Yoga NRG hosted Bryan Kest’s first Australian tour in 2010 and his tours have sold out each year since, well in advance for Brisbane so don't miss this chance to get your ticket for 2016! .
Bryan returns this year to to deliver his very entertaining talks on Yoga, his Power Yoga Master classes and his popular Long Slow Deep…. an experience you will never forget!
Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga Master Classes are strong, yet well-rounded, simple yet physical practices that will leave every nook and cranny in your body vibrating with vitality. 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.
Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga for more than 30 years, having initially studied in Hawaii with David Williams,the first person to bring Ashtanga yoga to America, then in India with K. Pattabhi Jois, of Ashtanga Yoga. He now teaches to packed-out classes around the world and in his studio in Santa Monica, Los Angeles.
“The old fitness mentality is over! We are way past tearing ourselves to shreds simply to be more aesthetically pleasing. Power Yoga is about working hard sensitively. It’s about feeling good, not just looking good. The tone and shapeliness you attain from this work is a by-product. The focus here is balance and healing”.
Power Yoga Class & Yoga Talk - 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 Bryans talk is an honest, fresh & simple perspective that is extremely helpful and applicable to life itself. This class is dynamic yet accessible to everyone! There is no contortion, no pretzel like moves - but you will be challenged (maybe not in the way you think you will be) This class will work you from inside out and nourish every muscle, fibre, and system of the body. Every moment in this class will be a chance for you to narrow your focus down to your breathing and work on cultivating the qualities of mind that will help you in all areas of your life.
Long Slow Deep - a deep and potent alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing Hatha yoga classes. I wanted people to know that they have a choice. There have been so many days in my life when I just didn’t want to do a salutation or a lunge series or even to be that physically active. Yet, I still had the time and ability to practice as well as the desire for all the pleasing benefits of yoga. I wanted people to see how utterly potent this kind of practice can be even without focusing on strength, endurance or even acquiring much heat. I also wanted people to experience the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving these massive areas (hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc.) more time to release deeper.
