Bryan is back in town!
Don’t miss this chance to practice with the creator of Power Yoga!
Long, Slow and Deep
Thursday, 30th of May
18h30 – 21h00
The Long, Slow and Deep class has at the very least a few ostensible objectives. The first is I wanted to give people a deep and potent alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing Hatha yoga classes. I wanted people to know that they have a choice.
There have been so many days in my life when I just didn’t want to do a salutation or a lunge series or even to be that physically active. Yet, I still had the time and ability to practice as well as the desire for all the pleasing benefits of yoga. I still wanted to maintain my practice. I wanted people to see how utterly potent this kind of practice can be even without focusing on strength, endurance or even acquiring much heat. I also wanted people to experience the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving these massive areas (hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc.) more time to release deeper.
This truly is an amazing routine. It’s a paradox. It is by far the most difficult class I teach, yet you don’t really get off your butt the whole class. The challenge here is mostly mental. You are probably going to want to run away from this one, especially in the beginning.
Hang in there, be patient and keep breathing, deeply and fluidly. So dim the lights, warm up the room and enjoy (at least how it leaves you feeling).

BRYAN KEST ABOUT POWER YOGA
Interview with Bryan Kest
Has been practicing yoga since 1979 and has been teaching since 1985. He developed his unique, distinctive style of yoga, Original Power Yoga, in 1979. Over the years, this style, an amazing workout for the body, mind and spirit, has made him a well-known, popular teacher across the country and around the world.
His mainstream popularity is matched by an authentic foundation in the ancient practice of yoga and a long path of development as a yogi (a practitioner of yoga). At age 15, Bryan uprooted from his native Detroit home to make a life change in Hawaii. He moved to live 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 his father introduced him to a physical style of yoga called Ashtanga. This appealed to him immediately, and he soon observed great changes in himself, both physically and mentally. Yoga quickly became his passion, one that would take him to India for a year to study with the great yoga masters of the world, Pattabhi Jois. He has been continuing on his yoga path ever since.
Bryan founded and teaches at two studios in Santa Monica, CA. He also teaches at workshops and retreats around the world; provides an intensive teachers training program; and is featured in his own Warner Brothers video series from 1995, as well as a newer video series and audio CD series. His most recent endeavor is www.PowerYogaonDemand.com. This on-line tool features streaming video of Bryan’s classes in Santa Monica, which are recorded live and streamed to students around the world.
