Raghunath, born Ray Cappo, started as a hardcore/punk singer-songwriter icon in Youth of Today. In a decadent music scene infested with drugs, negativity and intoxication, he was a light advocating clean living, positive attitude and vegetarian lifestyle, inspiring tens of thousands of fans internationally. Currently Youth of Today are on a reunion tour through Europe which is why we have the rare opportunity to attend his workshop during the day and throw ourselves in the mosh pit at night.
He started practicing yoga in 1987 with esteemed Sri Dharma Mittra and Shivananada Yoga. The pettiness of the business of music and the untimely death of his father led him to India in 1988 where he dove deeper into the lifestyle and spirituality of India. He became a celibate monk at a Krishna Bhakti Ashram for 6 years where he studied, meditated and lived the ancient yogic texts. Now, he’s an accomplished yogi in many styles, and married with five children. He leads retreats, workshops and teacher trainings around the world. Raghunath is an expert at taking the esoteric yoga philosophy and making it understandable for the contemporary world.
