DT 015: Face the Battlefield with David Danon

By Henry Winslow, Yoga Student and Teacher

David Danon is a multi-faceted yogi with 40 years of practice and over 20 years of teaching experience. In that time, he has founded a clothing line, earned a pilot’s license, built motorcycles, and followed a number of other creative pursuits, perhaps all fueled by his deep questioning of authority and the status quo. After a cancer diagnosis in 2012, he embarked on a journey of research and experimentation into the world of traditional and alternative treatments of cancer, which has recently culminated in the release of his new book, Life, Yoga and Cancer: Lessons From the Battlefield. In this episode, you’ll hear from David on: What yoga, dharma, and improvisational jazz have in common, and why children have a unique advantage to progress in almost anything Why creativity is overrated when it comes to sequencing, and the value of consistent repetition in both teaching and practice Dealing with hypersensitive students in class, and what David focuses on to get students to either fall in love or stay in love with yoga How he used the tools he learned in yoga to respond to a cancer diagnosis, and how anyone can face a worthy opponent in the battlefield of life with grace Announcements: Sign up for 300-hour Advanced Jared McCann Yoga teacher training this July at Lighthouse Yoga School.
