Sada Simran Singh
How to make an American Yogi?
Take a Catholic lumberjack that grew up on bologna sandwiches and twinkies, program him with the quintessential, culture, politics and rules of 1960’s society and infuse him with enough dissatisfaction and longing that he begins to seek another way...
My path began in my early 20’s at the Experimental College via the University of Washington. I discovered Tai Chi, courses on Eastern philosophy, and upon discovering Kundalini Yoga, I quickly began to recalibrate myself to a new way of meeting the world and living my life. These life changes catalyzed into a journey south where I landed in a Kundalini Ashram outside of Los Angeles….. where I lived for six years. I consumed the yogic technology of my teacher, Yogi Bhajan, with the totality of my being, and since have spent 40 of years immersed in the lifestyle of Kundalini Yogi and Sikh Dharma.
I’ve devoted my life to spreading these holistic teachings. As a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, I’ve founded and participated in various business ventures involving food & diet, herbs, yoga, and meditation. In 2008 I returned to the Seattle area, reconnected with my high school love and together we founded the Guru Gayatri Yoga and Meditation Center.

I love to teach Kundalini Yoga in my new studio here at SEE Knowledge Center and invite you all. Kundalini yoga is a bridge from the wisdom of ancient spiritual practice to modern living. It keeps whole the human and guides the practitioner through kriyas designed to induce specific benefits and effects. Kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan combines motion, mantra and meditation and is meant to be practiced by the ordinary person. Classes are unique and fun and there is a power that comes from practicing with others. Best of all, the kriyas and meditations are easily learned and practiced at home and becomes a part of every day life. I look forward to meeting you and sharing this beautiful technology with you. Sat Nam!

Aboutourabe Rabei Eljamal (Bhagatjot Singh)
As a teen bodybuilder and competitive weight lifter, I was far removed from the world of yoga until a debilitating back injury directed my journey towards this path. Up until that point, I was a skeptic and thought yoga was only for the old. No form of medicine or therapy gave me any lasting relief from severe back pain. As the last resort, I reluctantly opened the door to Kundalini yoga, and from that moment on, I have become a devoted yogi, and Master of Kundalini Yoga.
Ever since I've been teaching Kundalini yoga in Washington State to students of all ages and all levels, I strive for each class to be uplifting, challenging, and healing at a very deep level. As a yoga instructor, I am honored to share my story of perseverance, inner strength and conviction that lead me to discovery and liberation. I believe it is everyone's birthright to experience the peace, grace and blessings that awaken with Kundalini Yoga and meditation.
