Sada Sat Khalsa 

Sada Sat Kaur’s lifelong love of music and singing crossed paths with

Kundalini Yoga in 1970 when she began practicing Kundalini Yoga and

Naad Yoga (the Yoga of Sound). She continues to lead workshops and

train teachers world wide, both online and in person, bringing the

power and transformational energy of chanting, meditation, yoga, and

Women’s Teachings to people everywhere.

Sada Sat Kaur’s ashram home, the Yoga Borgo, in beautiful Umbria, Italy,

is the realization of the dream of Sada Sat Kaur and Sada Sat Singh, her

beloved husband, to create a welcoming, sacred, heart-centered place

for seekers and practitioners on the spiritual path.

All that is necessary to awaken to yourself as the radiant emptiness of spirit is to stop seeking something more or better or different, and to turn your attention inward to the awake silence that you are.
