About the Author
Since a young age, Dylan has always been fascinated with life’s great questions; his own life journey has given him an unusual eye for the beauty and interconnectedness of life, and made him sensitive to the human condition. This has led him on an interesting journey of deepening his understanding of human behavior and spirituality through studying various spiritual texts and seeking out guidance from various teachers around the world.
As a spiritual pilgrim, he has been fortunate to meet many wonderful souls who have inspired and deepened his own practice and shaped his style of teaching. Beyond asana, yoga is a way of life that enables him to continue to reflect, to feel and be present.
Dylan was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga when he turned 30 and instantly fell in love with the method as a meditation in movement; a medicine for his body and mind and it has since become his daily Sadhana. He has always been interested in understanding the interplay between the gross and subtle aspects of the body/mind and feels with Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method, we can learn to understand and harness the energy of these two polarities to find stability and grace - on and off the mat. Since his first class, Dylan has been captivated by the therapeutic aspects of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and approaches his classes from this view point - to help students find their strength and balance in a safe space, whilst connecting to and integrating with the power of the breath and observing/understanding the patters of the mind. A Powerful tool and practice which invites and supports Dylan and his students to find space beyond the veil of the conceptual mind. An invitation to stillness and inner peace.
Dylan started practicing healing at a young age by accident when he started to realize that he was able to channel energy and see and connect with energy and spirits. He started meditation practice at a young age and felt the power and magnitude of stillness as a source of healing and connection to the universe. With a keen interest to focus on the deep interconnection of body and mind, Dylan attended Vipassana meditation guided by the late Mr. S.N. Gorenka and continues to explore this path of meditation practice.
By the “not so little coincidences” in life, Dylan was introduced to Jose Antonio Manchado and instantly resonated with his style of teaching and way of being and is deeply grateful to be a student and learn from his guidance, Reiki and Shindo (Tibetan) healing practices.
Currently Dylan has published his first book, Art of the Storm, which was recently released October 20th 2017. His book was a manifestation of a vision he had whilst he was at Vipassana meditation and brings together a collection of poems, short stories and reflections inspired from meditation, being in nature and yoga. Dylan is working on several other books and projects currently
Giving gratitude to all his teachers, Dylan hopes to share his passion and love of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga; Ashtanga Yoga within the context of Yoga Sutras, meditation and healing to continue to inspire others on the path of healing and being one with life.
