David Pittenger David is a senior student of Parvathi Nanda nath Saraswati (Kirin Mishra). David continues to study directly with Parvathi in philosophy, yoga and Tantric methodology on the path of the Bhairavi, or Tantric adept - Parvathi's most rigorous level of teaching offered to date. David describes the affects of this style of yoga as follows ... "Authentic movement begins when habitual patterns of body and mind are revealed to us. Eventually David found himself turning to the healing benefits of yoga once more; only this time he found a teacher who could take him deep into the realm of self exploration; enabling him to establish a personal practice to support his overall health and deepen his teaching.

YOGASPHERE : Yoga Studio, Newtown, PA David Pittenger David Pittenger was born in Maryland and grew up in North Carolina. He is a practitioner and teacher of the Saraswati River Yoga method. He was trained in Yoga philosophy, mantra, meditation, pranayama and asana by renowned yogini of the Bhairavi Maha Yoga tradition Kirin Mishra. David has also studied asana with several master Iyengar teachers. David's teaching style reflects his own practice that began in 1995 as a way to heal his body from many injuries incurred from a 20-year carrier as a professional Ballet Dancer. David draws from these two worlds of dance and yoga to create a unique yoga class that allows for students to experience a holistic approach to asana. Through careful attention to alignment, long slow warm ups and observance of the subtle movements of breath, body and mind, a pathway is opened to help heal old injuries and prevent new ones. David has been teaching yoga since 1999 and is experienced in teaching students of all levels from therapeutic pre-beginner to advanced. He also teaches workshops in asana dance, partner yoga and offers private yoga instruction. David has a daily practice and is fully dedicated to living a yogic life, and feels his greatest joy and honor in life is being graced to offering these teachings to his community. David continues to study with his teacher Kirin Mishra.
