Sanction Information:


Class Location: The Hong Kong Jockey Club Hall Limited yoga mats available. Participants are encouraged to bring their own mats. Participants are recommended to bring their own towels as changing and shower facilities are not available. This Yin Yang sequence is a unique style created by Teacher C. P. Yogaraj. It is a two-part class, with the first part focusing on Yang yoga which mainly flows through Vinyasa sequences (standing postures, jumping steps, and power yoga) while focusing on developing core strength, muscle tone, balance, stamina with proper alignment. Part two mainly works on yin yoga postures with deep stretches, careful adjustments, relaxation to target the connective tissues of the body and cultivate a peaceful and meditative mind. Yogaraj C. P. was initiated into Yoga at the age of five by his father. He later learned Yoga from Yoga Acharya A. Yesudas Antony, who has studied Yoga in the world renowned International Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India. Yogaraj has participated and won many Yoga Competitions since 1988. In 1991, he won the championship award at the State Yoga Competition, in Tamil Nadu, India and was awarded the title “Yogaraj” meaning “King of Yoga.” He started teaching Yoga at the age of 17, and he came to Hong Kong in 2003. In 2009, he accomplished his first Guinness World Record for Longest Yoga Marathon that lasted 28 hours in which he performed 1,019 different Yoga postures. In 2011, he made the second Guinness World Record for the most consecutive yoga positions (23) on a moving motorcycle in Mumbai, India. In 2015, he broke his own record by continuously performing more than 1,500 yoga postures for 40 hours and 15minutes. This feat was highly appreciated by Honorable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi and he had a great privilege to lead the performance of 300 students at Temple of Heaven in Beijing during PM’s visit to China. He is currently Guest Yoga Teacher at City University of Hong Kong, also the founder of Divine Life Yoga Limited and the director of Prana Yogam, a Yoga Studio established by him in 2012.
