Guru Shabad De Santis, the first Kundalini Yoga and Gatka teacher in Italy, has been training teachers in both disciplines for over 30 years. Yogi Bhajan invited him to become Baba Nihal Singh’s direct Gatka student, and then introduced him personally to the Sword Therapy. At that time, Yogi Bhajan asked Guru Shabad for two twin swords (now kept with the Sikh Dharma treasures), and told him: “One sword will be mine and one will be yours. Each time you will heal by the use of the sword, I will be there with you”.

My work as a Professional Trainer comes from deep longing to share the depth and wisdom of the Kundalini Yoga tradition. I do emphasize that it is a spiritual journey, a personal process, as well as a training to become yoga instructor. I like to put the teachings into our day to day life situations and that it all comes down to how loving and compassionate we can be with our selves and each others. That it is a training to serve the world and express our soul fully. For me its really about how to be a soul incarnated as a human in the Aquarian Age. For that reason its very important for me to build group consciousness so I often bring in small partner- and group exercises to create that. As I am a musician I also bring in lots of music into the Trainings and I encourage everyone to bring out their own inner musician. Qualities people use to appreciate me for is depth, clear communication, inspiration, creative teachings, ability to creating safe environment, that I am straight forward in a hearty way. That I have a great sense of humor.

I have been a teacher my entire life. In my career, I began as a riding instructor and worked for 20 years. When I landed in my Level 1 training I immediately changed the subject of my teaching from horseback riding to Kundalini Yoga. To be able to spread these amazing and powerful teachings feels very important. Each and every one of us needs it more than ever today. By being a Teacher Trainer, it gives me the opportunity to do that much more than by only teaching the regular yoga classes, where there is not so much room for the whole life philosophy. This is my contribution to peace on earth and for me to do what I do best, teach!
