    EP 002 Randall OLeary The Power of Practice and Rebel Yogis

    Ram Giri Baba aka Randall O'Leary is the founder & director of Swara Yoga Academy. In 2006, after many years studying with his Guru in India, Randall was initiated into the ancient Indian spiritual order of Sadhus and is honoured to share many unique tools from his sacred tradition.On this episode we discuss Randall's entry in to Yoga. The power of physical practice & how important it is to build proper foundations in both life & Yoga. We touch on the nature of Yogi's, who are traditionally "serious rebels". How nothing is off limits when it comes to expanding consciousness. The importance of humility & staying open & curious. Randall gives some great advice to anyone who wants to improve the deeper layers of their being. Please enjoy this wide ranging & free flowing conversation.Randall’s Wisdom from this talk: Advice: Begin with the physical practice.Becoming aware of fragmented energy & learn how to redirect the mental energy towards things in life that are important.Patience: Take a step by step approach to life & to Yoga. Don’t rush it. Make it smooth - make it beautiful.Keep exploring, keep engaging with the practice & it will keep opening.There is room for everyone in Yoga. It’s a sanctuary for everyone. Make it yours.Yogi’s are traditionally serious rebels. Willing to do almost anything to expand themselves & explore.The teacher is there for the student. The teacher is there as a guide to help you find your flow.Yoga is what’s called a Vidya, which means a “timeless knowledge”. It will keep bubbling away in many forms as the ancient tradition of Yoga evolves.Yoga is strong. It can make you as easily as it can break you. Perhaps more easily.The essence of our life force is the breath. Prana or breath is a fundamental part of Yoga & life, make a practice of it.Find a teacher that resonates with you. Perhaps if you are a man, seek a male teacher. Keep going & accept where you are on the path. Over time if Yoga is practiced correctly it will transform the deeper layers of the practitioner. Accept where you are & keep going.Randall’s Upcoming Courses & Offerings:Foundations of Swara Yoga 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Traininghttps://swarayogaacademy.com/200-hour-yoga-teacher-training/ EXPLORE THE MYSTICAL WORLD OF BREATH AND YOGA ENERGETICShttps://swarayogaacademy.com/pranayama-yoga-teacher-training/ About Randall O'Leary:Founder and Director of Swara yogaRandall has been a dedicated explorer of Yoga since 1991.

Inspired through his studies of Tai Qi and Viniyoga, Randall shares his unique approach to Pranayama, which he called Swara Yoga. This system gradually deepens into Advanced Pranayama sequences which allow his students access to a comprehensive, embodied understanding of the infinite power within the breath. Randall’s classes are enriched with philosophy stemming from his studies of Hatha Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda & Indian Mysticism, and are balanced by his unapologetically playful nature and love for Reggae music.In 2006, after many years studying with his Guru in India, Randall was initiated into the ancient Indian spiritual order of Sadhus and is honoured to share many unique tools from his sacred tradition.It is his aim to inspire every student to pursue a practice that is overflowing with energy and joy, that spills out into their world and transforms their relationship with life itself.Find out more about Randall’s off
