Bhava Ram has done it again! After escaping from the jaws of a Desert Storm - inflicted cancer death, this former war correspondent abandoned Western Medicine and immersed himself totally into the Yogic life. The result has been a complete healing and emergence into robust, dynamic health. Now, for his encore, he brings to every man and woman, Deep Yoga: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times. Deep Yoga, I submit, is a well-conceived roadmap toward achieving optimal health, wellness, serenity, and success. Does that sound like a journey worth taking? Written in down-to-earth, easily understood language, with no more ancient terms and concepts than necessary (and those are collected in a nifty Sanskrit glossary in the back), Bhava leads his reader step-by-step into a relationship that promises immediate energy increase, and on a deeper level, the tools that enable each one of us to achieve peace of mind. Through this outpouring of love and wisdom, synthesized into manageable bites, Bhava connects us with our higher self, leading us to become one with the entire universe. A quick read of any daily newspaper front page will certainly bring unanimous agreement that we all desperately need this Ancient Wisdom in these troubling times. So I shout to all; Go get yourself a healthy dose of this wonderful stuff: Go Deep Yoga! --Jerry Bryant, Publisher, Minister, Teacher
Bhava Ram is co-founder of Deep Yoga, a yogic system based upon Vedic Scriptures, Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda that goes deeply into the mind/body/soul connection, guiding students and clients towards greater self-understanding, purification, inner-healing and deeper consciousness. Bhava's creation of Deep Yoga is the result of profound personal transformation after living with terminal illness and chronic pain, an experience that gave him a passion for sharing the transformative healing power that can be unleashed and mastered through the sacred sciences of Yoga & Ayurveda. For 25 years, Bhava was a broadcast journalist, working for television stations across the country and ultimately as a foreign correspondent with network news. He lived and worked throughout the world, including Africa, South America, Asia and the Middle East. An accident left him with a broken back. A failed surgery rendered him crippled and in severe chronic pain. This cost him his career and any ability to work. Several years later, Bhava was diagnosed with a rare and fatal form of throat cancer - most likely contracted from chemical exposure during the Persian Gulf War. Western doctors gave him two years to live. Towards the end of those two years, on the brink of death, Bhava found Yoga. It immediately struck a chord deep in his soul. He left western medicine behind and fully devoted himself to sadhana (daily yogic practice and study), delving into every aspect of the art and science of Yoga, practicing and studying 12-16 hours per day for the first several years. Through this process, Bhava Ram self-healed both his broken back and his "terminal" cancer. He now devotes his life to sharing the miracle of self-healing with others, believing fully that we all have the inherent power to take charge of our destiny, heal ourselves and effect lasting personal transformation in our lives. Deep Yoga is an expression of this belief and devotion. Bhava is certified as an Advanced Yoga and Ayurveda Educator through the American Institute of Vedic Studies. He has completed additional courses in The Yoga Sutras, Vinyasa Krama (the art of sequencing) and Yoga Chikitsa (Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy). He is also certified by the Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT at the 500-hour level. Deep Yoga is registered as a teaching school with the Alliance. Bhava leads retreats, workshops, trainings and seminars with his wife, Laura Plumb, co-founder of Deep Yoga. He teaches Deep Yoga and Deep Healing classes at Ginseng Yoga Studio in San Diego and works with a host of private clients.
