Hi, I’m Dave Ursillo.

I’m a writer, 10-time author and communications specialist who helps self-starters make their stories shine. I believe that self-expression is service, and that words are what move us. I lead creativity workshops and teach yoga. I’ll help you express yourself with soulful authenticity.



Author, Teacher, Yogi.

daveyoga01Yoga is My Moving Meditation,
My Body Prayer.

As a Vinyasa Flow yoga teacher (RYT-200), I teach local classes in Rhode Island and lead workshops in the U.S. and Europe that help students experience wholeness of body, mind and spirit.

By moving on the mat and moving pen on paper, you discover an intuitive, reliable source of creative energy within.
