Devpreet Kaur IKYTA, RYT 200 Devpreet's yogic adventure started as a child in the 1960's when despite neglect and abuse, she felt so certain of God's love that she began a lifelong quest to understand what she so strongly knew. Her journey took her to yoga in 1978 with sporadic Hatha Yoga classes, but it wasn't until her brother's sudden death in 1993 that she was "shaken awake." Shortly thereafter, she left an unhappy marriage and her job as a pharmaceutical executive and started her own company. She simultaneously pursued a two-year program at The School of Practical Philosophy where she learned yogic principles, was initiated and given a mantra.
In 1994, when she came to the Khalsa clinic for meditation and chiropractic care, Devpreet discovered Kundalini Yoga. "I knew that I had come home," she says, and it was then that her path to becoming a teacher was born. In 2011, Devpreet left a career in traditional healthcare and corporate training due to debilitating health and set out to heal herself by yogic and naturopathic means. In 2013, after 19 years of practicing Kundalini Yoga, Devpreet completed teacher training and embarked on her destiny; she believes that her entire life's course has prepared her to teach Kundalini Yoga. Devpreet's style is reverent as she communicates the deep Truths of the teachings. Through stories told with authenticity and ease, she shares the transformative effects that the teachings have in her own life and in so many others'.

Shivraj Kaur's yoga journey began in 1998-9. She was in her early 20's when a running injury forced her to try alternative forms of exercise, such as Hatha Yoga. She wasn't hooked right away but something kept her coming back for more. Yoga just seemed to "get the lead out" in a way that nothing else could. In 2002, she completed a Power Yoga teacher training to deepen her practice. She had no intention of ever teaching yoga but the universe had other plans for her. When a yoga teaching opportunity was offered to her, she simply said, "Yes!".
Several years ago, Shivraj tried Kundalini Yoga and felt a slow pull to go back for more. It wasn't until she went to Wanderlust in 2011 that she really fell in love with Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. Something opened up inside of her and she never looked back. In 2013, she completed the Level 1 Kundalini Yoga teacher training (IKYTA) under the loving guidance of Mahan Rishi Singh and Nirbhe Kaur Khalsa.
Shivraj is also trained to teach Asthanga Yoga, Primordial Sound Meditation, and the Veterans Yoga Project's Mindful Resilience for Trauma Recovery Yoga. Shivraj studied Asthanga Yoga with Manju Jois and David Swenson and often practiced under Patthabi Jois when he was in the United States. She studied Primoridal Sound Meditation at the Chopra Center under the guidance of Deepak Chopra, the late Dr. David Simon, and Davidji. She is also a Reiki Master.
Shivraj is inspired by the centeredness, calmness, and grace of truly devoted Kundalini practitioners, most notably those teachers that she has had the opportunity to study under. She is also inspired by the random acts of kindness of strangers, by nature, and by the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, Yogi Bhajan, and Christ. The practice of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation has helped her to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Shivraj feels that yoga and meditation are Divine tools that have helped her to move through some of her darkest hours.
Shivraj's vision as a Kundalini Yoga and Meditation teacher is to share those blessed and sacred teachings as tools to help empower others to heal themselves from the inside out and to help others to move out of their own darkness and into their own Light.

Since completing a 220-hour yearlong Kundalini Yoga and Meditation teacher training at the Khalsa Healing Arts Center in Yardley, PA, in 2016, April has been inspired to share her love of yoga with adults again. She loves that every class in Kundalini practice, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, incorporates asana, pranayama (breathing exercises), bandhas (energetic locks), and meditation.

Students appreciate the hatha background she brings to the practice. April also leads SUP Yoga classes at the shore and Falls Township Community Park in PA.
Kamal Sangat Kaur's surprising voyage into Kundalini Yoga began in early autumn 2015 while in a lucid dream during which she observed herself waking-up inside the yoga room of the Khalsa Healing Arts of Yardley, PA, where she was lovingly embraced by S.S. Nirbhe Kaur Khalsa, and one of the Center's founders.
With great curiosity Kamal Sangat Kaur soon began a study and practice of Kundalini yoga and meditation. Upon experiencing the deep power of this ancient science to help us to heal physically, and emotionally, she then committed to the 220 hour year of training and became certified as a Level One Kundalini yoga and meditation teacher.
As she continued deepening her practice, Kamal experienced a profound clearing and opening of the heart, with a rebirth and new life avenues blooming both inside and out. How amazing to begin to clear the grip of the control of the subconscious, and awaken and empower ourselves to our profound gifts as humans to be free to consciously evolve and create miraculous experiences in our lives, beyond what we ever imagined!
It is now her sacred vision, goal, privilege, honor and commitment to be able to continue to deepen and share these sacred tools with as many people as possible.
