Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka creates an oasis for me to become all of me. When I step on my Manduka mat it is like I am stepping onto a mirror. My Manduka sees me in ways that no one else does, and provides with me with a safe and comfortable place to be who I am. No judgment, no criticism, just self- reflection. This mat is like no other mat. It is awesome! There is no place I would rather be than on my mat! My Manduka is my crystal ball- it knows where I am going, even before I do.

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.
