We are so excited to welcoming again certified Ashtanga teacher GOVINDA KAI and his teachings back to SantoshaYoga!

Govinda Kai is a certified teacher of Ashtanga Yoga from the Jois lineage in Mysore, India.

He began yoga practice at the age of 19 in California USA in 1978. Between 1978 and 1989, Govinda practiced Iyengar style yoga in San Francisco, California at the Iyengar School of Yoga.

In 1990, he was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga and has been a student of the practice for the past 32 years. Between 1995 and 2015, Govinda traveled to India to practice, usually for 3-6 months at a time, over 20 times.

He began teaching Ashtanga Yoga full time in 1997 and has been teaching full time until the present day. Though the course of his life, Govinda has taken a strong interest in different kinds of meditative disciplines, spending extensive time practicing meditation in the Mahayana and Zen Buddhist traditions. Govinda has also engaged in the study of yoga philosophy and other spiritual philosophies.

Come, study and learn from this exceptional teacher. Be prepared to be challenged, inspired and called to a deeper understanding, not just about yoga practice, but about what it means to live a truly meaningful life.

"Let us explore the great tradition and practice yoga together in ways and with a level of passion and enthusiasm that we have never given before."
- Govinda Kai
