Bryan Kest Power Yoga Teacher Training and Immersion

“This training emphasizes and embraces the fact that we are all so different ... as students and as teachers. Bryan not only helped me embrace my own unique style, but also encouraged me to share it with others.” —Catherine M.

A strong physical practice needs to be grounded in a strong mental practice. Bryan Kest believes that true wellness and health are rooted in a calm, peaceful mind that is less dominated by habits, less reactive, and more in tune with the body, breath, and emotions. In his approach to yoga, the poses are infused with purpose and meaning, combining physical exercise with mindfulness to create a true meditation in motion.. WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE
• Practice teaching
• The complete Power Yoga Brahma sequence
• Meditation in motion

In this program, Bryan shares his more than four decades of experience practicing and teaching Power Yoga. Through interactive, nondogmatic, and lighthearted sessions—with plenty of time to practice teaching—you learn
