David was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in 1999. But it was in 2001 that he met John Scott in Penzance, UK presenting his anatomy workshops for the first time oversees. Two weeks practicing with John was transformational and he realized that he had found his teacher. This began a relationship of both teacher/student as well as a collaborative colleague relationship that continues today. David still teaches anatomy for all of John’s Teacher Training courses.  It was also John who told David to go to Mysore, India the following year, which he did. David arrived in Mysore in 2002 where he had the honor of studying with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the “old” shala. In fact, it was the last year that the old shala was used for practice. David was authorized in 2004 and returned yearly for extended visits to Mysore with his wife Gretchen Suarez. They are both Authorized Level 2 and grateful for their time in Mysore and meeting Guruji and studying with R. Sharath, his grandson over the years.
