The founder of the Omsense International School of Yoga in 1999 and the author of two books - "The Hatha Yoga Handbook" and "Yoga for Surfers," - Mr. David West is a recognized world authority on Yoga helping his students embark on a life-long journey of health and happiness through exercise, concentration, and meditation.
According to Mr. West, "happiness for most of us is rarely attainable." Mr. David West turned to Yoga in India after his studies helped him beat life-crippling Lymes Disease.
Swami Shyam Yogi, a Yoga master, told David, "People in the west have learned life back to front - often concentrating on worldly wealth at the expense of their inner happiness." David absorbed these teachings for a year as his body fought off his illness with Yoga, herbal therapy and a positive mental attitude. The experience changed his attitudes to body, mind and spirit.
In the ten years since recovering from his illness, David has studied the holy science of Hatha Yoga based on the teachings of Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, India.
As part of the ongoing commitment of Sanctuary Resorts to provide stimulating guest experiences through their "Masters in Residence Programs," Mr. David West will be sharing his wisdom of Yoga and meditation through March 4, 2004 at The Balé Sanctuary Spa. During this period, Mr. West will teach the traditional form of Hatha Yoga from the heart of India while offering training of Yogic techniques for relaxation and stress management, power Yoga and Yoga for surfers.
