Rachel Zelaya (Surinderjot Kaur) has been practicing yoga since she was 12, but her life changed dramatically when she began practicing Kundalini Yoga at age 36. She has since dedicated herself to making the practice more accessible to more people. She became a certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher in 2011 and immediately went to West Africa to teach civil war refugees Kundalini Yoga in Liberia. Upon her return, she devoted herself to the task of opening up a community-based Kundalini Yoga Center in Boulder, with the help of dozens of other teachers and students. Her mission is to make this life-changing practice available to all who are interested, and to help co-create a community center which encourages and supports transformation and spiritual evolution through many different modalities and practices. Rachel has a Master’s degree in Classics, and especially enjoys teaching women, people struggling with addiction, couples/relationship work, and working with individuals to help them heal and empower themselves to walk towards their destiny, using the tools of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. She is a Registered Psychotherapist and has certifications in the Yoga of 12 Step Recovery (combining yoga and 12 Step meetings), and SuperHealth (Kundalini Yoga for addictions, trauma and stress), as well as specialty Level 2 trainings in Authentic Relationships, Conscious Communication, and Lifecycles and LifeStyles.
