I didn’t understand the importance of health and fitness until my freshman year of high school. Once I set a goal for myself and kept accomplishing my fitness goals, I began to change my attitude towards my body and the way I ate. To me, hitting the gym and fitness classes are not about getting down to a certain number on the scale and looking a certain way. It’s about setting goals and challenging yourself, gaining confidence, and creating a better healthier you and I want to share this with everyone I come across!
After studying and practicing yoga since 2008 Dave received his yoga teachers certificate in 2013 so that he could help share yoga with the world. He is inspired by the styles of Kurt Johnsen and Chrissy Carter, who recognized that the compassion and inner spirit yoga produces are as important as the strength it cultivates. Because of the strong links to Kurt Johnsen he did the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at American Power Yoga (APY) in Dallas Texas taught by Kurt and Jayme Bushmiaer.
Quote from Dave: “The combination of challenge and compassion I find in yoga has always enthralled me. Yoga makes us physically stronger but at the same time develops mental control to calm us in turbulent times. I combine a unique blend of Tai Chi, Chi Gung, Flow Yoga, Philosophy and Fun! My goal is to offer poses to all levels can be customized in a class to so the intensity you need. My practice and teaching is geared to developing body, mind, and spirit.”
