“I knew that my time Grounded By Yoga Teacher Training  course would be life-changing, I just had no idea how it would all manifest. I could not be happier with how it unfolded. The people in the course were amazing, and all of Grounded By Yoga facilitators were incredible. I Look forward to sharing what I have learned as what I have received here is too much for me to keep locked inside of me. I leave here with open eyes and an open heart, and with overflowing joy.”
- Janey, Rochester, NY
“My Yoga Teacher Training at GBY was a course in how to live. It not only taught us how to teach but how to deepen our own practice so that we become what we are teaching.” -

Deepen Your Practice

with Kundalini (and Luc Watelet)

Learn More!

Yogi Bhajan became master of Kundalini Yoga at 16 when his teacher, and then master of Kundalini Yoga decided to become a freedom fighter. There could only be one master of Kundalini Yoga at any given time on planet Earth. He came to America in 1968 knowing he could have had a safe government career. He could have taught Hatha yoga which was already accepted in America at the time as he was a master of Hatha yoga as well. But instead he broke the seal of secrecy of Kundalini Yoga and taught it publicly. His first lecture was given on January 5th, 1969, at a high school gym. He was 39 at the time. No one showed up. He did not have here the reputation he had in India. He was asked if he wanted to reschedule. He told the organizers that he would give his lecture, they should tape it, but he would not teach the lecture again. During his life he made teachers, he helped politicians and CEOs, he met with the Pope. He told us he would not want the pope’s job because the pope wasn’t free. Today his 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) organization is present around the world. Sat Nam,Luc
Time: Tuesdays  5:30-6:45pm in East Bloomfield.
