Vinyasa Advanced


This class is taught by:

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.

Chelsey Charbeneau

Chelsey Charbeneau has found her life's purpose in helping people become happier and healthier through her own healing journey. When she began practicing yoga she was an unhealthy person who could barely touch her toes. As her practice became more serious and her lifestyle habits changed she started recognizing the therapeutic effects on her mind, body and soul.
 

Chelsey is a certified yoga therapist, experienced registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance and a member of The International Association of Yoga Therapists. For over six years Chelsey shared her therapeutic yoga at a physical rehabilitation center in southern California. There she has helped to treat and manage many medical conditions and ailments such as chronic back and neck pain, headaches, anxiety, stress and autoimmune diseases.

 

During visits to family she found the Dallas Yoga Center to be her favorite studio with wide array of classes, and depth of teaching offered. She also discovered sound healing at the Gong Meditation with Kenny and was instantly hooked! Chelsey has recently moved back to her hometown of Dallas, and is excited to join the teaching staff at DYC.

 

Her expertise covers a wide spectrum from the strict Ashtanga method to a therapeutic approach. She loves to make the experienced yogi crave child's pose and the beginner feel their body for the first time. Her goal is always to provide an experience that is always nurturing, personal and safe.

Lynn Tran

Lynn began practicing yoga as an exercise activity in 2003, and it progressively changed her wellbeing and outlook in life. It was through consistent practice of yoga that Lynn’s mind began to shift. Her mindfulness in practice allowed her to discover a sense of compassion and inner peace that affected her on and off the mat. Inspired by this journey, Lynn works with students with hopes that they find their own sense of wellbeing through the practice of yoga.

 

Lynn is a 200 hour registered Yoga Alliance instructor and certified personal trainer. Working with a people is a true passion for Lynn, and her intuition and knowledge in yoga allows her to work compassionately and comfortably with diverse groups of students. She specializes in Hatha Yoga from the Kripalu lineage, and she teaches in the various forms of vinyasa flow, chair yoga, partner yoga, gentle yoga, yoga nidra, and restorative yoga.

Jen Mabus

Jennifer Mabus was drawn to teach yoga because of the way that the practice brought healing to her body and balance to her mind throughout her career as a professional dancer in NYC. She received her 500-hour professional yoga certification from YogaWorks in NYC in 2005, training under Jean Koerner, Tzahi Moskowitz, and other teachers in ISHTA, Hatha, and Iyengar-based traditions.
 
She has since been teaching yoga to varied populations, from helping individuals with special health needs to teaching young people a way center and ground. She believes that a yoga practice should aid the individual’s needs and challenges, and she teaches a range of classes from alignment-based Hatha/Vinyasa Flow to gentle and restorative practices.
 
Mabus is also a dance teacher, with an MFA in Dance and twenty years of experience, and yoga is a part of her teaching practice with universities, such as Sam Houston State University, and dance companies, such as Houston’s MET Dance Company.
 
Varied somatic practices and a lifelong study of the human body in motion greatly inform her classes, and her goal is to create space for people to come back home to their body and breath.
