David Sunshine

Owner - Dallas Yoga Center

From a young age, David was drawn to the infinite expanse of consciousness and the dance of somatic embodiment. His decades-long journey with yoga, meditation and eastern spirituality saw him sit at the feet of renowned teachers, from the revered Dalai Lama to the luminary yoga masters B.K.S. Iyengar and T.K.V. Desikachar. Embodying the space between ancient wisdom and the pulse of the present, David has since 1998 been the lifeblood of the Dallas Yoga Center, shaping it into a sanctuary of learning and transformation.

David experiences yoga as a divine communion of body, mind, and spirit, an odyssey towards true awakening. With a heart open to the mysteries of meditation, energy healing, and shamanic realms, he seeks the essence of the human soul and the dance of reality. He's a conduit of ancient wisdom in the West. When teaching yoga, he uses movement as medicine. He also loves to lead souls on transformative pilgrimages to lands that whisper tales of the ancient, like the sacred soils of India and Nepal.
