Dave Whelan came to yoga through a combination of stress and injury. Stressed while putting in hours of study for a graduate degree a friend recommended yoga. This also happened to coincide with a period of time when he was also trying to rehabilitate from a recent rugby injury and an old football hip injury. His friend's recommendation was timely. Not only did Dave enjoy that first introduction class but he attended weekly from that point on, and when he went to work in the U.S. he continued attending regular classes and workshops. On his return to Ireland in 2006 he enrolled on the fitness instruction course with Litton Lane. He received an ITEC Diploma in Fitness Instruction then a Powerhouse Pilates Mat Level I and II with Susan Church's Centre Studios. In 2008 he qualified on the 200hr Yoga Teacher and Therapy course with the Elbowroom. He has attended the ACSM Certified Personal Trainer course delivered by Litton Lane (2011) and is currently undertaking the Advanced Yoga Teacher Training to the 500hr. level through the Yoga Room in Dublin. In 2010 Dave completed the Outdoor Activity Course at Delphi Adventure Centre where he trained in Leadership, Remote Emergency Care, Rock Climbing, Kayaking and Mountaineering. 

He is also interested in Natural Movement Techniques, Kiniesiology, Wholefood-based Nutrition, and Somatic Movement
