Dallas Yoga Center History & Mission

Awakening the transformative power of yoga
to integrate and heal body and mind


Since 1989, The Dallas Yoga Center has been a yoga and integrative wellness center dedicated to nourishing the body, mind, and spirit. Through its mission to provide the highest quality yoga instruction and holistic wellness, DYC has inspired people of all ages and backgrounds to live more mindful, healthier lives.


Dallas yogi and certified Iyengar instructor Fred Dowd founded DYC as a place for in-depth exploration of yoga beyond any particular style.


David Sunshine took over DYC as owner and director in 1998 and expanded the Dallas Yoga Center from the initial single studio into the vast four studio yoga and wellness center that it is today.


Under David's direction, DYC has become a nationally respected leader in yoga and holistic living providing over 70 diverse classes per week, workshops and retreats for those seeking real change and personal growth. To people of all ages seeking healthier and more mindful lives, the Dallas Yoga Center is North Texas’ trusted yoga and center that delivers intelligent, personalized, and authentic yoga through its caring expert teachers, broad scope and depth of classes, and commitment to community driven quality service.

DYC's commitment to the local, regional and national yoga community is to work to build bonds and relationships among yoga students, teachers and educators. DYC offers regular yoga and wellness lectures, trainings and events that strengthen and support the community. DYC has a long-standing relationship with numerous senior presenters, internationally renowned authors and master teachers in the field of yoga, wellness and meditation. Through hosting workshops with these international as well as local instructors as well as offering a thorough in-depth teacher training, DYC strives to provide the highest quality yoga instruction for those that want to devote their professional lives to creating the environment for experiencing the path and practice of yoga.

In 2010, the Dallas Yoga Center opened its doors to an adjoining 4,000 sq, ft Holistic Wellness Center offering a full spectrum of integrative medicine and healing arts. Through the wide breadth and depth of yoga and wellness classes, cutting edge somatic modalities and integrative wellness services, we serve and educate our community and provide the tools for healing, growth, and self-exploration. The variety and quality of these services combined with an impressive schedule of regional and international instructors makes the Dallas Yoga Center North Texas' most trusted source for yoga and wellness.
