About David – Yoga Anatomy Presenter

david keil yoga anatomyThis website is simply about delivering yoga anatomy to the yoga community in a simple and understandable way. It has always been about you, the reader understanding the complexity and diversity of our own humanness as well as our anatomy.

Many of you interact with anatomy in two key places. The first is relative to injury, either in a preventative way, or after some type of injury has occurred.
