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.

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.

Tom Kelly, was born in Los Angeles, California in the United States of America, on April 6, 1950. As a child, Tom was naturally devotional, serving as an altar boy at his family church. While attending college at the University of California in Santa Barbara, Tom developed a deep yearning within his heart and soul to make a more intimate connection with God.

Founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in southern California, SRF- is an international, non-profit, religious organization that has roots that trace back to the ancient lineage of Swamis from India.
After taking vows of simplicity, chastity, obedience, and loyalty, Tom spent the next 25 years engaged in rigorous spiritual training as a deeply devoted raja yoga monk practicing meditation and humanitarian service on a daily basis, specializing in ministry, team building and motivational speaking.
In the fall of 1999, after joyfully living and serving for 25 years as a monk in the Self-Realization Fellowship Order, Tom felt ready to embark on a new adventure in his life. Filled with inspiration and the assurance from the Divine, Tom left the monastic life and re-entered the secular world, in order to expand his life learning, as well as share the fruits of his self-transformation and direct experience of Yoga with all.
