Sahaj Kaur, , Professional Trainer, Cambridge, MA – Yogi & Intuitive Energy Healer, Level One and Two Certified Kundalini Teacher trainer. My journey into healing and becoming a yogi began when a good friend invited me to a Kundalini yoga class. When I walked outside after the session, a quiet, clear voice in my head stated, “THIS WILL SAVE YOU.” As I listened to it, knowing it came from a deep place, the question emerged: save me from what? I already felt accomplished as an artist who had helped develop artist housing in Boston and had a successful career. Life was good, I thought. I was involved in local communities and seemingly thriving.
Yet I followed the voice and began to practice and study Kundalini yoga, which transformed my life. How did it transform my life? I have become steady, flexible, and content and continually pursue growth. As I cleared unwanted energies and developed a practice, my life came into a flow. And this is a continual process as it has become abundantly clear how important it is to heal and release energetic blocks, fears, and misperceptions to lead a successful life.
From healing myself and the practice of Yoga, I can now help others. My daily practice is essential to my well-being and gives me the strength, insight, and clarity to serve others. My students have found this work crucial in their journeys to being more deeply themselves. As a traditionally trained yoga teacher, trainer and healer, I bring you a joyful and knowledgeable lifelong study of Yoga which includes formal initiation and study with traditional swamis in India, as well as in-depth training in several modalities of Yoga (Kundalini, Hatha, and Ashtanga). These techniques create balance, healing, and calmness.
