Seeking a physical training alternative to traditional sports, weight lifting and aerobics, David came upon certified Baptiste teacher, Michele Fisher, at Mystic Power Yoga studio in Hazleton, PA. He was blown away by how well Michele combined a challenging physical practice with an ability to inspire him to come out of his comfort zone and grow, both physically and mentally, in all aspects of his life. Life, on and off the mat, is now more powerful for him, with an improving physical health and a more focused mental awareness that enables enriched interactions with family and friends. It also permits him to run a successful ophthalmology practice, together with his best friend and co-owner and their 22 dedicated employees, in Allentown, PA. David credits the philosophy of Baron Baptiste for inspiring him to live life more passionately. It is this enrichment of life that he wishes to reflect and share with others in his classes to build a stronger community. David has completed Level One, Level Two and The Art of Assisting teacher trainings with Baron Baptiste and seeks to continue to study with him by attending Level Three teacher training in late 2012.
