Meet the Director

Ram Jain
ERYT 500 Yoga Alliance

Ram Jain (E-RYT 500 , 40,000 hours of teaching experience)

Ram Jain has served for more than 21 years in the field of yoga and philosophy teaching. Ram was born in India, in a strict Jain Hindu family. His yoga and Vedic philosophy education started at the age of eight years as he was sent to a Vedic school for his formal education. Where he studied yoga, vedas and other major ancient Indian scriptures for next eight years with traditional teachers.

In 2007, Ram came to Netherlands. Due to the language barrier and the lack of any contacts, he did not find any job for one year. Struggling to survive, in 2008 he started teaching yoga to four students in his room. His small class has now developed into two large yoga ashrams: Arhanta Yoga Ashrams (India and The Netherlands), spread over 17 acres and 4 acres of land.

Presently he trains over 2000 yoga teachers every year from all over the world. During his 21 years of teaching career, he has worked with various anatomy and physiology experts and has developed unique teaching, adjustment, and modification techniques.

Often called as 'the story teller', Ram is loved for his ability to explain complex concepts in simple words with the help of humorous stories. His mission is to help people realize their potential and live more conscious & prosperous life.

Success Stories


The Netherlands

My yoga teacher told me one day that going to Arhanta Yoga ashram teacher training is a special gift I would give to myself, today I can confirm it. This is a very special place. Teachers are really good, very knowledgeable and professional.  It is an amazing experience. Don't miss this chance."



This TTC fulfilled all my expectations. I want to emphasize specially the high quality of both content & methods of the teachers. None of the courses I have done before meet the high standards in terms of content, methods and organization the Arhanta team provided. I am really impressed! I recommend it very much."



I really enjoyed the method of teaching of the course. I saw my development and growth day by day. It is an intense experience and at the same time with pleasure and good moments and laughter. The teachers are one of the strongest points of the course, they know how to transmit the content in an easy and clear way. Now I am confident to start my classes, highly recommended if you want to learn to teach yoga! "


The Netherlands

This course was recommended to me by a friend who did the same course here in 2016.  The setup of the course is incredible, the teachers are fantastic. You can see and feel yourself progressively improve. The teachers are fully tuned into the group giving it all they need. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is ready to dive into yoga or is ready to look at him- or herself".



I am very grateful to my friend Laura who recommended me this school. Arhanta Yoga provided everything I was looking for. After many years practicing yoga I finally got the deep knowledge that I was looking for. The teachers are more than professional and the ashram is really peaceful. I highly recommend this life changing experience".

I am new to yoga..

You will learn and built up everything from beginning so you will have a solid foundation to start your yoga and teaching journey. 

I am not very flexible..

A flexible mind is more important than a flexible body. No one can do every posture, everyone has their own limitations. It is not necessary to be able to do all fancy postures, but ​ much more important to ​understand​ the concepts and teachings.

May be I am too old..

We define 'Old' as the state of fitness level of the body. There is no age to be old. Sometimes a student of 60+ is more fit and willing to work hard than a student of 30 years. If you are fit and willing to work hard than you are fit for this course.

I have / had an injury..

The course is meant to help you gain knowledge and skills about yoga and how to teach it. If an injury stops you from doing certain asanas, it is not a problem. If you are willing to accept your challenges and limitation you will be successful with this course.

I am pregnant..

We generally recommend caution to pregnant women as this course is physically and mentally demanding. But in the past we have had many pregnant women who finished the course successfully. So if your doctor allows you to do the course and you take complete responsibility of your well being, we can accept you to the course. 

My English is not very good..

As most of the students are from different countries the course is taught in basic English, if you can read and understand an English newspaper then your English level is sufficient to follow the course.

Why should I study at a yoga ashram?

How are the meals at the ashram?

Daily three meals are provided in buffet style. The meals are organic and vegan, prepared with love and compassion.
