David walked into a yoga classroom in 2003 as a tag along with little idea what to expect and was taken with the practice immediately. The eventual transformation in body & personality was startling. Through yoga, a man with little confidence who was utterly mortified by public speaking restored the long forgotten playful, inquisitive, extrovert that he’d been as a child. After developing a strong personal; practice, he was slowly coaxed (dragging kicking and screaming) into a teacher training in 2011 and been teaching ever since. ??A Yoga Alliance certified E-RYT200 with an artist’s open mind to trying new things and a love of constant tinkering with different sequences, his style is best described as a challenging yet playful, eclectic free-style Vinyasa, one that is rarely the same class twice.
David is self-deprecating and silly in the service encouraging students to explore their anatomical quirks and learn which poses suit them best. He has a tendency to use rhyming and alliterative cues that draw on elements of many yoga schools, pop-culture references and a (hopefully) charming wit to help student move beyond their fears, to embrace what works and find strength with themselves. ??When not teaching or practicing yoga, David is an artist, actor, avid rock climber, museum worker and volunteer for arts organization and animal rescues. He lives in Waterbury with his wife Shannon and their two cats
