Yoga Instruction

Dean began the practice of hatha yoga in 1988 out of curiosity. This curiosity turned into taking a leave of absence from work to live in an ashram and study hatha yoga full time in 1992. After returning from the teaching residency Dean began what has been a continuous weekly teaching practice at the The St. Johnsbury Center for Well Being for the last 23 years.

Over the years as a result of studying with other teachers; Beryl Bender, Jonny Kest, Charles Matkin, Mark Whitwell, David Life & Sharon Gannon, Paul Grilley, Aadil Palkhivala and many others, Dean’s class has evolved into a hybrid of many styles.

The class is physical but not so imposing as to intimidate newcomers to the practice. Dean maintains a daily practice and is studying and evolving both his personal practice and teaching on an ongoing basis.

"In the final analysis, it is wise to remember that in our vision of yoga, as in our vision of all things, we see the world not as it is, but as we are."
