DT 015: Face the Battlefield with David Danon

David Danon is a multi-faceted yogi with 40 years of practice and over 20 years of teaching experience. In that time, he has founded a clothing line, earned a pilot’s license, built motorcycles, and followed a number of other creative pursuits, perhaps all fueled by his deep questioning of authority and the status quo. After a cancer diagnosis in 2012, he embarked on a journey of research and experimentation into the world of traditional and alternative treatments of cancer, which has recently culminated in the release of his new book, Life, Yoga and Cancer: Lessons From the Battlefield.

In this episode, you’ll hear from David on:

  • What yoga, dharma, and improvisational jazz have in common, and why children have a unique advantage to progress in almost anything
  • Why creativity is overrated when it comes to sequencing, and the value of consistent repetition in both teaching and practice
  • Dealing with hypersensitive students in class, and what David focuses on to get students to either fall in love or stay in love with yoga
  • How he used the tools he learned in yoga to respond to a cancer diagnosis, and how anyone can face a worthy opponent in the battlefield of life with grace
