Description

Ramakrishna and Avi dive into a conversation about the nature of God, of answering difficult questions at a young age. Ramakrishna shares about his experience meeting Swami Satchidananda and being an early pioneer of Integral Yoga. A builder, inventor, yoga teacher, mountaineer, dancer, poet and grandfather. There is a wealth of life experience and value to unpack.

Ramakrishna began to study yoga in 1968, was a founding member of the San Fransisco IYI in 1970, and the first Intregral Yoga country ashram, Yogaville West in 1972. In 1979 he and his young family were sent to Virginia to help in founding Satchidananda Ashram Yogaville, and he has made a career of construction since that time.
