David took my tired, creaky, sweaty old self and showed me that things ain’t so bad after all. The one-on-one sessions are the best–you can focus on whatever is on your mind, and make HUGE strides. I wouldn’t have gone into a studio on a bet before working with David. Now I look forward to […]

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. You are constantly narrating my EXACT internal experience and giving me new doorways to walk through and new ways to process the sensations in my […]

David is wonderful. He knows his yoga asanas (poses) and anatomy very well, and can quickly see what the student needs and how to directly address any adjustments, either with physical contact (his adjustments are phenomenal) or just with very effective and easy to understand explanations. His real skill comes from a blending of his […]

I’ve been taking classes from David for a while now and he is definitely the best yoga teacher I’ve ever had. What I appreciate most is his deep understanding of anatomy and the body mechanics involved in yoga. Not only does he provide hands on adjustments during class, but he explains what your body is […]

I’m a very busy middleaged working mom and I fit in yoga classes when I can to keep my body from hurting, uplift my spirits, and maintain some balance in my life. There are lots of yoga classes in Berkeley, yet whenever I can I choose to go to David’s Wednesday morning class at 8:30 […]

David is everything you could want in a yoga teacher. His classes are the perfect mix of physical practice and insightful guidance. I’ve been to all levels of the classes he teaches, and have also taken private lessons. He is truly one-of-kind, take his class, you won’t be disappointed.

David is an outstanding yoga teacher who helps me find more sensitive awareness in yoga. He often knows just how to show me learn and stretch more deeply into the posture. David gives each person in the class so much personal attention. He tells wonderful and inspiring stories about his beautiful children! David teaches wonderful […]

David is an excellent yoga instructor and private yoga coach. I’ve done many styles of yoga for many years and while I almost always enjoy class (it is yoga after all!) there aren’t that many teachers that make me want to get in there specifically to work with them. David gives a great (and very […]

How does a Yoga teacher read all these gushing reviews, and not start getting sucked into a conversation with the ego? If yoga for you is about mindfulness, then David is a great way to get some refreshing perspective, and a gentle push from directions you wouldn’t expect. My favorite yoga teacher!

I am so glad that I get to write a testimonial about David’s life-enhancing, bliss-expanding, strength-building, soul-opening yoga classes.  I started attending class with him on my birthday, when he gently and lovingly guided me into meeting — and then exploring beyond — a particular physical edge.  That experience, one of *possibility* around what my […]
