David began practicing yoga in 1993 though Yoga Works in Santa Monica. He was a student of Ashtanga under Maty Ezarty and Iyengar under Erich Schiffmann, and has studied with many other masters worldwide. David came to Yoga Works with an injury that was not responding to physical therapy. Within three months of consistent practice, he began to see a noticeable difference in his physical and mental ability as his injury began to heal. Since then, yoga has been a core component of his life.
David was the owner of, and teacher at, Studio 3 Yoga in Upland for 11 years. He has trained hundreds of students through his Yoga Alliance Accredited Teacher Training program, as well as personally mentored many others. After the Covid-19 lockdown, he retired from running the studio to teach private lessons and small groups, specializing in Yoga for Holistic Healing to reduce stress, anxiety, sciatica and minor injuries.

David’s personal practice includes the Ashtānga Primary Series and a daily meditation practice and Yoga Sūtras study.
“The study and practice of yoga has no ending. Yoga is patient and will be waiting for you whenever you decide to begin this journey.”
