Gurushabd Khalsa Stories

In 1 sentence, what was your first impression of Kundalini Yoga?

It was weird yet felt familiar in my body and sparked a deep connection with God I had not experienced since I was a child.

If aliens landed on earth tomorrow and offered to take you home with them, would you go?

Yes.

Tell us your love story with Kundalini Yoga.

After experiencing my first spiritual awakening about 10 years ago and my life falling apart in the process, I started working with a spiritual teacher. Not knowing much about it, he had an intuitive suggestion that I start Kundalini Yoga. I had my first class in Portland, Oregon in 2011 and fell in love immediately with the practice. Since then I dove into Kundalini Yoga and found the teacher within me.

Do you have a day job? If yes, what is if?

I am a healer practicing Zero Balancing and Kundalini Yoga therapy. I give treatments in the Lotus Healing Room on Thursdays! I am also in Traditional Chinese Medicine school full time.

What do you eat for breakfast?

Usually alternate between oatmeal or eggs.

How often do you do a daily practice? What do you do?

I have completed a 1000 day meditation and am now a year into my second 1000 day meditation. This one is the “Half Star of David Meditation to Become a Natural Healer”. My intent is to continue doing 1000 day meditations for the rest of my life.

Have you learned any big lessons recently?

Having a specific intent for each day and writing down what I’m grateful for each day is transformational.

What’s your go-to mantra?

Mool Mantra.

What’s your favourite podcast?

Wetheether.

What is it about teaching that lights you up?

There’s usually a point when I can sense someone is connecting fully within themselves. I can feel the energy of the group shifting collectively and Yogi Bhajan’s presence is there every time. When I teach I feel completely energized.
