Lesson ruined by Bryan's aggressive arrogance and creepy attempts to hit on his female followers. I took a casual lesson with the guy because my girlfriend was into his videos and wanted to see him in real life. It's clear that Bryan has been doing this for years, his main schtick for success being able to swear like a North Eastern American in combination with one-liners that rhymed. Other than that, he is completely ordinary as an instructor. This would be all well in good except that he was a complete jerk to other men in the class who were also there with their girlfriends it seemed, and his aggressive attempts to seem like Alpha Male were honestly pathetic and kind of creepy. At one point he asked everyone to do a simple position, we all did it, and he straight up told a guy that he's not good enough to be in the class because he wasn't doing this move correctly. While this person did not do the move perfectly, he certainly did do it, which made Bryan's comment seem overly aggressive. He then was getting very touchy with (surprise) only the extremely hot girls in the class. Another participant who was in the corner (both walls of the corner were mirrors) was looking at himself to make sure his position was correct and Bryan stopped the class to yell at him for 'looking at himself too much'. I just thought 'poor guy' and just hated this arrogant yoga instructor, whose success was no doubt caused in part by his looks when he was younger. Bryan's favorite line seems to be 'Shut up, and do yoga', and I often found myself wishing that he would take his own advice.

You should know the studio is warm and that this is flow yoga, which I learned during the class. However, I loved that I had a choice of a few different studios within walking distance of my hotel and this one had several class offerings every day of the week. I took the 7 AM class on Sunday and everyone gets there at about 6:55 or later. Don't expect a gentle easy going class at this time slot, it's meant to work you out and you'll sweat just taking off your shoes. Walk-ins are welcome and there's a donation box - $15 to $20 per class. I'm more familiar with the Sanskrit names and this was in English so I would have liked a bit more description, but with mirrors on a few sides of the room you could figure it out. I wasn't certain that I could last a full hour, but somehow I managed. After a shower and breakfast, I felt fantastic so I guess it was well done. I think I favor ceiling fans over a warm room for my work outs. You can bring a child, if they will be quiet during class.

Bryan always does an amazing job of cutting through the layers of garbage that people tend to carry around and helping them find, for an hour or so at a time, the authentic person they are meant to be. If you heed his words and listen to your partner (your body) throughout class, you will leave feeling refreshed, recharged, revitalized and renewed. No Sanskrit pose names, no yoga pressure to attempt difficult poses, but you'll be dripping with sweat, exhausted in an energizing way, and ready to face the rest of your life. Bryan puts the power in power yoga.

While husband was working I was looking for a yoga studio near our hotel and found Power Yoga right around the corner. I forgot I was on a time zone difference so I went there at an off time. You walk into a sort of oasis, where there's a brick walkway that lead to different yoga rooms. Two men were at the desk and I felt like I was watching The Big Lebowski and I mean that in a good way! They were like, "Hey, whatever." How much is a class I ask. "Hey, it's all by donation, whatever you want, no problem." Mats? I ask. "We'll give you a mat, sure, sure, but we ask for $2." Class time? They rattled off a bunch of classes. They were so welcoming, so nice, and later in the day I go back. It was a large class held in a spacious room. Well, the instructor - and i'm not sure of his name - was excellent. He was able to focus on everyone and at the same time notice a new client and provide suggestions. He challenged while keeping people at their levels. He was also great from a meditative aspect, having spent quite sometime in India practicing yoga. Go. Don't worry. Feel Calm. Be Happy.

I was a little turned off when I first walked into the studio and it was boiling hot (I am not into hot yoga) but the AC kicked on shortly before class. Our instructor, Rudy, was awesome (and very handsome) and conducted a spiritual and challenging class. I was sore for the next two days. They encourage you to give a donation (which we did) if you take the class since they don't charge - which I thought was pretty cool.
