The Teachers

Simran Kaur Khalsa

One of the first babies born into the 3HO community, Simran Kaur is a lifelong singer and yogi. She grew up in an ashram in Brooklyn, New York (USA) and was surrounded by Kirtan from her earliest days. She went to school in Mussoorie, India where she studied voice and harmonium. She also studied Gatka and Gurbani.

Simran and her husband GuruPrem have recorded many mantras and songs together, including: Tantric Har (her most widely known recording), Tantric Mool Mantra, Tantric Sa Ta Na Ma. Their recent albums include: The Heart Rules, Heal Me ( with Siri Simrity mantra for restoring dignity, divinity and grace to the feminine), Suite: Kirtan Sohila which they also recorded in Spanish with the title Dulces Suenos, and Love Life! Simran loves to share how to sing with people and help everyone listen to and create their unique voice and sound.

Simran has taught Yoga for over 20 years and studied and taught extensively with her husband GuruPrem (designated by Yogi Bhajan as the Posture Master). She is a KRI-certified teacher and trainer. She is the lead teacher trainer of Divine Alignment & The Heart Rules around the world. 

Sat Shakti Kaur

Sat Shakti Kaur is a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, experienced in teaching general yoga classes for beginner to advanced students, specialty classes for women, students aged 60+, and students with health conditions. She completed Level 1 and Level 2 training at Kundalini Yoga East with Sat Jivan Kaur and Sat Jivan Singh Khalsa (Simran’s parents!) in New York and is a member of the Aquarian Trainer Academy. With Shanti Shanti Kaur Khalsa, she completed Foundations: Principles and Practices of Kundalini Yoga Therapy. She is a student and practitioner of Sat Nam Rasayan.

Yogi Bhajan

Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, arrived in the United States in 1969 with a stated purpose: “I have come to create Teachers, not to gather disciples.” For over 30 years, he traveled internationally teaching Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness. Through The Aquarian Teacher Program, Yogi Bhajan has trained thousands of KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teachers. In 1994, the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association, (IKYTA), was formed to further spread these priceless teachings through the united efforts of Kundalini Yoga teachers worldwide.
