I am Mukhande Kaur Trittner and was born on March 17, 1965. I am a proud mother of two now-adult sons and happily married.
Yoga came very early into my life – at the end of high school – and it has accompanied me ever since.
In 2000, I started a new job as an SAP consultant that did not allow me to work in my home town but involved travelling. This caused me to look for a new yoga class with every change of location.
In 2006, I was in this situation again and there was yoga class that was held just close to where I lived. This was, however, a Kundalini Yoga class – I had previously only practiced Hatha Yoga – and I went there with very mixed feelings. Kundalini Yoga turned out to be so much different from Hatha Yoga.
Against expectations, time flew – and I was immediately taken by Kundalini Yoga. Especially impressive was the fact that after only a few minutes, the chanting of mantras while moving the body put a smile on my face. It is still like that today. I just love chanting mantras during class, not only with meditations but also when doing a sequence of poses. It is such an effective tool for me that helps me to let go of everyday life and to completely connect with my inner self.
Mantras led me to a more general interest in sound and here I was impressed, too, by how quickly relaxation emerges and blockages can be released when the vibrations of the body are activated by striking the singing bowls. During my training course in sound massage and Nada Yoga therapy, I learned many new ways to combine yoga and sound.
It brings me a lot of joy to give many people an understanding of these things in my capacity as a Kundalini Yoga teacher so they can have their very own personal experiences.
