David Westlake

It's hard to believe sometimes that this is my life.  Teaching yoga, celebrating a cycle class, and sharing interesting ideas with all of you...wow!  I get to do this everyday.  For me, the awe that I feel about where I am and what I do is a testimony to yoga at it's deepest core.  It has led me on a path to places  that exist beyond my wildest dreams.  Yes! If you listen to it's call, yoga will take you on the most wildly authentic journey you will ever go out upon.  It's out there! As an instructor, my most sincere hope is that you might start to see (even if just a small glimpse) of your authentic path glistening before you in one of my classes.  Namaste!
