I AM Jeanne Lurie - Amrit Nam Kaur
Amrit Nam Kaur is the spiritual name which has been given to me and signifies the Princess who tastes and enjoys and shares with others the sweet nectar of God´s true Name, and who walks with power and grace throughout her life.
"That's what you are here for. You are here to serve, here to lift, here to grace, here to give hope and action, here to give the very deep love of your soul to all those who need." ~ Yogi Bhajan
I began my yoga practice at the age of 18 initially following the teachings of Swami Vishnudevananda and Swami Sivananda. At the same age I began my meditation practice after being initiated into the discipline of Transcendental Meditation as taught by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
I began teaching hatha yoga in 1971 in the Jack La Lanne European Health Spa in San Francisco, California, combining my work teaching with my undergraduate studies at San Francisco State University. Shortly after graduation from University with a Bachelor of Arts In English Literature and a minor in dance, I began travelling throughout Europe, Asia and the Orient working as a professional dancer as well as teaching yoga and other forms of body conditioning.
Tirelessly seeking after more knowledge to share with my students and after having explored many of the different schools of yoga, I absolutely fell in love with the beauty, the power and the magnitude of Kundalini Yoga. I am eternally grateful to Yogi Bhajan and the legacy of teaching he has left for all human beings to grow into awareness.

Kundalini yoga as taught by Yogui Bhajan is known as the yoga of consciousness. “You pass through this planet Earth just to understand that you have a consciousness - that is all. Discipline is a way to consciousness and consciousness is a way to Infinity.″ © The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan, July 28, 1981
The many different components of the class including asanas, breathing pranayama, mantras, mudras and meditation all come together to create a consciouness raising experience. The fundamental objective is to awaken the power of the individual to excel—to experience their Infinity and fulfill their personal destiny.
I now wish to share this amazing technology with others and teach it with a passion. The meditations and asanas performed to the vibration of sacred chants lead the way to a highly uplifted experience and ultimately to an expanded state of consciousness.
Yoga is a discipline which must be experienced, words could never adequately portray the sensations, the benefits nor the extraordinary immediate results which can be enjoyed. There are no words to express the peace, the joy and the love which comes from yoga practice, it must be experienced.The immense beauty of yoga is that it does not end when the class is over, just the opposite occurs, the real practice begins when you walk out of the class and bring the yoga experience into your everyday life. Yoga is an experience of opening the heart and learning to live from a heart based consciousness and where the realization that we are all one begins to transform and shape your everyday reality. This reminder as expressed so beautifully by Yogi Bhajan “If you can not see God in all, you can not see God at all”, helps us all to live a little better everyday as conscious human beings.
Enjoy the power of special shabd meditations based on sacred sounds to open the heart, uplift the spirit, discipline the mind and unite one with all. Each and every person who uplifts their thoughts and words is contributing to a world based on peace and love, harmony and equality. That is my prayer.
In my insatiable quest for more information on healing techniques which I am then able to offer to my clients, I have continued my education in the field of natural and holistic health and life style.
