David is a quiet, passionate, yet grounded old soul that loves yoga. Yoga is a way of life. To him, it’s always been his way of life. He found yoga in his teens, explored it, but his curiously drove him down other paths. After graduating college and working many vacation-less years at Microsoft, he returned to yoga. His never ending need to learn more and share, drove him back to school to get his yoga teacher training certificate.
After 25 years at Microsoft, he left in the summer of 2014 in order to fulfill his personal commitment of taking two years off to relax and de-stress. Well, taking time off doesn’t mean not doing anything!
While teaching yoga, studying and generally enjoying every day, he looked within to see what it is that he is uniquely qualified to contribute to the yoga community. This introspection helped him realize the uniqueness of his own skill set within this moment in time – thus this website was born.
The current technological innovations have spawned an entire plethora of online yoga videos and instruction. Is that good or bad? No one really knows. Time has yet to really prove this out.
David’s take on it is that yoga is an oral tradition. It is an art that is taught through example. Yoga goes deeper than simple exercise, it is an experience. The practice of yoga balances the mind, body and spirit. It’s like singing. You can practice by turning the radio on and singing to yourself. Or, you can get together with someone else who loves to sing songs you love and learn to do it together. The level of feeling is greatly amplified when practicing with someone.
With these principles in mind, he designed the website so that its key function is to help bring people together. Enhanced yoga is built upon those one-on-one experiences. He encourages you to take advantage of this website so you can build your own one-to-one yoga experiences with people close to you!
David currently teaches public classes at ZenRock Fitness in downtown Redmond. All classes are open to the public. He is also available privately either @ ZenRock or in the comfort of your own home.
