Philadelphia, PA, USA
Ryan graduated from the University of Scranton with an International Business Degree in June of 2012. Ryan found himself waiting tables in the Philadelphia area, reluctantly contemplating a 9-5 office job. One evening after his restaurant shift, Ryan received a phone call from his sister, It’s Yoga Leigh. She told him about her new journey with It’s Yoga and, half jokingly suggested he participate in the upcoming Teacher Training Program in September at It’s Yoga Toledo. Despite Ryan’s athletic background focused around rugby he had only ever tried yoga a handful of times when visiting Leigh in Vermont. The next night Ryan called his sister back and said , “See you in two weeks,” packed his car and made the 9 hour drive to Toledo and began his It’s Yoga journey. Ryan completed his 200 hour Teacher Training and immediately started facilitating classes for It’s Yoga Toledo. Then in July 2013 he completed his 50 hour Rocket Training with Marie Russel, Rene Henly and Steve Pyka. Ryan continues to share the love of the practice facilitating classes, assisting and leading training all around the globe. “I love The Rocket, it gives me the freedom to float and fly.”
My It's Yoga Inspiration
My It’s Yoga inspiration is the strong international Rocket family. I love facilitating Rocket classes and telling the practitioners that they are moving and breathing in the same flow as all the It’s Yoga centers around the world. Along those same lines I love traveling to different It’s Yoga studios and knowing, no matter what country and what language is spoken, I will have that feeling of hOMe. Triangle…Triángulo…etc is still Trikonasana; we move and breathe together.
Lastly, nothing is more inspiring than flying! Handstands, Bakasana, floating into poses, etc.
Catch you on the mat! Peace, Love, Rocket
