David began his journey of Yoga in 1969 when he and his brother Doug practiced in a small park at the end of their street in Houston, Texas. There were few sources for yoga at that time so they practiced from whatever books they could find. In 1973, David discovered Ashtanga after he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, CA. In 1975, David and Nancy brought Sri K Pattabhi Jois to the US for the first time and he was fortunate enough to be there. 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 Westerners to have learned the full Ashtanga system, including all of the asana sequences and pranayama as originally taught by K Pattabhi Jois. Today, David is recognised as one of the world's foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga. He tirelessly travels year round to teach and offer workshops. His courses are presented in a supportive and compassionate fashion, making it accessible to all levels of practitioner to participate.
