Ryan has been practicing with us since May!
Where are you from?
Originally Pennsylvania. Doctorate school led me to Atlanta, GA, then after graduation I moved to Knoxville.
How long have you lived in Knoxville and what you like about living here?
February ’17. I love the smokies! I am an avid hiker, and I enjoy getting lost in the mountains.
When and why did you begin practicing yoga?
I took some classes while in Atlanta. I didn’t know what yoga was about. When I moved to Knoxville, I wanted to commit to doing it regularly. I read a ton of its healing benefits. I wanted to personally feel them. I was guided to Blue Ridge by the universe, and I am very grateful I am here.
What are you grateful for this Thanksgiving season?
I am grateful for my health and the opportunity to serve this community on their own health journey.
