ABOUT YOGI BHAJAN AND KUNDALINI YOGA
Yogi Bhajan introduced Kundalini Yoga to the West in 1968. He taught over 8,000 classes and inspired thousands of people to keep up and live in their excellence. Arriving first in California, Yogi Bhajan understood that the youth were seeking connection to higher consciousness but were going about it the wrong way – through drugs and “half-baked mysticism.” He taught his students tirelessly, created Yoga Teacher Training, Women’s Camp, Summer and Winter Solstice, established the first interfaith International Peace Prayer Day in 1985, and has authored over 30 books on his teachings.

During a recent class with Nicole she encouraged the class by saying how the work will make us stronger for life’s challenges. I realized how yoga can be a practice that helps with inner strength, and a clearing out of negativity. Nicole’s yoga class teaches you to be strong and self reliant, it also helps to clear your mind so when you leave you feel very happy.
