“The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind & the harmony of the soul, create the symphony of life”
Maitri Shakti Kaur is a long time student, new teacher.
Maitri has been practising many styles of Yoga and Meditation including
Kundalini, Iyengar, Jivamukti, Restorative, Yin and Dru Yoga; exploring the art of mindfulness from the Zen Buddhist teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh and deepening her experience with 5 Rhythms which is a form of active meditation created by Gabrielle Roth.
Maitri has trained as a Kundalini Yoga teacher with Sky in 2011-12, taught and mentored by Guru Dharam Kalsa. In 2011 she has successfully completed a course with Siri Arti Kaur, founder of“Starchild” (Yoga for children age 4 to 16), bringing a creative and fun aspect to her teaching which not only children benefitted from but probably even more so her adult students. She complemented this training with the “Clown Therapy” course in 2009 for children recovering in hospital.
She has also been a certified Reiki facilitator-healer since 2008.
Kundalini yoga has been the most powerful tool she has come across in her journey of self discovery through all the various disciplines she practiced and trained on, for the personal experience it gave her to inspire others in the same path.
At present, she volunteers at a rehab centre – “Crouston Oak Lodge” and“The Passage” – a charities for homeless where she share the teaching to help on recovering from addiction with alcohol and drugs.
Complementing her yoga practice, she also teach how to integrate Ayurvedic nutrition into her students daily lives to improve the functioning of the systems in the physical, mental and spiritual body.
