DT 033: Becoming Balance with Daniel Rama

By Henry Winslow, Yoga Student and Teacher

Born of a background in functional anatomy and blessed by the good fortune of maturing in a traditional Hatha Yoga ashram, international yoga teacher Daniel Rama is known for bringing a powerful balance of both new and old. His story is one of turning tremendous pain and suffering into opportunity for powerful personal transformation. Through a series of what he calls “at-first unfortunate events,” the problem child born with the name Daniel De France became Daniel Rama, teacher of teachers. In this episode, you'll hear from Rama on: The two fundamentally life-altering lessons he learned during his first two weeks living in at the Sivananda ashram What stories, mythology, and poetic language can teach us about ourselves and the philosophy of life How feeling totally and utterly alone set Rama up to receive the teachings of yoga Why Rama changed his mind about the practice of bramacharya, and how partnership has expanded his consciousness and joy  Announcements: Join me this fall for workshops in NYC (Yoga & Fitness Herald Square) and Richmond, VA (The Yoga Dojo + Hot Yoga Richmond): henrywins.com/events Apply to the Jan 2019 200-hour teacher training at Lighthouse Yoga School, and get $100 OFF your tuition with referral code HENRYWINS: henrywins.com/events Links from this episode: Inner Engineering: A Yogi's Guide to Joy by Sadhguru — Grab a copy of Rama's recommended book Get in touch with Rama: danielrama.com — Learn more about Rama's online and offline programs @danielrama_ on Instagram Daniel Rama Yoga Youtube channel
