Jai Gopal likes to call himself the most unlikely yogi. He was born in New York City, raised in The Bronx and then Queens with conservative parents, a NYPD homicide detective stepfather and Nurse mother. He attended West Point, The United States Military Academy and then served five years as an army artillery officer during operation desert storm. After leaving the army he moved to Los Angeles to pursue writing and that’s where Kundalini Yoga found him. He fell in love with Kundalini Yoga after experiencing how quickly the technology works to move one mentally and physically to their optimum state of flow, which leads directly to the soul. After meeting his teacher, Harijiwan, Jai Gopal became dedicated to experiencing the teachings and sharing them with others. Practicing and teaching Kundalini Yoga for nearly twenty years, he very much enjoys exploring and sharing the pure teachings of the lineage.
