Bryan Kest

ABOUT BRYAN AND POWER YOGA. Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and teaching for over 20 years. Bryan developed his unique, distinctive style of yoga - Original Power yoga - in 1979. Over the years, his style of yoga - an amazing workout for the body, mind, and spirit - has made him a well-known yoga teacher across the country and around the world. Bryan's mainstream popularity is matched by an authentic foundation in the ancient practice of yoga and a long path of development as a yogi (practitioner of yoga). At age 15, Bryan uprooted from his native Detroit home to live in Hawaii 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 Bryan's father introduced him to a physical style of yoga called Ashtanga. Ashtanga immediately appealed to Bryan and soon he observed changes both physically and mentally. Yoga quickly became his passion - one that would take him to India for a year to study Ashtanga with Pattabhi Jois. Bryan founded four yoga studios in Southern California (Santa Monica and Calabasas). He also teaches yoga classes, workshop, and retreats around the world. Bryan also instructs intensive teacher training programs and is featured in numerous Videos, DVDs and audio CD Series.

Bryan teaches workshops and teacher trainings for Yoga University of Florida and Altamonte Springs Yoga.


Doug Keller

About Doug -

Doug Keller’s background reflects a lifelong commitment to studying, imbibing and sharing the vast field of knowledge and practice known as yoga. After receiving honors and graduate degrees in philosophy from the top Jesuit universities in the United States, Georgetown and Fordham Universities, and teaching philosophy at a college level for several years, he then pursued his ‘post-graduate’ education in the practical experience of yoga at the Siddha Meditation Ashram, Gurudev Siddha Peeth in India, for seven years, and spent a total of 14 years doing service, practicing, training in and teaching yoga in Siddha Meditation Ashrams worldwide. He received intensive training in the Iyengar system in New York City, practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in India, and became one of the first certified Anusara Yoga teachers, producing three highly respected books on asana, pranayama and yoga philosophy. His work has since taken him beyond the confines of the Anusara system.

His further expansion in learning is reflected in his latest and most in-depth work, ‘Yoga as Therapy,’ which is truly one of the most comprehensive, innovative and useful treatments of the structural aspect of yoga therapy available. Moreover, for a year he has been a regular columnist for Yoga+ Magazine (formerly Yoga International, published by the Himalayan Institute), writing the ‘Asana Solutions’ column that addresses specific therapeutic problems. He is at the highest level of certification with Yoga Alliance, ERYT-500, and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Doug’s teaching is rooted in a vast and inclusive perspective of study and practice that honors the insights of the many streams of wisdom that flow into the river of yoga.
