Dylan was fortunate enough to be introduced to yoga and meditation in 1989. These essential tools helped him negotiate the turbulent seas of his teens and twenties as he travelled North America. A lifelong interest in Asian philosophy, culture and poetics brought him to reside in Asia, where he has maintained his home base since 2001. Ashtanga yoga discovered Dylan at the end of his first year in India. He has maintained a daily practice ever since. He has learned immensely both by traveling widely and by living in Vietnam, India and now keeps a base in Hong Kong.
In addition to time spent in Mysore with Shri K Pattabhi, Saraswathi and Sharath Jois, Dylan has been blessed to connect with other dear and brilliant senior teachers from the Ashtanga lineage. Time spent working and residing in the monasteries of Venerable Thích Huyền Diệu has also proven immensely insightful. Dylan regularly teaches on four continents and continues to be influenced by many other teachers and diverse traditions. Perhaps his primary inspiration has become his dynamic and inquisitive students. He is forever indebted to all the teachers, students and fellow practitioners who have helped him along the way.
Dylan has a master’s degree in Buddhist studies, was authorised to teach Ashtanga by the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in 2012 and is EYRT-500 certified by Yoga Alliance. A student of teaching techniques, Dylan has a background in pedagogy and cognitive development. His classes are designed to put students into direct contact with their own true internal teachers. Yoga has never been limited to asana for Dylan and yet, he values the critical role that the physical practice can play in bringing light to one’s whole being. Essentially, Dylan remains a pluralist, believing in many kinds of truth and many manners of realization.
Though entertainment is not his focus in teaching, there is always room for laughter in his classroom. Though the land and conditions around him are often shifting, the practices keep him grounded internally, allowing for stability even when in the midst of change. Ashtanga vinyasa coupled with pranayama and other sitting practices continue to be the foundations of his understanding and teachings.
