Breathing, Nature, & A Nervous System Regulation Retreat in Los Angeles

Hi everyone!

I am Ryan Williams. My life is divided into two life spans: Before Nervous System Regulation (NSR), and After Nervous System Regulation (NSR). 

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, and those who have joined for outdoor Breathwork in Southern California!

I am thrilled to offer you a FREE Breathwork classes via my podcast. You can also follow the Breathwork with Ryan podcast on iTunes, Spotify, Substack, 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 that sounds familiar, please join me for a one day Nervous System Regulation Retreat. Sign-up at the below to join!

This retreat includes working in categories such as Breathwork, yoga nidra meditation, journaling, affirmation, and sound healing – all of which helped to regulate our nervous systems.

Nervous system regulation teaches us to release stress in a natural way – through inhaling and exhaling. Our bodies are like a reservoir for trapped emotion. Nervous system regulation flushes our systems, clearing the reservoir.

The Nervous System Retreat will help you to: 

  • Find your own language to name your feelings
  • Retrain yourself how to breathe
  • Discover a new sense of calm, peace, and ease
  • Make better decisions for self-supporting behavior
  • Treat yourself more gently, pausing more
  • Learn resilience training, self-affirmation, and autonomy
  • Overcome daily challenges

Come join the Nervous System Regulation Retreat to:

  • Drink less caffeine, alcohol, or sugar drinks
  • Craft a vision around finding more meaningful work
  • Sleep more deeply and to “doomscroll” less on your phone before bedtime
  • Build a new routine around fitness, exercise, or decreasing stress
  • Channel more creativity and releasing the blocks around your artistry
  • Compliment work you’re already doing around mental and nervous system health
  • Relieve dating app obsession, clarifying your vision of a loving partner, and you are tired of inappropriate dating matches

What you’ll experience to help your nervous system:

  • Breathwork
  • Yoga nidra meditation
  • Sound healing
  • Journaling/Affirmation
  • Yoga stretching
  • Hiking
  • Group discussion
  • Nourishing local food

How to prepare for your NSR retreat:

Please bring a yoga mat, blanket, water bottle, hat, and sunscreen.

The retreat will be both indoors and outdoors.

Sometimes we will be lying on our backs for the meditations. Sometimes I play music during the session. All the time it will be fun.

Nervous system regulation helps the mind, body, and soul to heal and recover. Learning nervous system regulation can be easy and fun.

Only 12 spots available, space is limited. Hope to see you there!

About Ryan Williams:

My life is divided into two life spans: Before Nervous System Regulation (BNSR), and After Nervous System Regulation (ANSR). I am certified as a Breathwork teacher, yoga nidra teacher, and meditation instructor. 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 shape our 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.

This retreat takes place in Los Angeles, which is unsettled Tonga land.

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

Much Love,


P.S. If a friend forwarded this article to you, I’m Ryan. Nice to meet you. This is a newsletter about Breathwork, social media, and the healing arts industry. Sign-up for two emails a month, that’s it!
