Randy Aromando opened Ashtanga Yoga Belmont in 2011. Prior to this he lived in Manhattan for fifteen years where he practiced with Eddie Stern at Ashtanga Yoga New York. He first travelled to India in 1998 to practice with Pattabhi Jois for six months. On a subsequent trip in 2002, Guruji offered him permission to teach. Soon thereafter, Randy began assisting Eddie Stern at AYNY, intermittently continuing studies with Guruji and Sharath in India. Randy's time at the institute in India and at Eddie's school in New York provide the basis for his teaching.
