      The retreat was a great boost and just what I needed in order to meet autumn with lots of energy! The place itself is beautifully situated in a calm area where you can go for nice walks during breaks. The classes where very well organised by Japjeet - probably one of the best yoga teachers I have ever encountered (and I've had a few!), as well as were challenging and informative. I have learned a lot, met really nice people, and eaten lots of delicious vegan food thanks to the great cooking by Ingrid and Mathilda. This retreat exceeded my expectations and I would recommend to anybody looking for some time out from life's daily routine and stress.

      I went on this retreat in August 2016. The location had a pleasant ambiance because of the beautiful garden and surroundings. I learned a lot about Kundalini yoga and the Kundalini lifestyle. The program is focused on transformation and you could really see this happening in the group. The food was delicious! Accommodation was basic.

      Again thank you for the very intense and lovely week in Pellenberg. I came home feeling wonderful. Like a weight had been lifted off me. I have been able to put certain things into perspective, give them their place, and I have been able to bring closure to certain things from my past. Friends also notice that something about me has changed. I was told quite a few times last week that I’m looking radiant. I have already advised several of my women friends to take part in this women’s week. Hopefully many more women get the opportunity to take part in this retreat in future years.

      In the women’s retreat you learn countless important and essential things as a woman. The knowledge you gain eventually becomes so self-evident that I’m surprised these insights are not part of the standard education or official course materials in our schools. You’ll e.g. learn that women have moon points that determine and influence their mood, and how Kundalini Yoga offers several exercises and meditations so that a woman can stay strong and gracious amongst these moon point changes. You’ll also learn a lot about how differently men think and reason compared to us women, and how these differences manifest in our everyday lives.

      During the retreat all women are seated in a circle which offers a unique experience. It enhances the female energy and you feel much more deeply that you belong in a group, that you have the right to be, to be seen, and to be understood. This sense of belonging and the freedom to share one’s story with others all takes place in an environment without any prejudices.

      I was so impressed that I immediately wanted to share everything I learned with all the women in my surroundings (my mother, friends, ..). I can only recommend this retreat to every woman.

      "Women's Retreat: Excel and Celebrate" sounded like a mystical journey to me since the first time I heard about it… I had an idea of what to expect because I am quite known with the formula of kundalini yoga workshops and women workshops but in no way was I prepared for the profoundness of what we experienced during this week!

      What amazes me most is the depth of connection of women who gather, even if they don’t know each other, they See and Hear each other… Everyone has their own insecurities, issues, deep secrets, vibrant unique personality and despite all this, it so well matches and blends in one radiant group space… A space where everything is allowed to be shared, a space where you feel held, whether you are just starting out in yoga, life, your path, or whether you are already quite aware of who you are and really want to dive in and go deep…

      A big part of this depends on the group, though to me it is very clear too, that a lot of this space is created by the fine example of the Teacher Japjeet Rajbir Kaur Khalsa - and also Prabhu Anand Kaur (Ingrid Klabbers), who lovingly holds the space in the house and nourishes us with deliciously healthy food.

      The firmness and confronting aspect of the Yogic Teachings (and Sikh Dharma - from which a lot of the Teachings originate) are amazingly impressive and a real forte to Japjeet Rajbir’s approach. Their combination with the motherly, sisterly warmth and radiance of both Japjeet Rajbir and Ingrid is quite transformative… And because they both really ‘are’ from their Being, you feel almost automatically drawn into Yours. You go in deep right away, though every person gets to do so in their own pace and rhythm.

      And I must say (being a Kundalini Yoga Instructor myself) this combination of teaching and also Being yourself (which is normally not done in Kundalini Yoga - but in this case because you are with Women, it would feel unnatural if you don't, you put yourself out of the circle thus creating a missing link), really requires balancing on a very thin line: you really have to know and feel what you are sharing, and when (not)... And for me, Japjeet Rajbir mastered it, we could See her All, her beautiful naked Woman Soul and at the same time, she knew when to poke, provoke, confront and elevate as a true Teacher needs to do!

      I could go on about the program, the Love, the comfort, the ‘at home’ness, the beautiful surroundings and pure nature at the location, the extra sacred ‘Closing the Bones’ sessions Japjeet Rajbir offers, the food, the healing effect,… but I would just say, come and experience this for yourself, because that was the best part! For always engraved in Soul and Heart!

      I look back on a very interesting yoga week!

      I planned a lot the same evening at the following weekend but I canceled everything, just to give myself the time I needed to sit back and relax after such an impact.

      Emotionally, it was a tough week but that feeling did not last very long, it changed in a feeling of calmness, insight and clarity.

      I am so glad I asked you to organize this week and I am so grateful you did! I really need this!!

      The way you teach is so exciting, you teach with so much wisdom and respect, so devotedly!

      I cannot say enough how much I respect you ... I am just so lucky to be able to feel your energy and listen to your wise words. The value of your presence is so great! Wahe Guru!

      The week flew by so quickly… 7 days passed by so fast… but what a week!

      A week that indeed needs to be a week. Every day had its own need and value. Not one day could have been left out!

      Although I already learned and read a lot about everything, it felt so good to hear it again and to be confronted with it again… and it hit me big time!

      Lots of emotions came out… again… but calmness followed and gave me a nice feeling, a feeling of gratitude and surrender to what is.

      For many years I have doubted myself, I doubt being a good teacher because somewhere I always have the feeling that someone is judging me.

      Bit by bit I have gained the feeling again that the teachings I gave a few months ago were good, the students liked it, liked my teachings… so the idea of teaching again is growing ;-) Wahe Guru !

      My emotional rollercoaster… well that is a tough one of course but again it gave me much clarity. […]

      The Closing the Bones ceremony… well that was something so beautiful… that hit me really hard… that went so deep… such a intimate and venerable moment, from both sides (both when being the woman receiving the ceremony and when being the sister guiding it with the group)

      I just loved it!

      How gracefully you guide this ceremony… so beautiful to see and feel… you are so kind and so in the moment that one feels really taken care of… a feeling I have not experienced for a long time! Again… Thank you!

      I also read that other women want a follow-up on this week, a sequel… we talked about it in group, during one of our last days at Pellenberg… well that would be a great thing… coming back together and see how we are… and enjoy your teachings, be nurtured again ;-)

      Receiving a wake-up call! ;-)

      Thank you so much for being who you are!

      Thank you so much for spreading the teachings!

      Thank you so much for bringing women together, so they can open up and express how they really feel in this life!

      Thank you so much!

      Wahe Guru!

      Every day small miracles happen when I use the tips I learned during the women’s retreat. I’m incredibly happy that I gave myself the time to follow this very special retreat with such a wonderful group of women. It was so unique, eye opening!

      I am so grateful for meeting Japjeet. She has so much knowledge and passion, and is very inspiring. The three days were emotionally draining for me but still, at the end, I felt so much joy and peace in my heart. The food was the best. I hope to do another retreat soon.

      I really enjoyed the massage yesterday and felt more relaxed than I have in a very long time. I saw my mom and sister in the afternoon and they commented that I seemed different, and that even my posture was different. I felt so much softer in my shoulders, and a sense of calm and clarity so thank you very much for giving me that experience.

      It has been just a few weeks since I participated in the Excel and Celebrate retreat with Japjeet, Ingrid and 13 inspiring women from many different backgrounds and at different stages in their life experience. I am already noticing the differences in my life and feeling the benefits of this multi-faceted experience. I feel truly honored to have been able to participate in this life-changing course. Japjeet is a passionate, knowledgeable and 'human' teacher. She does not teach from a parapet, but is able to identify with and make time for every single woman in the room. The course was truly geared towards real-life situations allowing us to learn for ourselves simple ways to improve our current lives and relationships, based on the incredible Kundalini Yoga teachings. Japjeet is able to create an incredible atmosphere of love and trust, allowing women from many different walks of life to inspire and support one another on this journey of self-discovery. This is not your average yoga retreat - it brings up things, awakens new opportunities and ways of seeing - all in a totally supportive environment. Ingrid, our wonderful host has created a haven of love, peace and tranquility that is evident in the delicious food that she makes and the beautiful space that she has created. I have come home with a more open-hearted and joyful approach to life. Current challenges that I was experiencing in my relationship and my work feel much lighter. Stress and unease, that had become such a normal part of my life have reduced, and I have thus created more space for joy. I feel healthier, more energetic and inspired to create the life that I want for myself and my partner. This retreat is a true gift for any woman wanting to improve her life, health and relationships.

      What a week. So powerful, transforming, a real eye opener. Kundalini yoga already changed a great deal of my life but this women's' retreat was the cherry on the cake. Not that I’m ready, not that I arrived but it pushed me forward on this long road of finding peace with myself, with the world. I am a control freak but this retreat taught me so much about the importance of self care, about the differences between men and women and that we forgot and lost a great deal of our cultural ancient wisdom. Thank you, I am grateful. This week brought me closer to myself.

      What an intense Kundalini yoga weekend! I'm grateful for all the classes, training, and amazing KY-moments and people from the previous years that formed the preparation for this rebirthing weekend and enabled the positive intention I came with and the results I got from it. I'm extremely grateful to Japjeet Kaur who facilitated the deeply transformative process during the whole weekend and to the other students who embarked on the journey with me. Pure bliss. Incredible!

      Japjeet it was really so special, I feel reborn! I'm amazed at the power of Kundalini yoga (this yoga is even more powerful and beautiful than I had ever realized; even though I started years ago with Kundalini yoga, this weekend was incredibly special!) and I deeply admire the way you guide people through this process, as it was quite a big group (which made it even more beautiful and powerful!) and a very intense and deep process! I deeply bow before you, Sat Nam, thank you and much love, and I'll definitely be back soon again! I wholeheartedly recommend this experience to everyone!

      Sat Nam Japjeet and Prabhu Anand, what an incredibly amazing job you do together, the pure love and discipline and the truth of it are still buzzing in me on this day after the retreat. I'll probably write about this experience, there have been shifts and transformations that I hadn't expected, so beautiful! Much love.

      Thank you Japjeet for the intense weekend! Arms and legs are stiff, but a wonderful feeling resides inside! Thank you for holding the space and facilitating the process. By bringing both humor and discipline to the weekend, you have allowed us to grow and evolve more than we could ever have imagined! I am also filled with deep respect for these teachings. Such wisdom! I feel so grateful for having been a part of this! Again, thank you for your work this weekend. I really feel that things have changed on a deep level and in a profound way, although I can't put my finger on it yet.

      Another great day doing what I love and nicely finished off with a beautiful session of Kundalini yoga. Just what I needed yet again! A celestial communication meditation focusing on opening the heart space and being centered in the neutral mind. Thank you Japjeet Kaur Khalsa, my amazing teacher, who gives so much at every class. I am truly grateful. Wahe Guru.

      Just a quick email to say how much Hilary and I enjoyed yesterday. You are a wonderful teacher. We both learned a lot and got so much from it. My intention is to do the left nostril breathing while I am on my travels to calm me down before my training and presenting sessions over the next two weeks. I can highly recommend the burnout and depression workshop. I was on yesterday's workshop and it was brilliant. Japjeet is a fantastic teacher, whatever your level of experience. A very generous and knowledgeable teacher who puts everything into everyday language. Fantastic experience!

      I really enjoyed yesterday's session (in fact I love them all but yesterday's was especially good!). I just wanted to let you know as well how much I have been enjoying the classes. I feel a much calmer and happier person since attending and I use the skills you have taught us everyday! I wish I could introduce everyone to this experience!

      Shuniya Kundalini Yoga website

      Thank you, Japjeet! I have really benefited from today's class. Since I've been coming starting January 2013, I've been transforming. I love the transformation of my mind, my whole body, and soul. I am healing from the old to a new me. I have realized it might take me some time for further practice and I am willing to learn. Until now, nothing would cure or heal my spine and back, but these classes have and KY is strengthening every bone and muscle. Thank you for your teachings. Satnam.

    • Leah

      Kundalini yoga is fantastic, it is completely holistic, and Shuniya Kundalini yoga's teacher Japjeet Kaur Khalsa is very authentic, she lives and breathes yoga. I have been doing yoga for years and I am so glad I have recently found this practice, I know it is really working to help balance the body system and strengthen the mind and spirit, if you like a challenge give it a go.

      "This 'Excel & Celebrate' programme has opened up a new world for me! It has given deeper meaning to my 'womanhood'. For the first time in my life I was told that a woman has eleven moon points and that the energy changes from moon point to moon point every two and a half days, in a fixed pattern that repeats itself every month. I learned that we can make our own personal graph which can help us so much, for example in planning our daily life (when to make important decisions and when not to, e.g. not when the moon energy is in a point that renders us insecure). I learned that this moon cycle is also the reason why men find us women so hard to fathom - because it makes us so complex. At least once a week I flip through the manual and every time I again feel the energy that we created as a group! I can only recommend to every woman out there to participate in this 'Excel & Celebrate' programme. Japjeet is an incredible teacher, I am grateful that she crossed my path!"

    • Sabine

      Shuniya Kundalini Yoga website

      I got to know Kundalini Yoga and Japjeet Kaur two years ago, during an 'Excel & Celebrate' weekend workshop. What I loved most about the workshop were the empathy within the group; the respect for each other, for oneself, and for All that Is; the power, connection and love; and the teachings behind this program. Meanwhile I've started taking Kundalini yoga classes twice a week and I feel the changes in my body - emotionally I'm a lot more balanced than I was two years ago. Japjeet Kaur is a patient and very stimulating teacher, who truly lives what she teaches. I can only recommend this workshop to anybody!

    • Ingrid

      Shuniya Kundalini Yoga website

      Kundalini Yoga, through its versatility, has brought more structure and more depth to my life. I've been practicing Kundalini Yoga for a year now. At first I attended weekly classes, but slowly it became part of my daily life, through an intense but very harmonious process. To me Japjeet Kaur is a very inspiring woman, she has that female power, that Shakti, that our times so desperately need. Both the regular classes and Japjeet's women workshop 'Excel & Celebrate' are like an oasis where in deep honesty and vulnerability you can come closer to your essence and your womanhood, where you can share this process with other women, and where you can experience the sense of recognition and mutual support. I can only say: give yourself this gift.

    • Prabhujeet

      Shuniya Kundalini Yoga website

      After having practiced Hatha Yoga for three years, I encountered Kundalini Yoga. What an immense difference! The difference doesn't just lie in the yoga form as such - which is much more dynamic - but mostly in its effects. I can see why Kundalini Yoga is called the mother form of yoga. Yoga, for me, is a way of release, it's where I can get rid of stress, where I can accept the past and be in the here and now. Where I can take some time out for myself. And believe me, that feels so good! I also attended Japjeet Kaur's women's program 'Excel & Celebrate.' I'm a rather introvert person, but I'm glad I decided to join that workshop. I learned so much about myself there, understood so much more about myself afterwards. I was surrounded by such kind, warm, loving people. We did some beautiful 'processes'. There were tears of sadness and support, but also of love, happiness and joy. I also discovered that sometimes there is so much pain and suffering 'hidden' where on the outside you would just see a strong, cheerful person. I'm not alone! The inspiring words from this program 'I Am a Woman, I Am Divine' and 'Bountiful, Blissful and Beautiful', are still with me.
