Practicing Kundalini yoga since 1991, I was fortunate to take the Master's Touch teachers training in Espanola in 1997. Meeting Yogi Bhajan in person and being in his presence transformed me and completely changed trajectory of my life. I've been teaching Kundalini yoga since 2001, when I obtained my Level 1 certification. My goal has always been to deliver these sacred teachings to those less fortunate; for many years I taught by donation classes in one of Toronto's poorer neighbourhood. In 2010 I began volunteering for The Jean Tweed Centre, the oldest Canadian centre for women coming out of addictions; I also served volunteering for the Covenant House, the largest shelter for homeless youth. Seeing the impact Kundalini yoga has on them always warms and opens my heart. I am now Level 2 certified specializing in the Beyond Addiction program founded by my mentor Sat Dharam Kaur.

Fondatrice de Yoga Kikau (kikau.ca), c'est à la suite à la perte d’un de ses proches, en 1996, que Kirinjot amorce une quête identitaire et spirituelle qui la conduit vers l’approfondissement de la notions de conscience. Ayant rédigé un mémoire de maîtrise sur ces thématiques en 1998 (UQAM, maîtrise en communication), elle poursuit ses recherches introspectives par le biais du yoga, de la massothérapie et de divers ateliers de croissance personnelle. Persuadée que le yoga est un élément clé dans le maintien de son équilibre et animée par le désir de partager avec autrui le fruit de ses découvertes, elle participe à trois formations de professeur de yoga -- yoga Kundalini (Yoga Equilibrium, 2006), yoga Kripalu (Nirvana School of Yoga, 2007) et Hatha yoga (Yoga Lyne St-Roch, 2010) -- et assiste à de nombreux séminaires, ateliers et autres formations, tant au Québec qu'à l'étranger. Kirinjot complète également son deuxième niveau de formation en Yoga Kundalini en 2013 (Kundalini Research Institute, 500hrs) et obtient son diplôme Khalsa Way (yoga prénatal pour femmes enceintes) en 2016. C’est avec passion et compassion qu’elle propage depuis 2006 l’enseignement du yoga à Québec et lors de séjours d'exploration de soi à travers le monde.
