Brian Delaney

If you are walking through life with pain or limitations, Brian can totally relate. In a devastating fall off a forty-foot cliff in 1995, Brian sustained massive injuries, including crushed facial bones, a torn rotator cuff, a broken wrist, and twenty breaks in his forearm. Two years after his accident, Brian went to his first yoga class. After just a few classes, he found that yoga relieved his pain and increased the range of motion in the injured parts of his body. With a dedicated practice, yoga brought him back to life – and today he is pain free.

Knowing yoga’s transformative power firsthand, Brian encourages his students to integrate yoga into their daily lives in a balanced, sustainable way. Brian’s approachable nature allows him to share his honest take on the world, which will let you know you are not alone in your daily challenges. His words will inspire you, make you laugh, and will have you seeing the world in a whole new way.

In 1998 Brian moved to Los Angeles. There he practiced with Bryan Kest, the creator of Power Yoga. Bryan Kest’s no nonsense approach to yoga put Brian at ease and allowed him to explore yoga in a new way. Brian found a sense of peace he had never known before.

One day, he stumbled into a class with Max Strom. Max paid attention to Brian’s injuries and helped him heal further, physically and emotionally, by adding deep breathing to his yoga practice. After these classes, Brian discovered the meaning of being content for the first time. Max had such a huge impact on Brian’s life that he took his first teacher training with him and Sherry Brourman, a physical therapist, in 2000. In 2007 Brian completed Max Strom’s 200-Hour training, Yoga as a Way of Life, and in 2013 he completed Power Yoga teacher training with Bryan Kest. Brian continues to travel and learn from both of his teachers each year. He now lives yoga as a lifestyle and is committed to help others live and be the best version of themselves.



Brian Delaney instructs the following:
  • External Balance Creates Internal Harmony
  • Do you have a miniscule panic attack when your yoga teacher mentions the words ‘balancing postures’ in class? Does your mind overtake the body in an effort to convince yourself you are a failure if you can’t land the pose? In this workshop led by Brian Delaney, you will learn how the practice of standing balancing poses can serve to improve your self-worth and quiet the mind. By focusing on breath and drishti, you will learn to improve your attention span and your increase your ability to focus. You will learn how to respond to the challenges of life instead of the typical reactions that cause pain.
