Michael Bolton Yoga.

Via on Jan 19, 2011

Bryan Kest shirtless in denim cutoffs, with flowing Tarzan locks. Seriously? Seriously.

Okay, so it’s Bryan Kest—but this thing is too funny/painful to bear.

Heard word of this video via our recent Yasshole article re Bryan Kest…and the following comment re the below videos:

Love that 80s-ish DVD (filmed in 94 or so though I think) where he’s teaching in denim cutoffs–not to mention the Michael Bolton hair, which Jai Uttal rocked back then too…


(there’s plenty more where that one came from)

    Hilarious. This dude will be famous, if he isn’t already. People need this stuff to help them feel their practice of yoga is “off the wall” or “edgy-cool.” what they don’t realize is how boring and square this actually is.

      Michael Bolton or Kenny G. Their music is old now, but it brings back memories … so which is square: the era, the music or the practice of yoga .. ? If it's all 3 I see your point.

    Thank God someone noticed this! I just happen to have recently gotten the DVDs from Amazon, and they are hee-larious. My personal fave is in the very beginning, where there are several slo-mo shots of him making bedroom drishti at the camera. The practices are great, but I bet he's been holding his breath and praying these wouldn't be rediscovered. Maybe the universe is sending him some humility:)

    GHghhhAHAHAHA bedroom drishti…might have to blog that first one, now! ~ W.

    Yes, they are old, but great yoga. I practiced with him for 12 years. He is nothing like he appears to be. He is so humble and I give him crap about his thermal cut offs and flowing hair! He is a proud Dad and husband now. These videos are around 1994 I think!
    Take class with him now, great yoga, different approach, but still a sarcastic Detroit guy, I love!

    so good!
