Longtime Dallas Yoga Center relocates to new address on Lemmon Avenue
After 30-plus years, one of the earliest yoga outfits in Dallas has relocated to a new home. Dallas Yoga Center opened in new digs in November at 4140 Lemmon Ave. #280, taking over a space abover Gloria's that was previously occupied by Yoga Sport.
For the past two years, the center was doing classes digitally and in temporary spaces, including the Sammons Center for the Arts, a studio on Lovers Lane, and Klyde Warren Park on weekends.
The new space has two studios, including a "healing room" for small group immersions for more impactful and healing experiences.
That address can be challenging since there is limited drive-up parking, but there's an underground parking garage is available on Douglas Avenue and students can take the elevator to the second floor to the studio.
Dallas is often stymied by no drive-up parking, but perhaps yogis are a more persevering lot. Gloria's has survived, surely a yoga studio can as well.
The DYC was originally founded in 1989, then taken over a decade later by brothers David Sunshine and Daniel Sunshine. As David states in this profile, the center was founded before yoga and mindfulness became the popular mainstream practice it is today; at that time in the south, people who practiced yoga were considered outliers, strange, and sometimes part of a cult.
They host more than 40 classes per week, both in-person and digitally, including single classes, 10 class packs, and monthly memberships, ranging from $25/class to $120/month. Private lessons are also available, and they also offer training for aspiring yoga teachers.
A release notes that their lineup has evolved over the years, weaving yoga and mindfulness classes with sound healing, breath work, energy healing, sound healing, reiki, and yoga nidra.
“In today's world, we are faced with ever increasing complex challenges and DYC has decided to incorporate a wellness immersion program to help individuals find greater strength, flexibility, peace and calm amidst these turbulent times,” David Sunshine says.
