Class at Lululemon Head Office in Vancouver

Yoga With Ryan

At 24 years of age, I couldn’t sleep due to back pain, couldn’t bear weight on my hands in push up position, I had repetitive shoulder and knee issues, and I had tendonitis in my elbows.

Enter Yoga, a life and body transformed. Added strength and flexibility allowed my career as a professional mountain biker to flourish. A deepened connection between body, mind, soul, and spirit inspired a developmental journey that will never end.

My mission is simple, share this beautiful practice with others.

“I really enjoy Ryan’s yoga classes because Ryan has a voice that I can only describe as calm enthusiasm. As I follow his directions, we slowly and carefully move to new postures at our own levels of ability, but do so with a focused energy and intensity that inspires me to hold a position or relax into that one extra arc of extension. Still waters run deep.” –John

“Ryan is as cool as it gets. His energy, focus and mastery to his craft is contagious. Where Ryan goes, people follow.” Eric Peterson, Lululemon Global Brand Director

What can I expect at class?

Open, Flow, Flourish.  A fun and friendly vinyasa flow style that is suitable for all levels of yoga experience, from first timers to masters. Blending a mix of poses to challenge your strength and flexibility. Ryan encourages his students to tune in to their experience and bodily feedback to help guide them to safely explore their edges, both physically and mentally.
