Restorative / Deep Relaxation

A handful of poses are taught using yoga props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets in a quietly lit room. The practice is passive and relaxing. All levels welcome. Accompanied with gentle music. Deep Stretch uses long, passive holds to work on the deep, dense connective tissues of the body - the tendons, ligaments and cartilage - which can be difficult to open.

Stretching increases flexibility in the spine and hips and is restorative and rehabilitative for the joints and muscles. It soothes the mind and allows the body to recover and balance.

Ryan discovered yoga at the age of 6 when his father brought him along to a Bryan Kest class in Santa Monica above the Radio Shack store. He left the class feeling sick and miserable because it was extremely hot and sweaty. During his high school years he was reintroduced to yoga. Ryan was immediately drawn to the endless physical and mental benefits of his practice. After struggling with substance abuse throughout his teen years, he eventually sought the road to recovery. He continues to take the time to heal his body and mind through his daily practice of meditation and asana (poses). Ryan has taken a teacher training with Rudy Mettia and Travis Eliot as well as having studied with Steve Ross and Tom Morley. Today his practice supports his spiritual growth as well as his physical well being and has created a place of peace and understanding. Ryan's wish is to share that with others throughout his life.
Howie, one of the oldest of the new young yoga teachers, is a Yoga Alliance certified Hatha yoga instructor. He has studied many forms of yoga from Kundalini to Ashstanga, but his passion is in the physical practice of Hatha yoga, often called Vinyasa or Power Yoga. To Howie, power yoga's dynamic physical practice requires dedication, stamina, patience, strength, and focus, but most of all, it requires utilizing the powerful yoga breath work, called ujjayi pranayama breath, or victorious breath, which is the doorway to meditation. With over 12 years of practice and training with some of the top yoga teachers, including Rudy Mettia, Bryan Kest, and Drorit Rudin, Howie brings his own unique style and humor to his classes. Yoga means union or balance and to Howie, he believes balancing our mental life with our physical life is critical for good health. Physical exercise has always been a part of Howie's life, from gymnastics in high school and college to 15 years of Tae Kwon Do while earning a black belt, but yoga has been the most challenging and rewarding for Howie. When Howie is not teaching yoga, on Sundays for fun, you will often find him at Santa Monica beach flying on the rings! Be prepared for a strong class for both beginners and advanced, all taught with safety and mindfulness at the top of the list.

Originally from Issaquah WA, I moved to LA on a jazz dance scholarship, soon I was dancing internationally, MANY years ago...My latest sport of choice is tennis. I am the current singles and doubles champion at North ranch Country Club, although I am not that good, I showed up and competed. I still compete on various local teams.I have practiced yoga for 25 years, when tennis started to take the front seat, my body paid the price on the pavement. I needed 2-3 Advil to walk on the court, braces on both knees, and my right arm. Balancing out tennis with yoga has not only healed my body, but continues to keep me in awe of it's healing qualities of the mind, body, and spirit. I teach a strong, alignment based class, keeping you safe. Infused with yoga philosophy in an aim to expand self-imposed limitations. I am fortunate to have a diverse roster of private, pro-athlete, and corporate clients.

Brian began practicing yoga as a means to stretch in 2003. He had no desire to develop a spiritual practice or teach. However, when he quickly became quite strong and balanced on his mat, he recognized that yoga was no longer just a way to stretch, but a path to wellness, wholeness, and Inner Peace. "When I step onto my mat, time and space no longer exist. My mat is a magic carpet upon which I find complete stillness. When I teach, I share these ideas and encourage students to leave the past and future where they belong. Yoga is practiced in the present. We can only honor and respect mind, body, and Spirit by practicing in the now. I love this quote from the Upanishads: 'When the five senses are stilled, when the mind is stilled, when the intellect is stilled, that is called the highest state by the wise. They say yoga is this complete stillness.' " Brian's classes are taught from a Holistic viewpoint, utilizing elements of Bhakti, Tantra, and Ayurveda to connect mind-body-Spirit. Hatha-based, these classes flow in a strong Vinyasa style, and include dynamic asana, adjustments, kriyas, mudras, pranayama, and subtle body work to energize and balance the chakras, meridians, and nadis. Yogic philosophy is discussed during classes. Special playlists and live music (guitar, harmonium) are utilized.
I am a hatha yoga teacher, passionate and energetic about sharing this practice we call yoga.. I draw from my life experiences as a criminal trial attorney, mediator, wife and mother. I teach because when I found yoga, the seductress that she is, what began as another form of "working out" quickly became a form of "working in" and changed my life. I discovered the road to my SELF. I knew it was a great excuse to spend my days in my favorite space, sharing that journey with others. My classes are fun! I strive to have you feel like you hit the trifecta of mind, body and spiritual work. There's breath work, sankulpa (intention setting), and mediation all while moving and grooving and flowing to great tunes. You might even laugh! All you need is a 5x2 mat, and you can let go, get happy, minimize life's stresses and find resolution and peace within the smallest of spaces. One thing's certain, you'll leave feeling better than when you walked in the door.
