To Whom It May Concern:
Mark Brown Programmes is an organization based throughout Scotland and is a service for both young people and adults from tough realities.
Much of our work is done with young people living in care or crisis, with offenders or those who have experienced homelessness.
For the past 6 years we have had the pleasure of working with the inspirational Yoga Master, Mr David Sye of Yoga beats.
David’s passion, energy and ability to engage those who have weathered tough times has become a pivotal part to some of our programmes.
Many of the young people and adults who have worked with David and some who are only experiencing yoga for the first time, have described there time with David as life changing and transformational.
To us, there is no one who can achieve a sense of community in the way that David does and the time, space and conditions that David creates leaves you with a sense of possibility, peace and optimism for life.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
For the last five years, the International Yoga Festival of Italy had the great pleasure to invite Mr. David Sye as a guest teacher in our events in Milano and Rome and Venice.
The commitment for peace and compassion that David Sye supports since many years, is for us a great source of strength to spread the yoga direction in any field we can reach.
His energy and positivity is for us a stimulation to keep our attention high on conflicts and aggressivity, that we wish to cancel from our lives; his example and attitude will trace the path to lead a fitful and real life
Yours in Yoga

Matlock 3 Step Course May 2017
I've just finished the Yogabeats Level 2 training and I'm absolutely buzzing! David is a rare gift of a teacher, who brings through the deep, universal truths of yoga's inner path towards self-knowledge and healing with an authenticity that comes purely from his own experience. He truly is the real deal, walking the walk with every fibre of his being. His passion and experience of building communities, as the foundation of a healthy society, means he has the ability to hold an incredibly safe space, which allowed us to go very deep into our own healing journeys. The mutual support and intimacy of the group was mind-blowing, and indeed the healing power of a loving community is one of the greatest lessons I take away with me from the course.Overall, David's message is of the power of love, and his huge heart, inspiring energy, masterful story-telling and passion for life combine to create a potent healing cocktail and an exhilarating ride that will crack open even the most stubborn of hearts and that will make you howl with laughter and literally jump with joy! I would highly recommend Yogabeats teacher training to anyone who feels a calling to heal themselves and understand themselves and the true spiritual reality of our world, and who loves to have a lot of fun along the way. You will learn so much, make friends for life, be challenged to break stale old patterns and think outside prescribed destructive societal norms, and you will leave feeling inspired to live an authentic life and to share these universal truths with your local community through the power of your own authentic yoga journey.Becky May
Matlock 3 Step Course May 2017
I've just completed Yogabeats Foundation Level 2 with David and it's difficult to express the emotions or indeed put into words how incredible the weekend has been. I'm lucky enough to have completed both level 1 and level 2 with a majority of the same people and I truly believe we will all be connected throughout the rest of our lives. David has brought together a way of uniting people with trust, security, friendship and love. The knowledge that he shares throughout the course is vast and ever expanding on a multitude of ancient and modern techniques in Yoga, anthropologies, philosophy, history, art, music, humour, love... it is so much more than a simple teacher training programme.
Throughout the course I've felt myself grow, not only as a student of yoga, but also as a member of a community, a friend and even as someone looking for answers to some of life's more difficult questions.
I've met some incredible people on the course but I've also met an inspirational teacher that I truly trust in. I can't recommend the course enough.

Yogabeats foundation is unlike any other course I've encountered in many years of yoga training.
It took me on a journey through myself, through truth, and through love.
David's unstoppable enthusiasm for chasing consciousness in all things is wonderfully contagious! Thank god!
David's passionate emphasis on building supportive loving community set the tone for the weekend, Fellow yogis quickly became my family and I worked whilst feeling fully supported by all.
David's insights are incredibly perceptive, I felt so loved, especially during the challenges I experienced.
I cried, laughed, boogied, shook, jumped and whooped my way through this course! My body and brain have been stretched to the max!!! And I feel incredible!!
I feel so connected, inspired and enlightened through David's work.

Hi David,I hope you're enjoying your last few days in India.I just wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely retreat. I had such a wonderful time. I love India anyway, but to add a yoga holiday was just a total treat.As you know I'm not the sort of person to follow and copy, but it's been brilliant having you as my teacher for the past 10 days and have learnt so much from you. I will pick the bits that most resonate with me and mix it into my own pot and see what comes out!I love your teaching and style and most of all your sense of fun and freedom. As a result I've come home fully recharged, totally energised physically, emotionally and spiritually. I'm ready to go!!Thanks for everything.I will forward you some picturesLove and a big hugClaire xx
session at The Laundry
I hope you are well. I just wanted to write you a quick email to say big Thank You for your session at The Laundry yesterday. In a world where just about everyone is a 'yoga teacher' these days , you are a true inspiration ( and incredibly funny ) and it is amazing to be able to experience your teaching. I am going through some transformation at the moment and during the meditation yesterday the cleansing tears just kept coming and coming, which felt so necessary and healing, if not a little bit embarrassing in a room full of people. My heart is full of gratitude for the teachers like you that come my way , when I need it the most.
Once again Thank you .
I have had colitis for a long time but it was dorment, when all of a sudden I started experiencing all the symptoms again and it got so bad I almost could not leave the house. I called David for advice and he made time for me immediately, he told me "you have to prioritise yourself, you are worth it", that already helped. I went to see him and within 5 minutes i had the answer, he was asking me "what is wrong that you are making feel right? ", I realised that what was wrong was so major that I had not seen it before since I was too close to it! During the session I had a lot of insights and i felt supported by the love and patience of David, he gave me space and time and allowed me to see the truth! He told me, " live your truth! " It has not been easy but i have unfolded and i have realized that i can heal myself and others by telling the truth smile emoticon. After 3 months all symptoms have gone and i feel a lot calmer. I have revised some close relationships and i have prioritized myself but with lots if love for others too and i have told the truth to myself and everybody, i'm not scared anymore! I am spirit having a human experience, i'm energy, I'm love. Thank you my lovely guru!
Dynamic example against the Static
I have just started the BWY foundation course and a couple of the students on the course were singing your praises and saying how much they loved your chocolate tequila practice at the yoga show. Also my teacher Mandy Abbott incorporated yoga as a continuous movement to music in our practice this week and she used you as an example. You were the dynamic example against the Static! Very exciting! Just thought you might like to know how very popular you and your style of yoga is! I told them all about all the work you do for the conflict too! J Good luck with the course in Fuerteventura Debsxxx
one of the best weekends I have ever had
I want to thank you David for one of the best weekends I have ever had. I didn't even know whether I was going to come I was so lost in the fucking darkness and had been for at least a week. I have taken so much away from the weekend I feel fucking amazing. Today while washing the dishes I totally slipped into mediation and when i come back around I had an amazing idea I want to become a yoga instructor I want to show people what you showed me! You are truly one of the greatest people the universe has lead me to. I feel like so many doors have appeared in front of me and I can go through them all if I want there are so many realities I can have. I woke up this weekend! X
thanks for the Shamanic session!
I came to the revealing breathing session unsure what to expect. Time was given to explore my truth from different angles. It was possible to break the hold that past events have on my present, to allow the deeper symbolisms to emerge and with David’s help as an interpretative guide, re discover my inner strength. I became reassured that the love we need is within us and all around us. I learned that consciousness precedes everything and how working on fulfilling our own personal journey can have positive effects on all within our awareness. These insights have become imprinted into my energy fields for current and future action. In the days and weeks following I could embrace fluctuations with increasing openness and certainty. The process seems to simplify generations of complexity, allowing recognition of ego driven behaviors in myself and others. I have been able to use this within my personal and work life. My anxieties and insecurities are manageable, I do not have time for inertia as my path becomes clearer and every moment is alive.
Abbey Road Class
"felt compelled to write my experience from your class on Tuesday. The energy I felt was so powerful and the only way I can describe it, is that I felt like a star with the energy particles flowing through my body. Something so beautiful cannot really be defined only experienced. I know people say that they feel more energy after a yoga class, but this was a different kind of energy! It was like I could feel my soul alive and connected."
