Inner Peace is a Conscious Choice

March 7, 2011

Our global village is in a state of flux.
We open our eyes to a country in flood, go to bed to reports of yet another fire/earthquake/tsunami, blink and a dictatorship falls. Some say this is simply a taste of things to come when the Age of Aquarius comes into being on December 21, 2012 – the last day of the Mayan Long Count calendar. Others believe that it is all ultimately man’s doing.

But if the experts disagree on what this new era will bring – rebellion or peace; individual anarchy or collective consciousness – they surely would agree that when your external environment is beyond your control it’s time to look to the one space you have the power to change – your inner being.

About Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa

Affectionately known as “Gurmukh”, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa is the co-founder and director of The Golden Bridge in Los Angeles, where she teaches Kundalini Yoga and Meditation to her students, who range from the general Joe Public to Madonna, Cindy Crawford and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, (who wrote a song about her).

You would never know just by meeting this gentle, humble being that she is America’s most beloved yogi, having featured in the New York Times, Vogue, InStyle, Spin and Rolling Stone. But don’t be fooled into thinking that this woman in her sixth decade is just another “pseudo expert” made famous by Oprah or the popular press.

A devoted yoga teacher of 32 years, Gurmukh has been practicing and imparting her knowledge through countless hours of teaching, literature and community service, living the yogic lifestyle of vegetarian food, meditation, healing and seva, (selfless service to others), which she inspires in people around the world. If you are so lucky to spend a few hours with Gurmukh, you will soon realise that, while it is the ancient art of Kundalini Yoga that she practices, it is consciousness and wisdom that she ultimately teaches.

About Kundalini Yoga

Like most yoga traditions, Kundalini uses the traditional asanas and postures, but in a form that incorporates an aspect of pranayama, (breathwork), mantras, (sacred words) and mudras, (symbolic hand gestures) into every session. Practiced largely with the eyes closed, Kundalini focuses on the pituitary gland, or “third eye,” and aims to channel the “energy of consciousness.”

The result is a daily practice that is at once physically demanding and spiritually challenging.
