Meet Ryan Kenny

Ryan Kenny founded Pause in 2015 with his partner Rena with a simple vision – to help people slow down and make space for what matters most. What started as a grassroots, Portland-based effort has evolved into a global movement. Today, Pause is a trusted leader in the modern mindfulness sphere, helping leaders, teams, and organizations unlock their inner resources for resilience.


Beyond his work with Pause, Ryan loves a good cup of coffee, body surfing in the ocean, and spending quality time with his friends and family. His favorite place to meditate, hands down, is in a hot tub.
