Ryan Narayan

About The Teacher

Inspiration comes in many shapes and forms, and for Ryan ‘Narayan’ Nadlonek, much of his musical aesthetic is inspired by his experiences with nature and the beautiful people he has met along his life’s journey. As a musician and yogi, Narayan brings spirituality into all aspects of his life. He began practicing yoga in 2005 while living a surfing lifestyle in Hawaii. The holistic benefits were immediately realized and his yoga practice deepened, leading him to Bhakti Yoga and the practice of kirtan. He followed the seeds of inspiration to find his asana teacher, Shiva Rea, and his devotional sangha, the Gaudiya Vaishnavs. Narayan has been studying piano and drums from an early age, and brings his diverse musical skills into the practice of kirtan. Currently, he performs with The Hanuman Project, in which he plays percussion and produces electronic beats. Also influencing his music and practice is his love for ecstatic dance, contact dance, breakdance, and Shaolin Kung Fu. Narayan has collaborated with many talented and popular kirtan artists including The Kirtaniyas, Govindas and Radha, Sita Devi, Shaman’s Dream, Saul David Raye, DJ Drez, Jim Beckwith and David Newman.
