About the series

This month-long plan is the best way for any beginner to learn how to build strength and control so that when you enter a Yoga class, you will feel confident and empowered.

This series consists of 12 unique videos that are designed to build your strength across the four major Strength categories: Core, Straight and Bent Arm, Back and Legs. Each category contains three different workouts, all of which span across the 30 days to engage, develop and strengthen your entire body. NO experience is necessary, so this is ideal for a complete beginner. If you already have a practice, this will help you advance and enhance your existing skills.

This program is the perfect way to establish your own personal practice from the ground up. I will guide you step by step through each pose, posture and movement in order to build confidence and ensure proper form and technique.

instructor Instructor profile

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.

This plan has been an excellent entry point into the practice of yoga, as Dylan’s instructions are accessible and also build a foundation of poses. I look forward to each class and what Dylan has come up with to “cook your core” or get the legs “talking to you.” I can finish the class and feel confident enough to go to a yoga studio with the knowledge of poses and the strength I have gained!

I started my yoga journey about six months ago, and Dylan’s Yoga Strength Basics for Beginners has been a crucial part in my practice. As someone who spends most of her time sitting down, I have always suffered from back pain and poor posture. By practicing every day – and with Dylan’s heartfelt, clear, funny and awesome explanations – I have learned to recruit muscles that I never imagined I had, which has helped in so many ways with my posture. I have not suffered from back pain since. Videos like “Mobility & Movement” are essential to our well-being, and I can’t thank Dylan enough for the positive impact it has in my life. I feel a lot healthier and stronger since I have started this plan. This program has allowed me to “Be My Best Me”, and I can’t wait to further my journey into yoga! Namaste Dylan and Cody!
