Barbara Cox first practiced yoga as a high school student. Years later, she was inspired by her then five year old daughter to return to yoga. She discovered Kundalini Yoga seven years ago and was awed by its transformative power. Barbara completed a 200 hour Kundalini Yoga teacher training in 2006 with Hari Kaur Khalsa and has also studied with Gurmukh, Christina Sillari, and Ravi Singh.
Barbara teaches Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, who introduced this ancient form of yoga to the western world in 1969. Kundalini yoga weaves together asana, rhythmic movement, pranayam, mantra and meditation in a dynamic, energizing, relaxing and contemplative practice that promotes physical, mental, spiritual and emotional energetic healing in our daily lives. The practice opens us to joy. As one yogi has put it: "After a hatha yoga class, I want to meditate; after a kundalini class, I want to go out and play." Barbara also brings to her teaching alignment principles learned during a longtime and continuing practice of hatha yoga. She is certified by the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI) and is a member of 3HO International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association.
