Sheel has advanced training in Kundalini (500+ hr) and Hatha Yoga (200 hr), and Breathwork, and is fascinated with how to apply ancient yoga teachings to today’s lifestyle, particularly to the paths of recovery and motherhood. She brings the complementary modality of plant essences into her classes and works with the highest vibrational plant essences available—from Wisdom of the Earth based in Sedona, Arizona. Sheel also works with students privately to help create relationships with certain essences to fuel their yoga/meditation/breath practices.
Her students love her approach of making these ancient teachings accessible and the experience of plant and tree allies with each practice, witnessing a new capacity for joy in their daily life almost immediately.
Teaching from a place of wanting to respect the roots of yoga in Indian culture (and protect against the rampant appropriation of Sikh culture in the kundalini world), Sheel is always on the path of decolonizing the yoga she teaches. And because all yoga comes from patriarchal roots and heavily influenced by casteism, she teaches yoga from matriarchal space emboldening her students to look at yoga teachings and lineages as working for them, helping to uncover ease and happiness in their lives, versus blindly following lineage rules and becoming a collector of yoga theories and experiences. Sheel strives to create a space that honors and welcomes BIPOC and LGQBTA+ Souls to come and practice.
Sheel (with great help from the plants and trees!) creates a practice that make us feel more centered, alive and grateful for this incarnation.
