Ryan is a firm believer that, through steady practice and devotion, all peopleóregardless of age, gender, race or religionócan experience the Oneness of Yoga.
Ryan is primarily a student of the Krishamacharya yoga lineage and continues to study under Father Joe Pereira, by whom he was authorized to teach. Ryan trains with Baron Baptiste, Eddie Modestini and Nicki Doane (Maya), Danny Paradise, Srivatsa Ramaswami (Vinyasa Krama). He also received instruction from Ashtanga Guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.
Ryan is rooted in local sacred teachings. He studies and serves the Elders in his home province of Saskatchewan (which comes from the Cree word kisiskaciwani-spiv meaning "swift flowing river").
