Kundalini Yoga and Meditation is such a great tool to share with people in these difficult times. Currently I participate in Aquarian Teacher Training programs in Herndon, VA at Darshan Yoga Studio (, and in Charlottesville, VA at Breathe Studio ( Sat Nam Rasayan courses, taught by Gurudev Singh Khalsa, have also strengthened my skills greatly, and give me a greater ability to share Yogi Bhajan's wonderful teachings with others.
