The Yoga of Mindfulness


What is Vinyasa Yoga?

Vinyasa  Yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses that is one of  the most  popular styles of yoga in the United States today. Also sometimes   called Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga, and Power Vinyasa Yoga this type of  practice involves synchronizing  the breath with a continuous flow of  postures. The fluid movements increase flexibility, strength, and  stamina, as it  calms the mind and improves overall health.  

"Vinyasa  means a gradual progression or a step-by-step approach that   systematically and appropriately takes a student from one point and   safely lands them at the next point. It is sometimes described as the   "breathing system," or the union of breath and movement that make up  the  steps." - Maty Ezraty

Bryan Kest Long, Slow, Deep Workshop

Long, Slow, Deep Master Class  (2p-5p) Bryan had a couple of objectives when he created Long, Slow,  Deep. First of all, Bryan wanted to give students a deep and challenging  alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing yoga classes. He  wanted students to have a choice of yoga practices that may not involve  Sun Salutations or Standing Series. Bryan wanted to offer students a  practice that is utterly potent without focusing on strength, endurance  or even building much heat. Secondly,Bryan wanted students to experience  the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving massive areas  such as hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc., more time to release  and go deeper into poses. This is truly an amazing routine!! It is by  FAR the most difficult class Bryan teaches, yet we rarely leave the  floor. The challenge of Long, Slow, Deep is mostly primarily mental but  hang in there, be patient and keep breathing deeply and fluidly. This  class is suited for students of all levels.
