Congratulations on committing to begin your handstand journey! Let's take a few minutes to go over what to expect over the next 30 days.
This plan is set up in a calendar method, so you’ll start with Day 1, then move on to Day 2, and so on.
Each video is designed with a different purpose and build upon each other, so you will want to go in order.
Please spend an hour or so each day practicing the lesson of the day. Though the length of the videos are around 20 minutes, they are not long enough for you to pick up the skills in that amount of time. You’ll want to dedicate more time to practice the theory and exercises in order to get the maximum benefit.
The first Proficiency Test is half way through the 30 days and will gauge your progress since Day 1. It’s okay if you don’t pass all the tests! The test is simply a way to see where you are and what you may want to work on as you continue through the series.
The second Proficiency Test is at the end of the plan and will show you how well you absorbed the information presented in the series and will let you know if you are ready to move on to the other FlyStrong plans.
This is super important: this series is challenging and you will encounter things you are unable to do on your first, second or tenth try, which is totally normal! This is a journey and will take lots of practice and determination. Just do what you can do each day and TRY the stuff that you can’t. Failing is okay! Continuing to try again is what really matters. With a clear head and set intentions, I know you will get there!
Can't wait to get started!
Dylan grew up in the mountains of Southern California, where at an early age he was into fitness, movement, extreme sports, and nature. At 18, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps, where he served as an aircraft firefighter, and also wrestled for the All-Marine wrestling team. After one tour of duty in the Iraqi war, Dylan was honorably discharged and returned to California to attend university, where he studied anatomy and emergency medicine. Dylan spent eight years working as a paramedic; four years on an ambulance and another four years as a full-time firefighter/paramedic.
Dylan was first introduced to yoga in 2001 as a part of his martial arts training, but it wasn't until 2009 when he made the yoga practice a part of his daily life and started to understand the true journey of the yogi.
Since 2011, Dylan has been teaching yoga. Though a lover of movement, handstands, arm balances and creative sequencing, his focus is the integration of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence to create a space to deepen the inner connection.
In 2015, Dylan gave up his home in California to travel and teach workshops, teacher trainings, festivals, and retreats. He has taught in over 60 countries and more than 400 workshops or events. He is passionate about spreading his love for yoga and helping others in their journey by sharing his journey.
