I still remember the first yoga class I went to with David. It was the first class I’d been to in 2010 and David did so well at bringing in the new year through our practice that day. Yoga is much more to me than physical stretching and David does so well at weaving in […]

I was lucky enough to take a class from David five years ago. I haven’t stopped going to his classes since. David’s caring approach makes yoga accessible and enjoyable. One of his mantras, “go for the wow, not for the ow,” exemplifies his philosophy as a teacher. He is also a kind and gentle human […]
