The latest video of yoga instructor Dylan Werner is a visual feast for arm balance aficionados. Filmed as a promotion for the luxury health club chain Equinox, The Desert Yogi has top notch production, stunning visual imagery (surrounded by white desert sands against a backdrop mountains), and a beautiful soundtrack. While this is clearly a “don’t try this at home” video, it is awe inspiring to watch Dylan perform these difficult yoga asanas with such skill and grace.
Dylan is an LA-based yoga instructor who now travels the world teaching. He came to yoga from a strong fitness background (wrestling, rock climbing and martial arts), so it’s no surprise that he has adopted a physically demanding yoga practice. In addition to the physical challenge, Dylan finds arm balance poses useful for cultivating mindfulness, overcoming fear, and as tools for accessing something deeper in himself.
