Ryan Daniel Smith RYT500, ERYT 200 graduated from Annie Carpenter's SmartFLOW Advanced Teacher Training Program. He states, "I have chosen to teach this method because I believe it works. I have come to know myself on a much deeper level through Annie's teaching method. Her potent understanding of alignment while in practice and mindful exploration of movement in yoga asana has positively changed my body and mindset over the years. I feel SmartFLOW honors the tradition of yoga while blending current scientific knowledge and understanding of the present age. The movement principles offered in this practice are incredible tools and teachers for improving kinesthetic awareness and increasing proprioception, expanding on the ancient wisdom of yoga in a meaningful way. Learning to use a combination of muscular stabilization and skeletal leverage assisted by breath can open fascia, change and improve the human structure. The structural exploration of yoga is an inquiry into one's true nature, bringing us to an awareness of our unconscious habits, physical or otherwise. Asana is a natural gateway to all 8-limbs of yoga. This has been my experience and it is this wisdom I hope to bring to my students."
Additionally, Ryan is a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Therapeutic and Structural Massage and practitioner of Qigong Healing. He works to integrate the best of everything he knows and weave it into an experience that leaves you more open, centered and grounded, as well as offer you his passionate commitment to helping you achieve radiant health and wellbeing.
