I had an amazing time. Because the training was structured, my learning process was much easier. I felt supported in who I am instead of being pushed in a box that I don’t fit. The tools were really useful and well planned. I will recommend it for sure.
This course is well rounded, thought about and the delivery on David’s part was second to none. We have been given strong tools to work with after the course and David has made himself accessible even after he has finished the course which is admirable and shows that he cares about the course content and believes in his product. During the course we have been constantly encouraged and gained confidence everyday. Well done David, you have created a yoga practice that is truly outstanding, I am very proud to be associated and part of it.
I highly recommend the PranaVayu course to anyone considering a 200hr yoga TT. The course is extremely well structured and everything is explained in a very clear and concise manner. No minute is wasted. David Magone is an exquisite teacher and a delightful person to deal with. Truly professional, incredibly knowledgeable and unbelievably patient. David is a great living example of the philosophy that he proclaims and it sets the bar high (in a good way) for those of us who feel inspired by him. Thank you for everything David!
Meet David Magone
David Magone is a dynamic yoga and meditation teacher and the founder of PranaVayu Yoga. He began by studying philosophy at Portland State University and continued to complete a three-year yoga teaching apprenticeship with master yoga teacher Holiday Johnson while studying Vinyasa yoga with “Yogi Bill” Counter in Portland, Oregon. In 2001, David began to synthesize many of his discoveries in philosophy, yoga, and meditation into a unique style of vinyasa yoga called PranaVayu.
In 2003, David relocated to Boston, MA. After teaching in the Boston area for many years, he began formal meditation studies with the Tibetan meditation master Khenpo Migmar Tseten Rinpoche at the Harvard University Buddhist Chaplaincy. Before coming to the U.S., Khenpo Migmar had served as the main Abbot of the Sakya Monastery in Puruwalla India. Due to his academic achievements, Khenpo Migmar was allowed to train directly with His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, one of the greatest meditation masters of the last century and the private Tutor of the 14th Dalai Lama himself.
After studying with Khenpo Migmar for many years, David became one of the first non-Tibetan teachers authorized to teach Mangalam Yantra Yoga. This Buddhist Yoga practice dates from the 10th century A.D. Today, in addition to teaching PranaVayu Yoga and Mangalam Yantra Yoga, David teach Dharma courses on a variety of sutra topics under Khenpo Migmar’s guidance and continue to attend ongoing classes in Vajrayana Buddhism (Highest Yoga Tantra) at the Sakya Center in Harvard Square.
In the hopes of sharing some of what he has learned with others, David regularly teaches PranaVayu yoga classes and workshops all around the world. He also contributes content to the world’s leading Yoga website Gaia.com (Formerly Gaiam TV) and many other mind/body and fitness publications. David has received numerous accolades in the press including “Top 25 teachers in the World” by Travel + Leisure magazine. David has also been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Vogue UK and a variety of other publications.
