Hi, I’m Taranjeet Kaur (aka Taran), I’m so excited your here
My yoga journey started aged 12 when I started learning Hatha Yoga from a book I picked up in the shop with my Mum. No one around me talked about Yoga or did it, it was my guide book.
I practiced Bikram Hot Yoga till my early twenties. It was then that I rediscovered Art through Journaling, writing free style and painting with Acrylics. I love every minute of my self – taught journey. Looking back it became a safe haven in a turbulent time and it became my only source of expression. I later did a drawing course that taught me many skills though pushed my painting aside.
In my late twenties I was given a book on Kundalini Yoga and the heating system packed up for weeks at the same time (no more hot Yoga).
I started daily Sadhanas and it transformed my life.
I went from choosing boozy nights to dedicating myself to morning meditations. I chose to ditch excessive make up and go minimal. I became vegetarian too.
I saw the bigger picture of where my life was and where it could be taking me and I pivoted myself a new path. I left an emotionally unhealthy relationship with only my own courage and the things that could fit in my car. I left my creative space and found it hard to create anything, though did anyway in a tiny room.
I started over.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”.
I chose the Sikh way of life in 2018 (I’ve had two names previous one from birth the other from the Yogis).
I taught classes at home, at events and then in studios when I moved to London to be with my husband.
Out of the studio, off the mat, I am a writer, a support worker, a creator of courses and a mum of one.
In 2019 I started Counselling and therapy as a career path.
I’m learning to surrender to how life is unfolding while living truly too.
"The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are".
