You will learn some interesting drum rhythms with matching dance moves then also have an opportunity to free flow expressively and connect to your own individual rhythm and movement.
Dion and Jelena have both Drummed and Danced professionally on stages all over the world and are excited to bring their passions and knowledge together in this unique offering
If you have your own drum or one that is lying around collecting dust please bring it! We’ll help you dust off the cobwebs and bring it back to life!!!
Dion previously explored different health related careers such as Exercise Physiology/Rehab, Phys Ed
Teaching, Elite Sports Coaching, Personal Training and Remedial Massage Therapy. After his first
week of committed yoga practice over 10 years ago he was totally hooked and quit his other jobs to
explore new ways of movement and connection to self.
Travelling the world extensively and following his other passions of music, surfing and deep cultural
adventures his approach to Yoga has developed through studying with many master
yoga/movement teachers. Most predominantly training extensively with Gwyn Williams, Creator of
ZenThai Shiatsu and movement flow, connecting our Yoga practice to the meridians of Chinese
medicine and the 5 elements of nature.
As an International touring and recording Drummer/Percussionist Dion brings a strong rhythmic
element to his yoga classes (sometimes with live music or at least a well curated playlist!) and a body
and posture element to his Drumming and Dance workshops. His classes are fun and relaxed and he
encourages his students to find fluent healthy ways to move their bodies both on and off the yoga
Dion is also now offering limited Massage Therapy sessions and many other events and workshops.
