David Curtis – Teacher Profile
David Curtis (500RYT) currently leads the 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training Programme at The Ananta Yoga Studios, Wicklow, Ireland and runs regular weekly classes and weekend workshops at the studios.
Dave has been leading Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Courses since 2006 throughout Ireland and brings a wealth of many years personal training, practice and teaching experience to his trainings. His courses are well structured and professionally run and have earned him a reputation of excellence in Yoga Teacher Training in Ireland.
David began a disciplined daily practice of yoga nearly twenty years ago, when living in San Francisco and looking for an art that would stimulate his entire being. As an athlete, he was attracted to the dynamic practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa and was inspired by the discipline it takes to practice this method effectively. Having been a Personal trainer and Health club manager for a decade it was a shock to find a discipline so physical and yet designed to transcend the ego rather than pamper it.
David’s main influences back then were the founders of Yogaworks in LA, Senior Ashtanga teachers Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty under whom he studied with daily for over two years.
He has also studied extensively in India, Australia and the U.S under various Senior teachers in both the Ashtanga and Iyengar Methods.
David is currently under the direct guidance of the founder of Shadow Yoga and Nrtta Sadhana, Zhander Natanaga (Shandor Remete) and his wife Emma Balnaves. He is one of a small number of teachers worldwide with authorisation to teach this method.
David is also a certified Somatic Movement Educator (SME) through the International Institute of Somatic Movement Education based in Tamil Nadu, South India. SME is a neuromuscular re-education system that facilitates sensory- motor learning to gain greater voluntary control of the physiological process resulting in freedom of ease and agility of movement.
David prostrates in gratitude to all his teachers, past and present. Any true knowledge he can pass on comes directly from their guidance, any mistakes he makes are purely his own. Om Namah Shiva
