Long Slow Deep (LSD) with Bryan Kest

March 23, 2024
5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

This classic class created by Bryan Kest is composed of long holds for a deep, yin-style experience. A slower-paced flow, the challenge of Long, Slow & Deep is primarily mental. Students are presented with the opportunity to deepen classic poses, focus on the breath, and find patience.
The Long, Slow and Deep class has at the very least a few ostensible objectives. The first is, I wanted to give people a deep and potent alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing Hatha yoga classes. I wanted people to know that they have a choice. There have been so many days in my life when I just didn’t want to do a salutation or a lunge series or even to be that physically active. Yet, I still had the time and ability to practice as well as the desire for all the pleasing benefits of yoga. I still wanted to maintain my practice. I wanted people to see how utterly potent this kind of practice can be even without focusing on strength, endurance or even acquiring much heat. I also wanted people to experience the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving these massive areas (hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc.) more time to release deeper.
This truly is an amazing routine. It’s a paradox. It is by far the most difficult class I teach, yet you don’t really get off your butt the whole class. The challenge here is mostly mental. You are probably going to want to run away from this one, especially in the beginning. Hang in there, be patient and keep breathing, deeply and fluidly. So, dim the lights, warm up the room and enjoy (at least how it leaves you feeling).
