About David Keil

David Keil was introduced to yoga in 1989 by his Tai Chi Chuan teacher. Both the Tai Chi and Yoga practice age 17 and massage therapy provided insights into mind-body connections and a specific understanding of the musculoskeletal system. David, instructor of Kinesiology at Miami’s Educating Hands School of Massage from 1999-2003 and Neuromuscular Therapist has helped people reduce their chronic pain patterns. He was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in 1999; in 2001 met John Scott in Penzance. Practising with John was transformational; he had found his teacher. The teacher/student and collaborative colleague relationship continues today; David teaches anatomy for John’s Teacher Training courses. John told David to go to Mysore, India; David arrived in Mysore in 2002 where he studied with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the ‘old’ shala, the last year that the old shala was used for practice. David, authorized in 2004, has returned yearly to Mysore with his wife Gretchen Suarez. They are both Authorized Level 2, grateful for their time in Mysore, meeting Guruji and studying with R. Sharath, his grandson. David's most recent book Functional Anatomy of Yoga - a Guide for Practitioners and Teachers was published in 2014.
