!Energetics! - pranayama and practices from the Hatha Yoga Pradipika

special program online 

Exploring the practice and teaching of prana within Ashtanga and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

The Energetics course will focus on grounding students in the long traditions of Hatha Yoga. We'll deeply understand bandha, mudra and pranayama as well as asana. 

Ashtanga (Vinyasa) will form the foundation of our practices. So our general approach will be to examine some practices from Hatha Yoga Pradipika, practice them in isolation and then integrate them within our daily Ashtanga sadhana.

We will learn the basics of pranayama as well as the pranayama sequence taught by Patthabi Jois. Students may expect specific focus on Nadi Shodhana, Moola Bandha, Uddiyana Bandha, Kapalabhati, Bhastrika, Bhramari, Nauli, etc.

Each online class will feature a mix of dissecting the Pradipika, sitting practices and asana - vinyasa work. If a student has to miss a session, they will be able to download the recording and catch up in their own time.

It is possible to study all classes on-demand (download and watch at your own preferred time).

Dylan is delighted to reach out to yoga practitioners across the globe. He has helped to build bustling, supportive and ongoing Mysore communities in Hong Kong, Istanbul and Bali. In addition to running stable Ashtanga programs, he has taught workshops and high-level immersions in dozens of locations worldwide. 


Dylan had the good fortune to be introduced to yoga and zazen meditation in 1988, at the ripe age of 14. Since then, he has called upon the practices to engage the body, still the mind and seek more subtle expressions of self. Though the soil and conditions around him are often shifting, the practices keep him grounded internally, allowing for stability even when in the midst of change.


A lifelong interest in Asian philosophy, culture and poetics brought him to reside throughout Asia, where he has maintained his home base since 2001. He has learned immensely both by travelling widely and by living in Vietnam, India, Bali and Hong Kong. In addition to time spent in Mysore with Shri K Pattabhi Jois, Saraswati and Sharath Jois, Dylan has been blessed to connect with many other dear senior teachers. Time spent working and residing in the monasteries of Venerable Thích Huyền Diệu has also proven immensely insightful.


Dylan holds a Master’s Degree in Buddhist Studies, has been authorised to teach Ashtanga by the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute and even has the highest certification available from Yoga Alliance stashed away in a drawer somewhere.


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 āsana 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 realisation. Though entertainment is not his focus in teaching, there is always room for laughter in his classroom.  Ashtanga Vinyasa coupled with pranayama and other sitting practices continue to be the foundations of his understanding and teachings.
