Sikh Kundalini Yoga Guru #11

Move over Guru Singh because there’s a big new kundalini yoga guru in town who has recently immigrated from Great Britain to Los Angeles.  Gori Sikh Guru Number Eleven is available to teach women only at his new yoga studio in West LA.  This is not your father’s meat-eating variety of Sikh who assassinated Indira Gandhi while working as her bodyguard.  Guru #11 is a vegan.  Maybe brand new vegan kundalini yoga teacher Russell Brand will be the personality to finally make kundalini really popular.  Hopefully Mr. Brand will make kundalini yoga look like the farce that it really is with his trendy tattoos of Sikh Khandas and kundalini chakras.  

Wikipedia Excerpt:  Brand has shown interest in the Hare Krishna Movement and wrote in a 2007 Guardian column: “I say Hare Krishna as often as possible, sometimes even when I’m not being filmed”.[166] Additionally, during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2010, Brand talked about his love of Transcendental Meditation (TM).[167] This love of TM was reaffirmed in a 2013 New Statesman editorial he wrote: “Through Transcendental Meditation, twice daily I feel the bliss of the divine….. I connect to a boundless consciousness that has no palpable relationship with my thoughts, fears or desires.”[168] He has also gravitated toward Christian spirituality and practice by daily reciting the Lord’s Prayer and attempting to have Christ consciousness.[169]

Lateral Career Moves

A lot of brand new gurus with similar credentials would become celebrity sobriety coaches or motivational speakers however Mr. Brand is taking kundalini yoga teacher training to become part of the cult of Bhajanism.  He even has a Sikh Khanda tattooed upon his body.

Sadhana

My personal yoga practice is better than ever.  My spine is opening up.  I don’t even know the names of some of the asanas I am practicing.  Lateral walking in the park is also doing wonders for my lower body development.  All appendages on my lower body are getting longer and thicker.  My shoe size has increased from 8 to 9.5 and my toes are thicker and stronger. 

My next practice I will add this spinal bend to my routine:
