Brian Bales Yogi & LMT is the Founder and Creator of B1 Yoga. Brian has devoted more than 20 years to various healing modalities, including massage,
yoga, meditation, and energetic healing.

Background

Brian was born in Houston, but spent most of his childhood years in Kansas City. Brian’s Dad, Nathan, first taught him to meditate when he was only 10 years old. It changed his life in ways that he only now can recognize. The next big change for Brian was when he began to study Tae Kwon Do with Master Chon Lee, one of the few 8th degree black belts in the country at that time. Through this experience he was introduced to the importance of energy, flexibility and foundation and for the first time Brian excelled to the top of his class. Brian felt honored to study under Master Lee. At the age of 15, He began traveling on his motorcycle & covered thousands of miles from coast to coast North & South.  He was in awe of the beautiful and magnificence sights he encountered, & the silence of traveling solo for long periods at a time. After many years of living in Sedona, AZ. working as a carpenter, Hospice care, nurse & eventually massage therapist. He moved to WA state in 1992 to continue massage school & seek advanced studies in many forms of body work.

Brain has studied With some of the worlds greatest teachers!

Brian feels blessed to have studied with some of the World’s Greatest YOGI’S. Through their Teachings, Blessings and Many Gifts, Brian developed his own, unique style of Yoga, called B1 Yoga, in the tradition of Tantric Hatha Yoga. Brian’s yogic path has been most inspired by David Life and Sharon Gannon and therefore, his classes are similar to a Jivamukti class!
