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.
