Our teacher for the month of September is Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, founder of Golden Bridge Yoga.
Gurmukh first began practicing in 1970 after meeting Kundalini master Yogi Bhajan and receiving her name, which means, “one who helps people across the world ocean.” After studying with Yogi Bhajan, she started teaching, and after the birth of her daughter in 1982, Gurmukh used her knowledge of Kundalini to launch a childbirth education program called “The Khalsa Way.” Now, with her husband Gurushabd Singh Khalsa, she travels the world bringing her amazing instruction to numerous students.
In 2002, Gurmukh founded Golden Bridge Yoga in Los Angeles, and they later expanded with centers in Santa Monica and New York City. Golden Bridge Yoga promotes Gurmukh’s vision of developing a yogic community and inspiring students. They have been a valued wholesale customer of Barefoot Yoga since 2003 and offer many of our products, including yoga mats, silk eye pillows, zafus and practice rugs.
