David is one the most experienced Ashtanga teachers in Sweden.
He’s first contact with yoga was back in 1993 while exploring ways to find alternative forms of healing when western medicine and physical therapy failed to heal a foot injury.
A spiritual seeker from his teens, he decided to try out Hatha yoga.
Right away, David felt the deep benefits of asana and meditation practice.
Miraculously, yoga healed him physically, however what blew David away the most, was the deep, sustaining well-being, that in turn, wasn’t fleeting, like other sensorypursuits. Yoga gave a greater sense of clarity, calmness and internal focus more than anything he had previously experienced. Here David’s yoga journey began.
His asana practice has been on and off through the years, but David always kept his seated meditation practice going the entire time.
Early 2006, David took his first Ashtanga Yoga class. From that point on, he has not stopped. When David embarked on his first trip to Mysore, India, in February 2008, practicing with R. Sharath Jois, he delved even deeper into the practice, and fully committed himself to the method. Ever since then, David has been back to India every year to continue his studies and deepen his practice. In January 2011 he had the honor of receiving his Level 1 Authorization to teach from his teacher, R. Sharath Jois.
In Sweden, David teaches and assist alongside his teacher, Laruga Glaser (Certified – Advanced B). When Laruga travels around the world to teach workshops and retreats. David is the one who runs and oversees the Mysore program at Yogayama Östermalm, in Stockholm.
David regular gets invitations to teach internationally and in other Swedish cities.
He also teams up and teach together with Laruga during her workshops and retreats all over the world.
For David it’s a great honor to help hold a space for students from all walks of life, where they can explore who they are, and grow as human beings with the help of this dynamic practice.
He invites all of you who feel inspired by this practice to walk this path with him.
