His is an Ambassador to the Operation-Shanti charity which is based in Mysore South India, organising fund raising events.
I cannot recommend Matt Ryan yoga enough. I met Matt during a difficult time in my life both physically and mentally and as a complete yoga novice. I like to say his practice saved my life. He helped to heal my body post surgery and my mind helping me transition from a stressed anxious state to calm, composed and strong. I went from being a total beginner to a competent yogi in a very short period of time. Who knew I could be so flexible – not me! I still practice our exact routine weekly even though we now live 5000 miles apart! Five stars MattJulie Neville Miami USA
