Ryan Cunningham, E-RYT 500, YACEP, believes that yoga is a path towards cultivating wellness — which for them involves a daily practice of breathing, meditation, and movement. They spent many years attending Barbara Benagh’s weekly teachers’ class as well as Barbara’s course entitled “The Art of Teaching.” Over the past four years, Ryan’s studies have primarily been focused on dharma, biomechanics, and yoga therapy with Tom Alden. They also studied with Judith Lasater, Leslie Kaminoff, and Ethan Nichtern.
In 2008, Ryan began leading group and private yoga classes, teaching students the skills that enable them to practice for themselves. In 2016, they became the owner of Bow Street Yoga in Somerville, Massachusetts, teaching group classes and conducting a year-long yoga studies course and mentorship program. Ryan is on faculty at Berklee College of Music and hosts/produces two yoga podcasts: Unrolled with co-host Kate Robinson; and Just Yoga.
