Raama Das is an amazing teacher. He is knowledgeable, caring, genuine, and supportive. — Ambika Cristelli
I am delighted to share the benefit and joy I have received from being a part of Raama’s workshops. He is a delightful presenter with a great sense of humor. He makes the workshops fun and the materials easy to understand with down to earth analogies. I am impressed by his knowledge of the classical yogic teachings and inspired by how he’s devoted and dedicated to living them. His dedication to dear guruji Satchidananda’s teachings is quite heartfelt. — Deborah Bennett
