I'm a girl who loves yoga, veggie food, independent cafes, colour mixing and clay, drawing blindfold, walking in the woods and ambling barefoot doing cartwheels on a beach.
I am a professional artist with a PhD in Ceramics, I'm a teacher of drawing and ceramics and I'm a yogini. I practice meditation and yoga every day and I love to be in or near water, woodland and mountains.
I have trained as a Reiki practitioner Levels 1 & 2 with Lorraine Rees in Swansea, as a Chakra Healer with Acharya Yogesh in Goa and as an Kundalini Yoga instructor in Glastonbury with Karam Kriya Yoga School (IKYTA, KYTA, KRI).
MY SPIRITUAL JOURNEY
I was first introduced to yoga and spiritual practises in 2003 whilst working in a cafe in a holistic therapy centre called 'The Source'.
I practised Ashtanga Yoga for 10 years and trained in Reiki healing, however during that time it was my passion for creative expression in colour and clay that took me on the most profound journey of personal transformation and growth, through self-reflection and self-healing.
Whilst travelling in India in 2014, I found myself drawn to go deeper into the origins of yoga:, the union of mind, body and soul. It was on this trip that the magical and transformative practice of Kundalini Yoga called me to my present path.
My Kundalini Yoga teacher training began in 2015 at Karam Kriya Yoga School who held a training in Glastonbury, under the guidance and instruction of the founder of the school Shiv Charan Singh, the lead trainer Anghad Kaur and assistant trainer Preet Kaur.
I first shared the empowering teachings of Yogi Bhajan in Cardiff on February 29th 2016 (leap day) and continue to do so from a little yoga studio in Roath, Cardiff called 'The Courtyard Studio' (just off Wellfield Rd), at Llanover Hall Arts Centre in Canton, Cardiff, The Tramshed Studio on Pendyris Rd, Cardiff and occasionally at 'Diana Brook Yoga with Soul' studio in Caerphilly and 'Yurt in the City' in Canton.
Amarjot Kaur trained for the KRI Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Instructor Certificate with Karam Kriya School in Glastonbury, 2016 (certfied by IKYTA, KYTA and KRI). Amarjot Kaur also trained as a Starchild children's Yoga Teacher with Siri Arti in London 2018 (certified by KYTA).
Meaning of my given spiritual name Amarjot Kaur
Amar means undying, continuous or beyond time. Jot refers to light. Kaur is a name that all women receive - the Princess/Lioness of God who walks with grace and power throughout her life. Yogi Bhajan taught that every woman has the potential to attain this divine state and encouraged all to manifest it.
