Vijay has traveled throughout India and has studied with many teachers and delivered lectures on many subjects. Also, he regularly travels to the West to teach Yoga; this has resulted in a teaching methodology containing finer qualities of both eastern and western life skills. The unique speciality of teachings of Vijay Gopala is the profound transformational link established between the philosophy of Yoga and the practice on the mat. This link is the very crucial thing which is missing from the present-day Yoga scenario on this planet. Having no access to establish this missing link on the mat, the ractitioners instead of practicing Yoga are ending up either practicing some physical exercises or lost in illusions. The endless confusions what different styles of Yoga are bringing can also be solved by knowing this authentic link. If you have a wish to know Yoga as it is beyond any styles, understanding the application of Yoga philosophy on the mat is absolutely needed.

The best opportunity to explore the yogic science which has the answer for every question is happening in the teachings of Vijay Gopala. Practice of Yoga is not a doing state, it is the skill of aligning to being state; it is the science of knowing the Self to harmonize your existence at physical, energy, mind, wisdom and soul level. Potential of expressing the true Self is immense. In the teachings of Vijay Gopala you will be guided to explore this immense potentiality.
