Biography 

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 the late 1980s. 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 14, 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 his studio in Santa Monica, CA. He also teaches at workshops and retreats around the world, and he provides an intensive teacher training program. His most recent endeavor is PowerYoga OnLine. 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.  For articles by Bryan and more information about Power Yoga, visit PowerYoga.com.
