A 9-to-5 marketing professional with an MBA from London Business School, David considers himself a 24/7 yogi – devoting more of his time and energy to helping people through yoga and sound. David founded The Bow Bungalow during the COVID pandemic to make yoga more accessible to others, whilst creating more job opportunities for other teachers.
Born and raised in California, David has lived, worked and studied in New York, Seoul, Sydney and calls London home for over 14 years. His family heritage comes from hard-working Chinese and Vietnamese immigrants, leading him to apply a high level of dedication and care to his service of others.
His yoga lineage from his yoga teacher Stewart Gilchrist traces back to the founders of modern yoga, where he applies both force & compassion to his teaching to support his students’ learning & development. David is also a gong meditation practitioner, training with Leo Cosendai and the only 200-hr Sound / Naad Meditation course offered in the world.
David believes in supporting the growth in others through encouragement, empathy and humour.
