While attending the University of Richmond, Ryan was a member of both the football and track teams. Following his collegiate career in football, Ryan went on to play for the Carolina Panthers. Yoga was an integral part of supporting his athletic career both physically and mentally. Ryan embraces the physical challenges that yoga can provide and enjoys sharing how those physical challenges can lead to a deeper understanding and connection with oneself.

By integrating a spiritual and meditative awareness in his classes, Ryan hopes to inspire students through their own practice to look within themselves to live more mindful compassionate lives.
