ABOUT KUNDALINI YOGA

What does 'Kundalini' mean?
Kundalini is a Sanskrit word that means coiled, and refers to the dormant energy that resides, usually unnoticed, at the base of your spine. We could call this your untapped potential, your Atman’s shakti or soul power. The incredible technology of Kundalini Yoga is designed to bring about the awakening and release of this energy so you can connect to your highest self, your Sat Nam (True Identity).
Who invented Kundalini Yoga?
The earliest mention of Kundalini Yoga was in the Upanishads, a sacred Vedic collection of writings (c. 1,000 B.C.–500 B.C.). Historical records indicate that Kundalini was a science of energy and spiritual philosophy before the physical practice was developed.
From its origin, the science of Kundalini Yoga was kept hidden. It was treated as an advanced education and passed on by oral tradition only from master to a chosen disciple. Teaching Kundalini outside the secret society of Indian yoga elite was unheard of. It was believed that the public was not prepared to access such powerful knowledge.
It was never taught openly until 1969 when Yogi Bhajan took a one-way flight from Punjab, India to Toronto, Canada. He brought Kundalini yoga to the West and began teaching publicly.

At 27, I found myself walking aimlessly in Kitsilano trying to figure out the mess that had become my life. I ended up at a beautiful yoga studio called Yoga West. Out of curiosity, I took my first Kundalini yoga class that day. Immediately after that class, I signed up for teacher training. The universe put me on my path and I’m so grateful I had the awareness to see that.
I have experienced first-hand how Kundalini yoga can change your life in the best possible way, which is why I’m committed to sharing these teachings. I bring a unique east-west perspective to my classes where I share the Indian wisdom passed on to me by my mother, and the insights I've gained from life in the West.
