Teacher Training & Yoga Practice Immersion with Bryan Kest
Bryan Kest Teacher Training
About the Training: Teaching is sharing the knowledge of experience. Let's cultivate an understanding of yoga and let's live that understanding. Let the teaching be our life example. What we say and what we do after this is teaching yoga. My intentions are not only to deepen our understanding through dialogue and practice, but also I want everyone to come home feeling amazing, strong and healthy, calm and clear, fresh and energized, motivated to continue this sacred practice of Yoga which seems to be a valid well source of our potential.
A training of this nature shouldn't be just an intellectual concept, it should be an experience. To have the experience of yoga is not always easy. Yoga by its very nature is cleansing. In order for this cleansing to occur one needs the strength and balance of mind to explore one's thoughts, fears and habits and begin to eradicate those which are not beneficial.
Be aware if you are signing up for my trainings and you don't know me through my classes in Los Angeles or workshops throughout the world, please read my website thoroughly, get to know my perspective, make sure it jives with yours. If you would like a more objective view point of my training, we can provide you the email addresses of prior attendees. You can email them directly and ask specific questions. After all your inquiries, still be open to the unexpected; spontaneity plays an important role.
By the end of the training your experience will be your reward. This is something you now own and may share it however you see fit. If you participated to the degree I see fit you will also get a completion certificate. Remember, to sign up for this training does not mean you are buying yourself a certificate. You are buying an experience. It is my intention that you have an amazing experience.

Course Topics attempted to be covered:
Increasing your knowledge of yoga
Practicing asanas and meditation
Learning to teach a flowing routine
Creating a dialogue
All courses have a natural flow and chemistry, which means different things may be emphasized in different courses pertaining to the group. Although the above list mentions the topics and possibilities, what exactly will happen is hard to know beforehand. Yoga is an immense topic which could never be fully covered in this training or any other training for that matter. I am simply sharing my experience and understanding. Also, there may be things you really want to learn that I am not fit to teach due to those things not being part of my practice. Please be clear about this training being right for you, because your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Course Goal: Whatever the direction our journey may be, our goal is to create excitement about and support for our yoga practice which spills out of each one of us to all that we touch, as well as cultivate the art of sharing, teaching, instructing, and giving. - Bryan Kest
Bryan Kest Teacher Training
About Bryan Kest: Bryan has been involved with yoga practice since he was 15 years old starting in Hawaii around 1978/9 with David Williams, the first person to bring Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga to the USA. Bryan started sharing his new found experience almost immediately through his excitement and deep affinity with yoga thought. Through the years of study, practice and sharing Bryan has acquired a certain amount of experience and understanding that he brings into this program, which include almost 3 decades of practice but also over 16,000 classes he has instructed. Bryan has had success and has made mistakes, helped people and hurt people, all of which will be laid out for us to examining and learn from.
All true health and wellness come from a calm and peaceful mind. A calm and peaceful mind is:
Less dominated by habits and addictive behavior.
Less reactive to our situations (less stress).
More centered and objective
More accepting of life and its fluctuations
More in tune with the body, breath, feelings, and intuition
So the poses naturally need to be infused with a purpose and meaning which brings insight and energy to an otherwise mundane physical practice of poses, or eastern calisthenics. In this way, the poses become asana or "meditation in motion". As we excel in this practice, our yoga begins to transcend the yoga room and permeates our life. In other words, a strong physical practice needs to be grounded in a strong mental practice. - Bryan Kest
