My Studies with Srivatsa Ramaswami

I first heard about Srivatsa Ramaswami in 2003 when I was studying Viniyoga with Paul Harvey and we were given a small book on the Yoga Sutras by Ramaswami. In 2006 I bought The Complete Book of Vinyasa Yoga by Ramaswami and after a search on the web booked a Vinyasa Krama Yoga Core Vinyasa teacher training course with him in Chicago in November 2007. In the evenings we studied the Yoga Sutras with Ramaswami and had a Mantra Yoga workshop.

I followed this up with a 10 day study course of 60 hours in India on The Yoga of Sri T. Krishnamacharya during December 2007/January 2008. This was arranged by LMU and was held at Purna Holistic Centre in South Delhi. We had three sessions a day covering Vinyasa Krama, Yoga Therapy and Yoga Sutras.

In October 2008 I attended Ramaswami’s 200 Hour teacher training at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
