Vedya Pritam Kaur
My Yoga/Spiritual journey begins in the latter part of the Piscean Age. I practiced Transcendental Meditation ™ by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Hatha Yoga. In 2012, I attended the Peace Weavers annual Peace Celebration at the Princeton University Chapel. I meet Mahan Rishi Singh Khalsa and Nirbhe Kaur Khalsa, from the Khalsa Healing and Arts Center in Yardley, PA, Master Kundalini Yoga teachers. This was my introduction to Kundalini Yoga. I was so impressed with their grace, energy and authenticity that I had to learn more about this ancient yoga technique. So I did, and began to notice the positive mental, emotional and physical changes that were happening to me. This cultivated into a practice that I love and wanted to share it with others.
I completed The Aquarian Teacher Program, a KRI Level 1 Certification, in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. This was a 220-hour course, a program that is based on the comprehensive science of KY. I have developed the skill to instruct students in KY Kriya’s, Pranayam, the science of breath and its use in healing the body and mind, the importance of Meditation to a yoga practice and how to use Meditation in practical ways to heal Physical and Psychological conditions as well as training on the Chakras system. The Chakras can be used as a tool for self-analysis and helps us to understand our nature, what we attract, what we repel and how energy flows or get stuck in the body. More importantly, the training was an in depth study to master myself, awaken my potential and experience the powerful transformational energy of Sadhana (spiritual practice) and White Tantic Yoga.
I bow with respect and gratitude to Mahan Rishi and Nirbhe Kaur for teaching me Kundalini Yoga. They both feel blessed to have been personally taught by Yogi Bhajan, the Master Yogi who brought this amazing science of yoga to the West and founded 3ho.org. Since the mid 70’s they have taught at Princeton, Rutgers and Riders Universities, as well as holistic conferences and retreat centers both nationally and internationally.
Gina Dinkey Reiki Healer
Moving to the area three years ago and making the break from my yoga studio, created a void. Visiting the Rail Trail is my way to get some peace and fresh air, but then I remembered a Reiki intro I went to many years ago. Being in a constant state of stress, I knew it was the right time to do something for myself, so I trained as a Reiki practitioner. This training takes sight, sound and smell to a whole new level and awakens the daily grind. I am very thankful to all that I have met in this welcoming community and want to share this healing with others.

Continually studying, I became a Reiki Master/Teacher, Certified Sound Healer and Vibrational Healer as well as a Cayce Certified Regressionist and Spiritual Life Coach.
