Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka Mat traveled around the world with me from Fiji to New Zealand, Bali, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Iceland and the East Coast before following me to my hometown of Seattle. It didn't matter where I went, when I rolled out my mat to practice I felt like I was home.

For Ryan, yoga philosophy is a way of life; yoga asana is an art. Using his extensive knowledge of kinesiology, alignment and exercise physiology, Ryan works to teach new students how to implement yoga, whether it be a private or class setting, in a skillful manner which address mind, body and soul. He believes yoga is a process that requires discipline and persistence, resulting in the experience of setting one free. This is both the challenge and the beauty that inspires him as an instructor and a student.
