"I had a great training experience with Dallas Yoga Center. Our program was both in-person and virtual (I was a virtual student), and they worked very hard to make all students feel engaged and supported. The program was well-structured and thought out, and I felt like I naturally improved as a teacher by attending the training, participating in and observing DYC classes, and teaching. Compared to many other YTT students in other programs, I feel like we were given many opportunities to teach real classes to improve our teaching and sequencing skills. DYC has an excellent program and very glad I was able to be one of their students and graduates." M King

Laura Abbott Coan

Lead Trainer

Laura Abbott Coan is a certified Yoga Therapist who loves the healing art of yoga to support REAL life. Laura received her training from Gary Kraftsow, American Viniyoga. She worked in a collaborative counseling practice for 7 years where she gained experience in collaborating with licensed professional counselors using yoga and talk therapy to support mental health, as well as creating curriculum for psychotherapeutic yoga trainings. She believes this combination is a powerful way to create transformation. REAL life can be hard and Yoga can help build resiliency, nourish and support you no matter where you are.

She is passionate about teaching yoga as a lifestyle not an exercise regime. Her mentorship program helps students of yoga connect more deeply to the foundation, philosophy, and practices that make things happen! There is definitely a little magic that happens personally and as a teacher when you study with her!

Creating sacred space during retreats is one of Laura’s gifts. She has found retreats to be an integral part of her own journey that clears her head and connects her to her own true nature where wisdom, love and joy reside. There’s just something so special about being surrounded by community and using that pulsation to dig deep and arrive on the other side! She believes in justice for all and dedicates time and action to understanding systemic racism within herself and in her community. She holds a white accountability group to keep herself and others learning and unlearning. She uses the tools of yoga to soothe the discomfort that inevitably arises and needs to be addressed to truly heal and move forward together.

Caroline Besley

Lead Trainer

Caroline has been practicing yoga since 1998 and teaching since 2012. Her background in dance and various other movement modalities has greatly informed her own yoga practice and she likes to bring that perspective to others, inviting joy and freedom of movement into the body. Caroline teaches a healthy alignment for overall ease and flow of energy. Her joyful presence infuses her students with a playfulness and her attention to individual needs celebrates the uniqueness of each student. Caroline continues to study regularly with Doug Keller and Christina Sell, who have inspired her throughout her yoga journey.

Sarah Sampson

Mindfulness Trainer

As the former Social-Emotional Learning Facilitator for Keller ISD, Sarah led the district-wide implementation of SEL and mindfulness-based activities for over 34,000 students. Sarah is trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction through the UC San Diego Medical School. As a certified social-emotional learning, restorative practices, mindfulness instructor and yoga teacher, Sarah has developed training, curriculum and workshops to empower individuals nationwide.

Sandi Tindal

Sandi Tindal comes from a noteworthy career in engineering and has applied the rigorous thinking and creativity she cultivated in that profession to her work as a yoga teacher - with a high degree of sensitivity and care, she skillfully adapts the ancient teachings and tools of yoga to help others experience their personal pathways for health, healing and transformation in the context of modern life. In addition to continuing her professional Yoga Therapist training under Gary Kraftsow of the American Viniyoga Institute, she is actively engaged in supporting the Aquatics Therapy and Rehab Institute with high caliber material for their members to learn how to bring yoga to the aquatic environment as part of their professional tool set.

Sandi is very interested in making yoga accessible for disadvantaged and disabled populations. She has provided yoga classes for residents of a local safe house for survivors of human trafficking and has worked on establishing a partnership with a local VA hospital to enhance their aquatics program with yoga.

Sandi enjoys studying from different wisdom traditions and finds that elements of the yoga sutras appear in palpable, practical ways in the movement of her life when she is really paying attention. She is fascinated by the idea of using the mind to overcome the mind and feels that the depth of meaning in life's moments are infused and hidden in very simple acts - for her, encountering the sacred and the spiritual is about how you are seeing what is happening within you and around you.

Students who have learned about yoga and mentored under her have enjoyed the high-level of attention she gives to detail and nuance to support their understanding and personal development, as well as the concrete feedback and encouragement she provides them for their next steps. Anyone who has a leaning toward sharpening their understanding of sequencing asana and movement biomechanics, an interest in delving more into the link between pranayama and physiology, and/or a desire to experience integrating chanting and meditation in their personal practice to support mental-emotional health, will find their time with Sandi to be fruitful and enriching
