David Swenson Weekend

THE TEACHER

The journey of yoga began in 1969, when he and his brother Doug practiced in a small park at the end of their street in Houston, Texas, learning from whatever books they could find.

In 1973 David discovered Ashtanga after he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, CA. Later he initiated studies directly with the master after having met K. Pattabhi Jois in 1975.

David is one of only a handful of Westerners to have learned the full Ashtanga system including all of the asana sequences and pranayama as originally taught by K. Pattabhi Jois.
