Gurujagat kaur is the founder of the International Yoga Doula.eu School and senior trainer, and co-founder of the Postnatal Support Network.com and a senior trainer.
She is a Kundalini yoga teacher Trainer, Lead Trainer L1, member of KRI (Kundalini research Institute)
Born in Israel, she was in her early twenties when she came across the kundalini yoga mother ashram in Amsterdam, Holland in 1975. Back then, the KY ashram in Amsterdam was the first and only KYoga Ashram in Europe. Intense program of studying, practicing and serving there during 11 years gave her a profound life experience. This is where she began working as a doula back in the ’80..
Indeed, since early adolescence, witnessing the amazing miracle of life, GJK felt a call of devotion to serve women and partners during their process of becoming parents. Mother of four, and seven times grandmother, gurujagat loves sharing her treasure of experiences with you.
Alongside yoga, Gurujagat is a Couple & Family counselor; she specialized in Human Relationships, Conscious Parenting, Rebirthing, NLP, Systemic Family therapy and family constellation.
Presently residing in France, her extensive traveling and a multi-cultural journey grants her with a cosmopolitan vision and a fine-tune intuition.
In 2007, GJK founds the Yoga Doula School. This unique training offers all women a process of personal transformation to (re)connect with her feminine wisdom & motherhood potential. It is since also open for men.
Professionally, the training features a pioneering program open for all women (and men) who feel the call to become a YOGA-DOULA: a relatively new social/educative position, responding to growing needs of non-medical presence & support of futures mothers, partners and new parents.
The YOGA-DOULA offers a rainbow of possible support, ranging from pre & post yoga classes to emotional, relationship and practical companionship during pregnancy, birth, 6 postpartum weeks and postnatal yoga..
The particularity of this school is the Global resources to maternity and the “Global Tool Box”, based on yoga, applied yogic lifestyle practical wisdom, and the “active birth” approach.
We believe in the innate capacity of each healthy woman to give birth in a physiological way.
We promote changing the paradigm of fear & pain of birthing into an empowering & active experience.
The Yoga Doula training gives you know-how to accompany the mother in her journey, through pré conception, conscious pregnancy, empowering birth, to “Mothering the Mother” care during the first 40 postpartum days of Rest & Bonding, and beyond…into the first year of postnatal mama-baby yoga and support.
The YOGA-DOULA school bridges East & West cultures, combining ancient knowledge & modern research. The school program is inclusive of work of French obstetric Dr Michel Odent, American midwife Ina-May Gaskin, Naoli Vinaver, and many others contemporain professional & maternity health care providers.
In 2020 we adapted our training to the world wide transformations. Our trainings go online, supported by our long times team of teachers and growing trainers-in-training. The ONLINE shift turns to be a wonderful way to connect, learn and grow together – always in service of moms, babies and families wellbeing.
The Yoga Doula education is complementary to professional healthcare for mother and baby and doesn’t replace medical follow up and care.
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!

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.
