“Find your Balance”

David Lurey, 500 E-RYT, was introduced to Yoga in 1996 as a way to tone his body and relieve work related stress. Using those as a foundation for building an Asana practice, the other limbs of  Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga  began to unfold leading him to the path of teaching transformational Yoga.

David is currently based in Palma de Mallorca, Spain co-creating courses and trainings to ‘Inspire Health and Vitality’ with his beloved wife,  Mirjam Wagner.  Using various spiritual teachings as guidelines for classes, David takes students through opening and often challenging Asanas while encouraging the magical power of breath and mental stillness to cultivate the true loving nature of the heart.  His classes invoke the natural elements in Yoga practice to balance active lifestyles with self-reflection and meditation.

Most recently, David’s teachers include  Aadil Palkhivala  whom David completed the 200 hour level Purna Yoga Training in 2014.  Before that, he has completed a 5 year study with  Eddie Modestini and Nicki Doane, who inspired him to look deeper into the energies of postures while paying very close attention to the details of physical alignment.  Also, his Yoga Teacher certifications from  GreenPath Yoga StudioDavid Swenson, and  It’s Yoga  provide a well rounded background in postures, alignment, adjustments, philosophy and history making each class a unique experience.
David has also participated in a 3 week Iyengar intensive course with  Rajiv and Swati Chanchani     in Dehra Dun, India that has influenced his teaching and application of Yoga in life.  In 2007 David successfully  completed a  Green Yoga Teacher Leadership Program  and in August 2008, David became a certified  Acro-Yoga  Teacher. As the various aspects of Yoga practice are coming together, David teaches Vinyasa Yoga for a connection to the self, AcroYoga for connecting to other humans and Green Yoga as a way to connect more deeply with the planet and cosmos.

David is certified as a 500 hour Experienced – Registered Yoga Teacher by the Yoga Alliance of America.  Since 2000, David has taught extensively around the San Francisco Bay Area at well respected studios like Greenpath Yoga, Yoga Tree San Francisco and The San Francisco Bay Club. During his tenure as Assistant Director of Greenpath Yoga, David co-led the Greenpath 200 hour certified Yoga Teacher Training Program with his good friend and studio director,  Clayton Horton. He co-created a donation based weekly Kirtan gathering that is still happening and has become a respected Yoga community leader in the Bay Area.
