Wisdom of the Body Teana David

Téana David is committed to nurturing the wisdom of the body. She is the Director of Pilates Education at David Barton Gym Astor Place in New York City, where she teaches one-on-one apparatus sessions, mat classes, and leads Pilates teacher training courses. Like her mentor, Joseph Pilates, she was a competitive gymnast growing up and studied many dance disciplines including ballet, tap and modern. Téana is an advanced Yoga practitioner of 18 years, is certified in Thai Massage, and recently completed a live-out Herbal Medicine apprenticeship with Susun Weed in the Wise Woman Tradition. She holds an MFA from the Buddhist-inspired Naropa University where she studied contemporary performance techniques with an emphasis in Somatic Movement. Téana's Pilates certification is in the lineage of Pilates elder Carola Trier and augmented by Irene Dowd's comprehensive Kinesthetic Anatomy course.
