After returning to Canada from his transformational experiences studying Buddhism in Japan, living in an Ashram in India for ten months of intensive yoga training, plus years of wandering around exploring ancient cultures, David continues to share his 47 years of experience in Chakra Yoga with others.
When travelling to Egypt David discovered how richly immersed in yoga the early Egyptians had been. Also having experimented with pyramid structures as meditation tools for a decade at that point, he realized the connection and this became the seed ofthe Pyramid Yoga Center
Following a number of years teaching solo, in 1996 David and his soul-friend and partner at the time, Marina Halleran founded the successful Chakra Yoga Center in Victoria Canada. Offering unique teachings of Yoga as they are traditionally transmitted in the East, and bridging that with modern science, the Chakra Yoga Center flourished, inspiring and enriching the lives of an open and supportive Western audience.

On the Summer Solstice of 2008 another dream of creating a sustainable community and lifestyle project manifested itself in the off beat shores of Port Barton, Palawan, Philippines when David lay the foundation stone of Chakra Yoga Center which continues to offer Teachers Training and other retreats(link) as in Thailand.
