Blending Inner Peace and Dynamic Action

One of the great insights presented in the Bhagavad Gita is that inner peace and dynamic activity can coexist. In fact, we profoundly elevate the quality of actions by first being anchored in inner peace– “Yogasthah kuru karmāṇi” (Bhagavad Gita 2.48). In this Yoginsight episode, we explore how introspective practices in yoga (antaranga sādhana) are not merely passive practices; they energize the system and imbue our actions with extraordinary potency.

He continued to deepen his study and practice under the guidance of several Masters including Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Yoga Siromani Krishan Verma, Yogacharya Srivatsa Ramaswami and Swami Bodhananda Saraswati.

In 2019, Shriram and his wife Ekaterina co-founded the non-profit Institution EkaShri Schools of Yoga with a mission to share the joy of yoga with the world.
