David Lopez was born and grew up in Eagle Pass, Texas. He moved to San Antonio and graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice.
David was first introduced to Bikram Yoga in the winter of 2007 while visiting his cousin in Houston, TX. After that first class, he couldn’t believe he had survived it! He felt great! This new feeling inspired David to be healthy. He focused on a healthier lifestyle and credits Bikram Yoga with contributing to his weight loss of over 75 pounds! He wants to try to share this feeling with as many people as possible and decided to become a Bikram yoga teacher and attended teacher training in the Spring of 2011.
David attended a CrossFit certification course in July of 2013. He hopes to continue to lead people towards a healthy and active lifestyle that incorporates yoga and CrossFit.
David enjoys the challenge every time he walks into the hot room or the CrossFit box but loves to relax by enjoying good food with good friends. He feels that it truly is a gift to be able to work and practice with the people at The Union.“All that you need, to have all that you want, will be provided, as if by magic, once you know what you want and do something about it every day.” ~ Jason Mraz
