Things I especially appreciate: 1.  Precision.  For me, precise alignment is very important (maybe I get this from all of those ballet classes?) and I feel that you pay the right kind of attention to where the body is in space without making a yoga class or session feel like a geometry lesson. 2.  Professionalism.  […]

David has been an intricate part of my yoga experience here in the bay area. I stumbled upon his class at 7th heaven studio in Berkeley by happenstance and couldn’t be happier. David has an amazing way of tying in all the aspects of yoga that I love so gracefully. He is specific about aligning the […]

Im so grateful to have found David several years ago. I started attending his classes after a bike accident and suffering with a torn rotator cuff injury. He gave me the confidence to practice yoga again safely and to realize I was stronger than I believed despite my limitations. His knowledge of anatomy was impressive. […]

I think something really opened up inside of me since David guided me through a really powerful somatic experience a couple of weeks ago. He helped me move through the trauma in a way that felt cleansing, healing, and clarifying.  In the last week, my sense of my intuition is so much clearer and louder […]

The tips you gave me on how to position my feet in order to help my fallen arches has really stuck with me and I no longer have any pain in my achilles tendon on my right side…or maybe it was my left…I actually can’t remember because the pain has been gone for over a […]

Thank you for yesterday’s lesson; my neck and shoulders felt amazing (and I really don’t think I’m exaggerating on this…though maybe what I mean is normal?) afterward and I’m definitely working on being more aware of my neck and shoulders as I move through the day.

Hey David! Heck yes it is helping majorly! Meeting with you has already helped me raise awareness of my actions compared to only a short time ago. Whether in class, transit or in-between task or obligations. The focus you have brought me is bringing me much needed help; you are helping me trust, re-evaluate and […]

David I like how you focus and listen, keep eye contact, ask questions, make suggestions for action: clearing clutter, making important phone calls, how to be a relevant aunt. I no longer say “sort of” or “kind of.” You don’t give up, you explore another ways, and you introduced me to negotiating & re-negotiating if […]
