Sat Siri is a trailblazing, next generation, Kundalini Yoga teacher and trainer. She travels the world teaching Kundalini Yoga in places like Bali, Maui, Mexico and India. She has been practicing Yoga and Meditation for over twenty years and teaching Kundalini Yoga for fourteen. She practiced Iyengar Yoga, Vipassna Meditation, and many other modalities before finding Kundalini Yoga.
A former ballet dancer with the Australian Ballet, Sat Siri found ballet meditation in motion, a creative expression that renewed her perspective with each step, turn or jump. “I fulfilled my childhood dream of dancing with the Australian Ballet. The truth that no matter how many times I practiced a step or a turn or a jump in the studio, once on stage everything was new and fresh, I was in the present moment. I had to be, sublimely so. Every breath mattered.”
“I felt similar when I first started Kundalini Yoga, the rhythm of a spinal twist with breath and music felt so freeing to me. Then the icing on the cake was that I got to close my eyes too! That felt amazing to me and a big relief. After all those years of studying and practicing and looking in the mirror perfecting everything physically to turn within to the world behind my eyes was profound and healing.”
She trained under the guidance of Yogi Bhajan in 2003. “Training with Yogi Bhajan was both magical and terrifying. He reminded us of our greatness, and how important it was to uplift people. To stay humble was big, he said: “how far you bow is far you’ll rise.”
She opened the first studio in Sydney Australia in 2003. This tiny studio, fondly named by students the “yogi box”, could only fit eight students. Though small, this studio made big waves, a year later the studio moved to a larger space and the Sydney community continued to blossom.
“The students bonded over the experiences they were having in class; laughter, tears and real discussions about their lives. I still get emails about how special those days were and the positive effect they had on their lives. It makes my heart smile. I go back each year and teach workshops, it blows me away each time and is something I am very proud of.”
Sat Siri is a teacher of teachers, but her classes are open to all levels – uplifting, challenging and healing. She has a unique ability to anchor the more esoteric qualities of this technology, bringing the tools into practical, everyday life. She believes it is everyone’s birthright to experience the peace, grace, and blessings that awaken with daily Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her exuberant daughter Prem, who is, of course, her greatest teacher.
