Groundbreaking author, teacher, and teacher of teachers, Guru Rattana has followed a committed spiritual path since the age of 25 when she started studying Hatha Yoga. In 1977, she met and began training in Kundalini Yoga with Yogi Bhajan and was one of the first KRI Certified Teachers. In the early 80s, Yogi Bhajan told her that she would be the teacher who brought the most students to Kundalini Yoga.
She is author of four of the original (now revised and updated) and still best-selling Kundalini Yoga and Meditation manuals, based on Yogi Bhajan’s early classes. In her 11 books, she demystifies spiritual concepts and adds subtle feminine sensitivity to yoga traditions previously created by men for men. Each of her books contributes to elucidating the Inner Art of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
She is an astrologer and writes a monthly Guru Rattana Blog — featuring astrology, Kundalini Yoga, and spiritual awakening. She has filmed over 100 classes in her profound and captivating teaching style -- available on Guru Rattana Online streaming video service at https://www.yogatech.com/grol.
Her annual international teaching tours have taken her to 19 countries in Eastern and Western Europe, where she teaches Inner Awareness Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Courses (registered with Yoga Alliance) and The Gift of Womanhood courses featuring her book with that title. She is lead trainer and co-creator of K.R.I.Y.A. (Kundalini Rising International Yoga Academy).
Following receipt of her M.A. from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Guru Rattana earned a doctorate in political science from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and went on to pursue an academic career, teaching at Dartmouth College, MIT, New Hampshire College, US International University (San Diego), and Stanford University, and the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology (Palo Alto). Her spiritual path has inspired her to write and teach about awakened heart consciousness to create the foundation for real political, social, and personal transformation.
Guru Rattana lives in Coronado (San Diego), California.
