Emily Allen / Sangatpreet Kaur is a K.R.I. certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, completing her training with Hari Kaur Khalsa at the Baba Siri Chand Ashram in Millis, MA and Radiant Child Yoga training with children’s yoga pioneer, Shakta Kaur Khalsa, founder of the International Radiant Child Yoga program. Emily is also a certified Reiki Master. She completed her final training in Hawaii with William Lee Rand, founder and president of the International Center for Reiki Training.
Kundalini Yoga unites a lifelong interest in holistic modalities, movement, and natural rhythms. A longing for a deeper personal practice led Emily to a variety of yoga styles, meditation techniques, and ultimately to Kundalini Yoga. Her wish is that everyone, young and old, can experience how this powerful yet practical yogic approach can heal your life. In her classes, she seeks to celebrate the infinite potential and truth that lies within each of us.
Her professional life includes more than 15 years in marketing, most recently as a director of marketing and communication prior to a soul-urging experience prompting the decision to go on an extended sabbatical to focus on healing and creative arts. Emily holds a B.A. in Communication from the University of New Hampshire.
Philip / Sat Nam Singh is a long time student, new teacher: Kundalini Yoga has been a feature of his ife since 1983 when he began studying with Gurucharan Singh Khalsa. This Yoga has been a good, trusted and patient friend, always there when he wants or needs it, never complaining when he neglects or appears to abandon it. The teacher training, based at the Baba Siri Chand Ashram in Millis, MA in 2010-11, was a catapult for deepening his practice and a catalyst for sharpening his commitment to practicing.
In this long life he has been a carpenter (10 years); a personal growth workshop and business leader (10 years); and is currently a leadership trainer for a global consulting company (15 years); and (the most exciting roles of his life as) a happy husband and father of two extraordinary boys.
Kundalini Yoga is the vocation that is taking him into the next phase of life, enabling him to continue to deliberately live his life’s mission: to contribute to world peace by teaching people how to create fulfillment and peace within themselves (and hopefully their community and their world).
Karta Kaur took her first Kundalini Yoga class in 1978 and immediately became hooked. She took Teacher Training here in Cambridge at that time and taught for 5 years before taking a “sabbatical” for 28 years. During those years she has raised 3 sons and become an oncology nurse working primarily with patients facing end of life issues and practiced other forms of yoga. When Kundalini Yoga Boston opened Karta was one of our first students. She completed Teacher Training Level 1 at KYB in September 2012. Coming home to Kundalini Yoga after all these years has brought great joy and focus into her life and she feels blessed to be able to share the teachings in this community.

Devi Dyal has been practicing yoga for twenty years. In 1998 she became a certified Kripalu Yoga instructor which she taught for ten years. In 2000 she began practicing Kundalini Yoga taking classes with Gurucharan Singh. While living in Espanola New Mexico she took the Immersion Course to become a Certified K.R.I Kundalini Yoga instructor in 2005. She taught yoga to both students and teachers in elementary and high schools. While teaching children she developed a light and playful style which carries over well into adult classes. In addition to teaching yoga Devi Dyal is a psychotherapist. She received her MSW from Boston University with a concentration in youth and families. Having worked in clinics, hospitals, businesses and schools she is currently in private practice. She integrates the technology of yoga and meditation into a wholistic; mind,body, soul psychospiritual approach.
As a recent graduate of the KRI Teacher Training at Kundalini Yoga Boston, Emily brings a newcomer’s curiosity and delight to her Kundalini classes. Classes are open to all ability levels and those who have had little success with other types of movement are encouraged to attend. Music, chanting, meditation, Kriyas that incorporate dance, and Gong relaxation all feature prominently. Emily loves the hidden treasure of rarely used Kriyas and enjoys highlighting these in class. Emily was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis three years ago and has been practicing Kundalini nearly as long. She considers the technology her saving grace and is honored to be the vessel in which this science can be passed on to others.
All of our teachers are certified and insured Kundalini Yoga teachers.
