David discovered Ashtanga in 1973 through David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff. In 1975 he met K. Pattabhi Jois to the U.S. for the first time and he then initiated studies directly with the master. He made his first trip to Mysore in 1977.
David is one of only a handful of students to have learned the full Ashtanga system including all of the asana sequences and pranayama as originally taught by K. Pattabhi Jois. He is recognized as one of the world’s foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga.
He teaches in a supportive and compassionate way and makes Ashtanga accessible to all levels of practitioner.
