Sunnye’s approach to yoga is to find the best version of a pose for each individual and to honor the ever-changing landscape of our bodies from day-to-day.  Whether desiring improved mobility, recovering from an injury, a desk jockey or an athlete, her approach is to meet your needs.  She looks for non-intrusive ways to use the body to heal and restore through gentle stretching, myofascial release techniques and breathing.  Face Yoga Method is used to lift and strengthen muscles in the face with the added benefit of reducing tension.

I teach yoga because I want to make everyday a source of healing. It is my love and my passion. Mind, body and spirit come together for me in the energies of movement and the calm of breath of yoga. I began teaching yoga in 2003 after practicing for several years. In all my teaching, I focus on deep tissue release, joint mobility, and strength. Yoga can help anyone heal the aches of their body and spirit. It can also help athletes of all ages improve their performance and avoid or help heal injuries.

 

Bethany found her way to her first yoga class in 2002 as a stressed out, depressed college student in Denton, TX – and one liberating, sweet savasana later, she was hooked for life. A move to Los Angeles in 2006 (and more stress!) inspired her to delve deeper into her practice and since, she has been inspired by teachers Max Strom, Seane Corn, Kathryn Budig, Bryan Kest, Daniel Stewart, Claire Hartley and countless others along the way. She completed her 200-RYT in 2011 with Rising Lotus Yoga in Los Angeles and has taught in LA, Houston and now Dallas.

Yoga found me at the end of summer of 2005. I was going through a time of great grief when a kind friend took me to a powerful Vinyasa flow class at Down Dog Yoga in Dallas. I had never tried yoga before but, at least while I was on the mat, my mind was at peace. As an active player for the Dallas Harlequins Rugby Football Club, I came to embrace the physical benefits of daily asana. The practice transformed not only my physique but more profoundly, but my mind and soul.
