We had the good fortune of connecting with Dorothy Coleman-Pincus and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dorothy, why did you pursue an artistic or creative career?
Great question, why did I pursue an artistic or creative career? You know how they say, practice makes perfect, well, my motto is, “Practice makes permanent”. Like water, artistic/creative expression is my life line. I never knew life without it. I grew up in a family musical family. We expressed ourselves in many creative ways. My very first solo was in a church choir. I must have been around four. Seeing the reaction of the crowd really had a lasting effect on my life. It was an incredible experience.
Another time, I used to do daily growing up, was sing. Sing on top of this wooden box looking out my 7th floor window. The song Brother Louie by this American group Stories did a cover of the song. I would envision my life as a famous performer singing in front of thousands and thousands of people. The vision was so vivid and it came true, I got to sing all over the world twice and coaching, and doing energy healing as well. Now everything I do in life is always colored with an artistic/creative tone. “You can only experience yourself; you are the only doorway through which you can experience everything”- Dorothy Pincus

A producer, singer/songwriter, Dorothy uses coaching, sound, voice, breathing work and yoga techniques to ease your mind. The body needs to move daily to release good hormones. When oxytocin is released into certain parts of the brain, it can impact emotional, cognitive and good social behaviors. It is also known as the fuzzy hormone that promotes feelings of love, and well-being. Endorphins are chemicals produced by the body to relieve stress and pain. They work similarly to a class of drugs called opioids. Opioids relieve pain and can produce a feeling of euphoria which is sometimes prescribed for short-term use after surgery or for pain-relief. So, in theory, if we combine sounds to meet your happy chemicals that are released in the brain, Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin, Endorphin, then through my practice Yoga Speaks Volume-LA, we can potentially use it to tune-up the mind, body, spirit and massage the soul.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week-long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week-long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc. In your view what are some of the most fun, interesting, exciting people, places or things to check out?
If my friend came for a visit, the first stop would be to feed them at home so they could meet my family. My mom taught me, (RIP Mom) that the stomach is the heart to the soul…We would make a list of all their favorite spots, my favorite spots to set the tone of the week. Next stop would be a Lakers/Clipper game. We are an artistic and sports family. My husband is a sports writer in the NBA world. We are also season seat holders so it will be an honor for them to experience an extension of our life. LA Live has all sorts of restaurants, Lucky Strike, concerts at Microsoft Theater, Grammy Museum and show them the memorial they have of Kobe Bryant. Universal Studios, Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood Stars, and the Improv comedy stop would probably be next on our list. Venice/Santa Monica Pier would capture another part of LA vibe so that would be a great bike ride, or soak up some sun. Rent a place in Big Bear, to go zip-lining, skiing, and Big Bear nightlife. Disneyland, San Diego, and San Francisco would definitely be on the schedule. A day of spas would end the week, and Sunday would be taking them to my place of worship at Agape.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like “Shoutout” to my beautiful family Eric, Juliana, Maya, Kayla and my furry little daughter Bailey, you are why I work so hard… My extended families, love you all so much. I would like to give a “Shoutout to my Agape Church Family for spiritual practice Holistic Chamber of Commerce and Yoga Alliance. The four necessities in life to keep you balance are: Spiritual Practice, Family, Community and Career. Shoutout to my new Single next month TBA
