I was very happy when Elysha asked me if I’d be interested in answering some questions on Kundalini Yoga for her blog at at Mind Body Soul Stylist. Upon completing my yoga teacher training program back in May, I entered a major blogging slump…so it was wonderful to have the opportunity to discuss my love for these sacred yogic teachings!

It’s been said that 2016 is the year of purification, and I am really feeling this. I’ve found it difficult to write about all that’s happening within (and without) – so much intensity! I have many things I’d like to share, but until the words flow again, here’s our interview. Thank you, Elysha!


And Happy Canada Day, too. ❤ I’m grateful that this beautiful country accepted my parents, and many other Muslims, as refugees back in the 70s. Time will tell how humans choose to live out the drama unfolding on the world stage. I’m constantly reminding myself of the fourth sutra of the Aquarian Age: Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.

Sat Nam. Truth is my identity.

  1. Aleya, thank you for articulating (so beautifully) your insights and knowledge on this amazing practice. I am grateful for your contribution that helps to shine the light on these sacred teachings. Sat nam xoxo


    • Sat Nam Elysha, and thank you! So wonderful to share and collaborate with you. Looking forward to a Kundalini class with you in NYC, one of my most favourite places ever 😉 XO


  2. How lovely – two of my favourite bloggers together ❤️ I will pop over now and check it out. 2016 has been so intense, but internally so. I didn’t blog for five months – I just couldn’t seem to process my thoughts in words (very odd for me!). Still, I’m back with lots to say now, so hopefully you will find the words as well xo

    • Sweet! ❤ Yes that's exactly what I'm experiencing, hard to process my thoughts as there's just so much. Glad you are back and I’m looking forward to reading your words. xo


  3. Thank you for sharing. This is very interesting. I don’t know much about yoga. I always thought it is like more or less difficult postures and breathing. But this sounds different and powerful.
    I haven’t had any powerful Kundalini experience yet. If I ever want to get in touch with that, I will consider now that Kundalini yoga is a safe way to start that.
    It is great that you have completed the training and are sharing here.

    • Thank you, Karin. I’ve found Kundalini to be the most powerful yoga for me, but the wonderful thing about so many styles of yoga is that there is something for everyone, if they’re drawn to explore. I hope you are enjoying your summer so far! Aleya
