Brian Friedman

Founder, Co-Owner, and Co-Director

Brian has been practicing, teaching, and studying yoga since 1993. Over the decades Brian has developed a specialized low-impact method of yoga that does not require flexibility.

That method is Functional Yoga Instruction.

His desire to develop his own method of yoga came from injuries from a very vigorous yoga practice.  He pulled back on his yoga practice and began a deep study of anatomy and how the body functions and moves from a strength standpoint.  From this Functional Yoga Instruction was born. 

Satisfied clients in the Winter Garden area (and around the globe) love the slow, controlled movement with an emphasis on precise alignment and a focus on strength instead of flexibility. 

In fact, 1,000s of students have become stronger, stress-free, and more mobile with consistent practice.
