Tarn Taran Singh Khalsa
Tarn Taran Singh was part of the alternative youth culture of the late ‘60’s, participating in the anti-Vietnam War movement and then, “dropping out” to join the Hippie subculture in northern California. While traveling to Mexico in 1972, he and his wife, Tarn Taran Kaur, stopped in Tucson Arizona and joined a Kundalini Yoga Ashram where they became students of Yogi Bhajan. Yogi Bhajan gave them their spiritual names and asked the young couple to go to Europe to spread the teachings of Kundalini Yoga.
Tarn Taran Singh became the 3HO European Regional Director, and during his 25 years in Europe, founded the Guru Ram Das Ashram in Hamburg Germany; the European Yogi Tea Company; the 3HO European Yoga Festival; and the first European Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training program.
After Yogi Bhajan’s passing, they moved to New Mexico where for over 11 years, Tarn Taran Singh was the Executive Director of the KRI Aquarian Training Program, overseeing the growth of Teacher Training to over 300 annual programs, taught in 50 countries and 26 languages and supported by a Trainer Academy of over 700 members.
Since retiring, Tarn Taran Singh continues to travel and teach and share his wit, wisdom and music around the globe.

In 1976, they established the first German Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training program and German Kundalini Yoga Teacher Association. Tarn Taran Kaur has dedicated her life to teaching Kundalini Yoga, using Yogi Bhajan’s motto: “A teacher must train the student to be TEN times greater than his/her self!” She was recognized personally by Yogi Bhajan as a Level One and Level Two Teacher Trainer.

Today she shares the teaching of Kundalini Yoga around the globe, with her home base in New Mexico with her husband, Tarn Taran Singh.

Teacher & Founder
Yogi Bhajan was a spiritual teacher of great caliber. He was born on the 26th of August, 1929, in the north of India. He left his body on October 6, 2004, in Espanola, USA. He studied a variety of yogic and spiritual teachings from an early age, becoming a master of Kundalini Yoga at the age of sixteen. Living the life of a householder (he was married and had three children) he decided in 1968 to go to the west and teach.
From this beginning a worldwide organization (3HO Foundation, the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) has grown, a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading the teachings of Kundalini Yoga. Inspired by Yogi Bhajan, a number of 3HO members have embraced the Sikh religion, many aspects of which are relevant to present times including the equality of men and women of all religions, races and cultures. Yogi Bhajan put his whole heart in teaching yogic techniques, formerly shrouded by secrecy, to help humanity to find its natural joy, which he considered its birthright. He taught a large number of yoga sets and gave nutritional advice to maintain good health. Since his first conference in Los Angeles in 1969 he has offered the technology of Kundalini Yoga as a way to deeply understand and experience what it means to be a human being.
