A classically trained actress and former Ford model, Karuna’s path to self discovery began long before she ever took her first Kundalini class. While studying at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in England, she began teaching yoga professionally to actors, classmates, and private referrals. She later helped develop The Life Centre’s yoga program in London. As the actor, Anthony Hopkins, once said to her, “You have to find yourself to be yourself.”
Karuna continued to find more of herself as she studied Sikhism, Buddhism, and the Lakota Sioux healing tradition. As her exploration of spiritual practices continued to deepen, she attended a Kundalini yoga class in Los Angeles taught by Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa.
Immediately, Karuna was captivated by this amazing technology—unlike any other yoga she had experienced—in which posture, breath, mantra and meditation blend into a rich whole. Gurmukh invited Karuna to apprentice with her, and this was a great honor, as Gurmukh was personally trained by Yogi Bhajan, whose teachings are the foundation of Kundalini Yoga in the western world.
