"David Moreno is one of the most knowledgeable, fun, artistic, and sweet-hearted teachers that I know. If you want your body to shine and your heart to laugh, then David Moreno is your guide." - John Friend, Founder of Anusara Yoga
"If you look at the essence of yoga as a spiritual practice, the ultimate goal is not to have a tight gluts and fab abs", said David Moreno, the yoga director at Yoga Mandala Studio in Berkeley, Calif... Rather, he said, it is "to align with essential nature that goes beyond the confines of your body." Yoga masters in India, he noted, are "not skinny blond aerobics bunnies." Mr. Moreno said he suspects that most exercise instructors who meld mindfulness and cardiovascular exercise lack the sort of nuanced understanding of yoga philosophy to recognize the inherent contradiction. "If you really understand yoga, you know the physical practice is a minute part of the total practice," he said. "You don't take your abs with you when you die." - New York Times - June 28, 2005.
