Jani, a.k.a. Mahayogi Gokul, is a sincere, dedicated, and devoted yogi who shares his love and knowledge of yoga in a clear, dynamic, generous, and authentic manner.
Since 2000, Jani started exploring yoga with Janne Kontala, a friend of his as well as lifelong teacher. He has been practicing both Hatha and Ashtanga yoga everyday for over 13 years and has integrated these spiritual practices into his life. Jani's passion and commitment in yoga lead him to receive extensive yoga training from various international teachers, such as Cle Souren, B.N.S. Iyengar, Dwarka Das, Yogi Sachi, and Brahmacari Rudradev.
A native of Finland, Jani moved to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia with his wife Jaci in September 2012 where they founded their studio, Gokul Yoga Shala. Jani teaches workshops and retreats in Croatia, France, Estonia, India, Australia, Bali, Malaysia, Singapore, China and Indonesia. We are thrilled to have him share his practice, presence, and inspired teachings on Yoga Anytime.
