I officially became a minister out of a natural flow with my longtime students, many of whom had asked me to officiate weddings and other significant occasions. It is an honor for me to share these special moments and feels very much like a continuation of our yoga relationship and something similar to the traditional tantric practice of “kula”--intentional community. I am happy to discuss your special needs are and to create that ceremony or service specifically for you.
"In the face of all the organizational + planning challenges that can come with hosting a wedding celebration, Ryan + I felt beyond grateful for David‘s ownership of the ceremony. We trusted that he would host a ceremony that was both unique + authentic to our partnership ... he delivered all this + more. We couldn’t have expected the magic that would unfold, and will never forget the beautiful words + experience he created for our loved ones + us on such an unforgettable day. Thank you, David!”
