Since year 2000, Gokulacandra (Jani Jaatinen) 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 he has integrated those spiritual practices as big part of his life.

In September 2012, Mahayogi has moved to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia with his wife Jaci, running their own yoga shala - Gokul yogashala. Known for sharing his love and knowledge of yoga in a clear, dynamic and generous manner, he receives invitations and returns regularly to teach and conduct workshops and retreats in Croatia, France, Estonia, India, Australia, Bali, Malaysia, Singapore, China and Indonesia.
