Sri Ram's classes are fed by a daily commitment to yogic practices on and off the mat. Having trained locally in Olympia with Nathan Hayes at Living Spirit Yoga he is grounded in the ability to listen intuitively to the body and instruct others in this ability. Following a call to deepen his practice he received further intensive training through the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organization in both Canada and India. This traditional ashram based learning has tied him to a rich lineage of teachers and provided a framework to bring authentic yogic practices and knowledge to the Western classroom. Sri Ram believes a yoga teacher's responsibility is to guide his yogic students into becoming yogic practitioners.
