about me

A few words about myself

Since 1999 I have been involved in self-development work exploring my own natural gifts in the psychic and energy related fields.  Aside from this, after years of physical fitness and sports activity including athletics, boxing and many types of yoga, it was around 2004 when Kundalini yoga found me and I began to merge these two areas of my life.  My first teacher told us there was a shortage of Kundalini Yoga teachers in London at that time, and asked whether we would be interested in training.  This planted the seed in my mind of one day sharing this wonderful healing practice with others.

That eventually came to fruition when I qualified as a Kundalini Yoga teacher following training in London and France.  During that time I was given my spiritual name Updesh Kaur, by which I am known in the yoga community. Updesh means one who lives the essence of the Guru’s teachings. Kaur means the Princess/Lioness of God who walks with grace and power throughout her life.

Teaching classes and workshops since 2009, I am very enthusiastic about the healing qualities of Kundalini Yoga.  I love the transformation that Kundalini yoga brings to individuals, it can set you free from addictions, work through blocks; it’s great to combat stress and bring a calmness of mind.  It can allow all to manifest their full potential and step into the full flow of life.

I find it a blessing to be able to facilitate the elevation of a person and to see a change in their energy field.  To promote personal development just by delivering these teachings is so wonderful.  It may manifest as subtly as a more restful night’s sleep, to relax easier or be without feelings of stress in our busy lives.  But either way the results can be seen and felt very quickly.
