International Yoga Teacher
Founder of one of the first didactic yoga web channels
Indian born yoga teacher Perumal Koshy is one of Europe and North Africa's leading teachers, for more than 10 years he has instructed classes, seminars and retreats while developing high caliber videos through USA, England, Italy, Spain and Morocco. Yoga Journal Italy Esprit Yoga France and Yoga Magazine Holland frequently publish articles authored by Perumal.
Perumal’s teaching career began under his Kung-Fu master during his teens while living in Los Angeles. After 10 years of practicing and instructing martial arts a yoga master guided him into yoga thus began Perumal’s journey of inner discovery through this ancient discipline. A journey that has taken him across India, Europe and America, whereby Perumal has been able to capture the essence and benefits of the world’s many yoga styles and forms, leading him to develop “Dynamic Progressive Fusion Yoga".
Mr. Perumal Koshy's comment:
"For years, my yoga students requested lesson plans to follow on their own and from the comfort of their home, office or hotel room. So began the development of lesson plans. These started as word documents which then evolved into pictorial PowerPoint presentations. Beyond just flat images I wanted my students to access the videos from any computer with an internet connection. I envisioned online yoga videos that would show in great detail the intricate technique of my instructions combined with easy to follow step by step lessons in a progressive manner at the pace of the student.
“In 2008 I was fortunate enough to meet Film Producer Miss Ines Stephan. Miss Stephan had produced an incredible array of international and humanitarian film projects. Although I saw the technical quality of Miss Stephan’s work as the perfect outfit for the detail I desired on the yoga channel, I was even more deeply moved by her background with spiritual and social endeavors. Projects such as Ines’ collaboration with his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet for a documentary film series, “What’s So Hard About Peace,” and her organization of a world peace conference in Rome 2003 through 2005, were just two of such endeavors that acted as a catalyst to our cooperation. Together, I knew we would produce the online, yet personal yoga experience that any serious yoga student would wish to follow.”

I looked at plenty of the yoga courses. I even tried a couple from celebrity endorsed teachers. They weren't for me. This is! The structure is simple, the instructions are clear (visually and audibly) and the guided meditation is the best part of my day. If you are like me and have come to realise that your body and mind are rigid from sitting in chairs all day then this is the course to release you from it. Thank you Perumal!
Over the years, I have tried various yoga classes,always shortlived. They required being in a certain place/time, the moves could be difficult depending on ones condition at the time and were expensive. Even attempting yoga from the various books in the market is frustrating and time consuming. I was amazed at the difference Perumal Koshy's yoga experience has been. It's amazingly soothing, all positions clearly explained and begins with gentle movements to accustom one to the work ahead. The videos are well done and I follow them daily, if I can. But one important aspect for me is that many of the moves are such that they can be performed easily in public areas or work spaces when not going through a formal lecture. I find myself routinely going through various moves in many situations, whether in the office or waiting in line. It's now part of my lifestyle. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to fit yoga into their fitness routine. Adaptable to even those on tight schedules.
I am quite impressed that Mr. Koshy himself got into contact with me to apologize for problems not being within his power. Video playback on the iPad is limited to lectures 1-3. I was using the Udemy app to view the course- like all the other ones that worked flawlessly. According to Mr. Koshy this is nothing on his behalf to clarify, as it appears to be a Udemy problem. From my perspective, I don't care too my why not and who is to blame- the result, videos not working on my iPad makes me regret the purchase in spite of its wealth of information. If You're into getting to know Yoga and are not planning to do this from an iPad, look no further! If, however, You plan to follow along on an iPad- look elsewhere...
I was not a yoga fun and I actually discovered it with Perumal. I had been to a couple of yoga sessions but never really ended up following anything regularly. Going through this course is convenient and easy - and fun too.
I'm practicing almost every day and enjoy it a lot. Your videos are very professional and very clear & easy to follow. So I'm happy with this daily exercise which gives me balance and inner strength. After only 3 weeks practice I already can feel how my postures are continuously improving.
