"Recently the date was set for surgery to remove my left breast. I asked the doctors to check the cells and the tests showed that I am completely healthy. There is no evidence of cancer. So the surgery was cancelled. The practice of Kundalini Yoga and the meditations really made a difference."

We will learn how to identify and meet the student at their starting point, mobilize inner resources, understand and work with the process of change. We will explore the unique structure of a therapeutic Kundalini Yoga class and the layering model of teaching Kundalini Yoga to people with health conditions.
