Ram is an amazing teacher!
I had the honor of going through his Teacher Training program and it changed my entire life.
I have been practicing Yoga for many years but it was not until this course, did the impact really effect every aspect of my life.
Ram teaches a very authentic yoga and the knowledge he has to offer can be learned in no book.
I recommend his classes, retreats, workshops, and teacher training to any one and everyone.
I completed my RYT-200 with Long Beach School of Yoga. Ram is a very knowledgeable teacher. Ram stays true to the ancient yoga philosophies and his yoga is authentic. I not only learned so much about all things yoga, but throughout these three months I saw a personal transformation within myself. To me, his training is not only about the yoga asanas (postures), but on how to change your life in a positive way based on the yogic and Ayurvedic philosophies. I recommend his training for anyone who is interested in becoming a teacher or even deepening their own understanding of yoga and of themselves.
This course changed the course and direction of my life before I even signed up for the first class. A friend of mine took the same course in the Fall of last year and introduced me to Integral yoga. I loved the practice and knew this was exactly what I was looking for. Ram teaches his students about yoga philosophy and I found that the philosophy of yoga is just as important, if not more so, than the asanas. For me, these ideals rang true with the essence of what, I believe, is in all of the hearts of man and the truth. The teachings are very helpful in navigating through a world filled with different personalities, ego's, differences and disagreements by instilling a sense of calm, peace and unity that is available inside of you that you can tap into in every situation.
I took Ram's class to learn how to teach yoga and increase my own yoga practice. I had no idea how much it would physically change me. I knew it would improve me physically, but I did not know how much it would transform my body. I would highly recommend this course if you are interested in transforming your life into a healthier, happier you!
As a recent graduate of the Long Beach School of Yoga RYT 200hr Teacher Training program, I can confidently say that I am forever changed. Under the professional and loving direction of Ram Bhakt, my yoga practice has deepened in ways that I could never have imagined. I now have a deeper understanding of not only the roots and lineage of this sacred practice, but also of the critical importance of my conscious connection to my breath. Through the beautifully tailored yoga and meditation practices, I was able to seamlessly implement mindfulness into every aspect of my life, not just when on the mat. My self-awareness and ability to be fully present have increased in a way that will surely guide me as I continue to grow and expand in this life. After completing this course, I feel confident and excited to share my knowledge of yoga, meditation and Ayurveda with others as a certified yoga instructor. I hold such gratitude in my heart for Ram and for his guidance on this part of my journey. I am honored to have been a student at the LBSOY and would highly recommend this course to all. If you are seeking a deeper understanding of yoga or, more importantly, a deeper connection to your most sacred self, look no further. Come, find your tribe, find your voice, find yourself.
My experience was life changing, especially because I joined the course mainly to further my own knowledge and practice with yoga and not specifically to teach. As the old saying goes, "If you want to learn about something, teach it!" And as I embarked on this journey, I was blown away by how it transforms you on every level: mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically in a matter of months. And as life changing as it is, Ram, was the perfect instructor for me during my training, being ever so patient and supportive as I "processed" breaking out of old patterns and letting go to make room for the "new & unexpected" as a Yoga Teacher! With his support, I can genuinely say, he reignited a spark of why I wanted to teach yoga in the first place, for the "healing & transformation" that is not only "taught" in his class, but also felt wholeheartedly. I highly recommend this training course with Ram, he is straight to the point, no sugar coating, gives you to the fundamentals and provides all the resources, the rest is up to you to stay committed to your soul's purpose!
Ram provided a small, intimate setting with personalized attention. Ram brings his knowledge and life experience of yogic culture and lifestyle to his students. I appreciate his focus on the spiritual practice of yoga devoting equal parts time to meditation and asana. If you are looking for a training that focuses on the heart of yoga, connecting to your soul, and the soul of the world...give this gift to yourself.
