S2 EP5 Gurnimit Singh | How to attune with your authentic Self through the medicine of Naad?

a Curious Yogi

“When we’re distracted and not in tune with our authentic selves we don’t hear sound and magic around us. Let’s come back home and remember there’s this beautiful side of you.” 

This weeks guest is a complete treasure who is spreading the light of oneness through the medicine of Naad or sound. It’s my delight to introduce Gurnimit Singh is a 3rd generation kirtan singer from Chandigarh India who determined to share his lineage teachings and help practitioners evolve into their authentic selves through Bhakti Yog.

Gurnimit began his intense study of tabla, vocals, harmonium and kirtan at the age of 8. Gurnimit immense talent was previously celebrated worldwide within the Sikh community before being publicly outed as queer. As a south asian LGBTQI, Gurnimit inspires others with his profound and accessible wisdom cultivated after healing his own trauma and reconciling his past of abuse. He now offers his students and community the many traditional practices that he’s not only mastered but lives daily. He’s the real deal. Gurnimits story, brilliance and joy is filled with spiritual insight that anyone on any path can learn from. A complete honor to share the space with him in this vulnerable and illuminating conversation.

We cover so much ground! From his personal story to the technicalities of Indian classical music to the vision of oneness and more…

About Bobbi

I'm Bobbi, a very curious yogi! I’m also into exploring nature all around the world, creating epic vegan feasts, and apart from being on my yoga mat, I’m happiest when I’m disco dancing my way back to the 70’s!

A Curious Yogi 

I’m really excited that you’ve made it here! So, what’s my mission? It’s to support you in uncovering your highest Self and living an expanded everyday life. It’s my mission because I spent 14 years as a lost, addicted, and depressed yogi. And, it wasn’t until I began to put tender, love and care into my daily personal practice, sadhana, that I began to unfold that state of bliss, which is Yog. 

I’m here as your guide, and your friend, to help you integrate hath yog, pranaayam, meditation & yogic wisdom into your daily life so you can blossom too. 

Hello, friends! I'm Bobbi.

And I'm a 

curious yogi.
