|Ranvir Singh took his first class of Kundalini Yoga in 2001 at the Guru Ram Das Ashram in San Francisco. That experience was as if he had “come home”, he quickly felt “transformed” by this sacred technology and made it an important part of his daily living. In order to deepen his yoga practice and to share this technology with others, Ranvir became a certified Kundalini Research Institute (KRI) Teacher.
His classes are eclectic in style and designed to give the student a complete experience of the Kundalini Yoga technology. He is both, a teacher and a student while he continues on his personal journey to complete the Level-2 Practitioner certification. This will augment his ability to continue to share the physical, spiritual, and life transforming benefits of Kundalini Yoga; to enrich the classroom experience; and to “serve and uplift individuals to be healthy, happy and holy.”
