The yogini

KAVALJEET KAUR, 25, Yoga ex­pert

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI COVER STORY -

Youth­ful dy­namism co­ex­ists with the an­cient phi­los­o­phy of yoga in 25 year-old Kavaljeet Kaur. A guest lec­turer at the Post Grad­u­ate In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Re­search, Chandi­garh, Kaur is cur­rently in­volved in ‘My Yoga Project’, teach­ing yoga to the un­der­priv­i­leged in col­lab­o­ra­tion with a lo­cal NGO, Yu­vsatta. In 2010, Kaur launched Yog cafe, a no­madic yoga stu­dio wherein she uses es­tab­lished dance stu­dios across cities to hold yoga classes. This saves on rent. “Cus­tomers end up pay­ing less and it's a win-win sit­u­a­tion for all.” Yog Café has stu­dios in Chandi­garh, Mum­bai and Rishikesh and also con­ducts work­shops at Dell, APG Ce­ment, Maple Bear, the Govern­ment Col­lege for Girls, SD Col­lege and Nari Nike­tan, Chandi­garh.

SOUL CURRY “The very rit­ual of rolling the mat and do­ing asanas con­nects me with my in­ner self,” says Kaur. “Hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced bal­ance in my life through yoga, I am now shar­ing it with oth­ers.” The yoga en­tre­pre­neur re­ceived her train­ing from Kaivalyad­ham (Lon­avala), The Yoga In­sti­tute, San­tacruz (Mum­bai) and Rishikesh.
