I actually met David six years ago, but I don’t think he remembers me. I remember him as a weirdo, but I think that says something about me at the time: my judgement was terrible!! (There is further proof of this than me thinking David was weird, trust me 😉
Luckily, we ended up teaching at the same studio where I volunteered to assist his class. My judgement must have been vastly improved by then, because I had not even taken one of his classes…
yup, that turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
Not only have I cried tears of happiness and wonder during his classes, but I deeply believe that assisting his class has made me a more open, loving person. David has a way of holding a room with authority and kindness; with depth and humor. As a teacher myself, I can tell the amount of preparation he puts into his classes, but the delivery is seamless; almost casual.
When I went through a yoga-related loss, David was right there to help me out and get me on track again with support and encouragement, even before I had really registered what was happening.
I really think that there is no reason that David isn’t a nationally known face in the yoga game, except maybe that that is the way he likes it.
I’m in awe of David! Go take his class, now! And maybe I’ll be assisting it!
