Dores says: I credit much of my personal and professional success to my commitment to holistic health. As a certified yoga teacher, I have been teaching yoga and mindfulness at studios and corporate offices for almost five years. I am passionate about teaching people to use the tools they already have--mind, body, and spirit-- to effect positive change in their lives. However, I wasn't always so amenable to yoga and mindfulness.
My unlikely love affair with yoga began at age 20. As a Type A triathlete, I dismissed yoga as "too slow" and "too easy." However, when a quadricep injury left me sidelined from my usual activities, I reluctantly resigned myself to yoga classes. Sometimes in life, what initially feels like a punishment turns out to be a blessing in disguise — I fell in love with the mental and physical benefits of a regular yoga practice.
As I deepened my practice at yoga studios around the country, my fitness focus shifted from “torching calories” to feeling good. My desire to continue yogic education and share my passion for wellness led me to complete a 200-hour teacher training from Uptown Yoga in Fall 2013. After receiving my teaching certification, I taught free weekly yoga classes to TI coworkers for three years. I knew I was ready to share the transformative power of yoga with a broader audience when those free classes became the highlight of my week! In 2016, I began offering yoga classes at Yoga Chikitsa. Since then, I've expanded to offer mindfulness classes at Mastermind and Self-Compassion workshops at venues across DFW.
Yoga has helped me overcome an eating disorder, recognize and combat addiction, and navigate mental health challenges with confidence. I am called to share the journey of self-healing with my yoga students. It is impossible to overstate the benefits of self-commitment to uniting mind, body and spirit in daily practice.
