In 1976, they established the first German Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training program and German Kundalini Yoga Teacher Association.

Her wit and wisdom touch the hearts of all. She has the sensitive art of guiding an individual through the process of awakening his/her inner grace, strength and potential; the subtle skill which she learned under the direct guidance of Yogi Bhajan for over 30 years.
