For the past 2 decades he has mastered many styles of Yoga i.e., Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga Kundalini yoga, Himalyan meditation and Philosophy of Yoga. And also his mastery of martial arts (he is a 5Dan Black Belt) and various fitness science's helped him to incorporate additional ways to strengthen the body and mind. Unifying and adding to them, then acquiring the most effective ancient techniques to create a unique mind/body health system designed for the 21st Century, called Master Kamal’s Kryoga. His Kryoga System has made him the most successful and famous Yoga Master in all of Asia.
He eventually travelled to Singapore (1994) and with hard work and determination he found success. Soon he was gracing scores of billboards in Asia as a unique and new style Yoga Master . He has become a mainstay of magazines, is Hong Kong’s first New Age Wonder and has appeared numerous times on network television in Asia. He is the pioneer in bringing yoga into the limelight throughout Asia.
In 2002 Master Kamal became the Director of Planet Yoga and together with California fitness center he established 14 Yoga centers in Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam. Under his leadership he introduced different styles of yoga, trained dozens of top Yoga teachers and brought them from India to Asia, introduced Indian Dance and dance teachers and made the center to become the world's fastest growing and biggest Yoga studio chain in Asia. He also collaborated as an advisor in programming and organizing the first TRUE YOGA centers in Singapore.

He was unhappy, even with the success he had achieved at Planet Yoga, California Wow and True Yoga. What remained for Master Kamal was in having his own lovingly constructed environment specially designed to give students the full benefits and complete system that he developed. Inspired by the thousands of success stories he witnessed from students and teachers about the amazing benefits that his system had produced, he realized that there was more to be offered through Kryoga. He knew that in order for his vision to become a reality, he would have to start his own center. In 2008 Master Kamal left Planet Yoga and other companies and began developing his own Kryoga system into a complete lifestyle and yoga discipline.
This passion is what has created Master Kamal’s Kryoga as a unique sanctuary in the heart of Bangkok. Every detail, from his World class teacher’s team that he selected from all parts of the world, to the joyful and exclusive classes designed specifically for the members. Master Kamal’s vision of quality and love is finally realized at his new Portico Center.
