In 1997, David was honored to receive a rare teaching certificate, certifying him to teach Ashtanga yoga as taught by K. Pattabhi Jois. In 2001, he completed a teacher training with Richard Freeman. He has studied Sanskrit at the American Sanskrit Institute as well as in India.
David holds workshops on breath and bandhas, beginning and intermediate Ashtanga, and introductory teacher trainings at AYS and throughout the US. His teaching style is both challenging and supportive, and his deep knowledge and love of culture, history, and language provides his students with a rich and traditional, yet diverse yoga experience that is hard to come by. His love of music has found its inspiration in kirtans, which he now holds regularly at AYS and during his travels throughout the US.
