There’s been a lot of talk around the internets about HTML5 – what it is and isn’t, what it means for different companies and products, and where the web is going (everyone’s trying to give it a new version number). I’ll try to cut through all the nonsense and show you what you can use today and what you’ll have to wait a bit longer for. I’ve been working on some demos that should give you an idea of what’s possible.

Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and teaching for over 20 years. Bryan developed his unique, distinctive style of yoga – Original Power Yoga – in 1979. Over the years, his style of yoga – an amazing workout for the body, mind and spirit – has made him a well-known yoga teacher across the country and around the world. Bryan’s mainstream popularity is matched by an authentic foundation in the ancient practice of yoga and a long path of development as a yogi (practioner of yoga). At age 15, Bryan uprooted from his native Detroit home to live in Hawaii with his father, a doctor, who understood the benefits of yoga. Like many of us, Bryan originally thought yoga was nothing more than strange contortions but that changed when Bryan’s father introduced him to a physical style of yoga called Ashtanga. Ashtanga immediately appealed to Bryan and soon he observed changes both physically and mentally. Yoga quickly became his passion – one that would take him to India for a year to study Ashtanga with Pattabhi Jois. Bryan founded four yoga studios in Southern California (Santa Monica and Calabasas). He also teaches yoga classes, workshops, and retreats around the world. Bryan also instructs intensive teacher training programs and is featured in numerous Videos, DVDs, and audio CD series. Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga Master class is a well rounded, flowing asana practice integrating spiritual practice that enhance everyday living. The class is designed to invigorate the body and develop a calm, less reactive state of mind while practicing dynamic, flowing sequences. In Bryan’s Power Yoga Master Class students are encouraged to focus on the spiritual process and not the end result. This allows ALL levels of yoga practitioners to enjoy and benefit from the experience.
