Dave Larot
David Larot is a Bay Area native who began his practice in 2002. After years of skateboarding and snowboarding, the benefits of yoga led him to realize that he had found the missing link in his active lifestyle. In 2008, David enrolled in the 200-hour teacher-training intensive at Yoga Works SF. Inspired by his mentor, Nikki Estrada, he went on to complete his 500-hour training, and in 2010 decided to take the big leap from his full-time job of ten years with AT&T to put all his energy and focus into teaching and sharing the practice of yoga. Since then, David has built a solid schedule of classes around the Bay Area. Having practiced and trained in various styles, including Iyengar and Ashtanga, David’s classes have evolved into a deep, methodical, and dynamic flow, focusing on the importance of breath and the principles of alignment.
