Flow and glow your yoga journey with YOGACHARYA P.Gopala Krishnan (HONG KONG)
Gopal started practicing yoga from his age of 8 where he chose yoga as an extra curricular from his school. Practising yoga poses with schoolmates for inter school competitions and performances sparkled him during childhood to learn more about it. Every time after sharing the experience of what he learnt and when people say feel better and comfortable, that motivated him to deepen the knowledge in yogic science.
After practicing yoga gopal feels life has lifted him as person to love, to serve, to be content, to give and to elevate the mind.
Gopal feels Yoga is a way of life emphasizing what is important; humility, grace, kindness, breathe, honoring your body, hope, change, stillness; through a series of movements. The movements are the vessels that carry this belief system through every inch of the body.
Yoga keeps you grounded through the hard times, rejoices with you in the good times, and heals you in the sad times. It is a friend you can always count on. It is a place you always belong. It is a time of stillness when you need calm; it is a place of energy when you need uplifting.
Gopal says his parent’s unconditional love; constant support and his dedication towards the art had brought him up as a yoga teacher.
Master Dr.Kamal Srinivas – gopal got the chance to teach abroad and he learnt the yoga philosophy directly from him and literally his life changed because of him.

Andrey Lappa – gopal feel so glad and lucky to have andrey in his yoga journey. He feels andrey is like an ocean of knowledge that constantly serves for the humanity.
Gopal had learnt to live life simple, to be content, to meditate, to practice asanas with right sense, to have a healthy balanced life, to be grounded, to serve and love unconditionally from all these teachers.
Gopal likes and approaches his classes with a sense of homour. His classes always have an option from beginner to advance to hold the poses in a way motivating everyone towards a healthy practice. Apart from physical strength, flexibility, alignments and adjustments he likes to take his students towards joy, peace and finding harmony with a healthy state of mind. His focus is more on grounding, centered and mindful breath awareness, which comes through heart. He would love to see students feel relaxed physically, mentally and spiritually. He would like the students to approach the practice in a grounded way than competitive. Gopal would like and love to help the students to understand and apply that yoga can be a best tool in life to incorporate with all means.
