Explore the fundamentals of vinyasa, asana and internal alignment within a context of the universal dharma of impermanence.
Saturday 12:30 – 17:00
Form – Arm Balance from the Inside-Out 12:30 – 15:00
Creating a solid foundation and activated core will be key to finding balance upon one's hands. Finding balance requires looking deep within. The internal stillness practice can be seen reflected on the physical level through bandha. Not merely muscular, bandha can create the energetic patterning around which all asana revolves. We will explore both fundamental and eccentric arm balance postures, as well as various seated explorations to bring awareness internal. This workshop is open to absolutely everyone.
Emptiness – You do not exist. 15:20 – 17:00
The original teachings of Siddhartha Guatama offer some easily understood and truly transcendent insights. Dylan will unpack these breakthroughs in simple terms. Together, we will question how these teachings can empower our asana practice and our modern lives. This workshop is open to absolutely everyone.
Sunday 12:30 – 17:00
Active Stillness – Inversions 12:30 – 15:00
Bandha engagement offers us a chance to take stillness with us, even when upside-down. By measuring risk and restraint, we can find balance. The clarity of the mind when balancing upside-down might be the most precious benefit. A variety of inversions and preparatory practices will be explored. This workshop is open to absolutely everyone.
Engaging Emptiness 15:20 – 17:00
Dylan's final session will feature philosophy and seated practices. How and why has Emptiness become so revered? How do these perspectives apply to your yoga Sadhana? How does the liberation offered relate to the freedom experienced in yogaasana? Come explore, question, laugh and enjoy!

Dylan Bernstein :
Dylan has been exploring various worlds of yoga for 30 years. His intense curiosity brought him to study and practice worldwide. Dylan teaches on four continents and continues to be influenced by many teachers and diverse traditions. Perhaps his primary inspiration is his inquisitive students. Essentially, Dylan remains a pluralist, believing in various kinds of truth and manners of realization. Dylan sees Krishnamacarya's lineage of bandha-centered vinyasa as completely compatible with the Buddha's philosophical and meditative lineages. Ashtanga coupled with other stillness practices continue to be the bedrock of his life.
