Season 2, Episode 271: Charanpal Kaur – Yoga Instructor & Recording Artist

Today’s guest is Charanpal Kaur. Charanpal is a devoted KRI-Certified Kundalini yoga teacher, Khalsa Way prenatal consultant, Yin Yoga instructor, and recording artist. After studying Hatha yoga for over a decade, her curiosity led her to try something new. She was completely struck by how positively different she felt after her first Kundalini class, and developed a loving relationship with this ancient science and technology.


Teaching Kundalini Yoga has been a great honor for Charanpal. She witnesses profound transformations in her students as they empower themselves with the awareness that who they truly are is a pure, radiant, and healthy Being.

As a recording artist, Charanpal is inspired by the folk music of her youth, such as Joni Mitchell, Peter, Paul & Mary, and Cat Stevens. In developing her own style, she has enjoyed mixing poetry in English with the traditional Gurbani mantras that Master Teacher, Yogi Bhajan, shared with the yogis of the west.

With a thirst for travel and learning about different cultures, Charanpal leads retreats and workshops world-wide. She is honored to call Santa Cruz, CA, her home, where she resides in the redwoods with her two cats and four alpacas.
