Embodied Vinyasa Flow


This class is taught by:

Lauren A Aguilar

Lauren has been in tune with the relationship between her body and her wellbeing for as long as she can remember. Through dance, martial arts, skiing, and running, she found the movements of her body as a form of liberation from the world around her. Yoga wasn’t always her favorite form of expression. Not knowing what she had signed up for, her first yoga class pushed Lauren to her limit and she nearly passed out, almost turning her away for good. Through a friend’s encouragement, she gave a yin yoga class a try and found the body mind connection she was looking for. This was a turning point.
 
She embarked on a month-long personal awareness program at her local studio to study mindfulness, Ayurveda, and asana. Eager to continue her training she enrolled and completed her 200-hour RYT at the Dallas Yoga Center. A natural nurturer and teacher, Lauren is thrilled to continue her journey of learning and teaching.
 
Today, as a finance professional at a major insurance company by day, Lauren seeks solace in yoga by night and on the weekends. In her work as a teacher, her focus is on providing the individualized support for her students, recognizing that everyone’s journey and transformation is unique, and arming her students with insight to deepen their own body awareness and movement practice in class and off the mat.

Sinclaire Dickinson

Sinclaire started her relationship with yoga because of its power to calm a fidgety mind, create balance and make space for reflection. She practices both to keep in motion and to slow down.
 
After graduating from TCU, Sinclaire joined the desk job labor force to see first hand the epidemic of the sedentary lifestyle. This inspired her to ramp up her own movement practice and to pursue stirring it in others. She strives to help bring movement to the stagnant, stillness to the overactive and balance to all.
 
Sinclaire is a born and raised Texan but her only giveaway is her horse Pioneer, with whom she spends a lot of her off-the-mat recreation hours with. Like the mat, the saddle is a great place to get in touch with movement and let go of the noise.

Cheryl King

Cheryl King began practicing yoga and meditation while studying World Religions in college. Upon graduation she traveled to Thailand seeking cultural immersion in the epicenter of Theravada Buddhism. Self-exploration took a backseat to career and family over the next two decades, but a health crisis brought her to a state of utter depletion by age 43. One Friday night in 2007, desperate for help, she tried Chris Green’s Restorative yoga class at DYC seeking relief, and she found it. The Dallas Yoga Center provided the solace and support, the hope and strength to sustain her through this next phase of her life’s journey.
 

In time, yoga and meditation infused all aspects of her life, and eventually led to a career change—after twenty years of teaching British Literature, she retired from academia and currently teaches yoga and meditation full time.

 

Cheryl brings an interdisciplinary approach to her students, combining mindfulness and movement to restore body / mind unity, invite self-discovery, and deepen self-compassion.

 

Drawing inspiration from mentors as diverse as Julliard dance instructor Irene Dowd and MBSR pioneer Jon Kabat Zinn, Cheryl’s approach includes utilizing breath, imagination, and curiosity to encourage a moment-to-moment experience of connection to self and others. Through anatomical alignment and mindful movement, her yoga and meditation practice promotes a radiantly healthy body-mind-spirit.
