The best yoga for you!

The goal of Power Yoga is balance, wellness, and feeling amazing!

Bryan Kest – Creator of Power Yoga

Bryan Kest created Poweryoga.com. He also is the creator of Power Yoga. Although Power Yoga has now become a generic term usually used to describe a vigorous yoga class. Bryan’s Power Yoga has much more depth and nuance to be described generically as simply a vigorous class. This depth and nuance come from 40 years of experience.

From Gentle to Vigorous

This is why with-in Bryan’s Power Yoga you will find different types of classes from gentle to vigorous, from yin and restorative classes to prenatal and kids yoga, relaxation and of course meditation. Bryan’s definition of Power is broader than most as he understands the definition of Power lies not only in the masculine qualities of strength (yang) but also with in the feminine qualities of gentleness (yin) and real health comes from a proper balance. Just as 2+2=4 strength + gentleness = moderation (the key to health). Taking things even further Bryan recognizes that the proper balance is personal and needs to be discovered.

Not A Generic Fitness Practice

We are all going through so much and all of this is affecting us. A generic fitness practice will not accommodate all of our needs. An example: If you have lower back pain, your normal running routine may be inappropriate. If you just discovered you’re pregnant, that vigorous class might be dangerous to the embryo. If you are getting up there in years, that same old thing you always have done becomes out of date.”

A unique approach

Modern medicine is now telling us most disease is emanating from mental stress, which means responsibly speaking fitness routines need to address the mind, if health is truly their goal, otherwise it has a very superficial effect. Something super cool is that in personalizing a dynamic fitness routine such as many of poweryoga.com’s classes which is needed to accommodate our uniqueness, meditation automatically appears as meditation is a by-product of personalizing. Meditation is the antidote to the stress that’s poisoning us. This is one of the many ways Poweryoga.com adds depth to the users experience and enhances results!

Ethics, Generosity & Integrity

As we know variety is the spice of life so Bryan Kest brings to you a few of his hand picked instructors which have passed Bryan’s test of either succeeding in the most saturated fitness market on earth, which is southern California or simply having years upon years of personal yoga experience and most of these instructors have both. We understand that ethics, integrity & generosity are a valid part of the wellness paradigm and as the creator of the western worlds first donation yoga studio “Santa Monica Power Yoga” we have always demonstrated these qualities in our business. We do this by being upfront and transparent in offerings and price. We do this by offering free content so this beautiful practice is available to all. We do this by offering updated technology and excellent customer service. We do this by giving monthly to these charities: Children’s Tumor Foundation, Smile Train, Veterans Yoga Project.

Power Yoga is…

a calm and peaceful mind. A strong physical practice needs to be grounded in a strong mental practice.
Power Yoga believes a calm and peaceful mind is:

More centered and objective

More accepting of life and its fluctuations

More in tune with the body, feelings, and intuition
