Yogi Ram is a Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher, and Continuing Education Provider
Yogi Ram, the founder of Himalayan Yog Ashram, was born in Rishikesh and raised in a traditional Hindu Brahmin family where he gained the knowledge of Indian traditions as a part of his life. Since he was fortunate to grow up in the company of saints and Yogis, so at a very young age, he felt a strong urge to delve deeper into the mysteries of nature and life.
The turning point that drove him towards a holistic yogic life took place in his early twenties. While he was establishing his music business, Ram realized that his ‘modern life ambitions’ were not giving him the quality of life he was looking for. He felt no peace and contentment in the modern life and so he returned to his traditional roots and underwent a long period of intense yoga Sadhana and self-study.
