Dylan had the good fortune to be introduced to yoga and zazen meditation in 1988, at the ripe age of 14 and a half. 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.
Dylan's curiosity has always been sparked by both ancient philosophy and living civilizations. He continues to study movements in Eastern philosophical thought and current events. In 2001, he moved to Asia and has resided there ever since, dabbling in languages and learning from various cultures. During one of the years in India, Dylan was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa and trained to teach. He has taught Mysore-style, led classes, workshops, retreats and trained teachers worldwide. For the last few years, he has kept a base in Hong Kong where he leads a bustling Mysore Program. Additionally, each year finds Dylan offering teachings throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas.
Dylan continues to study yoga and related subjects as well as practicing under the eyes of Ashtanga's more venerable teachers, including Shri K. Pattabhi, Saraswati and Sharath Jois. Many other teachers and other traditions have also influenced him, as have his dynamic and inquisitive students. He is forever indebted to all the teachers, students and fellow practitioners who have helped him along the way.
Ashtanga Vinyasa coupled with pranayama and other sitting practices continue to be the foundations of his understanding and teachings.
