Balarama Chandra das
Balarama Chandra was born into a family of soft hearted Native American and Mexican farm workers. Inner strength through struggle and seeking love in all things were his caring parents. He found new vibrance in life once he heard the voice and conversation of Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. Like brush in a wildfire he was consumed by the vast wisdom of the Vedic vision of life and the cultural practices of Yoga and Ayurveda. These arts enticed him to spend the next 8 years immersed in monastic living and spiritual practice. Currently, unrestricted by form, his study continues to find no end while sharing whatever fresh and ripe fruits he has with anyone who comes close, is feeling hunger, or desires to taste new things. Balarama Chandra currently focuses his professional practice on Ayurvedic Psychology and Habit Reformation through positive expression and the simple means of yoga, breath, and diet. He loves facilitating the conversation of self transformation and dharma via international educational trainings, retreats, and personal counseling. Balarama is a true pleasure to study with as he has the dynamic ability to make the seemingly complicated - practical, humorous and exciting.
Luis was born in the dry, hot April winds of Texas. His mother, a teacher and poet, raised Luis and his siblings in her native land of Missouri. Seeking to understand things both beyond and within himself, Luis set off before college to Mexico. This journey led him through the lands of his people and eventually to the lands of the Mayan people of Guatemala. Here he spent several years living and learning with the people of Guatemala. He learned about the spirit and traditions of the land and the struggle to keep things alive. After receiving a degree in Fine Arts and Language Luis began to travel the world. His journey eventually took him to Asia. It was there that he was introduced to the rich traditions of Yoga and Ayurveda. Studying and living in Nepal luis developed further sensitivity and appreciation for these Arts. Returning to Guatemala he has found that the similarities between the ancient visions of intact peoples has much to offer the world. Luis continues to study, learn and share about this vision. His highest aspiration is to share with others in a spirit of community for the greater good of all.
