What's your background? How did you come across yoga?
I started practicing yoga in 2000, with a group of teachers in France who offered Tibetan-inspired teaching. There I learned the subtle energetic functioning, the energetic logic, the yoga of postures and movements, the work of conscious breathing, the connection to subtle sources. Above all, I connected with the lineage of the Tibetan masters Marpa and Milarepa, with whom I feel both close and guided. In 2012 I embarked on the path of healers, with the completion of a certificate in Kinesiology, Reflexotherapy and Subtle Energetic Healing according to the Alchemist's path.
In 2016 I joined Cat Kabira's Yoga Teacher Training that I completed in Bali, combining shamanism, Vinyasa Yoga and subtle energy.
I then began teaching through retreats and classes around the world. During my travels I activated the memories I carry about original Tantra, and decided to bring back the essence of it here and now.
What does The Tantric Path mean?
Most of the Tantra Classes that are offered today are focused on a goal, a purpose, and very often associated with sexual practices.
Tantra, in its universality, is the connection we have with Life. Inside, and by reflection, outside of us.
This connection always exists, because we are alive, it is the awareness of this connection that we activate through the practices.
This takes many dimensions and levels of consciousness.
It requires to let go the pursuit of goals and objectives.
This is the teaching of the Tibetan Masters.
The sequence of practices: postures, breathing work, focusing of attention, leads us to a greater awareness of our multi-dimensionality, as well as our physical presence, even in the most subtle way.
The Way of Tantra is a path of knowledge and Wisdom for those who wish to embark on a path of humility and truth towards themselves and the world.
What made you want to create this school?
After travelling the world these last 4 years, I have noticed that Yoga and Tantra are sometimes close and sometimes far away from the Sacred that is nested in the heart of Human. I decided to bring back this connection and this teaching that I carry within me. The School of Tantra Yoga is the foundation stone of this.
Who is this training for?
I designed it for all those who are in a process of self truth and inquiry, for all those who wish to embark on the path of self-recognition. I have opened it to beginners embarking on the path of Yoga, with a preparation program over two months prior to the course. The teaching offered by the school is far from being limited to physical practices and their complexity, as it also focuses on the awareness and understanding of what happens during the practices.
Everyone can learn to guide practices and bring people into a field of consciousness. What is important is the awareness we have of our own presence, and how to bring this connection to our students.
This is what is taught in the Yoga Teacher Training Foundation, including the knowledge necessary to ensure the safety and integrity of the students.
This training is also a prerequisite for the future Tantra Teacher Training course offered by the school.
You are a Kinesiologist, how can you relate to Yoga?
Being a therapist has been a key element in my teaching. The knowledge of the emotional, energetic, structural functioning of the human being, the position of the therapist, the ethic, the rightness, are as many criteria that I integrated in my teachings.
You work with the voice, what is the link?
Working with sound and the voice in particular opens doors to sacred spaces. This approach is often caressed and not deeply explored. This is one of the pillars of this teaching.

David Keil was introduced to yoga in 1989 by his Tai Chi Chuan teacher. Both the Tai Chi and Yoga practice at the ripe age of 17 began his research into his own mind-body connections. His search continued through massage therapy where he discovered many insights and affirmations of what he had been exploring and finding on his own through his practices. One of the most important elements was the specific understanding of the musculoskeletal system and how fascinating, beautiful, and amazing the body is on the scientific level.
As an instructor of Kinesiology (the study of movement and musculoskeletal anatomy) at Miami’s Educating Hands School of Massage from 1999-2003, David developed a fun, informal and informative style of teaching, making such a complex and beautiful system accessible and understandable to the average person.
David brings his unique style and ability to make things simple to the yoga world. Because of his passion and desire to share the human body with everyone, he delivers this complex and sometimes frustrating topic in a way that is very accessible and understandable to yoga practitioners.
Over the years David has used his skills as a Neuromuscular Therapist to help people reduce their chronic pain patterns. He often brings this information into his workshops where students are regularly uncovering painful patterns or injuries in their bodies.
