Yogi Ram is the director of Arhanta Yoga Ashrams (India & Netherlands). He was born in India in a spiritual Jain family. His yoga and vedic philosophy education started at the age of 8 years as a part of his primary school education. In his secondary and high school he studied ancient scriptures like Agams, Vedas, Puranas, Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipkia, Gheranda Samhita, Yoga Vasistha, Yoga Ratnavali, Shiva Samhita, etc in depth. After high school he continued his yoga education and practice under famous teachers like Guru Ramananda (Swami Sivananda lineage), Swami Premananda, Shri Shamboo, etc.
He assisted and worked with a variety of yoga teachers in North and South India. During this period he observed that most of the teachers do not correct efficiently and sometimes push students towards injuries due to lack of proper understanding of anatomy and physiology. Therefore he developed a keen interest in anatomy and physiology and studied with renowned teachers like Ted Willemsen and Nik Hills. He understood the differences in individual bodies and minds and developed efficient correction and modification techniques to suit every individual. He is also a registered ERYT 500 with Yoga Alliance and few other yoga federations.
Yogi Ram has been teaching yoga and philosophy extensively since 1998. He came to the Netherlands in 2007 and taught extensively throughout Europe. His teaching experience of over 19 years at various renowned schools reflects in his teachings. He is also the author of Hatha Yoga for Teachers & Practitioners
