Sitaram Das has always found great peace and joy in yoga, ever since it was introduced to him as a young boy by his
grandmother. Growing up, he always felt drawn to spiritual teachings; books, teachers, and situations that would nourish his growth and transformation. While exploring many paths as a teen, he eventually realized that he could truly trust yoga to take him to the heights that he wished to reach. fifteen+ years later, he still finds this to be true. As a teacher, he shares his experience with heart-felt wisdom, using metaphor, story-telling, and a dry humor to convey even the most complex and subtle of topics. Steeped in the traditions of Tantric Hinduism, Buddhism, Ayurveda, Bhakti Yoga, and Vedic Mythology, he strives to use his experience to offer support for his students, and remind them of their true nature, inherent goodness, and boundless strength. Sitar holds several certifications in yoga and meditation training, and is grateful to the amazing teachers who have guided him. He teaches yoga teacher trainings, workshops and classes in the Philadelphia area, and produces the podcast "Satsang with Sitar", which has been recognized as "New and Noteworthy" on iTunes. It is also available on Stitcher and his website, sitaramdas.com.

Ashtanga yoga is the best full-body physical workout you and your loved
ones will ever experience along with wonderful meditative benefits. I teach in the traditional Mysore style with hands-on assists, great for both beginners and for those who already have an established practice since you only progress into the practice as you are able. We will also largely focus on proper breathing and correct alignment, both not always taught properly in classes. I also teach hands-on assists to teachers.
In 8 months one of my students, whom had no prior yoga experience, lost 70 pounds. Of course he worked hard to achieve that result along with full-body strengthening, toning and increased physical endurance. Another student was thrilled that she dropped a full dress size practicing with me 2 times a week over 2 months. Other students tell me how their back problems, breathing and posture have improved. Of course you will also gain balance in your life and a quiet mind from the meditative part of the practice.
