Jani started his yoga journey in 2000 with Janne Kontala, a legendary teacher and Jani’s good friend. Since then, he has been practicing Hatha and Ashtanga, as well as integrating yogic spiritual practices. He also teaches internationally, regularly visiting Gokul Yoga Bali for retreats and teacher training workshops. Mahayogi’s dedication and devotion to yoga are an inspiration for everyone who has had the chance to study yoga with him.
Masley is a trained and dedicated yoga instructor. Her practice is influenced by classical yoga covering Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga Yoga currently taught by Mahayogi Jani Jaatinen of Gokul Yoga. She teaches Hatha and Vinyasa yoga which are alignment-based so no matter the pace of the practice is, the mind finds quiet strength in becoming aware of the rhythm of the body. She is a registered yoga teacher (E-RYT 500) and has a background in community and clinical psychology. She hopes to share her knowledge in using yoga as a complementary toolkit in managing stress, anxiety, and depression.

Le cadre est très joli et excentré, la piscine très agréable. Les cours sont tops, le staff aussi, la cuisine même si vegane est excellente (moi qui ne mange pas de légumes d'ordinaire !) les activités en dehors des cours sont très bien... (visite du village, rizières, usine traitement de riz, cours de cuisine, danse Balinaise) 😊 j'ai vraiment apprécié ma retraite et rencontré des gens très gentils. Merci 😊

"Gokul x Umasari"
Really a course where learning was at the foundation and practical application of the knowledge. The schedule was strict but we also had a lot of freedom.
