Yoga teacher and original creator of Power Yoga
Bryan Kest started practicing yoga when he was 15 years old and has been practicing ever since. A yoga teacher for more than three decades, he is the original creator of Power Yoga, a unique workout for the body, mind, and spirit.
His mainstream popularity is matched by an authentic foundation in the ancient practice of yoga, including a year studying Ashtanga Yoga directly with Pattabhi Jois.
Bryan founded and teaches at two studios in Santa Monica, California, leads workshops and retreats throughout the world, and delivers an intensive teacher training program. In addition to many DVD series and audio CDs, Bryan was also featured in his own Warner Brothers video series.
His most recent endeavor is PowerYoga OnLine, where students from throughout the world can stream Bryan’s classes recorded live in his Santa Monica studio.View Bio Page
