David Sye

David is of Russian descent; the son of a scientist mother and an international artiste/performer father, Frankie Vaughan.

He began his practice of yoga as a direct result of suffering from ulcerative colitis and a spastic colon.

He discovered Tibetan healers and worked with them, and their healing practices saw that on his return doctors were unable to find the tumours. He felt better than he could ever remember and this completely changed the course of his life. From then on yoga and Tibetan rebirthing became his life’s focus.

A rich and varied history...

In 1990 he moved to Yugoslavia to work as a radio journalist on a non-political radio station, whilst also teaching yoga to classes in Belgrade. Circumstances conspired to the point where he found himself caught up in the middle of the Bosnian war. This resulted in the emergence of his own unique practice…Yogabeats, a style of yoga, born out of an environment where the possibilities of death and the stress of this were always close at hand. He used music to drown out the sound of the conflict, both 'overt' and 'covert'.

On his return it took some perseverance before the British yoga community started to appreciate and accept his radical approach to yoga. Initially in the media they called him the bad boy of yoga, and that he had destroyed 5000 years of yoga tradition, these same groups now invite him to teach across the UK.

In 1997 he met his late teacher, Clara Buck, who was a student of Krishnamacharya and BKS Iyengar. David studied with her to the end of her life in 2004.

A dedication to using yoga for peace, David has taken Yogabeats to war zones. David’s life is now divided between offering revealing breathing and yoga sessions to students and clients all around the world. His excitement and dedication to his work comes from seeing the transformative power of both Yogabeats and revealing breathing to help the individual and in turn their communities and the earth as a whole.
