Hey there! Thanks for joining me/us here in the DVS. I really hope these practices become powerful tools of self-care for you, and that you keep returning to the ones that offer you the most palpable benefits. The practices I bring to the DVS are recorded in Costa Rica, right next to the rainforest (though I am originally from Australia). You'll likely find my teaching style to be a little more isolation-focus than flow, and this tends to come from my focus on therapeutics (like manual therapy and remedial exercise), which is a direct extension of my degree in Human Biology. My major influences include Cecily (of course), a series of people who you definitely don't know (my pathophysiology, biomechanics and A&P teachers, and my physios in Australia) as well as the findings I make during my own movement explorations.

You can expect a little more physiology and anatomy education within the practices I offer than some of the other, subtler elements of a yoga practice. Thanks again for being part of the DVS and I look forward to working with you here!

  • TFL Targeted Movement Bite

    Taking some time to zoom-in on the TFL, you'll be challenged and you may get a few wonderful cramps, but you'll also likely feel some more freedom after this practice. The TFL is an oft under-appreciated muscle - especially for the walkers and runners amongst us. Also, if you've ever had weird la...

  • Drew's Shoulder Favorites

    Driven by some of Drew's personal injury history with the shoulder, these exercises have been critical in the rehabilitation work that continues post-dislocation. If you're doing ANY hand-balancing or arm-balancing work, this work is a must for your preparation. Blocks will be needed for optimal ...

  • Juice for the Feet & Ankles

    Our feet and ankles do so much for us and they're so commonly trapped in foot-coffins (ie shoes). Break the chains and work on the mobility and function of your foundation - the ankles and feet. Keep an eye out for some fun at the end. A lot of this work really helps to keep the plantar connectiv...

  • Get Things Moving for the Day

    It's a good "roll-outta-bed-and-get-things-ready" type of practice. The plan is to have you ready to take on the day after that - with a little more resilience of the tissues. Come and move with me before you tackle the day.

  • Core Subsystems Movement Bite

    You'll need a ball (tennis ball sized) for this. Within this little package there are a few progressions you can test out. This movement bite takes you through some activities that really highlight the TVA, external and internal obliques, as well as other elements of our core subsystems. This is ...

  • Hamstring Focus

    The hamstrings won't be allowed to escape the work here - where sometimes we might find other areas of our body trying to help out a lot, this time we're going to take our sweet time and use our dedicated attention to really hone in on these hammies. Also, afterwards, let's talk about that standi...

  • Towards Splits

    Working your way (with strength) in the direction of the splits. This practice will get your hamstrings and hip flexors warm and moving. Also, there's a fun little thing at the height of the practice to do with floating hands. Make sure you have fun with it 😉.

  • Overhaul How Your Neck Feels

    We could all use a little more durability of our necks. We often keep them moving in pretty straight lines - so this practice will take you out of that and into movements we don't often do - and it'll put them against gravity for load. Dosing this videos a couple of times a week is just what the...

  • Hip Internal Rotation Compilation

    One of our most needed movements is internal rotation at the hip -because it's not so an action we frequently train in many movement styles. Part of the benefit here though is that working on IR of the hip often produces downstream benefits to the other movement capabilities of
    the hip too.

  • Get Ready to Take a Hike

    This practice preps a few key components for walking. If you ever feel a bit yuck after walking or you get a sore back from walking up a hill, this practice has something to offer you. Do it before you go for a walk and you'll likely feel better during and after your walk.

  • Some Gentleness to Ease into your Day

    With half an hour, sometimes you may not want to get into the hard, sweaty work and instead you want to move gently. If this is you today, give this practice a try. Bring a bolster or blankets and some blocks.

  • Reinvent the Wheel

    Specifically working on shoulder flexion, spinal extension and hip extension, in isolation first before working our way towards integration. You'll be best served by using a few bolsters (or a stack of blankets), a couple of blocks and a strap or belt. Not too long of a practice but still builds ...
