Meet Debbie ~ Sada Ram Kaur

My passion for bodywork started at an early age. From the age of four well into my teens, I studied ballet, gymnastics and tap, modern and ballroom dancing. After the birth of my youngest daughter, I was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga and subsequently started attending Bikram Yoga classes as well as regularly running and kickboxing. I then decided to take my new-found passion a step further and signed up for a Yoga course with the School of Natural Holistic Sciences and successfully qualified with a diploma to teach Beginners Yoga. This was soon followed by an intensive Sun Power Yoga Teacher Training course in Spain, where I discovered the real meaning of yoga and indeed started a journey of self-discovery.  Or so I thought!

Yoga has taken me on a very exciting and fulfilling journey.  It has given me the confidence and inner strength to inspire others and that is my objective for every yoga lesson; to instil confidence, strength and inspiration in my students. My clients have included people of various fitness levels, different body shapes and with an array of ailments, such as back pain, arthritis, thyroid problems. I have also helped my students to manage lifelong conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia and scoliosis and have personally witnessed how Yoga helps relieve and in some cases cure such conditions. Most of all I have learnt how Yoga is not just what happens on the mat but is a way of uniting your mind, body and breath. Uniting in Yoga.

My yogic journey is a continuous one and has become my way of life. Over the years I have continued to learn about different types of yoga, attending different classes and workshops, all of which have subsequently flavoured the classes I teach. I am also very lucky to have studied at the Amrit Nam Sarovar School of Kundalini Yoga in France, which is founded by my teacher Karta Singh and ran by an amazing team of teachers.

I could not have tackled this journey alone, and my heartfelt thanks go out to those who have inspired me, those who have taught me important lessons, and those who continue to believe in me and everything I stand for.  To my devoted and dedicated husband whose endless support has been conducive to my personal growth.  To my daughters who happily put up with my early morning chanting (it doesn’t even wake them, really!) and hold the family fort while I am away either working or on training.  To my teachers, who continue to support and encourage me throughout my journey.   

 

And I have been blessed with so many amazing teachers!  Firstly, my wickedly beautiful and inspirational teacher, Anne-Marie Newland, who managed to coax out my inner strength and make me the person I am today.  She had continuous faith in me even when I didn’t and helped me through some very difficult times in my life. I owe this amazing lady so much! Thank you Siromani! And I cannot forget Rita Osborne and Shola Caroline Arewa for their ongoing support and help throughout my Sun Power Yoga Teacher Training.
Thanks also go to Norman Blair who invited me into the world of Yin yoga which influences a lot of my current yoga classes. I loved attending his monthly classes where I would literally lose myself for three hours of practicing yoga in the most meditative and peaceful state ever! Last but not least I want to thank my Kundalini family, the Kundalini team at Amrit Nam Sarovar in Le Martinet – Guru Deva Kaur, Jai Gopal, Har Nal Kaur and of course Karta Singh Khalsa, who together, are the backbone delivering my Kundalini awakening training following the lineage of Yogi Bhajan. My training has probably been the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, but I feel so ‘awakened’ that words cannot describe and feel truly honoured and humble to be embarking in the Aquarian Age with like-minded, spiritual people. Another special thank you to my Kundalini Sanghat, particularly the lovely Melanie Atkinson for being a superb room-mate, Lili Barbery-Coulon for being my angel and Harikartal for just being herself. Love and light to you all.
