Twice in the past year we’ve (sadly) had to postpone Matt’s visit to Malmö due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We have now agreed on the new (tentative) dates of 27-30th December for his workshop here. Ashtanga Yoga Malmö is very honoured and happy to welcome Matt Ryan to our shala and we look forward to him sharing his long term experience of Ashtanga yoga and Zen Buddhism with us. Matt will teach Mysore style classes in the mornings followed by afternoon workshops with including both Zen meditation and asana practice. The full programme with exact dates and timings will be announced below soon.
Matt Ryan, originally from Manchester, has been practicing and teaching Ashtanga Yoga for over 20 years. In addition to having his own shala in Manchester for many years he has taught yoga around the world, most lately in the Venice Beach area of Los Angeles, California. In 2020 he returned to the UK where he is now settling in Margate. Matt is married to Lina from Lund, and thus has links to Sweden which he frequently visits to see family and friends.
10 years ago Matt started studying Zen Buddhism which foundations lie in the daily sitting practice of Zazen. When he added Zazen to his Ashtanga practice he noticed an immediate effect resulting in a steadier more focused mind whilst moving through the asana sequences – the end result being a sense of in the moment presence coupled with a strong flexible mind & body. In addition to his experiences from the Ashtanga Yoga practice he will give an introduction to Zazen during his workshop in Malmö.
Matt, although he has studied the Ashtanga practice in Mysore, prefers to keep his teachings completely secular. For more information about Matt visit his website https://mattryan.yoga/about/
