As a fitness devotee, Brian didn’t come to yoga for the physical practice. He came to the mat to increase his focus and awareness in an effort to go faster in a race car! After only a few practices, he realized he had embarked on a life changing experience, both physically and spiritually. Brian’s classes are challenging and unique. While his passion is intense, he teaches with a calm and nurturing style. This combination of intensity and sensitivity is why Brian has been described as the “perfect dichotomy.” Through yoga, he enjoys giving people tools to live a more fulfilled life. He is excited to see where his yoga journey takes him. Always a student Brian has had many great teachers in Kansas City and Los Angeles: Gretchen Robinson, Mark Blanchard, Emily Darling, Seane Corn, Vinnie Marino, Tamal Dodge, Tara Stiles and Brian Kest to name a few. Brian has completed teacher trainings with Gretchen Robinson, an advanced teacher training with Eoin Finn and is currently working towards his Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher training with Emily Darling and Christy Burnette. He is also an ACE certified personal trainer. Off the mat, Brian is a Senior Human Factors Design Manager for Sprint.
