David Bowen

David is a longtime staple in the Turks and Caicos yoga community, having practiced and taught yoga for more than 40 years. David's yoga journey began in 1975 in the Bahamas, where he trained in the Sivananda style. From there, he traveled to New York City, India and Japan, where he trained and taught in the Iyengar and Ashtanga styles, and studied in the Classical Hatha yoga traditions and Ayurveda. He returned to the Caribbean in 1998, when he began teaching in TCI.

Ten years ago, we were taking David's classes here at this very studio before it became Retreat — so it's particularly special for us to have him join the Retreat team and continue his teachings in the same space we learned from him.

David's yoga teaching technique is a unique hybrid Vinyasa Yoga style, most recently influenced by Sampoorna Yoga. His classes focus on the trinity principles of correct body postures, mindful meditation and refined breath awareness.
