Awtar Kaur Khalsa has been living, studying, and teaching in Kundalini Yoga ashrams since 1972. She sat at the feet of Yogi Bhajan with a notebook, timer, and camera, prompting him to remark, “She has perfect notes.” Her sense of humor and transparency help her students get real about their own practice and teaching.
She is a senior teacher trainer and has taught throughout the United States and overseas. Awtar uses generous doses of humor to inspire her students to expand, both in group and private classes.
Awtar has been married over 30 years, with one daughter who is also a Kundalini Yoga teacher and professional photographer. She is the director of The Kundalini Yoga Center in San Francisco.
