Director and Kundalini Yoga Teacher
Uttamjeet Kaur describes the call to practice Kundalini Yoga as a voice impossible to ignore. The call came for her in 2010. As it is for many, awareness of the practice came to her as she found herself working through life changes and the desire to examine herself on a deeper level. Completely different from other styles of yoga, she was attracted to the unique facets of Kundalini Yoga. Uttamjeet recalls her first class as an experience like no other. She knew instantly that she was to answer the call to become a Kundalini Yoga Teacher.
Uttamjeet completed her Kundalini Yoga teacher training at Hacienda de Guru Ram Das Ashram, home of Yogi Bhajan, in New Mexico. During her time at the Ashram, she became aware that the next step in the journey was to open a space for Kundalini Yoga. Studio Sat Nam became a reality in 2014 and her vision for the studio continues to be to provide a sacred and safe space dedicated to the practice of Kundalini Yoga.
Uttamjeet is described as a grounded and comical yogi. She encourages people to be respectful of their bodies while at the same time safely pushes to go beyond the limits created by the mind. Her classes will leave you feeling empowered, focused and aware of your divine potential. Uttamjeet believes in the power of Kundalini Yoga and is pleased to share the knowledge with all.

Tara Shanti Kaur
Kundalini Yoga Teacher
Tara Shanti Kaur knew she was going to be a Kundalini Yoga Teacher in 2011 after she tried one Kundalini posture, but it wasn’t until years later that she would answer the call.
After experiencing severe and debilitating anxiety, she knew something had to change; somewhere deep within she believed she had the power to heal, nurture and love herself back to wholeness, yoga and meditation her medium.
In 2016 Tara Shanti made the commitment and joined the Level One KRI Kundalini Teacher Training at Studio Sat Nam. A brand new graduate, Tara Shanti is passionate about human potential, exploring consciousness and the journey back home to Self.
She believes in the technology of Kundalini Yoga; the ability to experience the infinite in the finite, the way it can increase happiness, reduce stress and anxiety, develop intuition and balance emotions, strengthen the nervous system and influence our neurology – to name a few.
But don’t take her word for it, she encourages others to experience it for themselves.
Tara Shanti’s journey with yoga and meditation has become her life’s work; when she isn’t teaching you’ll find her in service to others as a coach, writer, workshop facilitator and creator of sacred adornment for the soul
