Harold – Sham Sunder means Beautiful Calmness
Harold’s journey into Kundalini Yoga began at retreat in Bali some 9 years ago where he fell in love with the practice as he recognised the parallels between the Kundalini and Tibetan Buddhist philosophies, which he studied earlier in life.
It has changed his life for the better and helped him to be in peace with himself and he has witnessed similar transformations in many of his fellow KY students.
Harold soon felt his calling to spread the teachings of Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and he completed the KRI certified Level 1 teacher training in 2013 and has been a passionate KY and mediation instructor ever since.
In the years between 2014 and 2017 he underwent the KRI Level 2 training, which substantially deepened his understanding of KY and helped him to slowly understand the programming of his subconsciousness.
“I have learned so much about myself since I started with Kundalini Yoga, which would have not been possible without the inspirations and support of the teachings.
I have realised that the essence of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation not only happens in class on the matt but has become an attitude and life style choice that is intertwined with every situation in my life, which creates a fundamental feeling of peace, bliss and happiness, whatever the day brings.
And it is this experience that I am committed to share with everyone who decides to come to class.”
TUESDAY 6.45 - 8pm
THURSDAY 6.45 - 8pm
Sat Ajeet is a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga teacher.
I have been teaching at KYC for the past 3 years. Although I practiced other yoga styles and Tibetan Buddhist meditation for many years, as soon as I discovered Kundalini Yoga, I was hooked.
I felt its power immediately. It transforms me. The solution-oriented teaching provides me with tools to face the world. It connects me to my core frequency.
I enjoy sharing this powerful positive practice with others to enriches one’s life and uplifts the world.
FRIDAY - FULL & NEW MOONS
7pm - 8.30pm
I’m Eilish Bouchier. I help people become their most embodied and influential selves. I’ve helped thousands of people own and tell their stories and master their energy during my 30 years of design, branding and somatic work. Some have built successful and meaningful businesses and careers, others have co-created projects and communities. Each of them is driven to create impact and income, using their businesses and lives as a force for good.
I discovered Kundalini yoga in 2010 and deeply felt I had found my daily practice. A year later I found my teacher and became one too. Since then I have passionately practiced, studied and shared these teachings (and others) in my design practice, business programs, lunar workshops and more, as a way of meeting this adventure called life with grace, grit and always with humour, as it presents us with its gifts and challenges as an opportunity to grow.

What is Sadhana and why do I need it?
The essential idea of Sadhana is it’s a spiritual daily practice where we can apply the activities to nurture the qualities to which we aspire. In the Amrit Vela, early hours of the morning we take time to allow that sweetness inside us to blossom and create habits and actions aligned with a greater intent. An intent to be the best version of ourselves, living with gratitude, love, compassion, kindness, and feeding our soulful selves.
Sadhana can be a personal practice and yet when we bring ourselves, together, closer as a group, a community, our individual consciousness is magnified by the group energy. Group Sadhana is a path we travel together, a guide in leading us to a happier and healthier life. It can be meditative and physical. It is also musical and quiet and provides the stillness to deal better with life’s changes.
Join your kundalini community in the Amrit Vela every second Saturday for the Japji, poem by Guru Nanak, then Kundalini kriya, followed by the Aquarian mantras. This powerful, transformational 2.5 hours will be lead by one of our passionate serving Kundalini teachers
Saturday mornings 5am-730am

Hi, I arrived in Sydney from England in 2019 and completed my kundalini yoga training with Karam Kriya school in London and Portugal.
I guess I stumbled into kundalini yoga in 2015, the only yoga class I could find nearby when on holiday was a kundalini retreat. I already had several years experience with Hatha, Yin and Bikram and although I didn’t realise at that time, my first kundalini yoga experience had a big impact, soon becoming my daily practice.
For me, the literal meaning of yoga to ‘yoke or ‘join’ or ‘unite’ can take many different forms and the beauty of kundalini yoga teachings is the uniting of our oneness through movement, breath, sound and meditation, especially when we come together to practice. The power of community, our Sangat is profound. I am particularly interested in the way the teachings can help us lead an expanded and full life and how we can use them for helping those suffering from trauma and mental challenges. The technology works!!
Also, with my interest in numerology (Karam Kriya is after all the study of numbers and how their intelligence influences our spiritual consciousness) I want to further explore the opportunity in using the teachings to help humankind both individually and collectively. I have experienced the positivity that comes from practising kundalini yoga and the life changing impact it can have. I am here to share and help others personally experience the fullness and oneness of these amazing teachings.
Ameeta (Amy) has undergone training in Hatha and Kundalini yoga traditions. She has a strong interest in yogic philosophy, pranayam, meditation and mantra and incorporates these into her teaching. She has also completed courses in ayurvedic lifestyle and experienced various meditation styles (Raja yoga, vipassana).
In her day job, Ameeta works as an Integrative GP in Surry Hills combining functional medicine, coaching, ayurvedic lifestyle and yoga, to help achieve optimal health and wellness for her patients.
Stress is ubiquitous these days and contributes significantly to many health issues. It affects all parts of our being including the gut, thyroid, adrenal glands and other hormone systems. Everything is inter-related.
Ameeta likes to embrace aspects of yoga practice that help to balance and strengthen the the nervous and immune systems, including emphasis on pranayam and meditation.
