David Thomas opened one of the first studios solely dedicated to the study of yoga in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He has owned Vital Health Yoga Centre and taught full time for over two decades. David continues to follow the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar today. He studied with the Iyengar family at their institute in Pune, India three times and he remains a general member of the Iyengar Association of Canada. It is not at all wrong to say that David's daily life revolves around yoga.
David's teaching style is very personal. He uses day to day life experiences as touchstones for humour or serious reflection within class. His extensive knowledge of anatomy informs his students during class so that they become self aware of their own postural habits and areas which need awakening. His real gift is that he reads his students' bodies and can pinpoint exactly what his students need to do in order to increase their personal understanding of this ancient practice called yoga.
