Born into a Sikh family in New Mexico, USA, Guru Jaswant Kaur Khalsa was raised in a community where spiritual development was a way of life. At the age of 9, her parents sent her to a boarding school in India where she spent 7 years learning Sikh culture, language and philosophy. During then, Guru Jaswant was exposed to yoga as part of the school’s curriculum but only began to appreciate and practise it seriously back in the US while undergoing her tertiary studies.
Guru Jaswant’s passion for Kundalini Yoga and Bhangra Dance coupled with her fun and lively methods of teaching have attracted students from different age groups. She believes that yoga and dance help to connect, energize and uplift the body, mind and spirit.
