Today's guest is Simona, aka Dharma Devi, a professional yoga and meditation teacher, as well as a dance educator. She's been practicing yoga and meditation since she was 9 years old.
She entered the Kundalini Yoga community in 2000/2001, and even though the red flags were quite red, she didn't listen to her intuition, and started her path within the 3HO/Kundalini community anyway.
She graduated from KY TT in Rome,Italy in 2003, and as an Associate Teacher Trainer officially in 2012. During this time frame, she alsa graduated as a Shakti Dance Instructor, which is a technology that is based on Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. She graduated as a Lead Trainer for this discipline in 2012.
She taught Shakti Dance at the summer and winter solstice until 2017, when she started to realize something was wrong within the community.
In 2019, she left and broke ties with KY and SD, which has been so painful, after being ostracized and dedicating her entire life to these two technologies.
She’s grateful for her background as an artist because the pain of letting everything go, has been excruciating. She graduated in 2004 from the University of Turin, Italy, in History and Anthropology of Dance and Theater. She currently owns her own business teaching ancient movement and dance healing practices including her sacred modality Kundalini Rhythms Dance. She loves guiding people back to their power through the joy and sacredness of dance and Qigong.
