Learn the Art of Sequencing. Discuss and analyze each of the pose families. Learn how forward bends, backbends, twists, standing poses, and inversions work so you can teach vinyasa, restorative, and fundamentals-based classes that are safe, exhilarating, challenging and fulfilling for every student level.
Learn the Art of Pranayama and Meditation. Whether teaching a slow mindful based practice or a more exhilarating flow class, learn to incorporate the breath and meditation for energizing the body, relaxing the mind and awakening spirit.  This training specifically addresses pranayama techniques, focusing on the western physiological relationship to the respiratory system.

Learn the Art of Yoga Anatomy. Have fun looking at the beautifully designed architecture of the body and seeing how poses exist on the muscular and skeletal levels. Deconstruct classical yoga poses so you have a deeper understanding of alignment and lines of action principles.

“I can’t say enough good things about my teacher training experience at DYC.  It is the most thorough program from one of if not THE most reputable places.  I actually attended the training to expand my own knowledge and practice, not really with the intention to teach.

I’ve since started teaching and have an even greater appreciation for the training because of the depth and breadth of the foundation it provided.

And there’s just something special about DYC…the space, the teachers, the offerings outside of the yoga classes. It’s an incredible place filled with people who genuinely care.  I feel at home every time I go back and still go back for classes, workshops, etc. (and I don’t live in Dallas!).”  DM


“Teacher Training at DYC was undoubtedly the biggest catalyst for change I have experienced in my life.  The well versed and approachable teachers allowed for a deeper understanding of not only the asana/poses, but the intention with which we practice them. The program allowed for deep self-reflection, and a way for each individual to connect with their unique voice.

In addition, I gained a beautiful community of people who I now consider life-long best friends.  I highly recommend giving yourself this gift of deeper self-awareness with an extraordinary energy found only at The Dallas Yoga Center. “  LM


"Amazing training were I have received exactly what I needed to become a caring and compassionate teacher. We've been nourished, deconstructed, reconstructed for the past several months and I really feel ready to step out into the world and make this dream happen! I'm so inspired, energized and endlessly curious. I'm holding such deep appreciation for all the TT instructors at the DYC. It's been such a transformative and empowering journey.

I found the whole format very suitable for my learning experience. All the weekend intensives were so integral to create a solid foundation. All that information became connected and crystallized as I was attending the classes with our unlimited pass. The requirement of attending a certain number of classes was definitely a huge part of really letting everything sink in through experience. The class observations were so informative and suddenly many light bulbs lit up in my head. Especially, after my observations, as I was attending classes for my own practice my mind was just absorbing so much information and going through a lot of sorting and re-organization.

Thank you all so much for putting together a teacher training that really works. I couldn't point out any shortcomings, as to me it was exactly how it needed to be. I loved the freedom to find our own voice and the tight group where we could experiment with our unique expression, what it really looks like without any judgement. I'm so grateful for all your time and energy put towards the training."

Whether it is your intention to embark on a teacher training adventure in hopes to make teaching yoga your full time job, part-time career, or to deepen your personal practice and learn more about the philosophy of yoga, DYC is here to support you on the journey.

We Inspire

DYC Teacher Training and the DYC team of teachers hope to resonate with you and inspire you. DYC teachers are experienced, passionate about yoga -on and off the mat- and are here to inspire you to dive deep, stretch your edges and to discover more about yourself and the many layers of yoga.

Thorough and Enriching

DYC Teacher Training takes students from all types of yoga styles and provides an education that explores the depths of yoga as a mind-body-spirit practice. DYC instructors are skilled at providing a foundation for understanding the fundamentals of teaching both asana and Vinyasa. And DYC training covers anatomy, yoga history, teaching methodology and philosophy and highlights alignment principles and how to deconstruct the poses.

Your True Voice

DYC is dedicated to helping you find your passion for sharing the practice in a manner that reflects your true voice. We do not provide a yoga script. DYC teaches students the basics of sequencing and asana so that students have the capacity to create a class for whatever level they choose.

Course Structure

DYC offers students a weekend program taught over five months. We space out the trainings so students can process and absorb the information into their mind and bodies and so that students can dedicate the time to necessary to fully commit to the training.

Student/Teacher Ratio

Usually there are between 15 and 30 students in the training. No matter the size, we make sure students feel seen, heard and supported.


DYC instructors see that it is important for students to feel that they will be able to connect to their fellow trainees and teachers. Lasting connections and friendships are often forged during teacher trainings. We want students to connect and create community, not get lost in a crowd.

Follow up and Support

After the training is complete there is support. DYC provides continuing education, a mentorship program and many ways to stay connected post training. Plus all DYC Teacher Training graduates receive a 15% discount off the regular price of all the workshops, events and classes that DYC offers. Can’t beat that!!
