Many of you might know him from Bali, Hong Kong or other places in Asia where he was based for many years. Originally from the US, he teaches internationally and spreads the knowledge of ashtanga yoga.

Resolution: Completing Primary
Dylan feels this material is drastically under-taught. Although both Introductions to Primary or Intro to Second Series workshops are quite commonly offered, the end of the Primary Series presents interesting challenges and insights. By looking deep into the material, Dylan hopes to inspire new interpretations, techniques and perhaps even meaning. This session will incorporate subtleties of specific vinyasa, bandha integration and aspects of Ashtanga pranayama. We will focus from Marciyasana D to SetuBandhasana. This workshop is recommended for Ashtanga practitioners of all levels.

Dates: Friday 23/3, 17:30 - 20:00

Internal Stillness: Exploring Handbalance, transitions and sitting practices.
Applying the ancient philosophies of yoga sadhana should help to build all of our practices. Dylan explores what many of the great yoga philosophies have in common and how we can apply those teachings, both in sitting meditations as well as in challenging transitions and the alluring art of balancing upon one's hands. This workshop will combine philosophy with physical practice and is open to any and all.

Dates: Saturday 24/3, 11:00 - 13:30

Backbending into Second Series
This workshop will offer techniques for approaching safe, deep and informed backbends. The first phase of Intermediate Series, Nadi Shodana, takes us through a series of worthwhile backbends that lengthen, strengthen and extend the spine. Dylan will offer some anatomical perspectives and applications. Individuals will be free to explore techniques at their own comfort level. Even if dropbacks or the deepest backbends aren't available to you at this moment, the information and practices presented here should help your backbend develop into the future.
