Bryan is a great instructor, and has a great, calming presence. He provides constant tips (pull your belly to your spine, tighten up your back leg, etc.) which I find very helpful. He also gives basic instruction as to what you should be thinking of in each pose (front leg at a 90 degree angle, back leg straight, belly pulled in, etc.) -- again, very helpful. It also shows him doing each pose so you know what it should look like. It's not a beginners DVD but if you have some background in yoga you'll be able to keep up. The only real criticism I have is he doesn't use the Sanskrit names for the poses. I like to know the true names of the poses as I'm doing them (I can't remember all of them off the top of my head), so I wish he did that. Otherwise, I'm very pleased.
ABOUT: I think Bryan Kest Power Yoga borders on YIN yoga, but way less boring. Bryan Kest holds the poses for a decent amount of time. You will get a full body workout, feel relaxed, calm, invigorated AND stretched. I don't know why, but it took the 2nd or 3rd time of doing one of the practices on the DVD for me to actually feel that way. I think it was because I wasn't familiar with moves, flow, etc. After learning the flow, I can honestly say each time I do a practice, my body feels 20 years younger. I was in gymnastics as a teenager, and doing Bryan Kest gives me the same feeling as doing a gymnastics practice----supple, strong & alive.
Music in each of the workouts is the same, just different flows/mixes. I like the music a lot. It jives with the moves. It's more Indian/Tribal..... lots of percussion. Very calming. Of all yoga practices, I like Bryan Kest the best. I also like (in no particular order) Janet Stone, Eionn Finn, and Travis Elliot (who happens to have worked in Kest's studio with a similar flair). All give my body a feeling of suppleness & aliveness.
I find this to be an excellent buy with 3 wonderful 50 minute practices. Highly recommend.
