Yoga Background

I began practicing yoga and meditation in a Catholic high school in NYC in 1970. Several years later I met Yogi Bhajan,* who brought Kundalini Yoga to the US. I studied and corresponded with him until his passing. He gave me the name, Hari Kirin — Hari is the Creative Feminine aspect of God and Kirin is a focused beam of light that can cut through the darkness.

I find Kundalini Yoga and Meditation deeply satisfying. The practice is as helpful to me now in my fifties as it was in my twenties (and thirties & forties). The teachings are deep and varied and although I study and practice daily, I still find it fresh, uplifting and surprising. I am also inspired by varied readings and study in Zen & Wabi- Sabi, Tibetan Buddhism, the Gospels and the writings of mystics both east and west.

I have been teaching Kundalini Yoga for twenty-five years and am a KRI Certified Lead Teacher Trainer, which means I train students to become yoga teachers. I teach at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Omega Institute, the Antrim Girls Shelter, and at Kundalini Art and Yoga at the Union Mill in Peterborough, NH.
