Rian grew up on the Big Island of Hawaii in a small town called Waikoloa and currently resides in Manhattan Beach, CA. From a very young age he found a passion for art and performance. That passion was strongly cultivated by his parents as they encouraged him to constantly explore new ways of self-expression and creativity. Whether it was through team sports, music, dancing hula, surfing, martial arts or acting, Rian was constantly immersed in activities that exercised both his mind and body.
In 2015, Rian began studying yoga at The Yoga Loft in Manhattan Beach. It wasn’t long before he realized the deep love he felt for his practice and quickly enrolled in the Yoga Mittra Teacher Training Program; where he received his 200hr certification. Since then, Rian has been on a constant journey seeking new ways to strengthen and deepen his practice both spiritually and physically. In his classes he mixes in his martial arts and hula background to create a uniquely strong, dynamic and beautiful flow that is approachable to any yogi. Rian’s ultimate goal is to help his fellow yogis find balance and harmony in all aspects of their life on and off the mat.
