Ryan Leier

A favourite in Victoria and at the Victoria Yoga Conference, Ryan Leier joins us once again.  Passionate and inspirational, Ryan Leier brings a creative energy to every class he teaches; whether in his own One Yoga studios or as an ambassador of yoga to communities around the world. Equally devoted to continuing his studies as to teaching, his distinct expression of ancient traditions touches his students’ hearts. Ryan’s innovative spirit has led him to create Vinyasa Yoga for Youth, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth through the practice of yoga.

What I like most about the VYC is that it is local, and in one of my favourite cities on the Planet.  It’s always good to get there and see old friends.
