Drew, in his 16 years of teaching, has seen “yoga” being used & abused as a tool of deconstructionism and now only teaches a very clean and clear form of “Heathen hatha yoga” that is void of this deconstructionism, usual dogma, and over the top selfish-self-realisation preaching that does nothing for the student/practitioner nor the society they live in. It is our social responsibilities that actually give our lives meaning… the rest is just empty bellybutton gazing, deconstructionism and old asiatic dogma! Drew focusses his classes strictly on the practical and physical and leaves his students to walk their own, not just private but sacred, spiritual path:) But we all must walk the path, there are no express lanes to understanding the body and the mind.  **Remember you cannot consume your way to consciousness.** So forget the idea that this or that plant or drug can get you anything but inebriated. They only help the symptoms of an imbalance. They will not correct the imbalance or cure it. We must all walk the path step by step… so practice, practice, practice!

Basic Yoga Workshop: is a mixture of practical and theoretical hatha yoga. With attention to classical hatha yoga alignment (practical) and understanding asana as a ancient & sacred geometry of the body (theoretical).

Drew follows the strengthening and stretching opposite and equal, 50/50, simoltaniously and always the same concept. Moving with strength and flexibility to protect the joints… as opposed to inertia and gravity which can damage the cartilage in the joints.

The flow of Drew’s class is within each asana, from command to command… as opposed to from asana to asana with little to no alignment or commands.  

Drew teaches that a complete hatha yoga class must move the spine left, right, forward, backward, create full traction of the spine and twist the spine both left and right.

Drew teaches when we twist the spine we do not bend the spine and when we bend the spine we do not twist it. although some arching of the spine is acceptable.

Drew firmly distinguishes between bending at the hip and folding at the navel. Drew prefers the engaged thigh and locked knee in the standing series, not even a micro-bend, so the knee has no lateral movement… as well as numerous other precise hatha perspectives and alinement commands.  

~The class begins with pranayama breathing to oxygenate and detoxify the body of carbon dioxide. As well as to gently open and warm the body.

~Then moves into sun salutations and other light more restorative type of asana, again to warm the body but also to allow Drew to see what the students require of the class.

 ~Then some trust building with partner stretching and also a basic introduction to Therapeutic Flying (aka: Acroyoga)  Drew offers both the active and the original restorative versions.

 ~Then some simple, basic but deeper hip and thoracic spine opening asana which moves directly into an intermediate “flow” class. The flow is within each asana, not from asana to asana.

 ~The class ends with a quick kapalabhati cleansing breath and strengthening the abdominals, pelvic wall and diaphragm.

~Then the class floats into a final shavasana:)

~Drew has become well known for his inspirational yoga classes and what he calls, “Mind Triggers”. These are phrases, spoken amongst the asana alignment commands in a certain way, intended to spark a shift in consciousness, mindfulness & awareness. Such as: “The consciousness is only rising because we are lifting it”

“We are 100% responsible and liable for our actions, reactions, inactions and even our interactions. The century of the victim must end, because victims only make more victims.”

“You are mostly made of water, water is not rigid or tight is it? No its not. Then what makes the body rigid and tight? The mind. How do you release the minds grip over your body? Through the breath, in through the nose, out through the nose, every breathe taking you deeper into a state of active meditation. Once you reach a deep state of active meditation this yoga class will go by like a beautiful little dream”

“You come here to be reminded of what you already know. We can give you nothing. Why? Because you have everything already. All I can teach you is how to access that which you have already been given. Once you learn how to access it, you must use it”

“You are floating in a sea of prana, life-force, oxygen, energy. All you have to do is absorb it. Like the endless energy from the sun and below our feet (geothermal energy) we are bathed in free energy. We have everything… all we must learn is how to absorb it. Only then will we truly know freedom”

Strength and flexibility, opposite equal, 50/50, simultaneously and always the same. Like love & respect, one is no good without the other”

“What is love? Love is compassionate actions”

“Never let your ideology overtake your humanity”

“You are learning how to access your own pharmacy, leaning how to milk your own endocrine system, also known as your chakra system. This system, endocrine/chakras system, is very susceptible to radiation and the over 90 thousand synthetic petrochemical-chemicals that pervade our lives. These petrochemical-chemicals all have endocrine/chakra disrupting factors and thus mess with these control valves of your entire body.”

“You must have Love & Respect. One is only half as good without the other”
