A professional Yoga Instructor with a special expertise in the field of Hatha / Hatha Flow Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Kids Yoga, Pre-natal Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Yoga Anatomy, Pranayama and Yoga Nidra. First tried out yoga when I was 13 as a part of one of the fitness activities during my schooling. But once grown, got busy with life & career and had stopped practicing yoga. There came a time when life was ruled by stress, tensions and earning so much seemed worthless. That is when I stopped to breathe and realized I was missing on living life. I unrolled my yoga mat and got back to my self-practice.

"Beautiful and challenging experience, was hard to leave..."
Long story short - one month of intense studies and practice melted away like few minutes... Leaving behind the best impressions from our teachers, who put all their energy, experience, passion and love for yoga into every class. They challenged us in every step and they made us grow... My personal practice improved alot and shaped a different approach towards yoga, especially Ashtanga Vinyasa practice. So be ready for a full immersion and you will be rewarded...
Class was of 14 students, which always left a space for personal approach and good adjustments, feeling of being attended and observed on a very individual level, which added a priceless value.
Freshly cooked food every day which made us crave for every single meal and the jumping dolphins in front of your eyes...;)

"Rama yoga School "
the one month at the place was a really intense expirrence, the school really come around alot of knowlegde, and for one month I really Think they have a very Nice scedule. Rama is a very good teacher, all of the teacher are very kind and skilled. After one month, you really have a good foundation for your future yoga life. The placement is amazing, you stand up every morning, starting with yoga while you Can see the morning getting bright just in front of the ocean. I feel very lucky that I choose this place, I learnt so much. it is super hard sometimes, but thats just a part of it, and you Will feel very Proud when you finish, and confident to start teaching. I Will always be gratefull for what the teachers have taught me.

"A lifechanging experience"
I loved everything :) Ramas never ending positive outlook on life, his eagerness to teach us everything he knows, the indian food variety, the location being super amazing for morning yoga overlooking the sea, for evening meditation on the rocks, always helpfull staff, the yoga philosophy lessons, the routine we learned. Rama puts his heart into his school, its his baby, so he is doing everything he can to bring love to that place, the teaching, to students ... ❤️

"Rama School of Yoga 200 YTT"
The teaching and structure of the days was excellent. In the end we were all tired but had received a lot of wonderful experience, both practical and theoretical. There was a lot of time for bonding with the wonderful yogis and teachers as well. Great!

"200 TTC Varkala"
I liked the wide knowledge of all teachers, the food and the location. I highly recommend this school for people who want to go deeper into their own Ashtanga and Hatha praxis in a traditional way and gain some teacher skills for beginners.
Best wishes Eduard

"More than a teacher course, it’s an experience worth having!"
Rama is very generous and caring. He participates and follows up on all activities, which means he is always available to help or make adjustments. By talking to people who chose a different course, I realized that Rama’s attitude and support is not a given.
Rama was very knowledgeable when it cabe to asanas. Anatomy and philosophy teachers were also extremely knowledgeable and dedicated in their fields.
Most TTCs do not have their own place so location can change. In my case, the change was a very pleasant surprise. Absolutely beautiful, peaceful, private, beach-front accommodations. Daily by the ocean practices. Absolutely amazing. Just always double check the location when booking -with any school really.
3. Serious Course
It’s tough getting used to the yogi life-style: waking up at 5am and taking cold showers, but it grows on you. That, combined with the many lessons a day, comes out to be an amazing experience. There is very little down time to go off on your own -but that’s not what I was looking for. This is a rather traditional and serious school, unlike other that accommodate for a lot of extra partying.
Also, this is a very traditional Ashtanga course (no vinyasa flow) and some Hatha (with which I fell in love and totally recommend).

"Unvergessliche und Lebensverändernde Erfahrung"
Mir voller Überzeugung kann ich sagen, dass es eine wunderbare Erfahrung für mich war.
Der Monat war intensiv...mit wunderbaren Menschen und Momenten beschmückt. Ich habe meinen Körper und meine Grenzen besser kennen gelernt und mehr über das Leben eines Yogis erfahren, dafür bin ich sehr dankbar.
Rama macht einen wirklich guten Job, er ist ein super Asthanga Vinyasa Lehrer. Er nimmt sich Zeit, seine Schüler kennen zu lernen und kann die körperlichen Grenzen eines Jeden sehr gut einschätzen, so dass die Lernkurve groß ist. Er puscht, aber nur soviel wie möglich.
Der Unterricht ist sehr gut vorbereiten und strukturiert und wenn die Gruppe nicht mehr aufnahmefähig ist, hat er immer ein paar nette Ideen und Spielchen, wie man die Schüler wieder fit macht. Er nimmt sich sehr viel Zeit alle Posen genau zu erklären und wir haben immer die Möglichkeit viel zu üben.
Üben, üben, üben....das ist hier das Motto. Nach nur einem Monat kann ich von mir sagen, dass ich mich selbstbewusst fühle, selbst Unterricht zu geben. Das ist ein tolles Gefühl.
Ein weiterer Pluspunkt war die unglaublich tolle Lage der Yogaschule. Der Yogaunterricht findet in der Yogahalle im freien statt, direkt am Meer....jeden Morgen hört man die Wellen rauschen wenn man Yoga macht und wenn man eine Abkühlung braucht, dann kann man ins Meer springen. Varkala ist nur 30 Gehminuten entfernt, so dass man am Wochenende oder in den Pausen etwas besorgen kann. Ich kann die Schule nur weiterempfehlen.

"Expérience inoubliable "
L endroit est vraiment splendide, nous pouvons voir et entendre la mer depuis partout dans l'école et tout nos cours se font en extérieur dans le shala. La nourriture vegetarienne est excellente, préparée sur place chaque jour avec des produits frais par une équipe vraiment agreable. Le logement est sommaire mais comfortable et à deux pas de l école. Le planning du mois de cours est très bien planifié .
Les matières enseignées tel que philosophie, anatomie, et yoga sont toutes passionnantes et surtout les professeurs qui les dispensent sont d un professionnalisme et d une gentillesse hors normes . Je recommande sans hésitations l école de Rama !!
Petit plus :
•Rama nous à proposé plusieurs sorties le weekend afin de découvrir la region.
•la cliff nord est à 30 min à pied en longeant la côte avec plein de shop et cafés/restaurants sympa.
•la cérémonie d'ouverture ainsi que de la remise des diplômes sont magnifiques !
Je n oublierai rien de ce mois où j ai tant appris et grandis 🙏
MERCI pour tout Ramasana 😍

"Very good teacher"
First of all the location is just amazing, class facing the sea, meals taken with daulphins view, very quiet, in between coconuts tree forest and the sea. The yoga courses are very intense and Rama is a very good teacher, serious in his job. The anathomy class are very interesting. My room was away from the school in a beatiful place with pleasant neighbours.
