What is Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga?
Our Birth Story:
The Khalsa Way was founded by Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa in 1995. She was already an established Kundalini Yoga teacher and was a student of Yogi Bhajan. When pregnant women started coming to her regular Kundalini class she realized a great need for the teaching to be specialized for mama’s to be. Yogi Bhajan gave Gurmukh his blessing to translate the teachings for the pregnancy community. And so it began. Starting with just a few mamas in her home, it has grown over 20 years supporting Khalsa Way teachers and communities all over the word.
WHAT MAKES KHALSA WAY UNIQUE
Our prenatal yoga is designed to support you and your baby mentally, spiritually and physically throughout your pregnancy, birth and the first three years of life. It is empowering, educating and builds communities of like minded parents. We know that the child begins its life journey when it enters its mother’s womb. That is why we believe it is so important for women to feel safe, sacred and supported in this very special time.
The Khalsa Way practice is dynamic like Kundalini Yoga, but is adapted for pregnancy. The movements and postures are drawn from many lineages of yoga, but the fundamentals, meditations and chants come from the practice of Kundalini. It is a powerful and graceful practice designed for all types of women in pregnancy. It is playful and prayerful and a time to connect with other pregnant women to share the universal and unique experiences of becoming a mother. All classes will be catered to all levels, giving each woman a chance to practice at her own pace.
Wah is the daughter of Gurmukh and teaches from the experience of being the first Khalsa Way baby.
