Dave Bambach (Byron Bay) recently completed 200 hours of intensive teacher training in Berlin which comprised alignment-based asana true to Inyengar’s Light on Yoga, anatomy, yoga philosophy and pranayama. Dave has also completed 40hrs intensive with Glenn Ceresoli.
Dave has been practicing yoga for 5-6 years and was drawn to the Iyengar style due to its structured approach and it’s accessibility, by use of props, which enabled him to find his way in asana. This style in particular encourages a mindfulness in your practice which also extends to life in general.
Dave’s intention for his teaching is the practice he teaches is challenging, yet enjoyable to all levels, that his students will learn classic yoga asana alignment, and that they experience clear & direct instructions.
Dave’s inspiration to teach was based on the fact that due to his experience of it ‘yoga is too good not to share’!
