Siri Bahadur has been engaged throughout his life in the pursuit of truth and what the essence of the being is. From the roots of Catholicism through forays into Buddhism, New Age theisms, and philosophy, he finally came to the Science of Kundalini yoga where he has found home and a practice which takes him where he wants to be. He started practicing this style of yoga in 1974 with a hearty exploration diluted with his old ways of being, namely those of "hippiedom". In 1996, under the guidance of Yogi Bhajan, he took the first master’s touch teacher training.
Deborah Kern's years of practice as a nurse, health educator, personal trainer, yoga and Nia teacher, and yoga therapist have given her lifestyle insights not found in books. She has become very aware that when people live their lives disconnected from their bodies’ messages, they do not only miss out on the wisdom of their bodies and opportunities to heal emotional issues but they are also more likely to experience stress and disease. She is a black belt Nia teacher, certified Integral Hatha yoga instructor, Phoenix Rising Yoga's therapist and mindful change coach.
In 1999, Sarah took her first teacher training; a combined Hatha and Kundalini training at Santa Monica Yoga, followed by a second training at the same studio with Julian Walker and Rick Gould. Sarah teaches both Hatha and Kundalini yoga suitable for all levels, inspired by the lineages of Krishnamacharya, Iyengar, Patabhi Jois (Ashtanga), and Yogi Bhajan (Kundalini). She teaches students to listen to their inner teacher, while building strength and flexibility, increasing mobility and energy, and enhancing relaxation and discipline. She has also experience in healing arts and massage therapy.
Angie Knight has studied yoga, shamanism, and other healing arts for over 16 years. She has taught thousands of public and private yoga classes and leads workshops, mentorships, training, and retreats, both nationally and internationally. She has studied various yoga lineages, but her main teacher has been her own practice, personal experience and life itself. She considers herself a student of life and has learned to embrace what is happening in the moment as the ultimate guide to awakened living. Her teaching is loving, compassionate, and empowering.
Dana discovered yoga through a voice teacher who incorporated yoga asana into the art of singing when she was only fifteen years old. Having already suffered from a number of eating disorders, severe anxiety, and depression, yoga and singing together created a safe space where being in her body didn’t seem so bad. Having spent her childhood traveling between Israel and Texas, “home” was a loosely defined word. Yoga became a major building block in the long process of making her body into her home.
Laura or Guru Karam began her life-long yoga practice at the age of 16 at a Kundalini Yoga Ashram in Houston, Texas. She is certified in Kundalini yoga, Hatha yoga, and Ashtanga yoga and is a level one and level two Kundalini yoga teacher trainer. She has presented classes internationally on Gong Yoga Nidra, the art of deep relaxation with the gong, and brings a feminine perspective to the art of playing the gong for meditation and relaxation. A registered nurse, she teaches anatomy and physiology in teacher training courses and is a guest lecturer in other yoga teacher training courses.

Lyndsay is a 500-hour certified Hatha teacher, a level one yoga therapist, and a certified Kundalini yoga teacher. Her teaching style is very calming and grounding, with an emphasis placed upon inner guidance, safety, and function-over-form. She modifies each session for the energetic of the day and deepens each practice and relaxation by incorporating the healing sounds of the gong. Lyndsay’s therapeutic approach to teaching is influenced by vedic astrology, Ayurveda, sound therapy, and the chakra system.
Kimberly began her teaching journey in 2002, after her 200-hour training in NYC in ISHTA Yoga (Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda) with Alan Finger. After relocating to Los Angeles, Kimberly was named in Backstage Magazine’s ‘Best of L.A.’ under favorite yoga class. While in Los Angeles, Kimberly had the opportunity to teach for Team Survivor, a non-profit organization providing free healing modules for women living with cancer and continues similar work here at Cancer Rehab Austin. She holds a lighthearted space, focusing on breath, alignment, and self inquiry.
Jenny has been a student of yoga for close to 25 years and has been teaching for almost 10.

Taking the time to nourish my body, mind, and soul with the treasures of yoga is my highest priority. The One Yoga retreats vacation in Tulum was the most powerful experience I have ever had in enhancing being well so deeply and fully.

I had never done Kundalini yoga before, and I was not a huge yogi by any stretch, but I planned this as a birthday gift to myself and boy I was thrilled with how it all turned out. This was eye-opening and truly spectacular for me in so many ways. I went not knowing anybody, nor being a true yogi - and I left with a new family and passion for yoga. I think that speaks volumes.

At a much-needed time in my life, I signed up for a few days at the beach and experienced a mind-altering week of amazing bodywork, flawless beaches, and fantastic yoga. Thank you to One Yoga collectively, Laura Forsyth, and all the teachers for leading the experience. The personal effects of this journey are far more wide-ranging than you will ever know. Thank you.

I’ve been on four trips with One Yoga Global. It’s been an "om-tabulous" experience each time. The planning, logistics, itineraries, value in what you pay for, and positivity are just top notch. They are all supportive, comfortable environments for each person to get what they need out of a retreat. It’s hard to describe what being immersed in that kind of energy for a week is like. I dig it.
