A talented Artist and Tradie of over 20 years, Davids yoga journey began in 2009 as a remedy to years of sciatic pain. This lead him to look at all areas of his life in particular his lifestyle and dietary choices, Yoga sparked him to study Meditation and Somatic Movement which was really the launching platform for his Yoga Teacher Training immersion in Thailand. The 30 day intensive had a profound effect accelerating his energy and wellness to levels he had never experienced. Deciding there was no going back, David joined Zenko Yoga on his return to continue the momentum and soon grew a following amongst the community as a heart felt tribe member which lead him to be invited to guest teach a class one day. The rest is history as the class feedback created a Zenko teacher within weeks.
David believes our life experience is directly related to what we choose to practice each day. Using the tools that yoga provides, everyday becomes another opportunity to direct energy towards our greatest life. He enjoys creating a safe, grounded atmosphere for students to explore and deepen their own practice. His soothing voice and grounded energy makes each class a deep experience and connection to self, not to be missed.
