I’m Darshan Atma Kaur and I teach Kundalini Yoga. My journey into yoga began as Dana Franks and in my ‘other life’ that is how you will know me. I’m an holistic therapist, Reiki Master, Aikido Sensei.
I’m mother to Joshua who is all grown up now, a successful hairdresser living in the fast lane in London. I live my life now with my love Mark and Mia my dachshund who rules the house.
After 25 years in martial arts studying aikido to godan (5th dan) and iaido to sandan (3rd dan), I’m fascinated with the growth that comes from personal development and when I came across the kundalini yoga teachings, I felt profoundly moved. After one lesson I was ‘in’. Totally hooked and excited to have found a practise of such accelerated expansion, I pursued the teachings with enthusiasm and within a short time (one year) became a teacher. I love helping and serving people to reach their full potential, that is my purpose and my mission and I’m finding more ways of being able to do that.
I love nature and living by the sea. That is why I find myself here in North Devon, its beautiful coastline is a continual inspiration to me.
I am eternally grateful to my teachers in all their guises, who may or may not be aware of their role in shaping my life. It is a privilege for me to deliver these teachings to you, through the golden chain of Kundalini yoga.
I’m 56 now and feel I’ve just scratched the surface and there is so much more to learn. I am a student and a teacher.
