Inspired to serve and learn from his teacher, Yogi Bhajan, Siri Marka taught his first Kundalini Yoga class over 38 years ago. With a smile and a grace he delivers vigorous and heart opening yoga kriyas and meditations from Yogi Bhajan’s original weekly classes. Siri Marka is known to speak with joy and from the heart. When he is not teaching, he keeps fit by running the L.A. Marathon, which he has done for the last twelve years. You can also see him as a Yogic Coach and Counselor in his Beverly Hills office. With love, humor and a dose of truth, Siri Marka will help propel you to the next level in your spiritual evolution. He trains Kundalini Yoga teachers at yoga centers in the US and teaches workshops and classes internationally.
Meherbani Kaur Khalsa first met Yogi Bhajan in 1969 while attending UCLA and began studying with him shortly afterward. From 1972 to 1984, she lived at various ashrams, studying with teachers like Guru Singh from Los Angeles, Guru Charan from Millis, and the musician Vikram Singh from San Diego.
She has practiced and taught Kundalini Yoga most of her adult life. She teaches from her heart with simplicity and humor. Besides being a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga teacher and a Kundalini Yoga teacher trainer, Meherbani also practices and teaches Yogi Bhajan’s healing art of Sat Nam Rasayan®. She is one of a handful of practitioners that have been designated by Guru Dev Singh, founder of the School of Sat Nam Rasayan® as teachers of this modality.
