A favorite instructor to yogis of all levels in Los Angeles and beyond, Brent Laffoon is the lead teacher trainer for Pure Yoga and Equinox Fitness Clubs in Southern California. When he's not practicing and teaching his regular classes in LA, he can be found leading his Yoga Adventures and teaching workshops around the world. Trained in a variety of styles -- including Ashtanga, Bhakti and Iyengar -- his classes are both playful and intense, a blend of traditional yoga philosophy and posture mixed with a variety of creative movements and exercises designed to strengthen the body, calm the mind and ultimately help us heal whatever wounds might be preventing us from experiencing as much joy as this life has to offer us.
Prior to teaching yoga, Brent was a college football player, a Peace Corps volunteer and a screenwriter, among other things. He is honored to have learned from some of the world's most highly regarded teachers and feels blessed to be able to share the practice of yoga with others.
In the name of limitless possibility: Om
In the hope of abiding peace as one of those possibilities: Shanti
And in the spirit of unity, love and respect among all living creatures and the Earth itself: Namaste.
