Neal has been practicing yoga for over twenty years and teaching since 2003. He sees yoga as a map guiding us home to a place of peace and relaxed openness in each moment. Neal’s teaching focuses on exploring and refining natural movement and alignment principles– learning to embody these principles in a way that takes our spiritual practice into our everyday lives.

Neal has taught on training programs in Australia and New Zealand, and has been part of the teaching faculty on renown teacher Donna Farhi’s Advanced Teacher Training.

Neal is also an experienced Holistic and Thai massage therapist, an accomplished musician and kirtan chant leader, and loves the 5Rhythms movement practice which his partner Sacha Paddy teaches.

what people are saying about Neal Ghoshal

Bridget McNamara

This training surpassed all expectations - challenging, inspiring, and deeply informative. It has opened my eyes to a whole new world of yoga! Karla, Neal, Dyana and Vincent are all exceptional and skilled practitioners, whose authenticity and love of yoga shone throughout the duration of the course.

Jay Garman

I couldn't be happier that I chose to do my training with Vincent, Dyana, Neal and Karla at Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training. Instead of pigeonholing myself into a particular style or approach, Ive had an immensely rich exploration of yoga, from the ancient to the modern, offered by this range of true masters. My foundation will never be the same. I'm ready to share.

Jessica Dziwulska

I feel exceptionally honoured to have spent time with Karla and Neal. Their passion and curiosity for movement and the authentic experience of self is inspiring and encouraging. I have been reminded that I have a home within myself where there is peace and nourishment and a gentle sense that everything is OK.

Simon Molloy

Neal brings such a focused intensity to his classes that it is almost impossible not to be carried along in the teaching experience he provides. Neal is able to make palpable the endless connections between the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga practice. His use of music and dance creates a learning experience that is holistic joyful and at times deeply sensuous. At the same time he has an eye for detail in asana work but always emphasizes self-care, acceptance of individual differences and respect for students as core principles.
