A Six-month Course of Self-DiscoveryGo Further!- October 2023 through April 2024


To support, guide and uplift practitioners on the journey to becoming experienced, grounded and confident resources of yoga and related practices.


We aim to start on the Full Moon, October 28th, 2023 and finish April 27th, 2024

This year, Further will meet three times per month – two full classes plus a technical workshop.

All meetings and workshops are streamed and invite live participation. They are also recorded and available to Mentees to watch at their convenience.


First meeting is Saturday, October 28th !

All of the other dates will be confirmed and announced at the beginning of the Mentorship. This is because we always make sure to arrange the best dates and times for everyone. In past years, we have always met online on Saturday, around midday GMT. This makes for American mornings, Asian evenings and early afternoon throughout Europe and Africa.

We will do regular class meetings, including discussion and light sitting practices, every other week. This year, there will also be a monthly online technical workshop! So there will usually be 3 classes per month. All classes and workshops are recorded for later viewing as well.

The total cost for all classes, tutelage, private meetings and monthly workshops is $990 USD.

General Course Description

The Further Empowerment Mentorship is a dynamic online course for practitioners and teachers of yoga. We don’t focus on posture nor is this any kind of packaged teacher training.

Instead, we dive deep into genuine yoga traditions including meditation, breathing, scriptural study, Sanskrit basics and self-reflection.

Our primary method is to carefully read through translations of the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali Yoga Sutra. We avoid dogma! Thus, we don’t rely on commentaries nor does Dylan explain what it is supposed to mean. We read for ourselves! As we read, we each resonate with meaningful passages. These lighthouses are usually shared with the whole group as we learn from one another.

Here's what past Further graduates are saying about this dynamic Mentorship!
