Paramananda Das

Paramananda (@thehardcoreyogi) is a punk guitarist turned yogi from the hardcore scene of NYC, where he spent his youth playing blaring rebel anthems in bands such as Youth of Today, Judge and Shelter. Taking inspiration from the motivational messages of alternative music, he went on to deeply study asana, meditation, kirtan and bhakti yoga for years at ashrams all over India and America. In the spirit of wanting to give back what he had learned, Paramananda now teaches workshop and leads retreats all over the world.
