About The Teacher
Namaste! My name is Sonia Kaur. I was born into an Indian family in which Ayurveda and Yoga were more than a practice but a lifestyle. From infancy I was nurtured by my mom's shabads and raised with meditation and bhakti yoga. The authentic ancient traditions that my parents passed on to me naturally sparked an interest in expanding my knowledge of Ayurveda and Yoga. My visits to India expanded my world view and also my thirst to increase my awareness of Yoga as a lifestyle (an eight fold path) beyond the asanas.
My experiences include training in many paths yoga such as Pranayama, Hatha Yoga, and Meditation, and learning from organizations such as Ananda Marga and Art of Living, and from other organizations founded by Baba Ramdev, and Shri Mataji. I have founded and opened Pura Veda Gurukul in San Juanillo, Costa Rica, walking distance from the beach, to provide the presence of the authentic teachings of Yoga, Ayurveda, Mindfulness and Archery (Dhanurveda). My life in the west has taught me a great deal about the challenges faced when applying eastern philosophy in the west. Modern science is now realizing that the ancient wisdom the rishis have passed down is actually a science that leads to overall physical, emotional and spiritual well being. I am honored and happy to provide my understandings of this ancient science and contextualize it to practically fit the demands of today's society.
