Harkamal Kaur (Kim Giglio), KRI Certified

Harkamal Kaur

Kim believes one of the biggest challenges in life is to find meaning in what we do and who we are. While in the midst of a career change, this belief is what ultimately led her to register on a whim for a week long workshop, “The Radiant Power of Women.” This was Kim’s first experience with Kundalini yoga. The practice ignited a spark from deep within, a sense of freedom like never before. Intrigued and curious, she committed to the practice and never looked back. It was this dedication that propelled her forward and opened the door to a whole new reality and perspective on life. Kim realized that she was looking outside herself to feel better and for someone else to fix her. From her own experience she found the structure and discipline that was needed to create a healthier lifestyle, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Kim has transformed her life in ways she did not think were possible. She has learned what it means to love, honor and respect oneself and is making higher level choices from a healthier place within.

Kim completed her teacher training in Cape Town, South Africa under the guidance of Gurmukh, Gurushabd and Guru Dharam.

Kundalini yoga has aided Kim in living a more self-expressed and contributive life. It is her intention that it will do the same for her students. It is an honor and privilege to support others on this journey; the journey of one’s own soul.
