Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga

Born in 1964, Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga since 1979, starting when he was 14 years old. He initially studied in Hawaii with David Williams, the first person to bring Ashtanga yoga to America. He then studied in India with K. Pattabhi Jois, the main proponent of Ashtanga yoga. Bryan Kest has been teaching yoga since 1985. “My primary objective”, says Kest, “besides turning more and more people on to a healthier, more peaceful lifestyle that continually challenges them to grow, is to teach a system of exercise that fully integrates the body, mind, and spirit. The new trend towards yoga is not surprising, given that the body is limited and the mind is limitless. The combination of body and mind creates an incredibly broad range of fulfillment, including top physical condition and a calm, peaceful, clear mind.”

We welcome internationally acclaimed Power Yoga founder, Bryan Kest, back for his SECOND VISIT to The Yoga Haus in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida for three masterclasses delivering both philosophical teaching and a powerful practice.

Bryan caps off the weekend with his highly requested ‘Long Slow Deep (LSD)” on Saturday afternoon, November 16th. Join us, November 15th and 16th, 2019 when it all goes down!!

Bryan Kest’s Classes are strong, yet well-rounded, simple yet physical practices that will leave every nook and cranny in your body vibrating with vitality. These classes are suitable for ALL levels. While strengthening the physical body, Bryan’s classes also challenge our minds – in the sense where we strengthen the qualities of mind that are most useful, positive and powerful: such as calmness, patience, focus, gentleness, gratitude, humility, and acceptance. At the same time, reducing the qualities of our mind that are harmful and stress-inducing, such as judgement, competitiveness, distraction, reaction, and criticism.

Class Descriptions

Before getting into this well rounded class, Bryan shares his take on Yoga and why he teaches the way he does. Regardless of what school, tradition, or belief system of Yoga you come from, Bryan’s talk is an honest, fresh & simple perspective that is extremely helpful and applicable to life itself. This class is dynamic yet accessible to everyone, and will work you from the inside out.
Bryan Kest’s ‘Power Yoga’ is a complete fitness experience and the ultimate cross-training for yogis and athletes alike. In this intricate asana practice, you’ll work every nook and cranny of your body. Overall wellness is the goal of this power class—expect to find your edge. Every moment in this class will be a chance for you to cultivate the qualities of mind that will help you in all areas of your life.
A deep and potent alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing Hatha yoga classes. Long Slow Deep is a complimentary practice for people who are physically active and desire the benefits of yoga. Holding poses for longer, massaging the deep areas of the hips, groin, hamstrings and shoulders, this class will rinse out the tight spots and leave you with a feeling of deep release through your whole body. If you enjoy Yin Yoga, or just need to slow down a little, this is the practice for you!

“Bryan Kest Power Yoga introduced me to my first yoga experience.  Twenty-two years later, he is still one of my most influential yoga teachers.  Bryan is why I teach yoga today and why I teach yoga in this way.  His conviction to inspire yoga that promotes accessibility, calmness, equanimity and clarity with a sweat drenching sweetness facilitates a profound experience.  Larry and I are deeply honored and we are filled with the utmost of gratitude to share Bryan Kest with The Yoga Haus community during his visit to The Emerald Coast.”
