Meet some of the extraordinary people from our growing list of Luminaries your contribution will touch:

Banesa Tseki is one of the founders of Kundalini Africa Rising, which promotes social justice as a spiritual practice. Every week, she teaches children at Ekhaya park in Hillbrow, one of the most dangerous inner city areas in South Africa made famous for its gun raids, drugs and criminals. She also teaches with Street Light Kids, which aims to give underprivileged children the same right to access world class education. She helped launch Open Kundalini Yoga classes in areas such as the inner cities in Soweto and Alex townships, Lesotho and Mozambique to enable specific communities of color to gain access to Kundalini Yoga and its benefits.

Djuma Manirakiza is an exile from Burundi now living in a refugee camp in Kigali who teaches Kundalini Yoga to refugee children in camps in Rwanda and schools in Kenya.

Akarat Sivaphongthongchai teaches Kundalini Yoga to autistic and special needs children as well as female prisoners in Thailand. He is also a volunteer for the National KY Thailand Group and helps to organize Kundalini Yoga festivals in Thailand.

Conny Brammen (Meherpal Kaur) founded a volunteer association that brings Kundalini Yoga into state institutions in Germany, sharing Kundalini Yoga with people in distress such as those with eating disorders, psychiatric disorders, people in prison, and recovering sex-workers.

Jeffrey Donald (Dharm Atma Singh) has trained 207 teachers in Virginia in Kundalini Yoga and meditation for use in classrooms. This summer he will train an additional 200 teachers in 35 school districts on Kundalini techniques for students.

Guru Updesh Kaur from Chile hosts a langar group that cooks and serves 900 portions of vegetarian food three times a week to the homeless and disabled. She teaches yoga and meditation as a seva to the elderly, and has adopted abandoned children.

Oinak Singh was raised in an orphanage for destitute children in Rishikesh, India. Exposed to Kundalini Yoga from yoga teachers visiting the children's home, he now pays it forward by bringing Kundalini Yoga and meditation to "ragpickers,"children in the slums who pick through trash heaps looking for salvage.

Atma Jodha Singh from Texas is a volunteer chaplain in the TX State Prison system and shares Kundalini Yoga with male prisoners. He also shares Kundalini Yoga with people recovering from strokes and brain tumors, having survived his own brain tumor a few years ago.

Shango Johnson teaches yoga to children pre-K to high school in Chicago, Illinois, where he helps kids learn to cope with their problems through meditation. He works as a male mentor coordinator with I Grow Chicago Peace House, a community gathering and healing resource space. He also patrols the Chicago area for Cease Fire, a public health anti-violence program.

Martine Brisson (Kiret Nam Kaur) is the only Kundalini Yoga teacher in Haiti. She organizes a festival that shares Kundalini Yoga in the streets and public parks of Port-au-Prince.

Zutu-ocloo Kofi keeps the teachings of Kundalini Yoga alive in Accra, Ghana. He also helps African-American youth on trips to Ghana to rediscover their African heritage and develop a daily sadhana.

Marina Maia (Sunderta Kaur) is developing a donation-built community center in an underserved area of Brazil for impoverished children and adults to learn the tools of Kundalini Yoga. She is the founder of Yoga e Negritude, which seeks to raise the profile of Black yoga students and teachers in Brazil.

Chamois Anderson is a Kundalini Yogi in Laramie, Wyoming working for Defenders of Wildlife, a non-profit that focuses on threatened and endangered species. She works to restore wild bison to tribal and public lands, and to bring back the endangered black-footed ferret by building up prairie dogs to sustain their populations on recovery sites across the Great Plains. She also works with Native American tribes all across the Great Plains on reservations.

Maria Martinez Feduchi (Sarandeep Kaur) serves the Spanish Association of Kundalini Yoga (AEKY) tirelessly, organizing up to 4 annual meetings for the community and sharing Kundalini Yoga at fairs across Spain. She is a founding member of an organization that promotes the welfare of women and children.

More Info

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of 3HO International, we are launching the 3HO LUMINARIES program.  

The 3HO Luminaries are Kundalini Yoga teachers and members of the 3HO community who are living our vision of global service with humility and grace. They spread the teachings in some of the most in-need corners of the globe, and without your support would not be able to attend our transformational summer programs.

They will be traveling to Summer Solstice 2019 from every continent to reflect the amazing world-wide Kundalini Yoga community and share their life and teaching experiences.  Your gift will help sponsor their travel and activities, so everyone can experience their gifts.  They will return home to uplift and inspire teachers and students in their yoga communities and around the world.

Sponsor a 3HO LUMINARY and bring the world of Kundalini Yoga together to celebrate 50 years of changing the world.    

We need your support.  Each LUMINARY will need approximately $2,000 in sponsorship to attend.  Help us make this happen.  The ripple effects will last a lifetime!
