Kartar Singh passion is to create experiences by which people can learn. He’s a trained and certified KY teacher and KY teacher trainer who has been practicing and studying KY since the early 70’s. He loves it because it’s a path of physical yoga, and much more—it’s really a path for those who want to get growing.
Friends will tell you that he’s in love with everything spiritual — everything that has to do with letting out the Spirit, the smile, the joy, the heart and soul of the person. He’s used all kinds of spiritual teachers and teachings to learn. He would say that “if you cannot be a teacher to yourself, then you have nothing to share with others. ”
His principal teacher is Yogi Bhajan and his love is to learn the depth of Kundalini Yoga. Once when he went to visit YB, he told him “you have an angel that sits on your right shoulder. You earned it. When you walked in that angel blew itself up big and told me to tell you ‘if you don’t start teaching I should stand you up on your head’”. Kartar started teaching. Yogi Bhajan once said— “when people meet Kartar they won’t know what to make of him. And after they get to know him they will never forget him.”
