Guru Jaswant Kaur Khalsa at Chayo Studio

Posted by huihsien on 30 Oct 09

Born into a Sikh family in New Mexico, USA, Guru Jaswant Kaur Khalsa was raised in a community where spiritual development was a way of life. At the age of 9, her parents sent her to a boarding school in India where she spent 7 years learning Sikh culture, language and philosophy. During then, Guru Jaswant was exposed to yoga as part of the school’s curriculum but only began to appreciate and practise it seriously back in the US while undergoing her tertiary studies.

Guru Jaswant’s passion for Kundalini Yoga and Bhangra Dance coupled with her fun and lively methods of teaching have attracted students from different age groups. She believes that yoga and dance help to connect, energize and uplift the body, mind and spirit.

I think we have met before, that we spent a whole day together at Elaine’s place. I come most week ends to KL to improve my own specialty which is Mime and Body theatre. I even to do a short choreography in 2010. I have met people here who are Yoga instructors and told me about Yoga Dance. I am in KL right now and will attend a Belly Dance class taught by one of those Yoga instructors, a person who has become a friend and with whom I share many common ideas. She uses pranayama for dancing, I tryed it for Samba and other Latin American dances. To make it short, my main teacher is Elaine but I haven’t seen her lately and I would like to know more about Yoga Dance, nutrition, and go deep into myself to find that tiny flame that must be nurtured. I am in an internet centre so if ever you have time to tell me what to do without spendind the whole week away from my family, this is my h,p number 0164725430.
Om shanti.
