Madalena believes that Yoga is more than something that you do, but something that you live by. Her inquisitive personality shows up in her classes where she aims to provide an experience that will last longer than the class itself, often establishing the link between the yogic practice and life challenges.
Her Spiritual Name is Sukh Gian Kaur, which means the one who lives peacefully, serving others with the knowledge and wisdom of the Infinite.
Therefore, she is passionate about sharing the Teachings of Yogi Bhajan and promote awareness, reflection and self-discovery through the dynamic pranayamas, kriyas and meditations of KY.
Besides teaching Kundalini Yoga, she has been teaching other types of yoga (Vinyasa, Therapeutic, Yin, and Kids’ Yoga) since 2014, in Abu Dhabi.
In 2015, Madalena received her professional Certification as a Co-Active Coach, by CTI, working as a pro-bono Life Coach for several NGOs globally.
She is certified by KRI in Level 1 Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan), feeling quite honoured to have studied it in her home country, Portugal, with Shiv Charan Singh and Satya Kaur.
Recently, she deepened her studies in Yin Yoga with Sarah Powers, attending her Insight Yoga Primary Series, Level 1 in Bali. She is also committed to further her Kundalini Yoga knowledge and practice, and is currently pursuing the Level 2 Modules certification with Shiv Charan Singh (International Karam Kriya School) in different parts of the world. ⠀
