KRISHNA KAUR’S VISIT TO WASHINGTON DC AREA
In January of 2018 Krishna Kaur paid a visit to DC area Maryland schools to see for herself the progress made in incorporating school-based yogic technologies for social/emotional wellness. The excitement generated by her visit from students and staff was truly a blessing to see!
Krishna graciously led the class in “Kriya for Elevation” and a powerful guided affirmation/meditation. Many students and staff were deeply moved and still speak of it to this day.”
