Krishna Kumar Krishnan Yogamunīśvaradāsa grew up in a yogic family from South India. At the age of 7, he was initiated into spirituality and haṭhayoga sādhana by his father, ācārya y.m.ī.d. Krishnan Ramasamy, who was a priest, astrologer and siddhayogi in a Tamil saiva siddhānta tradition. At the age of 25, he pursued his higher studies in Aerospace Engineering in Munich, Germany and was engaged as a scientific researcher in Madrid, Copenhagen and Berlin. Through the experience of Western lifestyle, he realized even more the importance of yoga and mindfulness training for a balanced, healthy and sustainable life in a modern world and started exploring the diversity of yogic philosophy as a holistic approach of life. He combines the essence of siddhayoga knowledge from his father with kuṇḍalinīyoga from yogācārya Paranjothi Subramaniam with the addition of mindfulness, awareness and meditation techniques from Tibetan master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. Additionally, he studied 4 years at Yoga Akademie Berlin under the guidance of yogācārya Ananda Leone and became a registered member of the Berufsverband der Yogalehrenden Deutschland (BDY) and the European Yoga Union (EYU). Through his involvement in yoga, he has realized that different yoga practices suit different people and began his exploration with acceptance, curiosity and joy. He is known for his sense of humor and dynamic teaching style with the ability to present ancient wisdom of saiva siddhānta in a fresh and accessible manner.
Śivaśakti Yoga – en
Śivaśakti Yoga is an energetic approach comprehensively that inspires the practitioner to experience the fullness of life in all its diversity, to create balance between stability & mobility, firmness & openness, peacefulness & joyousness. This art of yoga is deeply rooted in the saiva siddhānta tantric tradition, which reconnects the network of an individual microcosm with the divine macrocosm. This interconnectedness that goes beyond human anatomy will align the five bodies (pañca-kośas) and the psychic energy centers (cạ kras) at the gross, subtle and causal levels to experience total well-being.
In the tantric tradition śiva and śakti represent the polarities of the divine in the universe, in nature and in us. In Śivaśakti Yoga, these opposites embrace each other and merge consciously. The qualities of śiva are centering, grounding, muscular and rational, meanwhile śakti are expansive, growing, organic, intuitive. Every lesson has an integrated theme that fuses with dynamic vinyāsa sequences accompanied by clear alignment principles, different āsanas and prāṇāyāmas , including meditation and relaxation techniques as part of aṣṭāṅga-sādhana , the eight parts of systematic ancient yoga practice.
