Meet The Staff
Ryan – Berkeley Manager
Ryan is the manager at our Berkeley location. He has lived in Berkeley for 12 years and worked at Earthly Nutrition for over 10 years. With over 20 years in the health field including as a private yoga instructor, Ayurvedic practitioner, massage therapist, herbalist and cleansing coach, he has a passion for health and enjoys educating people about living a healthy lifestyle.
Ryan first discovered yoga around the age of 16, and he was soon reading everything on alternative health practices he could find. Yoga peaked his interest as he found meditation as way to relax and stay spiritually grounded. The yoga path also led him to become vegetarian, and to experiment with using food as a medicine. In addition, he studies many different massage therapies; such as deep tissue, shiatsu and reflexology. This enhances his awareness of the energy system (or meridians) in the body. His study went on to include an energy healing method called Jin Shin Jitsu.
Wanting to learn more about herbs, Ryan went on to study at Michael Tierra’s East West Herbal School. It was there he discovered Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of holistic healing. Under the guidance of Dr. Cravatta, he dove into this fascinating world. He learned things like pulse diagnosis, and how to prescribe food, herbs, yoga and cleansing in a way to bring balance to each individual. Ayurveda has given him a whole new way to view the world; a way to make sense out of all the knowledge he has accumulated over the years.
Ryan enjoys sharing his knowledge with others, and hearing how surprised they are when a home remedy or herbal supplement he suggested works well for them. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, cooking, yoga, meditation, reading, music, spending time in nature with my wife and staring off into space, contemplating my place in the universe.
