Gurushabd Khalsa Stories

Tell us your love story with Kundalini Yoga.

I loved yoga since I can remember myself, but kept wandering around and experimenting with different styles: Iyengar, Ashtanga, Sivananda, Bikram… what not. The moment I entered a Kundalini class for the first time I knew: the search was over, I finally found what I have been looking for the whole time. Words cannot describe the endless gifts that this practice had brought to my life since that very first class, and it keeps getting better and better every day.

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

No way. Love my life too much. However I’d invite them to take a Kundalini class with me, and become humans, once and for all.

What do you eat for breakfast?

On good days vegan yogurt with ayurvedic herbs, on bad days nothing, and every day coffee: black, strong, hot.

Have you learned any big lessons recently?


What’s your go-to mantra?

Sat Nam Sat Nam Sat Nam Sat Nam Sat Nam Sat Nam Wahe Guru! With this mantra vibrating, hard turns into easy, impossible becomes possible.

What’s your favourite podcast?

Currently I’m obsessed with NanakNamm.org, but Tara Brach is also a favourite, and so are CANADALAND, Savage Lovecast, The Body Temple and many many more.

Which meditation have you practiced the most amount of times? Why?

Sat Kriya. Where the Self meets truth. If you want to know who you REALLY are, do Sat Kriya.

What is it about teaching that lights you up?

The transformation that Kundalini Yoga brings to the lives of those who practice it – I’m in awe! Its positive effects are quick, vast and undeniable, and there is nothing that brings me more joy than seeing it happening in front of my eyes, every class. Sharing the gift of this practice as a teacher is inspiring and uplifting, it is a privilege which I carry out with much reverence. I am humbled to be able to deliver these sacred teachings and be part of the Golden Chain of teachers and Gurus.
