Deepen Into Your Practice.

Heal Thyself. Teach Women.

Embody your grace & fierceness and help other women do the same. 


A Letter From Sukhdev 

Dear Radiant Woman,

As Yogi Bhajan foresaw, the gifts of the sacred feminine are now needed like never before - and it’s our responsibility to step into them with fierce love.

The world is beginning to witness the birth of a new era that finally honors the problems with our current social structures, in which a woman’s intuitive power has been shut up and shut down out of fear of its hugeness.

Yogi Bhajan knew that something had to shift. He was a visionary with a mission - a mission to use Kundalini Yoga to uplift the nobility, radiance, and confidence of women, a mission to annihilate a woman’s insecurity and move her into a life of service, prosperity and creative action.

In this way, we may rise up and meet the new era, equipped to change the world - to let our light blast out the shadows of the past.

And you are ready. You are ready to shine even brighter.

You are ready to gift the divine energy of Kundalini Yoga to your sacred sisters.

You are ready to share your heart-level understanding of what it means to be a woman - to illuminate the path of embracing the infinite wisdom and creative power that we inherently possess in this female incarnation. To help others move forward with the courage, compassion, and grace needed in this age of female re-empowerment.

Women need to be together in these times of great change. Together, we thrive. Together, we can leave the past behind and move with presence into a time that calls upon our divine feminine light to create an enlightened future for all beings on Mother Earth.

With deep love and gratitude,

Sukhdev Jackson

"In order to teach masterfully, to any group of people, you must have had the experiences of the group, or else your simply an instructor reciting instructions.

Sukhdev Kaur is a masterful teacher who has had the experiences of all sides of the Divine sisterhood throughout her life. It is her mastery of Kundalini yoga, meditation, music, partnership and motherhood that have given her the tools to express this mastery through her teachings and classes.

There is no limit to our encouragement for any woman who is considering studying with Sukhdev Kaur. It is a truly blessed opportunity."

Always with Sacred Prayer & Deep Gratitude, Guru Singh & Guruperkarma Kaur

Through the gift and blessing of discovering the tools of Kundalini Yoga and meditation for Women, I created a balanced life of harmony, peace and service.

"Sukhdev is a woman of great grace and power. 

As a  teacher she brings wisdom and compassion, as a musician she elevates and transforms. 

To work with Sukhdev has the power to transform your life.”

Carrie Ann Moss - Mother, Actress, Teacher


"I have known Sukhdev for over 4 years now. We both have young daughters who have a sweet friendship and it tickles my heart to know our girls are connected.

167674_10150135912451119_1437855_n.png

In working with and personal conversations with Sukhdev, I've been moved out of my mental comfort zone in both a gentle and powerful way.

Her work with and for women is unique. 

Lisa Alex - Mother


"I am a singer/songwriter living in Los Angeles, and battling the daily grind of a very difficult career that can often create a beautiful and blissful environment, but also an extremely toxic one. I've always looked to holistic modalities to help me navigate and stay connected to my Self, to help me create from truth and authenticity despite the pressure to follow trends, and not be afraid to truly be myself. 

Alisha Zelkin.png

While many of those have been helpful, none have given me the experience of Self and Soul that Shakti School has.

I was introduced to Sukhdev at my bachelorette party where she led a two hour Kundalini class, and there was this incredible feeling of ease, flow, and self love that I experienced. It was a feeling I always longed for, and worked so hard to achieve, but could never really get there. After her class I knew I had to sign up for Shakti School, and I'm so glad I did.

Sukhdev's 40 day program allowed me to feel my soul again, and again, and again. And each time I had that experience, it would start to seep into my thoughts and my actions. I would get into the studio to write and record, and there was this level of creative flow and freedom that was coming out of me in ways I had never experienced before.

I found my heart softening and opening to difficult situations, which gave me the space to experience a different outcome. I started to get in tune with my own energies, and listen to my intuition to figure out how to shift it in the moment.

I am so grateful for Sukhdev and Shakti School, because it has unlocked and opened the gates of the inmate wisdom and self love we are born with, and that, in and of itself is priceless."

Alisha Z. -  Singer/Songwriter 


"Working with Sukhdev for the past 4 years has been an amazing journey. Her authentic approach to teaching Kundalini Yoga is uplifting and encouraging; shedding light upon the shadow.

Through her Women workshops I have had amazing breakthroughs within myself. Her humble approach and her strong presence captivates, inspires, & provokes one into their own journey of self discovery and growth.

Not only one of the best Kundalini Yoga teachers I have come across, but along with her husband Akah, she brings her gift through her devotional music in Aykanna" 

Angela Lindvall - Mother, Super-Model, Activist, Kundalini Yoga Teacher


 

The Fierce Feminine is my third SHAKTI SCHOOL "online" and fourth Shakti School journey with Sukhdev including the Embodied Woman in Costa Rica within one year!  It is like a breath of fresh air each time, I feel truly changed on a whole new level.

I knew the first time I tuned in to Shakti School that this was a powerful teaching but to have grown and changed and healed as a result, is more than I could have imagined.

I started Shakti School from a place of insecurity, some shame and trepidation (in terms of finances, relationships, life purpose, aging, blah, blah;-).

Each day I would think this is going to be tough, yet I was receiving a gift, and then the next day would be a greater gift and sense of ease,  and some days were tougher workouts but I felt better, meeting the daily challenges were insightful, I was facing my fears!

I want to thank Sukhdev and sisterhood at Shakti School so much for the gifts of daily transformative practice, through Kundalini Yoga sadhana, meditations, music, dancing, and especially for the "sacred space" held to allow personal experiences to be shared, sung out loud, with respect, forgiveness,  self-empowerment, and group uplifting. I felt connected to this sweet source of love, knowing no matter where we are individually, that our sisterhood is a source of security, of inner wisdom, strength and compassion for all beings.

If you are coming from Europe, you may need to fly into San Jose and then get a small plane to Nosara. That would be the easiest.
