Bio Dublin Hatha Yoga Teacher Michael Ryan
Michael Ryan has been practicing yoga since his teens, and successfully completed the 200 hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher Training course with Dave Curtis in 2006.
Michael also studied Naturopathy, nutrition and herbs and is also a qualified Reiki master.
Michael partakes in further ongoing yoga training and in 2006 completed a 40 hour yoga teachers intensive with Shiva Rea. In 2008, Michael completed a week’s teachers immersion with John Friend.
He regularly visits yoga teachers and classes in Los Angeles which brings further inspiration and energy to his own teaching.
Michael’s teaching style draws from his wide experience of Hatha yoga, Somatics, Vinyasa flow and John Friend’s heart-opening practice of Anusara yoga.
The Anusara approach to yoga has a strong influence in Michael’s hatha yoga classes.
Michael is also a dedicated meditation practitioner and draws on his vipasana and T.M. meditation training to bring a depth and presence to each class.
Michael is mindful of each individual’s need to find their own balance in their yoga practice.
Michael’s retreats are suitable for all ages and all levels of ability from complete beginners to advanced.
He gently guides and encourages each student to explore and open to their fullest potential.
Michael leads a flowing Hatha practice with a strong emphasis on integrating physical, mental and emotional wellness.
Using the breath and integrating core strength and awareness into the practice we step into a deeper sense of aliveness.
Yoga is an opportunity to balance our entire being; the physical, emotional, mental and energetic. It is a tool which moves us further along in our journey; yoga opens us to the present moment and our perfection in that moment, allowing us to connect with “a deeper sense of stillness and in essence a deeper sense of who we are.”
Michael holds a space which is creative, inspiring and fun.
