Orientation/Power Yoga class:
This class is part lecture, part asana practice. Bryan starts by explaining the objective of Power Yoga, as well as the principles of the practice. Students are encouraged to attend this class because it is the foundation of the entire weekend.
Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga Class is a well-rounded flowing asana practice integrating mental practices that enhance everyday living. The class is intended to invigorate your body and help you practice developing a calm, less reactive state of mind with dynamic flowing routines. In a Power Yoga class, you are encouraged to focus on the process and not the end result. This allows ALL levels of yoga practitioners to enjoy and benefit from the class.
Long, slow & Deep:
Experience the benefits of holding your postures a little longer. The Long, Slow & Deep class is designed to give your hamstrings, hips & shoulders more time to release through long held stretches. We’ll dim the lights, warm up the room and stay low to the ground as Bryan leads us through a potent practice for the body & mind.
