Dean walked away from nine to five living due to discontentment looking for fulfillment, after spending time in the Philippines, and falling in and out of love with Ashtanga yoga, he discovered the Jivamukti style was perfect for me. He then established his own "energy healing method" and after teaching at the Liverpool Yoga Studio, he decided to increase his knowledge and headed back to India, becoming a student again to complete further training courses and a deeper understanding of asanas. He looks forward to the future as part of the Azure Wellness team.
