Enjoy a playlist of "Sacred Mornings" with the Mantras for the Aquarian Sadhana and the Portuguese translation of Jap Ji Sahib by Siri Priya Kaur
Born in Brazil, Karina Skye found Kundalini Yoga “by chance” when, being already an Experienced Hatha Yogi and Teacher, she went to audition for a new teacher's position at a studio and ended up taking her first Kundalini Yoga class as Thought by Yogi Bhajan. Feeling the immediate effects of this powerful practice and being deeply moved by what she had just experienced, Karina decided to incorporate Kundalini Yoga into her daily practice and saw immediate effects. As Yogi Bhajan's teachings became to her a great source of inspiration and empowerment, Karina became a dedicated Kundalini Yoga student. Her beloved teacher Deva Kaur Khalsa inspired her to use her talents as a tool in this world and knowing Karina was already a well established recording artist and singer/songwriter, Deva Kaur encouraged her to chant during classes and experience the power of Gurmukhi, Gurbani, and Kundalini Yoga Mantras. These opportunities not only made such a deep impact in her personal life but also served as a bridge between her life as a Yogi and her career as a purposeful and well-known popular singer. She was then given the name of Siri Priya Kaur and decided to live up to the meaning of her name as The Great Beloved and Divine Messenger, utilizing her voice and musical skills to inspire, empower, awaken and others.
As she deepened her personal yogic practice and her appreciation for Yogi Bhajan's Kundalini Yoga, her path started to undeniably unfold. She started to regularly lead the Aquarian Sadhana Mantras at local Yoga studios, branching out to other states, countries, and eventually becoming one of the resident chants leader at Winter Solstice Kundalini Yoga Sadhana Celebrations. Her newfound path took her to spend years meticulously studying the Mantras for the Aquarian Sadhana and recording "Sacred Morning" with her own version of the Mantras under the supervision of Garbani Kirtan Ragi, Gurmukhi and Voice coach Sangeet Kaur Khalsa; and being the first to record a Portuguese version of the Jap Ji Sahib. She has also accompanied teachers on Level 3 Kundalini Teacher Trainings leading the chants from the "21 Stages of Meditation" course.
As Karina Skye, she had already released over 30 albums, in various genres including Yoga inspired music. The genres were many but the purpose are always one: to inspire and empower the listener through conscious and purposeful lyrics. As Siri Priya Kaur, she continues to fulfill her Dharma by recording mantras and sacred music, leading Sadhanas, Kundalini Yoga Classes, Sacred Concerts and Workshops, always striving to live up to her highest potential. Siri Priya Kaur is creative and innovative in her music and delivery, playing every instrument by herself and looping it live with looping pedals and electronic resources, not only creating a magical meditative atmosphere but also unlimited in her delivery, being able to take us on a journey through meditation, movement, dance and ecstasy. Catch her live and you will be mesmerized and deeply inspired.
