We have all been hurt along the way by certain relationships and circumstances. There are people we have loved and lost- either by the physical separation of death or a parting of ways because of anger, substance abuse, mental illness, betrayal or inexplicable abandonment. There may be “psychic voids” and subliminal pain from childhood events whose details we cannot even consciously recall. There may be profound regrets for opportunities we passed up or heartfelt desires that could not be fulfilled and for which we grieve. Our focus will be on healing deep soul-wounds with applied techniques of Kundalini Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation. No previous Kundalini, or any other form of yoga experience is needed to attend.
About the Teacher
Siri Amrita met Kundalini Yoga As Taught by Yogi Bhajan in 1992, when she was still living in her native Trinidad. Her first teacher was one of Yogi Bhajan’s original students and took her to his feet just six months or so later, at the Summer Solstice in New Mexico in 1993. She received her spiritual name sitting directly before him. He told her: “The greatest thing in life is to teach and to heal people. You have a destiny to live this lifestyle.” She is a passionate student of this yoga and loves it for its basis in experience rather than abstract belief. She has witnessed firsthand its ability to transform and heal on many levels when practiced with devotion and discipline. She views studying, living and sharing Yogi Bhajan’s and yogic teachings, not just as a component of her life, but the very purpose of it. She has been teaching KY informally since 1993 but in 2012, she answered the call ‘officially’ and became a Level I certified Kundalini Yoga instructor. This year, 2017, will see her embark on the Level II certification training.
Siri Amrita currently lives in Virginia, with her husband of sixteen years, Sat Purkha Singh (affectionately named “Sat Babe” by a student at a past retreat, hearing Siri Amrita call him ‘Babe’ often….so he teasingly referred to like this by the lady KY students). She is a Prosthodontist (Advanced Dentist) at her practice “Shenandoah Smiles” in Harrisonburg. She teaches weekly Kundalini Yoga classes at a local studio, as well as multiple KY workshops there and privately, on a variety of topics. Last March, additionally, she taught an intimate weekend KY retreat in Virginia, entitled “The Elemental You”. She also led a small group (13 adults), 12- night KY retreat to India and Nepal, entitled “This Little Light of Mine”, October-November 2016. See retreat details and learn more about Siri Amrita.
