8-Week Online Teacher Training & Immersion - Spring 2020

with Bryan Kest

Enrollment is CLOSED!

Aloha everyone!

All true wellness and health come from a calm and peaceful mind. And I’m excited to offer my unique Online Teacher Training grounded in this belief.

This course is designed to empower you and provide an environment where your own unique understanding and perspective of yoga emerges out of direct experience and dialogue and you become confident in sharing it. Ultimately, I want you to emerge with a sense of your own style grounded by the life experiences that have informed you as well as your own consistent practice.

In this course, I share everything I’ve learned in my 38 years of yoga practice and 32 years of teaching yoga.

Over 8 weeks:

- Develop and strengthen your own voice
- Discover your unique style and approach
- Strengthen your asana practice
- Learn to meditate & explore the benefits of meditation
- Learn a complete sequence of flowing poses that you can share immediately
- Learn the multi-dynamic possibilities of all yoga poses
