I went to my first yoga class over 20 years ago and got hooked. I have practiced regularly since – primarily Ashtanga, but also other yoga styles.
I passed the acclaimed Life Centre/British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) teacher training course, having previously studied Ashtanga teacher training with David Swenson in America, and completed the BWY teacher training foundation course in London.
I teach mainly Ashtanga yoga – in classes, workshops, and 1-to-1. Ashtanga is a dynamic & powerful form of yoga, following a set pattern of postures, though I often add in extra ones in my classes. Ashtanga builds up strength, stamina and agility and helps to focus the mind in a moving meditation. I have been practising the first and the second (intermediate) Ashtanga series for many years and have recently begun learning the Advanced A & B (third and fourth series).
I try to teach with knowledge, humility and humour!
“Davy builds on a basic knowledge of the ashtanga sequence allowing everyone to advance at their own pace. New postures are introduced from time to time which keeps the class interesting and challenging. Davy always finds time to give people a little personal attention with a touch of humour which keeps things light hearted and fun.”
“I was in your Ashtanga class this evening at LA Fitness and I felt moved to email you and say thank you because it was wonderful. I haven’t done Ashtanga for years and had forgotten how much I used to love it, and I thought you were an amazing teacher.”
