Don’t miss the chance to practice with the creator of Power Yoga in Genève / Geneva!
The founder of the original Poweryoga, BRYAN KEST belongs to the yoga world's most popular teachers.
His presence attracts crowds and often, he teaches in front of hundreds of people, discovering the benefits of poweryoga.

 

Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga since 1979, starting when he was 14 years old.

 The Poweryoga Master Classes with Bryan Kest are very popular with students of yoga of all levels.

The Poweryoga Master Classes with Bryan Kest are very popular with students of yoga of all levels.

He initially studied with David Williams, the first person to bring ashtanga yoga to the US. He then studied intensively in India with K.Pattabhi Jois, ashtanga yoga's grand master.

Bryan Kest has been teaching yoga for 25 years and developped his own style of yoga, the original Poweryoga. He has helped thousands of people on to a healthier, more peaceful lifestyle that continually challenges them to grow. Poweryoga is a system of exercise that fully integrates the body, mind, and spirit. If you attend INNERCITYOGA's classes, you will find a lot of Bryan's teachings in Ioana's, Patric's and Joe's classes, namely the Hatha Flow and Slow Flow.

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 (a practitioner of yoga). At age 15, 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.
Reservation highly recommended: this workshop usually fill up very quickly!

Aloha, … I was very fortunate to move to Hawaii at the age of 14. It was in Hawaii that I was even more fortunate to meet David Williams at David’s and Brad Ramsey’s class. David was the first person to bring Ashtanga Yoga to the world outside of India. Brad became an incredibly influential example of how to be a man and a yogi.

I first started leading yoga classes at age 20 when I was invited by a clinic who specialized in eating disorders to share my practice with their clients. The clinic, called Esteem Clinic (in Santa Monica), was so happy with the results that they offered me more clients, and a yoga career was born.

At the age of 24, I entered my first ten-day Goenka Vipassana meditation course, after returning from living in India, where I studied with K. Patthabi Jois, before it was a trendy thing to go to India and study yoga. When I was there, it was just me, my traveling mate, and Patthabi Jois, all by ourselves. Upon my return, I enrolled in the Goenka course; being informed through meditation, my Ashtanga yoga practice began morphing from its generic sequence into something more personal. In a lot of ways, this is what Power Yoga is: freedom and discovery! This is what I meant when I coined the term Power Yoga.

I was very much inspired by Goenka. The practice he shared is profound and his delivery is equally profound.


My yoga classes are truly a multi-dynamic experience–a confluence of movements combining a balanced sequence with all elements of physical exercise, mindfulness, moderation and meditation. All of these are within a supportive dialogue developed to empower the practitioner. The distinct objective is strengthening the benevolent and eradicating the malevolent.

A: No, you are free to mix and match all workshop classes.
Attend Thursday night and Friday night. Or only the Friday classes. Or only 1 workshop. Or combine all 3 workshop classes for a full immersion with Bryan Kest. That is what we will do and what we also recommend to anyone serious about yoga.

Q: So, I can simply attend only one workshop. Can I book for another one on the spot?
A: Yes, this is possible, as long as there is a spot for you in the extra workshop that you would like to attend.

Q: Will there many people?
A: You bet! We usually have a waiting list of 20 people, some devoted students even offered to practice in the hallway in front of the elevator! But no worries, while we are numerous, the atmosphere during the workshop is just incredible!

Q: I took his classes already. Is it worth for me to attend this workshop?
A: If you love yoga and you enjoyed the workshop in the past, it is a no-brainer for us to attend. Think of your favorite dish. You will have it again and again because it feels just so satisfying.

A: If you are registered for the RYS-300 hours Deep Flow Yoga Teacher Training, hours of these workshop classes are counted towards the practical part.

Q: Can I book a private with Bryan?
A: That would be an incredibly expensive private class ; ) Sorry, but Bryan's time is limited and he will be focusing on the workshop classes while in Geneva.
