Workshop Program

How Ashtanga Works

Saturday, April 29th, 2023

Nişantaşi YogaŞala Studio 12:00-14:30

Look, Ashtanga works. If it didn't work, it wouldn't be the most practiced series of asanas in the whole history of Earth. So it definitely works in some ways... but how? And how can we allow Ashtanga to work best for us?
Dylan has been practicing Ashtanga daily for almost 20 years. It will be his delight to share tips, techniques and guidance about how to make this practice serve you to the highest degree. We'll explore real bandha applications, breath-patterned movements, fundamentals of alignment, jump-throughs, drop-backs, drishti and the importance of Patanjali within our physical practice.
This workshop will be a mix of breathing, asana, vinyasa and some detailed instructions. Open to absolutely all!

Workshop Price: 650TL

The Ancient Art of Adjustments

It's never been more important to stay aligned and heading in the proper direction! Not only for our own safety and depth, we must also learn to recognize and help our fellow yogis. So many are practicing online these days... Most could benefit from live, human assistance. So let's take the rare chance to develop our eyes, hands and voice in order to be of service to all.

Dylan Bernstein

Dylan was fortunate enough to be introduced to yoga and meditation in 1989. These essential tools helped him negotiate the turbulent seas of his teens and twenties as he travelled North America. A lifelong interest in Asian philosophy, culture and poetics brought him to reside in Asia, where he has maintained his home base since 2001. Ashtanga yoga discovered Dylan at the end of his first year in India. He has maintained a daily practice ever since. He has learned immensely both by traveling widely and by living in Vietnam, India and now keeps a base in Hong Kong.
In addition to time spent in Mysore with Shri K Pattabhi, Saraswathi and Sharath Jois, Dylan has been blessed to connect with other dear and brilliant senior teachers from the Ashtanga lineage. Time spent working and residing in the monasteries of Venerable Thích Huyền Diệu has also proven immensely insightful. Dylan regularly teaches on four continents and continues to be influenced by many other teachers and diverse traditions. Perhaps his primary inspiration has become his dynamic and inquisitive students. He is forever indebted to all the teachers, students and fellow practitioners who have helped him along the way.
Dylan has a master’s degree in Buddhist studies, was authorized to teach Ashtanga by the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in 2012 and is EYRT-500 certified by Yoga Alliance. 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 asana 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 realization.
Though entertainment is not his focus in teaching, there is always room for laughter in his classroom. Though the land and conditions around him are often shifting, the practices keep him grounded
