About the instructor

For a majority of his adult life, Ryan's passion has been to identify and learn the best services, methods, and philosophies that support and nurture the health and wellness of human beings. In 2005 by the recommendation of his girlfriend (now wife) he was introduced to yoga. It has been a part of his life ever since.  

In 2010, along with my wife and a close friend, Ryan opened his first yoga studio in San Diego California. In 2015 he opened a second studio in Charlottesville Virginia. In 2020 Ryan stepped back from running studios to build RESILIENCE, an online training and development company with the mission of teaching individuals how to overcome challenges and redefine themselves as their highest expression of meaning and purpose.

Ryan is a 200-hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) through Yoga Alliance and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. He was the team lead for MOSAIC’s Yoga services and the creator and director of their 5-star Yoga Alliance ranked teacher training program for more than seven years.  

Ryan has studied at the National Academy of Sports Medicine, the CHEK Institute for advanced performance, the Metabolic Typing Education Center and Symmetry’s school for alignment therapy. He has come to recognize health as the balance and synergy of the human body’s many systems, reflected in the way we eat, move, breath, think, rest and surrender.

Ryan has taught over 20,000 students and over 2,000 classes including, open enrollment public classes, special operations forces, corporate teams, and professional athletes. He has also trained over 200 yoga teachers. He is a regular headlining teacher at the San Diego Yoga Festival and been featured on multiple yoga focused podcasts.
