Ryan Lee is supporting Silence Of Souls Meditation center by sharing his yoga teacher experience.
He left Canada 4 years ago to pursue the path of Yoga. He spent his 20s studying the physical body, exercise, and health completing a degree in Kinesiology then worked in the health field for 2 years. The spiritual path called him to India where he completed a 200 hour training in Hatha Yoga from Rishikesh Yog Peeth in October 2015. He then set out to teach as many people as possible. Equipped with an in depth understanding of human anatomy and physiology the transition to teaching yoga was seamless and a new passion was found. He taught in many settings over the next few years: hostels, beaches and parks to begin with before finding a position in a Yoga Retreat Center in Australia.
He spent 6 months teaching here to students of all different experience levels and received mentorship from many experienced teachers. After travels through South East Asia, where he taught in several resorts and hostels, he returned to India to deepen his yoga studies. In India he found his teacher and spent several months in intense practice of Iyengar yoga, furthering his understanding of the yoga poses and the body. His India travels eventually led him to retreat into the peaceful nature at Silence of Souls (SOS) Ashram, a place to deepen his yoga and meditation studies with Vimal (SOS founder) as his mentor and friend. He is now excited to share his experience while teaching at the upcoming Yoga and Meditation retreat at SOS. 
 
Meditation has also been a major focus during his travels, completing 4 Vipassana courses in the Tradition of S.N. Goenka and a 21 day Mindfulness Meditation Retreat In Thailand.
 
Ryan teaches Hatha yoga with in depth alignment cues, while still maintaining a meditative flow. During the retreat the morning classes will be slower paced traditional Hatha yoga with more emphasis on alignment while the evening classes will be a faster paced Hatha flow.

Her extraordinary journey started in 2011 when she left her day job for deeper search of self and landed up in small village of Indian Himalayas, unaware that this small village will become her home and SADHANA place, after few years. Before that she was living a metro life and was working in technology industry and served  various MNC's like Reliance, Infosys, IBM and Tech Mahindra . But she says that the deeper meaning of life was still missing.

In 2014 she moved to her small house in this village for further SADHANA and to go more deep inside. And the mystery started unfolding it's patterns . With more deep insight and meditation visions, she decided to paint these visions and thus the art journey started.

Later to expand her horizon did a course in Indian Art History and also learned painting skills from masters. 

For most of her art work she has chosen traditional painting methods by working on oils and acrylics . Her Art work is based on the context of Vedic Indian, ancient scripture, philosophy which covers explanation of cosmic and personal consciousness, illusion and reality, ignorance and knowledge. Practical application of spirituality and the preparation for one’s final journey is widely seen in her work which also indicates approaches to  attain immortality – freedom from the cycle of birth and death.

Now she is meditation teacher, artist and co-founder of Silence Of Souls Art and Meditation Center which is a place for various seekers, musicians and creative people from all over the world.

Her art work is published in literary books and  featured in various magazines.
