David Swenson, one of the world’s foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga, began practicing at the age of 13 and has been teaching for 40 years. Introduced to Ashtanga in 1973 by David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff, David met K. Pattabhi Jois when he visited the United States for the first time in 1975. He traveled to Mysore, India, in 1977, and became one of a small number of people who learned the entire Ashtanga system, including all asana sequences and pranayama, as it was originally taught by Jois. David is the author of the best-selling Ashtanga Yoga: The Practice Manual.
