ABOUT BRYAN AND POWER YOGA. Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and teaching for over 20 years. Bryan developed his unique, distinctive style of yoga - Original Power yoga - in 1979. Over the years, his style of yoga - an amazing workout for the body, mind, and spirit - has made him a well-known yoga teacher across the country and around the world. Bryan's mainstream popularity is matched by an authentic foundation in the ancient practice of yoga and a long path of development as a yogi (practitioner of yoga).
At age 15, Bryan uprooted from his native Detroit home to live in Hawaii with his father, a doctor, who understood the benefits of yoga. Like many of us, Bryan originally thought yoga was nothing more than strange contortions but that changed when Bryan's father introduced him to a physical style of yoga called Ashtanga. Ashtanga immediately appealed to Bryan and soon he observed changes both physically and mentally. Yoga quickly became his passion - one that would take him to India for a year to study Ashtanga with Pattabhi Jois. Bryan founded four yoga studios in Southern California (Santa Monica and Calabasas). He also teaches yoga classes, workshop, and retreats around the world. Bryan also instructs intensive teacher training programs and is featured in numerous Videos, DVDs and audio CD Series.
Bryan Kest's Power Yoga Master Class (9:30a-12:30p) is a well rounded, flowing asana practice integrating spiritual practice that enhance everyday living. The class is designed to invigorate the body and develop a calm, less reactive state of mind while practicing dynamic, flowing sequences. In Bryan's Power Yoga Master Class students are encouraged to focus on the spiritual process and not the end result. This allows ALL levels of yoga practitioners to enjoy and benefit from the experience.
Long, Slow, Deep Master Class (2p-5p) Bryan had a couple of objectives when he created Long, Slow, Deep. First of all, Bryan wanted to give students a deep and challenging alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing yoga classes. He wanted students to have a choice of yoga practices that may not involve Sun Salutations or Standing Series. Bryan wanted to offer students a practice that is utterly potent without focusing on strength, endurance or even building much heat. Secondly,Bryan wanted students to experience the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving massive areas such as hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc., more time to release and go deeper into poses. This is truly an amazing routine!! It is by FAR the most difficult class Bryan teaches, yet we rarely leave the floor. The challenge of Long, Slow, Deep is mostly primarily mental but hang in there, be patient and keep breathing deeply and fluidly. This class is suited for students of all levels.
