Meet the Author

Ravi Dykema attended Antioch University in Yellow Springs, Ohio from 1970-71. He studied Yoga in Pondicherry, India with Swami Gitananda at his traditional Yoga school, called Ananda Ashram, from 1972-76. Mr. Dykema earned the rarely-given title, "Yogiraj," which means, "master of Yoga," and the title, "Yoga Chikitsaka," which means, "Yoga therapist." He became an instructor at Ananda Ashram in 1973 while studying there. Mr. Dykema has maintained a private practice in Yoga therapy and taught Yoga classes since then in Colombo, Sri Lanka (where he ran a Yoga center for 9 months), Milwaukee, WI, Madison, WI, Green Bay, WI (where he was a Specialist in Physical Education at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay), and Boulder, CO, where he resides currently. Mr. Dykema has been teaching at Naropa University since 1989 where he helped design a Bachelors of Arts degree in Traditional Eastern Arts with a Concentration in Yoga. He directs the Yoga Department at Naropa University and is an Adjunct Professor there. He is also a member of the advisory committee of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). In addition to his Yoga work, Mr. Dykema owns and edits a magazine called, NEXUS, Colorado's Holistic Journal. He has interviewed many of today's Yoga experts for his magazine.
