Aug 1929 – Oct 2004
Born Harbhajan Singh Yogi Bhajan revealed Kundalini Yoga to the Western World in 1969 – an act that caused him to have his life threatened in his native Punjab. Kundalini Yoga was previously only secretly handed down from Master to Student after many years of study. Giving these highly guarded teachings to Westerners was sacrilege. However, Yogi Ji, as he is fondly known, recognized the aching desire of the Western World for a spiritual uplifting. For this gift we are eternally grateful.
Along with being a Kundalini and Hatha yoga master Yogi Bhajan was a religious, community and business leader with a distinguished reputation as a man of peace, world-vision, wisdom, and compassion.
“If you cannot see God in all you can not see God at all.”

A Note from Nomi:
Brought up a Bahai, I was raised to honor and respect all belief systems – or lack thereof as in the case of my formerly, atheist husband. Visiting churches synagogues, mosques, temples and gurdwaras I came to believe the Universal Source, God, Ultimate, Infinite Creative Consciousness, whatever inadequate term we might find, is completely unknowable. No matter how hard we try we’ll never truly comprehend. Though we all can experience It. I also believe no one group has all the right answers - we all have piece(s) of knowledge to share with each other. I feel we can create more glimpses of this Ultimate reality through the use of meditation, yoga, play, sharing, prayer, art therapy, chanting, music and pranayam and other tools. I learn and receive just as much healing as my guests. We are all each others’ teachers no matter what our earthly relationships.
“ If God is everywhere then there is nowhere God is not. Including inside of you.”
