Discovered Kundalini Yoga in 2006 during a time of personal trauma and stress caused by the recent death of her mother coinciding with her son’s motorcycle accident injury. Her career as a Chartered Financial Consultant and owner of a national insurance agency added additional stress at this difficult time. The Kundalini Yoga Center became a blessed place of refuge as the nurturing, healing power of Kundalini yoga began to uplift and transform anguish into tranquility and anger into love. Her enormous gratitude and love for the teachings, and for the amazing teachers/yogi’s at the Baba Siri Chand Ashram inspired her to complete the teacher training program there in December of 2007 and to begin sharing this beautiful, life-changing technology with others. Using Kundalini Yoga asana’s and meditations, her classes aim to focus on healing physical, emotional, and psychological wounds so that others may begin to live happier, healthier, and holier lives just as she did. Since retiring, Lois (Satjot Kaur), divides her time between her home on the Big Island of Hawaii, where she also shares her love of Kundalini Yoga, and here.
