Gurushabd and Gurmukh kundalini teacher training at triyoga

Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa is a teacher of Kundalini yoga and a pioneer in the field of pre-natal yoga. She studied directly with Yogi Bhajan, who gave her her Sikh spiritual name meaning “one who helps people across the world ocean”. Since then, she has dedicated her life to fulfilling that responsibility – co-founding and directing Golden Bridge with her husband Gurushabd, the premier centre for the study and practice of Kundalini yoga and meditation in Los Angeles, and travelling around the globe to share her teachings.

In this episode of triyoga talks, Gurmukh and Gurushabd talk about their experiences of studying with Yogi Bhajan, the vast oral history and traditions of Kundalini yoga and how Gurmurkh’s own experiences and grief shaped her teaching of yoga for pregnant women.

Speaking on life’s struggles, she says, “Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as we could have been. We could never fly.”

On teaching, she adds, “You’ve got to […] find those who aren’t as lucky as you and say, how may I serve you? I don’t know a better gift than giving to the world and those who are suffering:  yoga, meditation, and going within.”
