David Magone is the founder of PranaVayu yoga, a Buddhist inspired school of Vinyasa yoga established in 2001. Magone's classes have been named in Travel + Leisure Magazine's '25 Top Yoga Studios Around the World.' Known as a 'teacher's teacher,' David has been leading teacher training programs since 2005, with hundreds of graduates in the United States and most recently the Middle East. In 2010, David Magone became one of the first western teachers authorized to teach the thousand year old practice of Mangalam Yantra yoga by Harvard University Buddhist chaplain Khenpo Lama Migmar Tseten. Mangalam Yantra yoga is a Tibetan yoga practice originally introduced by the MahaSiddha Virupa in the 10th century AD. Traditionally restricted to members of the Buddhist monastic community, Mangalam Yantra yoga helps students awaken to their innate Buddha nature through a combination of mantra, mudra, Pranayamas, and dynamic physical postures designed to release energetic blockages and obstacles to awakening. David Magone has received a number of accolades in the press with features in Vogue Magazine UK, the Wall Street Journal, Self Magazine, Women's Health, NPR Radio and many other publications. In addition to teaching PranaVayu classes, workshops and trainings worldwide, regularly contributes to the Huffington Post Healthy Living section, Mind Body Green, and other leading national publications.
