Ashtanga Yoga Weekend Workshop with David Swenson

October 12. - 13. 2024

David Swenson began practicing yoga in 1969 at the age of 13. His older brother Doug was his first teacher. They practiced hatha yoga from whatever books they could find. David's 


introduction to Ashtanga came in 1973 when he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, California. 

In 1975 David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff brought K. Pattabhi Jois to the U.S. for the first time and Swenson was fortunate enough to be there. Swenson made his first trip to Mysore in 1977. He is one of a very small number of people that have learned the full Ashtanga system as it was originally taught by K. Pattabhi Jois. David Swenson is recognized today as one of the world’s foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga. David has produced 5 DVD’s and is the author of the highly popular and bestselling yoga book: Ashtanga Yoga “The Practice Manual” that has been printed in 10 different languages and sold internationally.

This workshop is open to everyone who enjoys practicing Ashtanga Yoga and would like to spend some fun time with David and learn useful hints and techniques for tier personal practice.
