Gopala believes that happiness is the compass to guide us in the right direction in life, and that we can make this world a better place if we just stop being so serious and busy and start bringing more play and connections to our life.

Gopala has been practicing yoga and meditation since he was 14 years old. He was a Hindu monk for 10 years with Sivananda Ashrams and has been teaching yoga since 1995.

Gopala created a revolution with Rainbow Yoga, making the practice social and interactive. Gopala, in co-creation with Angel and his beautiful family are on a mission to spread concepts bigger than yoga and bigger than themselves. Love, community and connection are at the heart of Gopala’s intentions to make the world a better place one person at a time.

About Rainbow Yoga

Rainbow Yoga is all about connection; connecting to yourself, to the world and to the people around you. Connecting in all of those ways changes the world!

We are social animals and we crave connection. We want to feel that we belong, we don’t want to be lonely. We want to touch, to share, to give and receive love. That’s what Rainbow Yoga is all about!

The yoga we create is communal, interactive and fun!

Rainbow Yoga celebrates life and brings people together! The old paradigm of yoga is practicing on your own, on your own individual yoga mat, for your own self-realisation and for your own self development, whether physical, mental or spiritual.

The new paradigm that we present is social yoga. Instead of contracting and going within to plug into life and find happiness, we expand to connect and weave into everything around us. This creates a real sense of aliveness. We thrive as we grow and open to a life and yoga that is much more fulfilling.

In Rainbow Yoga we connect with touch, we massage, we hug, we dance, we move together. We co-create the class in a magical way that creates a playful space for everybody to feel loved and nurtured.
