Kundalini Rising with Sheel Seidler at the San Diego Yoga Festival

Sheel (aka Jai Guru Sheel) has advanced training in Kundalini (500+ hr) and Hatha Yoga (200 hr), and is fascinated with how to apply ancient yoga teachings to today’s lifestyle, particularly to the paths of recovery and motherhood. Her students love her approach of making these ancient teachings accessible and notice new capacity for joy in their daily life almost immediately. She is also known for her ability to weave in stories throughout class about the roots of Kundalini, the Sikh Gurus and Yogi Bhajan so effortlessly. In both of her advanced trainings she learned from students who sat at the feet of masters (Krishnamacharya and Yogi Bhajan) and had been teaching for over 40 years. Lineage and purity of the teachings for powerful effects (versus dogma and ritual) are central to her practice and the experience she transmits to her students.

You can find her teaching in person at Buddhi Yoga in La Jolla or online at KundaliniWithSheel.com
