Siri Amrita was born in Trinidad, in the West Indies. She has been a seeker as long as she can recall and investigated several different religious and spiritual paths/types of yoga, before finding her way “home” to Kundalini Yoga. Even as a beginning student, Yogi Bhajan told her that she had a destiny to teach. She has obeyed his call formally and successfully completed the 200 hour Level I Kundalini Yoga Teacher’s Training certification program (Jan-Nov 2012). She loves Kundalini Yoga for its basis in personal experience rather than abstract belief, for its multiplicity of health benefits and for its ability to heal on all levels when practiced consistently. In her “day job”, Siri Amrita is also known as Dr. Purnima Shahani and is a Prosthodontist (Advanced Dentist), in private solo practice in Harrisonburg.
