Gentle Yoga will host Indian Yoga master Srivatsa Ramaswami from December 8-24 for The Art of Yoga, a 16-day exploration when Ramaswami will impart the age-old knowledge of a complete yoga practice. Events, some of which are free, include a book signing and lecture, a traditional sun salutation practice at a local park, intensive workshops, trainings, and specialized classes in yoga practice, meditation, and philosophy.
“This is a rare opportunity for Americans to experience the full range of yoga as taught by a master teacher from India,” Gentle Yoga and director of its teacher training programs. “The majority of yoga practiced throughout the world today came from the teacher who trained Ramaswami and Austin has been given the privilege to experience yoga in the purest form. Gentle Yoga is honored to host a genuine Yoga Master.”
Beginning at the age of 15 and continuing for more than 30 years, Ramaswami was a student of Sri T. Krishnamacharya, who is recognized as the most significant influence in imparting authentic knowledge about yoga in the last 50 years. Ramaswami, who has taught yoga worldwide for over 20 years, is the author of several books, including his latest with co-author David Hurwitz Yoga Beneath the Surface: An American Student & His Indian Teacher Discuss Yoga Philosophy and Practice. He has recorded 40 audiocassettes and CDs of Sanskrit chants, which are held as the gold standard for the sutras in India.
