History Of Baron Baptiste & The Baptiste Institute

As the founder of "Power Yoga" in Boston and Cambridge, Baron Baptiste has become a world-renowned name when it comes to yoga. His unique teaching techniques and methodical approach to yoga have made him a household name and an individual who is well-regarded for his work. He is also the author of the best-selling yoga book "Journey Into Power".

The question now is, what is Baron Baptiste all about when everything is broken down? Let's take a look at his history and what his life has been about since the start to get a better understanding of how he has become such a successful name in yoga.

Starting with his history, he was always into yoga, and it was something people found peculiar as he was growing up. In fact, he was often teased about being "Hare Krishna" at school, but that didn't hold him back.

He continually learned from Sai Baba, Swami Rama, and Muktananda when it came to the intricacies of yoga even during a time when it was not as popular as it is now. His parents were also involved in yoga at the time, so he had the foundation in place to become a yoga teacher. He started to understand the nuances and how to teach these skills to those who wanted them the most. This teaching background is the foundation for his very popular yoga teacher training.

He has developed a particular method that has been refined over the years. It has become such a success over the years that he has earned time on ESPN as well. This begins to highlight how well-regarded he is for the yoga training approach and landed him an assistant coach position in the NFL for the Philadelphia Eagles in the late nineties.

The main thing he is now renowned for are his "Boot Camps" as they help prepare thousands of people with the skills that are required. The reason he terms them as boot camps instead of simple yoga retreats comes down to his vision. He wants to have the opportunity to "go with the flow" as he likes to term it.

The idea is to not pigeon-hole an experience and make sure the retreat can be customized based on what the person requires instead of going through the motions.

Baron is skilled and has learned various styles over the years before melting them together into one skill under the guise of Baptiste Yoga. Baptiste Yoga offers yoga certification and 200 Hour yoga teacher training as well as a 500 Hour yoga teacher training.

He has learned the art of Iyengar, Raja, Ashtanga, and Bikram Yoga over the years and continues to add to his skill set as the years go by. It is something he has always had an intrinsic interest in, and that does not go away with time.

He often states there is a thirst to learn and help refine his yoga teacher trainings and yoga classes to make them an even better experience for those who attend. It is something he is passionate about.

One of his proudest accomplishments has been his work with the "Africa Yoga Project", which is looking to spread the word on the yoga benefits and getting it to Africa. This has been a rewarding time for him and his team as they look to help everyone around the world.
