Naomi Charanpal :
After practicing Hatha yoga for a decade, I grew curious about other forms of yoga and, perhaps because of the provocative nature of its name, gave Kundalini a try. It was totally different than I expected, in a good way. I began to feel sensations in my body awaken and my awareness of myself as a spiritual being deepened. After a year of fervent practice under the guidance of my teacher, Daljit Singh Khalsa, he encouraged me to become a teacher.
It is a great honor to have studied at Golden Bridge in Los Angeles, with leaders in the community such as Gurmukh, Harijiwan, and Tej. In 2012, I became certified by the Kundalini Research Institute, and in 2013, by Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga. I felt the call to deepen my studies, and so in Rishikesh, India, I completed a Level Two training in the Yoga of Authentic Relationships.
Music is one of my favorite things on the planet, and so each class is blessed by the grace of song and chanting mantra. I am also a graduate student of Spiritual Psychology, and enjoy sharing ways in which we can bring peace and healing into our lives through yoga and the psyche.
I encourage everyone to try Kundalini. Whether it becomes a part of your daily practice, or whether it enhances your already awesome Hatha, Yin, or Vinyasa practice, there is something in it for everyone.
