Yes, this is who I am, one of many others.

I am free to bow to any tradition, which represents a true essence of Creation.






I was born in former Czechoslovakia, traveled many places of this world and in 1994 have settled in British Columbia, Canada. Yoga crossed my path when I was sixteen. I initially practiced Hatha Yoga, and then evolved through Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga. My delight of young adulthood was Bhagavadgita.  In my thirties  I encountered my first Kundalini Yoga class.  I had attended classes in Nanaimo for about four years. On the side I continued to follow my daily individual Hatha Yoga practice and exercised Five Tibetan Rites. When I turned 37 I decided to pursue Teachers’ Training in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan at Yoga West in Vancouver. Eight months of intense work and studies enriched my life immensely. I wanted to share this blessing and began to teach in community center. A year later, in 2004, I opened Anahata Yoga and Healing Studio, where I run a variety of classes and events. I currently study and work on the third level of a Kundalini Yoga Teachers’ Training, which is deep and profound way of learning how to master one’s life and requires lots of time for integration.



Another thread connecting my past and the future is my curiosity in the nature of consciousness.

My wish as an eighteen year old was to study psychology. That did not happen; instead I studied law and journalism. However, 21 years later I had another chance to materialize this dream through the world of psychotherapy. With seven years of training in the Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) I grew to understand many issues which had puzzled my mind for a long time. This experience stimulated my appetite for more. That is why I chose Masters of Transpersonal Psychology program at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (ITP).

Yoga is truly one of the oldest systems of psychology and psychotherapy. Practice of Kundalini Yoga, meditation, and psychotherapy complement each other as much as the Eastern and Western, Ancient and Modern wisdom can possibly do for our individual and collective wellbeing.

I became inspired to serve humanity in variety of approaches that form spectrum of services in Anahata Yoga and Healing Center. My wish is to utilize gifts which Creation bestowed upon me in greater interest of all of us.

The way of service I cherish the most dwells in my spiritual name:

       Guru Bhai Kaur - Princess of Ultimate Kindness and Love.
