About Your Yoga TeachersWhen Ramanand was 12, his father introduced him to yoga philosophy and asana, and he learned early on to embrace yoga with a childlike joyousness and delight. In 1968, after coming across a few other yoga teachers, Ramanand became a student of Guruji, Yogacharya Shri B.K.S. Iyengar, who profoundly influenced the strength, discipline, deepening, understanding, confidence and enthusiasm of his asana and pranayama practice. Then in 1994 Ramanand intensified his pursuit of truth and knowledge by studying Vedanta philosophy under H.H. Swami Dayananda Saraswati. He also considers J. Krishnamurti to be a major influence on his thinking.
Ramanand’s extensive, distinct, and lifelong yoga experiences inform both his yoga practice and his teaching style. He is recognized and respected internationally and many in the yoga community regard him as one of the world’s foremost yoga instructors. Ramanand actively encourages both learning and sharing of ideas amongst his students and peers. Furthermore, he is especially skilled as an innovator in the use of props and in working with students who have special needs; however he does not teach therapeutic yoga.
Ramanand has a special interest in the effects of Sound on yoga practice. He offers a number of workshops on Yoga and Sound with his friend, the outstanding North Indian Classical vocalist, Pandit Mukesh Desai, a senior disciple of world renowned Pandit Jasraj.
Hart Lazer is internationally recognized as a teacher of yoga teachers. Systematic, profound, thorough, sensitive and challenging, he is a master at teaching the mechanics of asana, having studied closely with Iyengar teacher Ramanand Patel for many years and undertaken a serious study of Ashtanga yoga. Hart Lazer offers his students the experience gained from his unique life story, from boyhood in a Jewish rabbinical school through a career in counseling and over 25 years as a yoga teacher and practitioner. In recent years Hart has explored the effects of Buddhism, yoga and trauma on the body and has developed a multi-dimensional approach to working with human difficulties.
