I had been on a search for a yoga teacher for several years when I stumbled into David’s class. After studying with the same teacher for 12 years in San Francisco, I was ready to end my commute and deep inside I knew I wanted a different style of teacher. In one class, I knew […]

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.  […]

Literally dozens of people have tried to help me over the years. Very very very few have succeeded to be helpful. None but you would I regard as my teacher.

David is a wonderful yoga teacher.  He manages to be very specific about alignment and healthy poses while also bringing in the broader picture of how the mind and body can work together to improve one’s life.  His is the one yoga class I will get myself to. I’ve also taken private classes, which fixed […]

I encountered David at Namaste yoga, where he was filling in for a colleague. In comparison to instructors at several other studios in Berkeley and Oakland that I frequent, David was superior. There are a few things about David that make him uniquely gifted: 1. he is perceptive — he looks and listens carefully to […]
