Ryan discovered yoga through heartbreak and self-study (svadhyaya). The slow unfolding of the benefits of regular asana practice and yogic teachings made him want to go further down the veggie rabbit hole. Ryan is keen on breath, alignment, strong hands-on assists, presence and joining life off the mat with life on the mat. If given the chance he will probably make a Burning Man or movie reference. Ryan is a 200 Hr. Sarva Yoga & 800-Hour Jivamukti Yoga Certified Teacher. Ryan would like to give thanks to his inspirational and influential teachers : Michael Hewett, Lilia Mead, Matthew Lombardo, Jessica Stickler, Rima Rabbath, Sharon Gannon, David Life and all beings that have ever existed.
