Meet David Yu

David Yu has studied and practiced yoga for nearly 20 years. He first began exploring the rich traditions of yoga in New York City, practicing at Jivamukti Yoga School NYC, OM Yoga Centre, Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center as well as Go Yoga and Greenhouse Holistic in Brooklyn, NY.

At first fascinated by the principles of alignment in the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga and the philosophical aspects of the practice, David found a spiritual home with Ashtanga and a steady Mysore practice. Drawn to the teaching of Dharma Mittra, David has also taken master classes at the Dharma Yoga Center and with other iconic teachers including K. Pattabhi Jois, Eddie Stern, Tim Feldman and Sharon Gannon, founder of the Jivamukti Method.

After moving to Washington DC in 2013, David studied with Valerie Grange at Buddha B Yoga Studio and his current teacher and mentor Cory Bryant, founder of Yoga Shala Nashville. David completed a 75-hour Jivamukti method foundational teaching training in 2020, teaches the invigorating 1 hour Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior sequence and will complete an additional 300 hours of Jivamukti training in July 2021.
