Risto Duggan
Yoga Instructor

Risto Duggan is a Vancouver based yoga teacher with a focus on healing through alignment, engagement, and breath. His background as a semi-professional multi-sport athlete left his body broken and battered. 


With 9 broken bones, a bad hip and an arthritic back he was in need of some mindful healing. On his 40th birthday he took his first yoga class and his life changed dramatically.

Since completing his 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2007, he has built a strong following of students who attend his Rocket, Yin classes and Workshops.


The main focus is on healing the body. Releasing tension through a strong practice focussing on the breath, and building true strength. Risto's known for his quality adjustments, positive guidance, and playful inversions.
