Dean Hollingsworth found yoga in 2007 and immediately felt the impact it had upon his physical, mental and spiritual life. As his practice continues to deepen, his life continues to bloom and as a result he seeks to share this experience with others. He earned his 200hr RYT certification in 2012. A “chance encounter” then led him to meet and learn the Ashtanga method from Jeff Clardy, for which he is forever grateful. In an effort to further deepen his practice, Dean traveled to Mysore, India in October of 2014, and again in November 2015, where he studied Ashtanga Vinyasa in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois with Sharath Jois.
On his trip to Mysore in November of 2016, Sharath officially Authorized Dean to teach Ashtanga Yoga. Dean is the only Authorized teacher in the DFW Metroplex and one of 4 in the state of Texas.
He is passionate about sharing the teachings of his personal practice and all that he has learned with the DYC Ashtanga community.
