Greetings Rainbow Warriors,
I’m coming to you from Provence today, and sadly this is my last day here. This American visa situation is really hindering my European travel goals ha. Why can’t we just live in a world without borders, right? One world people. One love, one world, are you with me? But alas, on this yogic path, it’s One day at a time, one breath at a time and by the grace of God go I. It’s all yoga.
I need to exit Shengen now for a month, so I can come back for the month of September, when I’ll be offering a retreat in Sicily, Italy the second week of September, and then offering some workshops and speaking at the DNX Global Digital Nomad Festival in Lisbon at the end of the month. Check my Visionary Lifestyle & Podcast facebook page for details on this events, and check the show notes here for a discount code for the DNX Global conference. As it turns out, being a yoga teacher is one of those jobs you can do on the road while traveling, and boy do I have a hallelujah for that 🙂
SO now about today’s show…
Today’s guest is David Laurey. I really enjoyed this conversation with this passionate and experienced teacher of yoga, true and transformational yoga.
David Lurey is an experienced 500 hour yaga alliance certified yoga teacher.
He was introduced to Yoga in 1996 as a way to tone his body and relieve work related stress. Using those as a foundation for building an Asana practice, the other limbs of Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga began to unfold leading him to the path of teaching transformational Yoga.
David lives in Palma de Mallorca, Spain co-creating courses and trainings to ‘Open Consciousness and Vitality’ with his beloved wife, Mirjam Wagner.
Using various spiritual teachings as guidelines for classes, David takes students through opening and often challenging Asanas while encouraging the magical power of breath and mental stillness to cultivate the true loving nature of the heart. This appears in several styles of Yoga that David shares in his teachings:
Mindful Spirited Vinyasa with attention to the physiology, anatomy and alignment of the poses combined with energetic presence.
AcroYoga for building connection, trust and communication between humans.
Green Yoga as a journey and exploration to connect to the planet, cosmos and all the non-human beings on Earth.
Bhakti Yoga for the Devotional spirit…
David’Bhakti practice takes form mostly in the singing of Kirtan and Mantras but is also connected to acts of kindness and being of service.
In addition to teaching Asana classes, David brings a heartfelt passion for music and singing into all his programs. He has recorded 3 CDs and performed countless events where music, community and singing come together in ecstatic bliss.
I met David at the Barcelona Yoga Conference last summer. I took his class and knew instantly that he has a lot of valuable information to share.I was so happy we got the time to sit and have this conversation, so he could share a fraction of his vast yogic wisdom with you.
he goes in to santosh’a and tapas, which is exactly the yoga I’m called to practice when I look at my visa situation and being forced to leave the Shengen territory. I’m practicing both sides of the two sided coin David mentioned, and you’ll have to listen to the show to get what I mean.
