Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient system of yoga that was taught by Vamana Rishi in the Yoga Korunta. This text was imparted to Sri T. Krishnamacharya in the early 1900’s by his Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari, and was later passed down to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009), the founder of the Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India. Ashtanga is a daily method of yoga involving synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures. This process produces intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The results are improved circulation, a light and strong body and a calm mind. Ashtanga is traditionally taught in the “Mysore” style: a supervised self-practice. The same series of asanas (poses) are practiced each day. New poses are introduced by the teacher once the student memorizes and becomes proficient in the previous asanas in the sequence. People of all ages and health can practice Ashtanga. A student works with the teacher to advance at their own rate.


Ryan began his exploration of eastern contemplative practices in 2009. The importance of proper spinal alignment and mudra in the seated meditation posture of the Soto Zen tradition became a gateway to broader interest in the effects of the physical body on the meditative state. In 2013 he continued zazen practice at the Austin Zen Center (Austin, TX) while simultaneously cultivating a daily practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Recognizing it as a comprehensive system for the pursuance of integration of being, he transitioned to the sole practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa under the guidance of Noah Williams of Ashtanga Yoga Nilayam (Los Angeles, CA) from 2015 to 2016 and later received the methods of Richard Freeman, Mary Taylor and Ty Landrum as taught by The Yoga Workshop (Boulder, CO) from 2017 to present.

In 2018, Ryan was given the blessings of his teachers to teach Mysore-style (supervised self-practice) Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Ryan currently resides in Lubbock, TX, teaching a morning Mysore-style program hosted by HWY108 Yoga Shala.
