In our traditional yoga ashrams in India and in the Netherlands and in our affiliated centers worldwide, we teach the authentic teachings of classical yoga without altering them. Our goal is to guide you towards the practice of Yam and Niyam as a way of the life and to help you to find balance and peace in life .

We want to help people increase their spiritual awareness and we want to encourage all of our students to spread their knowledge of yoga and their understanding of love, compassion and peace.

Our Team

Yogi Ram Director Arhanta Yoga AshramsYogi Ram is the director of our yoga ashrams. 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 18 years at various renowned schools reflects in his teachings. He believes that every body and mind is different thus every asana will be performed differently by each individual. He corrects, adjusts and provides personal attention to every student in his classes.

Yogi Ram has valuable experience in running yoga schools in India and Europe. He has been interviewed by main stream TV channels and magazines like Om TV, Yoga Magazine, Yogakrant, etc. He also writes for popular yoga blogs and magazines. Yogi Ram teaches intensively for 10 months in India and Europe and spends rest of the time with his wife and two children in their countryside home.
