Gurujagat Kaur about herself: “Yoga has been an essential resource in my life since my encounter with KY ashram. Born in Israel, I first came across Kundalini Yoga in 1975 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where I shared the yogic lifestyle in the first European Mother-Ashram for eleven years, studying and practicing the vast teachings for women and mothers.
Giving birth to four children has enabled me to put into practice the ancient yet so modern Yogic Maternity tradition. My life is devoted to accompanying women, couples and families on this beautiful path of becoming parents. Further professional trainings in Human Relations, NLP, Non-Violent Communication, Rebirthing, Systemic constellation, and Systemic Family therapy enhance my yogic background as a holistic trainer and therapist. Today, I am grateful to share this treasure of knowledge and experiences with you, so you may enjoy it and pass it on to other women.”

Co-founder of Yoganet. Teacher of Kundalini Yoga specialized in Yoga for Conscious Pregnancy and Yoga-Doula.
Kundalini Yoga teacher since 2008, I recieved the Yoga-Doula teachings from Gurujagat Kaur in 2012. Since then I have been teaching regular Prenatal Yoga, Mom and Baby Yoga classes and supporting women during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
Even though I am not a mother, I feel the loving, caring and serving energy of the mother flowing through me and I share it on my classes, on the trainings and serving all the mothers that reach me.
I love participating on the Yoga-Doula trainings as an organizer and as a teacher because it allows me to keep learning and growing. It is also wonderful to be a witness of the amazing transformation of the students during the training as well as the way this beautiful teachings reach the heart of every student, allowing them to show how beautiful, strong, wise and empowered they are and how can they bring a little more of light to the planet through their job as Yoga-Doulas.
Born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on the 8th of November 1979.
I grew up between Amsterdam, the Alps in the South of France and India. Amsterdam has been a constant in my life and I currently reside here.
My studies in Cultural Anthropology and my love of travel brought me to Mexico where I met the love of my life in 2001.
As I come from a multicultural background, I grew up speaking English (my father is Canadian), Dutch, French and understanding a little Hebrew. As a young adult I also learnt how to speak Spanish (fluently) and German (quite well).
I have three children – the lights of my life and my greatest teachers! Two boys (2006 and 2011) and a girl (2015). They are also trilingual – English, Spanish and Dutch.
In 2008 I embarked on my journey to become a doula with the Opleiding tot Doula in Utrecht.
I have had the pleasure of deepening my doula skills inspiring women such as: Midwife, JJ Doula Training, TCM practitioner Jacky Bloemraad- de Boer, Ina-May Gaskin (Pioneer midwife and author), Debra Pascali-Bonaro (Doula trainer, Film-maker Orgasmic Birth) and Barbara Harper (Water Birth International).
In 2011 I had the honour of following the Yoga-Doula training with my wise mother Gurujagat Kaur Ronen and certified as a Kundalini Yoga Pregnancy and Post-Partum teacher.
In 2012 I found my joy with Dancing for Birth from founder Stephanie Larson and became a Certified Instructor. In 2013 I became a trainer able to teach the benefits and joy of dance to others wishing to integrate these beautiful tools into their work.
In 2016, I am crystalizing all this wisdom and passion for movement, dance, voice and song into a new inspiring training. I hope to inspire others to bring these elements into their work with pregnancy and birth and to spread the joy!
