Dave Kane – Ashtanga Yoga

I discovered Ashtanga Yoga whilst travelling in Thailand in the summer of 2008, beginning
the practice in earnest when I found my teacher Joey Miles, at Ashtanga Yoga Leeds, on
my return from S.E. Asia.

I have been taught the traditional 'Mysore Style' Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system, in accordance with 'Parampara' This is the principle of knowledge based on direct and
practical experience passed in succession from teacher to student, and this is the
foundation for my own teaching.

In 2012, I spent 2 months studying at the Sri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute with R. Sharath Jois in Mysore, India. In 2013 I completed a 200hr Yoga Alliance teacher training in Varkala, India. In 2015 I again spent one month in Mysore studying
with Sharath Jois. I am also truly blessed to study with, and assist, my teacher Joey Miles at Ashtanga Yoga Leeds on a daily basis.

As an acclaimed professional double bassist and composer, I am no stranger to the importance of having a regular and dedicated practice schedule and the resultant
benefits of such a discipline. If you practice a musical instrument everyday, you
will become a better musician. If you practice Yoga everyday,
it may well change your life.


"Dave patiently guides and encourages his students, whatever their level, and helps
them to achieve goals they have previously only dreamed of. A dedicated
practitioner of Ashtanga yoga himself - constantly developing his own practice by
regular tuition both in the UK and in India – Dave uses his unique insight into the
‘yoga journey’ to inform his teaching, challenging and encouraging his students.
Dave is a truly inspirational teacher"! Tim - Leeds

"Having come to ashtanga yoga from the ‘wrong’ side of 55, I have been
amazed at the flexibility and sense of well-being I have gained through
regular practice I could not have achieved this without Dave’s skilful
guidance, patience and encouragement. Every lesson with Dave is like a
new adventure. He always makes the lessons interesting and pitches
the level of challenge so that at the end of the lesson, I always feel I
have achieved more than I considered I was capable of. Not only do I
feel a whole lot fitter than I did a year ago, I am also calmer, more
confident and ready to try new challenges. Thank you, Dave, your
lessons have been life-changing"! Judy - Leeds.
