Kundalini with Sheel at Buddhi Yoga

Practice from home with Sheel from anywhere in the world at YourBuddhi (Livestream and On Demand)​

What it’s like to practice with Sheel:

Sheel created something truly beautiful at Kundalini Windansea and she is creating something truly essential with Kundalini with Sheel, bringing the ancient teachings to women with hectic, overloaded lives. Sheel brings grace, tenderness, and a little touch of California to her teachings. Kundalini can be a bit intimidating for beginners and Sheel breaks down those barriers, sharing her gift with confidence, warmth and accessibility. I have left Sheel's classes feeling lighter and brighter with a renewed connection to my body, mind and spirit.

Kundalini with Sheel is medicine for your soul. She's the 'it girl' of Kundalini. Her hip style brings ancient traditions of healing and strength to my modern day life. As a busy physician, I love the ability to have access to Sheel's amazing classes whenever I want.

Part guru, part friend, part philosopher, part muse – you will be sure to tailor your own experience at Kundalini with Sheel. I am so happy Sheel has launched online so I can now practice with her while I am on the go.

As a busy mom with an overwhelming 'to do' list at times - it is critical to take the time to calm, focus and take care of myself. It is important for me and for my family. That is why I love practicing online with Sheel—she is the best!

I began taking Kundalini class with Sheel last March and have loved what it has awakened in me - more light, openness and a sense of joy in the possibilities of my life. Over the past couple of months I tried to start a morning meditation practice which, when I did it, was fantastic, but I lacked commitment and consistency - a pattern I often struggle with. Two weeks ago we did Kirtan Kriya in class and there was something in the vibration that spoke to me. That, along with the science that it prevents Alzheimers, a disease that is prevalent in my family history, made me commit to and prioritize this practice for its mental and soulful benefits. It is so powerful! Now I wake up early every morning, make my cup of tea, tend to our pets then sit on my mat with my dog Rory next to me - he knows the routine! I anoint myself with Titipati essence, breathe deeply, tune in, then begin my warmup and morning meditation for a calm heart created for me by Sheel during our tantric numerology session and then do Kirtan Kriya - 14 days and counting!

From the first class I took with Sheel I had an instant connection to her energy. There was something so relatable and real to her on a physical level. But at the same time on a spiritual level I felt an undeniable presence of true purpose (dharma) and innate wisdom within her, which I feel effortlessly flows through her and the classes/circles/gatherings she holds. Making an ancient practice feel attainable and relatable in today's society is a true gift and I feel blessed to share the journey with her as one of my guides. I know my life has shifted into a higher vibration because of it

If you are interested in experiencing more joy and a deeper personal spiritual connection in your life, I would strongly recommend giving yourself the wonderful gift of a Tantric Numerology Experience with Sheel. What started as an exciting, spot-on, reading, turned into a magical personal adventure for me, with a lovely bonus of learning about and enjoying the extremely effective plant medicine that Sheel suggested for me, medicine I will continue to delight in for my lifetime. My Kundalini practice had been missing the right kind of focus, and Sheel created a unique daily Sadhana for me, based on my reading, my temperament, and, importantly, my schedule. I originally planned on completing 40 days, however, fell so in love with the Sadhana, I enjoyed 120 days. It is hard to express the impact of the reading and the practice on me, but suffice it to say, it has been a deeply personal and fulfilling experience, and guess what . . . just wait to see what happens in your life, and how you move through it. Amazing! Thank you Sheel, Sat Nam!

My husband John I have been looking for a mindful practice to share together and Kundalini was the answer! John has been practicing meditation for years and I’ve always struggled with making it a daily practice. After our first session with Sheel, we were hooked and plan to make it our weekly date night.

Sheel is an amazing Kundalini instructor. She makes it easy to understand and easy to follow. Kundalini should be a part of everyone’s yoga routine.

How I started my kundalini journey

I began practicing Kundalini meditation when I was pregnant with my first child.

At the time, I was also quite anxious about transitioning out of my career as an attorney and becoming a stay-at-home mom—I was terrified I was going to lose my “value” in the world.

Questions About KWS

All yoga has its origins in the work of the ancient yogis who spent their lives observing the fluctuations of energy and the effects of different activities behind closed eyes. The yogic system started out with mantra or a coded sound that created a desired effect, breath work and movement. Over time, the holistic system became diluted into different techniques and then schools (i.e. some just had mantra, some just had movement, etc.). This led to 22 schools of yoga at the time the Yoga Sutras were written by Patanjali circa 200 A.D.

All the schools of yoga have a purpose. Kundalini yoga retained all the “facets” of the original system: mantra, meditation, breath work and movement for one purpose…to ignite the Soul Body and have it rise up the spine and into our lives. The yogis call this “Jiwanmukt” (the experience of a liberated Soul while living). The system I practice is Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan—the man that first brought this practice to the West in 1969.

These experiences are based on my weekly classes I teach in La Jolla to mostly women, 30-60 years old, with a lot of stress and a lot of love and beauty in their lives as well. I know how hard it is to make time to meditate and exercise, so I maximize the experience to release stress, connect with Spirit, and increase capacity for joy. I also like to use the classes to (at least in a subtle way) rhythmically release self-destructive habits.

The classes begin with a tune in mantra that connects us with the Yogi Scientists that figured out how these simple moves with breath raised the consciousness to connect with the Universal Pulse. Then we warm up and breathe and move into a kriya or a particular recipe of movement and breath and meditation for a desired result that I go into further detail on in the accompanying blog post. We end with an optional gong bath. If you are busy and can’t stay for the gong bath, please lie down for at least 90 seconds so that the benefits of the practice can be delivered throughout your physical body, energy bodies, and all nine feet of your electromagnetic field.

Regularity creates rhythm and rhythm creates change. If you can commit to doing at least one experience a week, and even just reading about the second one (or having it play in the background counts too!), you will start to feel more joy and authenticity flow. Kundalini is really a vibrational upgrade that brings you in sync with the TRUE YOU and with the Universe. So by practicing 1-2 times a week you’ll start to find that the breath or something in the experience will organically flower during the week between sessions, and all of the sudden a mantra from class will pop in your head. These spontaneous moments are the real goal and are indicative of new brain patterns forming, and new ways to connect with your Destiny happening too! You are also free to do the experiences multiple times…think of it as an “as needed” practice.
