In this workshop we will explore a Hatha Yoga class where we will focus on key alignment points, some fundamental principles of yoga, physical and energetic benefits, and pranayamas (breathing techniques). We will first spend some time warming the major joints of the body as well as the spine, moving slowly and mindfully in and out of postures with plenty of holding and breathing time in the postures. Once we reach peak of the asana (posture) practice, we will be begin to slowly coast down into a deeper meditative Yin yoga practice where we will incorporate the Sacred 8 Yoga Wheels. David created and manufactures the Sacred 8 Yoga Wheels himself.
David will guide you through a beautiful sequence aimed at aligning, recalibrating and elongating your spine, while cracking your heart, hips and shoulders wide open. This will facilitate in release from muscular tension and stress, increased flexibility/mobility in your joints, deeper, relaxed breathing, better posture and overall health and wellness of the body and mind. A healthy spine = A healthy mind. Lastly we'll experience poses that provide a counter stretch to neutralize the spine, allowing for a balanced practice and deeper understanding of the joys of back bending before coming into Savasana. This practice is guaranteed to bring you into a deep connection of body, mind and breath that will facilitate in an enhanced sense of balance and wellness in the Self. This workshop is appropriate for those with beginner to advanced yoga experience.
All attendees will be provided a yoga wheel with option of purchasing one at a discounted rate as well.

Having begun his path of yoga 10 years ago, David has experienced true transformation of his mind and body. David received his 200 hour registered yoga teacher training certification and Reiki master training certification from the University of Maryland Center of Integrative Medicine in 2015. He is now an avid daily student of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and presented by his masterful teacher, Jai Dev Singh Khalsa. The practice and discipline of Kundalini Yoga has allowed David to sustain a deep and rooted connection with his soul/spirit and realize his Dharma, his mission in this life. As a Kundalini Yogi, Hatha Yoga teacher and sound healer, David strives to assist people in developing a greater sense of awareness and how our bodies move and heal in space, as well facilitating deep meditation and relaxation through his playing of the Gong. This process of cultivating mindful awareness of our consciousness is facilitated through meditation, various breathing exercises, sacred mantra chanting and slow, controlled and mindful yet powerful movements linked to our deep breathing. David's goal as a Yogi is to ignite and guide others in keeping the body and voice strong, youthful, flexible and mobile so that we can all lead a long, fluid and inspired life of freedom and abundance during our time in this body. Your body is the temple that houses the divine essence of the creative consciousness that is Light, Love Intelligence. The voice is the projection of the light of the mind and the radiance of the soul. We must have a strong voice and powerful navel acquired through daily spiritual practice to bring this manifestation into reality. We brush our teeth everyday, why shouldn't we cleanse our mind daily as well? Make the choice to sustain that temple as a loving home through daily movement, mindful breathing, chanting, self love and self care.
