Sukhmani has been practicing yoga for 20 years. Her passion for yoga grew exponentially when she began practicing Kundalini Yoga. Being an accomplished singer and songwriter who studied at Berklee College of Music, she was hooked by the rhythms and energy of the postures, music, and mantras used in classes. As she went deeper into the practice, she realized that Kundalini Yoga and Meditation is a transformational experience and sharing the teachings with others seemed like the natural thing to do. Sukhmani and her longtime musical partner/husband formed the mantra band, Sukha in 2011.  Sukha’s mantra rock concept album “Rise” released worldwide in 2016 and Sukha has been touring the US doing concerts and workshops.  Rise was on the Grammy® Ballot for Best New Age Album of the Year in 2016 and has received many accolades.  Sukhmani utilizes sound and the sound current by incorporating mantra and chanting meditation in her classes (often with her band, Sukha) as well as the use of instruments such as gongs and tibetan and quartz bowls to help restore the intrinsic state of balance in the body.
