Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa

Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa was baptized in 1972 by her spiritual teacher and Kundalini Yoga master Yogi Bhajan with the Sikh spiritual name “Gurmukh,” meaning “one who helps people across the world ocean.” Since that time, Gurmukh has dedicated her life to fulfilling her namesake.

For nearly three decades, students in Los Angeles and from around the world have sought out her classes in Kundalini Yoga, meditation, and pre-and post-natal care. She currently works closely with the Amrit Davaa World Health Organization to bring much needed medical supplies and attention to orphanages in India, Tibet, and Mexico. She is the creator of The Khalsa Way Prenatal and Postnatal Teacher Training Program, now in its 30th year.

Gurmukh is author of The 8 Human Talents: Restore the Balance and Serenity Within You With Kundalini Yoga and Bountiful, Beautiful, Blissful: Experience the Natural Power of Pregnancy and Birth With Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. She has also produced three DVDs, including Prenatal Kundalini Yoga and Meditation for Mothers To Be, Postnatal Kundalini Yoga for New Mothers, and Kundalini Yoga With Gurmukh. She leads workshops and trains yoga teachers throughout the world, and films Kundalini Yoga for Indian television station, KLM.

Gurmukh also cofounded Golden Bridge Yoga, a premier center for Kundalini Yoga and meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan in Los Angeles, California, and New York City.

Gurmukh resides in Los Angeles with her husband Gurushabd Singh Khalsa and their many dogs. They also travel worldwide, leading teacher training programs and bringing the teachings of Kundalini Yoga throughout the United States, Mexico, Europe, Russia, India, and South Africa. Their daughter Wahe Guru Kaur also teaches Kundalini Yoga and works alongside her parents in fulfilling this mission.
