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).
