Having begun his path of yoga 11 years ago, David has experienced profound evolution and transformation of the mind and body.  David received his 200 hour registered yoga teacher training certification and Reiki master training certification from the University of Maryland Center of Integrative Medicine in 2015.  He is now an consistent, daily student of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and presented by his masterful teacher, Jai Dev Singh Khalsa. The practice and discipline of Kundalini Yoga has allowed David to sustain a deep and rooted connection with the creative spirit and has allowed for the realization of his Dharma, his mission in this life.  As a Kundalini Yogi, Hatha Yoga teacher and sound worker, David strives to assist people in developing a greater sense of awareness and how our bodies move and heal in space, as well as facilitating deep meditation and relaxation through his playing of the Gong. This process of cultivating mindful awareness of our consciousness is facilitated through meditation, various breathing exercises (Pranayamas), sacred mantra chanting and slow, controlled and mindful yet powerful movements linked to our deep, conscious breathing.  David's goal as a Yogi is to ignite and guide others in keeping the body strong, youthful, flexible and mobile so that we can all lead a long, fluid and inspired life of freedom and abundance during our time in this body.  The body is the temple that houses the divine essence of the creative consciousness that is Light, Love Intelligence; who we truly are.  The voice is the projection of the light of the mind and the radiance of the soul.  We must have a strong voice and powerful navel acquired through daily spiritual practice (sadhana) to bring this manifestation into reality.  We brush our teeth everyday, why shouldn't we cleanse our mind daily as well?  Make the choice to sustain that temple as a loving home through daily movement, mindful breathing, chanting, self-love and self-care.  Sat Nam.
