Yoga for Cyclists
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.

“Ryan is as cool as it gets. His energy, focus and mastery to his craft is contagious. Where Ryan goes, people follow.”
I started going to the class because I was unable to ride because of my cancer, and needed more activity, and the class really helped me keep active as well as helped me cope both physically and emotionally with my journey. Now I’ve got some experience, I really appreciate the fast flow with next to no interruptions from start to finish, and always feel like I’ve had an amazing workout by the end.
Why Practice with Ryan?
Through a sixteen year professional cycling career, yoga allowed me to ride longer and with more style, magnify my focus, prevent injury, increase strength and most importantly enjoy the sport I love. Whether you ride recreationally or professionally, and whether you’re fresh to yoga or fluent in it, my intent is not only to share my favorite cyclist specific posture sequences, but also to elicit a more awake relationship between how your body moves, your mind thinks, and your spirit inspires.
Each routine is inspired by breathtaking alpine views from Sol Mountain in the Monashee’s, original musical score by Corduroy Kid, anatomical wisdom from my sports physiotherapist, and a healthy dose of channeled blissology from my yoga teacher Eoin Finn.

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.
