Episode details

Hi, I am Ryan Williams. My life is divided into two life spans: Before Nervous System Regulation (NSR), and After Nervous System Regulation (NSR). I write about NSR, social media, and the healing arts industry.

I'm grateful for you and this community. Thanks to everyone who practiced Breathwork with me over Zoom since the first year of the pandemic.

I am thrilled to now offer FREE Breathwork classes via my podcast. You can listen right here via Substack. You can also follow the Breathwork with Ryan podcast on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, or anywhere else you listen to podcasts.

Have you been feeling stressed out with family, over-exhausted from the never-ending pandemic, or seeking a way to treat your insomnia? If you are curious about the type of impact Breathwork can have on burnout, stress, and emotional exhaustion Breathwork teaches us to release stress in a natural way – through exhaling.

And a big thanks to everyone who came out on January 6th in Los Angeles for the full moon Breathwork with Ryan launch party, under the stars in West L.A.!

I taught a combo of both Breathwork with a deep relaxation meditation. Afterwards breathers went into chill mode. It was incredible to teach on a chilly California night.

About Ryan Williams:

I am a certified as a Breathwork teacher, yoga nidra teacher, and meditation instructor.

My life is divided into two life spans: Before Nervous System Regulation (BNSR), and After Nervous System Regulation (ANSR). You may be familiar with my first book, The Influencer Economy, and a podcast of a similar name.

After working in social media for Disney, Machinima, and many tech startups to help spread their stories, I now use my skills to further my mission: helping others learn how to regulate their nervous systems. 

My previous career prepared me very well for this path. My first book, The Influencer Economy, details the emerging economy of social media influencers that our shape culture today. I have interviewed media personalities such as Larry King, Seth Godin, Jemele Hill, and Willie Geist. 

I host the podcast, Breathwork with Ryan Williams, and write an email newsletter, Nervous System with Ryan Williams.

As always feel free to respond, I’d love to hear from you. 

Much Love,
