CIYT, (Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher)

Hello, I am DAVID YEARWOOD, owner of Portland Yoga Studio.  I am a Certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor at the Intermediate Junior II certification level. I have practiced Iyengar Yoga for 30 years and taught for 27. My Primary teachers along this path have been Lois Steinberg and Mary Dunn, both world renowned Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers.  I also bring creative disciplines and experiences to my approach from a background of deep study in Creative writing, Classical Upright Bass Performance, Theater Production, and perhaps less obviously connected, though absolutely connected, all branches of residential painting (haha! we can talk about that sometime!).  I aim to be supportive, direct, light-hearted and insightful.  I wish to serve others by sharing my practice, devotion, my study, as well as my own limitations with honesty and positivity. I hope every student may leave class with clear work to do from clear work that they've done. I hope they may leave with some of the tranquility and confidence that comes from relating deeply with oneself and the many learning processes of Yoga.
