Dylan travels extensively, teaching at workshops, instructor trainings, festivals and retreats. He has taught more than 400 workshops and events in more than 60 countries. He is passionate about spreading his love for yoga and helping others by sharing his journey. In his yoga for desk jobs class, Dylan will instruct you in:
Releasing tightness in the hips, hamstrings, shoulders, neck and back
Relaxing mentally and physically after a long day
Dynamic stretches, neuro-flossing and static holds
Recover This class will show you how to release tension in the chest and upper back, improve the mobility in the shoulders, and open up the leg muscles, which can become extremely tight from long periods of sitting.
Release This full-body restorative class utilizes neural flossing techniques. This is an incredibly effective restorative technique to alleviate compression in the nerves in the hands, wrists, elbows or shoulders that can come from typing at a computer all day. We’ll also work to release tension in the hips and hamstrings, as well as strengthen the ankles and lower back.
Repair This full-body repair class will help increase mobility in the wrists, working our way to the shoulders, chest and back before continuing down the body to the hamstrings, hips and ankles.
Revive These spine lengthening exercises target the spine and gently move it in multiple directions. We’ll work to release tension that can lead to hunching and create space in shoulders and chest to improve posture.
Restore It’s important to set aside time to actively restore the body and mind after a day of accumulating stress and tension. This class will warm up the body dynamically, getting the blood moving and incorporating some wall yoga poses.

This class was the gateway to yoga for me. I was surpriced to find something sport related in creative live - thanks for that! Because of the name "Desk Therapy" I gave the course a try and loved it. The first course was a tad fast and challenging at the beginning but that motivated me and showed me an other side of yoga which deleted all my prejudice. The obvious benefit of "Desk Therapy" was the stress relief after a work day sitting in front of the computer. Dylan is an excellent teacher with very good instructions and tips. Thank you!
