David Birkhölzer

Creator and former owner of Hope Studio. Originally from Germany, David moved to Glasgow to study web and mobile development. After settling down and extending his stay in Scotland, David went to India to embark on his 500 hours yoga teacher training at the Association for Yoga and Meditation. On his return to Glasgow, he was encouraged by his boss to open his own Yoga Studio. And so he did. After two months of ups and downs, David opened Hope Studio in January 2017.

Slowly and steadily, the studio became known and a lovely and friendly yoga community was established. But in May 2018, David decided it was time to move back to his hometown, Leipzig, to stay closer to his family. The ownership was passed to Camila, who had been teaching in the studio since the early days of Hope Studio.

David’s determination and passion for yoga will never be forgotten by his students and community. He has gifted us with a haven of peace and well being right in the middle of one of the busiest streets of Glasgow. Thank you so much, David!

“May the Long Time Sun
Shine upon you
All love surround you
And the pure light
Within you
Guide your way on”
