters is that when the sun comes up, you better be moving.
