I initially encountered Srivatsa Ramaswami on his first visit to the UK in 2007, when he taught in Edinburgh. Discovering that he was a both a direct student of TKV Krishnamacharya, the father of contemporary Hatha Yoga, as well as having studied with him for longer than anyone else, I knew it was an opportunity not to be missed.
That immersion in the Vinyasa Krama method and his tutelage completely and instantly transformed my experience of and practice of Yoga. Studying with him and with Debbie Mills, one of his senior students, wove together many strands of yoga practice, wisdom and philosophy that previously seemed disparate. Numerous years of intensive study and practice of Vinyasa Krama, deepened and enriched my Yoga study, teaching and life in ways I couldn’t have anticipated and I am deeply grateful to have encountered Ramaswami and his teaching.
I was delighted to find that he was once again teaching in Europe this autumn and once again jumped at the chance of further study with him. Looking much younger than his 79 years and with remarkable levels of energy, clarity and articulation, Ramaswami teaches from an enormous depth of experience and knowledge accumulated from his 33 years direct study with the great Yogi Krishnamacharya. I was once again inspired by direct study with him and enthused to pass on these teachings.
Thank you sir!
