Ryan’s words:   ‘We’ve been trained to ask what someone does, not who they are.  I love watching the reactions received when I tell people I get paid to make others feel genuinely good about themselves, and about their lives,’ he mentions with a confident smile. ‘I think there is no greater gift than waking up in the morning and doing the thing that brings you the most joy… mine just also happens to be my vocation.’

As a certified ISHTA Yoga Teacher, Ryan teaches daily classes from his Somerset West studio, as well as hosting several “mass yoga and meditation” events every year, as a part of the growing Global Consciousness Movement.
