Student of the Month March ’16 – David Spindler

Posted on by katy

One of our first students here at Bikram Yoga Temecula, David, 52, has been practicing various forms of yoga for about ten years. He began practicing yoga hoping to ease his lower back pain, brought on by years of construction work. He practiced at several local gyms and yoga studios before he discovered Bikram. Regular Bikram practice, he says, has actually freed him of his lower back pain, and taught him some things about humility and restraint.Dave Spindler

Born in Washington D.C. David lived in Europe as a child, then in Colorado and Wyoming before his parents finally settled in San Diego. After a troubled adolescence, David joined the Marine Corps at a young age and travelled the Pacific. He settled in San Diego when he got out of the service, and started doing construction work. In 1990 he moved to Temecula, and in 1995 he started his own construction business. The recession was a trying period for David’s business, but the recent economic upswing has been good, and it has given David more time to devote to his family and yoga practice. He currently practices at least two to three times a week.

“My goal is to practice every day, strengthening my spine and meditative abilities. I often come to practice stressed and frazzled from my daily life, but I never leave that way. Practicing Bikram Yoga calms and centers me. I feel that the restraint, mental strength, and endurance I’ve gained in practice have helped me immeasurably in my life.” David says with a smile, “My long term aspiration is to be able to hold standing head to knee pose easily and indefinitely.”
“I feel that my yoga practice is come a long way from just seeking pain relief…there is much more than that to be gained. The answers to my everyday problems often come to me during practice. I intend to keep practicing, and learning.”
