Today’s guest is Taran Kaur. Her birth and original name was Alice, and she started practicing Kundalini Yoga in 2014 (late 20s) following guidance from 3HO’s website on Kriyas, meditations and doing many 40 days practices with them.
Through this she quit drinking alcohol and focused on getting on the mat everyday rather than nursing a hangover. Alice continued to practice Kundalini Yoga with teachers on Youtube, at the end of 2016 after switching to health care and doing Radiant Body Kriya for 40 days she realised the reality of the destructive relationship she was in with her partner of nine years, left and returned home.
Alice went on to study Kundalini Yoga Level 1 at Sahej TT, in the UK with Hari Har Kaur and Sat Siri Singh in 2017. following a calling to finally teach Yoga after years of practice and styles (Hatha in teens, Bikram in early 20s), here she got given the name Ajeet Amrita Kaur.
Through the training Alice/Ajeet fell in love with the Sikh Dharma and went to Khalsa Camp to discover it’s depth, Alice/Ajeet went on to learn and embrace Sikhi from more Sikh camps, was blessed with Amrit in 2018 and given the name Taran Kaur, then legally changed it to Taranjeet-Kaur to honour a Kundalini background, ironically she has always shortened it to Taran.
Taran (now 31) is navigating married life, mother to one daughter named Satnaam Kaur Evie. She ditched Kundalini Yoga in 2020 and continues rising early to meditate, is studying to be a therapist and makes Art in any free time she has.
