Crystelle Brown (Sarab Sital Kaur)

Deeply dedicated to serving humanity as we experience these
intensely changing times, Crystelle feels that Kundalini Yoga
is one of the best tools to help support us in gracefully
navigating our lives. Having studied various forms of healing
for over 12 years. She has found nothing to be powerfully
transformational, efficient, self-empowering and self-initiating
as Kundalini Yoga.

“The first Kundalini Yoga class I participated in left me feeling like I
had found my true calling. With Kundalini Yoga, you are taking full
responsibility for yourself, for your healing. You can ‘be healed’ by
someone else, or you can take an active role in initiating
your own inner healing yourself (true empowerment)- The practice
of Kundalini Yoga does not discriminate,it meets you right where you are,
and it gives everyone the opportunity to step into their true power. One of
the greatest things about it is that you are healing yourself while
simultaneously doing your part to heal the entire planet...”

"A committed practice brings true, deep and lasting healing!"

Crystelle guides and holds the space for you to begin to tap
into the dormant creative life energy (the Kundalini energy)
that lies within each of us; that energy that allows you to live 
your best life ; your highest truth and potential, your
‘Sat Nam.’

Crystelle also enjoys making handmade malas and mala
inspiredjewelry, you can check them out in the studio or on

Stephanie Mouton (Siri Amir Kaur)

Stephanie became interested in yoga in 1968 following a hip
injury from a horseback riding accident. She began after
purchasing a three-dollar beginner yoga book and practicing
in her living room at night after her family of six were sound
asleep. It really helped her hip immensely, and she became a
believer in yoga.
Following Stephanie's medical residency in anesthesiology, she
began sessions in Hatha yoga at home with a private
instructor. Yoga helped to make her job stress more tolerable
and after the birth of her son 13 years ago, she began a
regular practice of ashtanga yoga 4-5 times a week. Hot yoga
was also an occasional alternative, but the icing on the cake
for Stephanie in 2006.
'Kundalini yoga is so powerful in all its technology of
breathwork, movement, sound and meditation. It is almost
inexplicable to convey the effect that it has on a person.
Kundalini must be experienced to know one's soul. It is
a blessing to receive the vibrations that arise in the practice.
I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn
from those who knew Yogi Bhajan. The world needs Kundalini
yoga. My gratitude to all who practice it. It is a service for all.

Mari Dew

A veteran of the music industry, Mari Dew began practicing yoga in
1998 in LA.  Given a job that involved steady travel, the flexibility
of yoga and the ability to take it on the road made it ideal.  Yoga
became a calming escape from the stress of the business.

Mari has explored many types of yoga, from Hatha to Ashtanga to
Iyengar to Bikram to Vinyasa flow, but is was the discovery of the
DVD Kundalini Yoga with Gurmukh in 2001 that cemented her
connection to yoga.  She elaborates, "I was intrigued by the deep
connection to the breath, the prana and different techniques for
breathing, and the idea of coordinating breath with movement.  I
also loved the idea of turning the focus within to the third
eye point in order to increase awareness.  I was hooked.

Her career has taken her around the continent over the last couple
decades, from Dallas to LA to Atlanta to Toronto to Traverse City,
Michigan, but Mari always had a special place in her heart for
Nashville, where she spent her rookie year as a record label rep
in 1994 and bought her first house.  When the opportunity to
take her 200-hour YogaWorks teacher training came up, Mari
packed up and moved back to Nashville and never looked back.

Mari received her teaching certification in the Summer of 2013
and began teaching some traditional yoga classes, but her heart
kept coming back to the Kundalini-inspired Rock My Yoga routine
she had developed over her years on the road.  She presented the
sequence to her teacher and mentor, Crystelle Brown at Kundalini
Rising Yoga, who graciously offered to let her teach it as a new
class at the studio.  Rock My Yoga classes officially began in
January 2014.

Rock My Yoga, like Mari, is still a work in progress that develops
with each week's class.  It is a a high energy sequence, inspired by
Kundalini Yoga and set to a soundtrack that rocks.  Breath is
coordinated with movement and third eye focus to create a
moving meditation, a graceful expression that fuses mind, body
and spirit.  Once the routine is familiar, the idea is to LET GO and
let the music absorb you.

"The goal of Rock My Yoga is to awaken the inner rock god
or rock goddess within each student and empower him/her
to go out and conquer any obstacles…mental or physical,
says Mari, "and  I hope my students will take away a sense
of inner peace, strength and confidence from the class.

Teresa Raduazzo (Devinderjit)

I began my practice in 1998 at the Baba Siri Chand Ashram in Altamonte Springs, FL. I took teacher training there in 2002 because I wanted to deepen my practice and learn more about this yoga I loved. I have continued to dig further with Level 2 courses and many seminars along the way. Kundalini yoga helps me find my peace, and I like helping others find theirs. I like that each class—whether I teach it or take it—is an opportunity to learn about myself, about others, and about the connection between us.
