20 Mar Welcome Friends!
Hi Everyone 🤗
I’m David and I’m a yoga teacher in Austin Texas.
As a student of yoga for the past 15 years, I’ve witnessed this amazing practice completely transform the experience of my life. I feel more physically vibrant and alive than I ever have, but more than that, yoga has expanded my capacity to love myself, and to love others, and to feel more connected to the adventure of being alive. As a teacher, it’s my passion to share my own experience, and the wisdom and love of my teachers, with you, and with students of all levels, and all backgrounds.
It was only a little over 3 years ago that I decided to leave a successful career as an electrical engineer in aerospace and teach yoga full time. When I announced this decision to family and friends, the looks on their faces were… lets just say, surprised. 😳 Honestly I think they thought I was nuts! But always knew that engineering wasn’t really my calling. You can be wildly successful at something in the eyes of the world, yet feel hollow and empty inside. Our intuition speaks truth, and I felt a growing intuitive awareness of where my path was leading.
And so I left my suit and tie in Northern Virginia, and I put on my Buddha pants in Austin, TX. 😂 Seriously though, leaving behind an identity of success, financial security and comfort, and starting over, was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Turns out though, it was also one of the best.
I now wake up everyday believing that yoga can change the world. It can increase love, decrease suffering, and make this world a more sane, kind and beautiful place to live. The teachings of yoga help us reconnect with inspiration, creativity, curiosity and compassion. We rediscover the truth of who we really are, and what we’re capable of. We rediscover our connection to each other, and to the natural world. What higher calling is there?
It’s my joy to share this message everyday with my students in the classroom, but I’ve longed for a way to help you stay connected with your practice while you’re at home or on the road. And so now, after 2 years of planning and creating, I’m launching a new website, YouTube channel, and monthly newsletter!
The website & YouTube channel will include all sorts of fun 15-30 minute yoga flows, but it will be much more than that. The content will help you understand and apply the ancient wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras – from postures, pranayama and philosophy, to mantra, mindfulness and meditation. The website and YouTube content will be a holistic exploration of Self, and I’m so excited to share it all with you!
And so I’m inviting you to go to my YouTube channel and take one of the flow classes. Go to the blog section of my website and learn a new mantra and sing along with me. Or check out one of the philosophy talks. If you like what you find please click the “contact” link and sign up for my newsletter and subscribe to the YouTube channel. And please leave comments. I’d love hear what you think! 🤗❤️✨
So that’s the big news. New website, new YouTube channel, and lots of meaningful content to help us wake up and live the life that we were meant to live – more joy & play, more connection, more LOVE. ❤️✨❤️✨
