    Bryan Kest: The Original Power Yoga

    in Lifestyle

    Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga since 1979 and has been teaching since 1985. He developed his unique, distinctive style of yoga, Original Power Yoga, in 1979. Over the years, this style, an amazing workout for the body, mind and spirit, has made him a well-known, popular teacher across the country and around the world.


    His 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, PattabhiJois. He has been continuing on his yoga path ever since.

    Yoga Maya: An Inspirational Documentary

    in Spirituality

    Arvind Chittumalla, producer and director of Yoga Maya, has been practicing yoga for the last 30 years. He moved to the US ten years ago. Since then, he has actively participated in the American yoga industry as a practitioner, teacher and yoga entrepreneur. He has owned yoga studios and produced many yoga festivals and conferences. He has often wondered why a vast and profound way of life such as yoga has been relegated to a primarily physical practice. After interacting with hundreds of yoga teachers, yoga businesses and students, he has come to the realization that there are many misconceptions of yoga in America, and it is these misconceptions that are preventing many people from embracing all aspects of yoga. In Yoga Maya, he wishes to shed light on these thought provoking misconceptions.

    Religion, Holidays, Happiness, and Kriya Yoga

    in Spirituality

    Hostess Lisa Winton and Swami Jayananda will be discussing the origins of religious holidays and the real meaning of the "feast." Religions had points of passage and rites of passage in order to "convert" humans from consuming fear to humans consuming truth. "The more things change the more they remain the same," if you are not consuming this one truth-- you are in the realms of suffering and decay. They will talk about the differences between worldly happiness, intellectual happiness and eternal happiness-- and how it all depends on what we desire. There is only one truth, one God, one religion, one Yoga, one #1 need--  everything else misses the mark.  Join the Kriya Yoga Spiritual Advance as they focus on renewal and transformation with the Divine.
