Sat Devbir Singh has a love for dissecting the more esoteric and abstract spiritual teachings in order to translate them into useful tools for everyday life. He feels that Yogic Science provides technology for a thriving, fulfilled life experience. His classes focus on empowerment and weave high-energy moments, deep cleansing, humor, and stillness into one colorful fabric of Yoga.
How did you find Kundalini Yoga (or how did it find you!)?
Although I always had a unique connection to Spirit, Yoga didn’t pull me in for the longest time. People told me to try yoga for years, so I dabbled here and there but was never pulled in. One night I was meditating with a little selenite crystal and I received the clearest message of my life: I was to teach Kundalini Yoga. I had never tried Kundalini Yoga, so I thought that would be a good place to start! I went to my first class and knew instantly that I had come home. I remember I was completely broke at the time and had to split the teacher training fees between two credit cards. Of course, the Yogic technology worked for me and the prosperity began to flow, as did my destiny. I couldn't believe the positive contrast that the practice created in my level of happiness, peace, fulfillment, and health. It's what keeps me going!
What is your favorite Yogi Bhajan Teaching?
One of the things I love most about this practice is the “keep up” spirit. Yogi Bhajan delivered these teachings to empower people, saying “If you feel depressed, press back!” This attitude blended with the focus on intuition and neutrality really transformed my entire life. Without neutrality, there's no way I could be doing the work that I'm doing now and I haven’t found another method that can compete with Kundalini Yoga for mastering neutrality. Most of us are not given this kind of life-enhancing wisdom in our educations and it’s truly like gold. I've always felt that it's part of my path to assist others in accessing their ultimate potential and capacity, so these teachings are in such beautiful alignment with my life purpose.
What do you love about teaching at Yoga West?
I often refer to Yoga West as “the Mother Ship” because it is such a unique energy hub, still so full of Yogi Bhajan's pure vibration. It is such a safe and sacred space with infinite potential to transform and expand. The staff really works together to keep the space sacred, and the store offers so many amazing things to compliment the practice (including the delicious complimentary teas!) I feel more like my ideal Self just walking through the doors, so it is such a privilege to teach and to be a student here.
What else do you do in your life that we might not know about?
I have always been extremely creative. I taught myself piano at a young age, played saxophone all through school. I have completed several paintings, shaded drawings, and sculptures, and I've also written music and poetry since a young age, accumulating a catalog of hundreds of poems. I dabbled in photography and recently broke my hiatus with a gallery opening featuring one of Yoga West's own! On the flip side, I began deep research on health & nutrition in middle school for science fairs and eventually became a nutritional counselor and fitness trainer. That background organically transferred into the yogic science and Spiritual psychology beautifully.
As a Dr. of Divinity, I often get asked what it is that I actually “do”. Aside from teaching Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, I perform house blessings/clearings, weddings, and Spiritual counseling. I've had the privilege of teaching retreats and workshops worldwide. I offer private sessions for Yoga, Guided Meditation, Past Life Regression, DNA activation, and my specialty: Crystal Healings/Readings. Many of my projects have been born through my connection with the Archangels and Ascended Masters. The line of “Enlightened Oils” we carry at Yoga West was channeled through St. Germaine, who guided me in blending certain essential oils with specific crystals that would heighten each other's healing properties. My Crystal Healing Academy was created under the direction of Archangel Metatron, and teaches people how to heal themselves, others, and their environments through the power of crystals.
My dog is my best friend and I love to volunteer at animal shelters and do benefit classes for animals. It's always refreshing to get dirty and allow my playful side to come out. I learn so much from animals, not to mention all the yoga postures they gave us!
