Devpreet Kaur (IKYTA, RYT, CCTP) Trauma-informed Kundalini Yoga
Devpreet’s yogic journey started as a child in the 1960's when despite poverty, neglect and abuse, she felt God's love so strongly that she began a lifelong quest to understand the love she felt because she wanted to know how to love it back. She began a sporadic Hatha Yoga practice in the late ‘70’s but it was her brother's sudden death in 1993 when she says she was "shaken awake." She walked away from a lucrative career and simultaneously pursued a two-year program in NYC where she learned yogic principles, was initiated and given a mantra.
In 1994, she came to the Khalsa clinic for meditation and chiropractic care. Shortly thereafter she took her first Kundalini Yoga class with Nirbhe Kaur and instantly knew that "I had come home to the Source of the love I always felt," she says.
In 2011, debilitating health forced Devpreet to take early retirement from her healthcare training business, so she set out to heal herself through yogic and naturopathic means. She learned that her early traumas were at the root of much of the pain so after 19 years of a sporadic Kundalini Yoga practice, in 2013, Devpreet completed 220 hours of teacher training and began substantial sound healing and trauma-recovery studies. She subsequently became a “Certified Clinical Trauma Professional” then completed a year-long “Next Level Practitioner” program and has taken 29 additional traumatic stress courses. Devpreet believes that the course of her entire life has prepared her to transform her karma to the dharma of teaching Trauma-informed, trauma-sensitive Kundalini Yoga. Students say that Devpreet’s teaching style is "real-world yet reverent" as "she communicates the transformative effects of the teachings with compassion, authenticity and ease.” To read specific testimonials visit www.DevpreetKaur.com
