|Class type:||Universal Yoga 1|
|Class description:||This class follows the tradition developed by Andrey Lappa, which weaves modern western science and ancient eastern wisdom together, and seeks to influence the practitioners’ life on and off the mat. Universal Yoga combines the practice of vinyasa with pranayama, visualisation, mantra, mudra and meditation. These elements are carefully sequenced in a symmetrical and progressive manner, making students feel a strong sense of balance and serenity at the end of each class. The arrangement of the mats in this class may or may not be cross-shaped.
Suitable for students with some yoga experience looking to have an invigorating and dynamic experience. No full inversions are included in these classes. Some preparations for inversions and Level 2 postures may be introduced, with options for Level 1 students to ease the transition from Level 1 to Level 2 classes.|
|Class level:|| Level 1|
|Gopal hails from Tamilnadu, Chennai (city of temples) in southern India . He began practising yoga from the age of 9 for fun but slowly found it had fused into his blood and breath. He has always loved sport and its challenges. Gopal has participated in numerous yoga competitions, acclaimed championships and title awards - but later he felt yoga is far beyond sports and competitions, it can be the best tool for any sport.|
Gopal has finished a diploma in Yogic science & Naturopathy from Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, an international teacher training (yoga siromani), an Advanced teacher training (Yoga Aacharya) from Sivananda Ashram, a 500-hour teacher training with Andrey Lappa on the system of Universal Yoga.
Gopal learnt yoga philosophy from his spiritual guru Master Kamal and he is always thankful to his first yoga teacher Guruji Chakra Paandi from the highly accredited Vivekananda Vidhyalaya school in India. At present he feels blessed and thankful to learn yoga philosophy from the kind-hearted Andrey Lappa .
Apart from practising yoga, Gopal loves ballet (he has a background in Russian & American ballet), Indian folk fusion,Certified Hip Hop, Certified Muay Thai, soccer, volleyball, badminton, swimming and music.
