Yoga Asana – Movement – Postures & Breathwork

I teach Yoga Asana, movement & postures and breathwork from a functional perspective. I focus on how your body feels, moves and occupies postures on the mat. My teaching and practice are always breath-led and informed by how we are breathing.

With a background in martial arts and strength and conditioning, I understand the bio-mechanical benefits of Yoga to people who engage in physical pursuits.

Yoga is as much of a workout as a ‘workin’ to paraphrase A.G. Mohan. Beyond the Yoga mat it is a complete mind and body system for living a more integrated and aligned life. Yoga helps us to deal with the challenges that life presents us with. I weave these philosophies and themes throughout my teaching.

David Balfe - Dragn Yoga

I began practicing Yoga in 2013 and over time, having experienced numerous benefits relating to better posture and mental well-being, I was compelled to train as a teacher. In 2019, after 18 months of study with Yogacampus, I graduated as a Yoga Teacher.

Throughout my training, I trained with world-class teachers. With close links to the Krishnamachyra lineage and the Mohans from India. The course blended science, art, philosophy and history, and provided a very broad and detailed training experience. This allowed us to develop our own voice and passion for teaching Yoga.

The importance of Yoga Asana, movement, postures and breathwork is fundamental to Yoga practice. Each posture or Asana has distinct energetic and physical effects on the body and when combined with a series of other postures (also known as a vinyasa), can energise, relax and bring body, breath and mind back into balance. Throughout each practice, I place great emphasis on how you are breathing and incorporate pranayama breathing exercises into each class.

I teach a variety of Yoga styles from strong flowing vinyasa, hot yoga, hatha yoga to restorative yoga nidra. I teach in a variety of settings from public classes, workshops and festivals, to private groups, 1 to 1, in the workplace and on retreat.
