About The Teacher
Krishna was born and raised in a peaceful mountainous setting in the Western Himalayas of North India, where he was introduced to yoga at an early age. He started his practice at age 15, under the guidance of his Guru Ji Sri Sitaram Das Baba Ji from the lineage of the Ramananda Sampradaya, a Hindu Spiritual Order of Vaishnavites. Upon initiation into the monastic order he started teaching in different ashrams and yoga schools around India until founding Aranya Yoga.
For the last 10 years, Krisha Das Baba has been directing yoga classes, the 200 hour teacher training course, and various workshops on meditation, healing and ayurvedic cooking in Gokarna, Palolem and Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh.
His practice has helped transform the lives of many students throughout his 30 years of teaching, deepening and strengthening their practice through his dedicated and individualized training.
He has practiced yoga for the past four decades and embeds the principals of the practice within his daily life. When asked about his yogic philosophy, he says he will not try to define it because it has already been defined enough throughout history. Krishna’s love for yoga is simple and rests within the tranquil, cleansing nature of the practice. He says that it is possible to achieve a longer life along with a sense of community and enchantment through the practice of yoga. Krishna’s hope is to convey this aspect of the practice to his students. He says yoga provides peace of mind, good health and compassion through sharing and friendship with others.
Krishna also enjoys spending his time conversing with visitors about his early life spent living in an ashram and his vast knowledge of Indian culture and history. After spending twenty years literally walking throughout the country gathering knowledge, making friends and spreading peace, Krishna’s compelling and enthusiastic storytelling alone makes Aranya Yoga an absolute gem.
