When you meet Guru Jagat you know you have met someone special, just being in her presence feels otherworldly. Sometimes I think she holds the wisdom of the universe as she shows her students at RA MA Institute in Venice, California how to use ancient techniques of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation to help upgrade their body’s operating system, and often hit a reset button.
My first class many years ago ended in my body being so sore I could barely walk, but it was a good thing. My mind felt clearer and sharper, and after a sound bath I felt lighter and more compassionate to the world. Her class feels like a sort of church or sanctuary for your mind and spirit.
Guru Jagat is the youngest senior Kundalini Yoga teacher in the world and the face of the new Kundalini movement. She is the founder of RA MA Institute for Applied Yogic Science and Technology, a premiere Yogic institute with locations in Venice, California and Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Guru Jagat’s other entrepreneurial pursuits include RA MA TV, the “Netflix” of Kundalini Yoga, and her record label RA MA Records. She has been a featured speaker at Emerging Women conference, Wonderlust Festival, Kripalu Center and the Omega Institute. Her non-profit work has culminated in the the founding of the RA MA Foundation whose mission is to introduce this fastest growing modality of Yoga, Meditation, and Wellness to underserved populations throughout the United States and abroad.
Recently, Guru Jagat was featured on Vogue’s 7 Chic New LA Wellness Gurus to be Found on Instagram for her uplifting feed. She has also had a feature segment on Entertainment Tonight and ET Tries with Alicia Keys. Recently we connected with Guru Jagat at a charity event, and we couldn’t wait to get a copy of her new book Invincible Living, The Power of Yoga, the Energy of Breath, and Other Tools for a Radiant Life. The visual book offers powerful, practical tools for both inner and outer transformation.
Kundalini Yoga offers simple poses, quick breathing exercise, short meditations that can be done by anyone, anywhere. Guru Jagat’s book empowers readers to learn yogic beauty secrets, slow the aging process, jump start metabolism, boost mood and elevate energy, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase creativity and mental clarity.
