About Ricky Brennan

Ricky has trained in many styles of yoga. He studied Ashtanga Yoga with Mark Darby (Owner of Sattva Yoga Shala in Montreal), one of only three Canadians certified by the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. He furthered his understanding in this method with one on one mentorship from the owner of True Yoga in Edmonton, Melissa Wasserfall. He received further certification from her in Vinyasa Yoga.

Ricky has travelled extensively to train with Paul Grilley, known well for Yin Yoga and anatomy training. He also immersed immensely with Bikram Choudhury, famous for popularizing Hot Yoga worldwide.

Ricky spends the majority of his time teaching more than twenty classes a week at many studios. He can be found primarily at Yogalife Studios and Bliss Yoga Spa. He teaches with a tremendous amount of heart and passion. He has a flair for inspiring individuals to work hard and realizing their highest potential. 

About This Retreat

I have been teaching more than 20 classes a week in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada since 2005. I have taught and continue to teach individuals at any stage in their journey. I teach and practice many styles of yoga including ashtanga yoga, vinyasa (flow) yoga, Bikram’s (hot) yoga, hatha yoga, yin yoga, arm balances, inversions and more.

Living in Canada we experience long winters and can benefit from a getaway to warmer climates. A week with me will definitely help make it through the frigid season. I am passionate about yoga and have dedicated a significant amount of time learning the craft. I can’t wait to share my knowledge, challenge and help individuals take their practice to new levels. This will be done through deep introspective work that comes from regular practice. I will share active and passive approaches to aid in ones development and healing.
