David’s introduction to Ashtanga came in 1973 when he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, California. In 1975 David and Nancy brought K. Pattabhi Jois to the U.S. for the first time and Swenson was fortunate enough to be there. He then initiated studies directly with the master. Swenson made his first trip to Mysore in 1977 and learned the full Ashtanga system as it was originally taught by K. Pattabhi Jois.

David Swenson is recognized today as one of the worlds foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga.

Mi sono formata a Roma, dove vivo e lavoro, presso il Liceo Artistico e l’Accademia di Belle Arti nel corso di pittura.
Ho iniziato molto presto a lavorare eseguendo decorazioni per la ditta di famiglia: mio padre , Maurizio Brogani, è uno dei più antichi artigiani del ferro battuto a Roma.
Sono specializzata nel ritratto, nelle figure di nudo e nelle copie di quadri antichi ( soprattutto nature morte e figure classiche).
