Beginners Yoga


This class is taught by:

Cheryl King

Cheryl King first encountered yoga and meditation in the 1980’s as a college student. Studying Buddhism with Professor Frederick J Streng, she became fascinated with the philosophy, ritual, and beauty of the Buddhist meditation practice and made her first trip to Thailand for a cultural immersion upon graduation.
 
Cheryl’s teaching style is interdisciplinary with emphasis on gentle movement and anatomical alignment. She encourages students to find and sustain a moment-to-moment experience through the practice of yoga and meditation.
 

Cheryl brings a spirit of loving kindness to her own practice and her teaching. Her life’s work involves exploring and teaching connection to self and one another.

 

Cheryl received her RYT 200 Hr at Dallas Yoga Center.

Molly Reid

 
Molly has always loved movement as a means of self-expression, personal growth, and pure pleasure. She studied ballet and modern dance throughout her life, and after receiving her BFA in dance in 2007, she danced professionally in NYC for several years.
 
 

Finding that yoga grounded and balanced her both mentally and physically, she first approached yoga as a great way to cross train as a dancer. When the rigors of pursuing a career in dance no longer seemed to be serving her, she shifted her focus to yoga. She earned her 200 RYT from YogaWorks in 2012 and dove into teaching Vinyasa in Brooklyn.

 

Molly joined the Dallas Yoga Center staff in 2015, and is excited to learn from the teachers and students of this community. Molly enjoys a steady yet playful, vigorous but mindful, approach to her personal practice, and aims to give her students that kind of experience in her classes.

Caroline Besley

Caroline has been practicing yoga since 1998 and dancing since birth. She has an innate curiosity about the world, and loves how yoga teaches her something new every single day. She encourages her students to question, learn, and discover new things about their bodies, their minds, and the world around them.

 

Her teaching style and practice are influenced by the many exceptional teachers she has had the opportunity to study with, including Marylou McNamara, Margaret Townsend, and Mary Pappas-Sandonas. She earned her 200 hr RYT from the Dallas Yoga Center.

Caroline also draws from her dance background, bringing joy and freedom of movement into her teaching.

Shelagh McElroy

Shelagh began her practice in 1996 to help alleviate career stress, and began teaching yoga full time in 2001. With a degree in psychology, she brings fun, acceptance, and a down-to-earth, humorous approach to her classes. She tailors her teaching approach in a way that both supports and challenges students.
 
 
 
She is a self-confessed anatomy geek and done extensive studies in Yoga for Scoliosis with Elise Browning-Miller, and international studies in yoga and anatomy with Gary Carter in London, and Peter Blackaby in Windsor, England and Toronto, Canada.
