Ryan has been teaching in Somerville and Boston since 2008. Once in the field of architecture, he appreciates the spacial and left-brained awareness the practice has to offer, and loves slowing things down to feel something new. He has trained with Barbara Benagh, Judith Laseter, and often quotes Richard Freeman. With great enthusiasm, Ryan brings a light and relaxed energy to things that may otherwise be intimidating.
Join Susan Harris for her Yoga Nidra Workshop
Yoga Nidra, literally yoga sleep, is a deep and powerful form of guided meditation. It induces a state of mind between sleep and wakefulness, and facilitates deep relaxation. Based on ancient Indian meditation traditions, it involves eight stages (internalization, sankalpa, rotation of consciousness, breath awareness, manifestation of opposites, creative visualization, sankalpa, and externalization).
