David Life, activist and peacemaker.

David Life: You know I feel that I’m an activist, a peacemaker. Of course I believe that peace has to come first from the inside.

So I think that what I do as a proponent of kindness and compassion toward all beings, awareness of the environment, political activism, this is a foundation for my yoga teaching. It’s not a . . . The physical practices that you do in a yoga class are ways of making the attention more focused and resilient to the ups and downs that one could experience in life.
