About the Teachers
Sat Siri is a trailblazing, next generation, Kundalini Yoga teacher and trainer. She travels the world teaching Kundalini Yoga in places like Bali, Maui, Mexico and India. She has been practicing Yoga and Meditation for over twenty years and teaching Kundalini Yoga for fifteen. She practiced Iyengar Yoga, Vipassna Meditation, and many other modalities before finding Kundalini Yoga.
She trained under the guidance of Yogi Bhajan in 2003. “Training with Yogi Bhajan was both magical and terrifying. He reminded us of our greatness, and how important it was to uplift people. To stay humble was big, he said: “how far you bow is far you’ll rise.”
Gurunam Singh is a poet, mantra artist, and workshop facilitator. He has been teaching and sharing Naad Yoga (The Yoga of Sound) for 6 years, and practicing for 22. Gurunam lived at the Espanola Ashram in Espanola, NM and studied with Yogi Bhajan for a number of years. He tours both nationally and internationally, leading Kirtans and Yatras in India every year. He has several CD’s, some of which can be found on the Spirit Voyage label. He has studied with some great ragis such as Bhai Avtar Singh and Ustaad Narinder Singh Ji, both from India, and Dya Singh from Australia. His focus and personal intent is to open to grace and to share with others in opening to that sacred space.

Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):
The Mexican Riviera is flush with these beautiful underground pools and a trip here isn’t complete without a dip in these refreshing waters. There are multiple cenotes to visit that are much less crowded than those in the Tulum area and only about 30min away by car. Find tranquility below ground or liven you experience with a cenote/zip line combination. Both options are available and booking at least a day in advance is recommended.
Snorkeling & Snuba
The biodiversity on the protect reef in the Mexican Riviera is stunning. Take off for an afternoon when the sun lights up the corals, tropical fish and sponges and search for turtles or reef sharks. Snorkelers can float above it all while scuba divers (no certification needed) can swim down into the tropical traffic. Either option will highlight why this area is protected and turned into a National Marine Park. Yogis can walk to the beach and take a 5 minute stroll to reach the operator. This natural oasis is literally steps from our retreat center.
If you’re a diver there’s twice the opportunity here, you can dive in the coral reefs or, for something a little different, take a cavern or cenote dive. Seasonally the more adventurous (crazy?) yogis can also try a bull shark dive…eek! Tons of diving options await the intrepid.
Akumal Sea Turtle Snorkel
The warm Caribbean waters off of the Mexican Riviera boast sea turtle populations year-round. You can outfit with a dive shop to snorkel with these lovelies or head out with your own gear and see if you get lucky.
The Mayan ruins at Coba is one of the few sites in the Yucatan that is still relatively unrestored. Many of these ancient buildings are the same as when they were rediscovered in 1890. The beautiful location is less hectic and touristy than other Mayan sites and is certainly worth the day trip.
Playa Del Carmen Take a shopping trip, have a great meal, or just enjoy people watching on a trip to Playa del Carmen. This is a fun tourist spot where you can shop for anything from cheap souvenirs to boutique items.
