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. His parents strongly cultivated that passion as they encouraged him to explore new ways of self-expression and creativity continually. Whether through team sports, music, dancing the hula, surfing, martial arts, or acting, Rian was immersed continuously 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 spiritually and physically. In his classes, he mixes in his martial arts and hula background to create a uniquely robust, dynamic, and beautiful flow 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.
