Cate Baily (Arvind Dev Kaur)
Cate discovered Kundalini Yoga by accident over 20 years ago and was surprised and thrilled by how engaged, energized, and inspired it made her feel. She's been practicing ever since. In 2008, Cate completed her Level 1 (200 hr) teacher training with Hari Kaur Khalsa of Hari NYC. In 2012, she broadened her knowledge with a very special Holistic Hatha Yoga training (300 hr) with Amy Witmyer of Sacred Space.

Andy Steinfeld (Teg Avtar)
It is an understatement to say that Andy is very excited to begin his Kundalini Yoga teaching career at Montclair Kundalini Yoga. His journey toward becoming a spiritual teacher began with the book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz which offers a philosophical framework for living. The book literally saved his life and brought him joy and happiness. Soon after finding this book, he discovered Kundalini Yoga. He was instantly hooked and began studying and deepening his practice with the guidance of Cate and Savitri at Montclair Kundalini Yoga. Andy likes to say, "When I finished The Four Agreements, the light came back into my life. When I found Kundalini, that light went to technicolor." Andy recently graduated from 200 hour teacher training with Hari Kaur and Dharma Devi. His love of this practice and life is very deep and evident in his presence at the studio.
Jennifer Ferguson (Devi Kavita)
Jennifer (Devi Kavita) entered the world of Kundalini Yoga in 2016 while in search of a way to meditate and has since been hooked. She immediately fell in love with the practice, finding it to be profoundly transformational, and has developed a deep, daily spiritual practice which has enhanced her life on many different levels. Jennifer is also a full-time Registered Nurse and is grateful for the teachings of Kundalini for giving her a fresh perspective on her service to others. Kundalini has given her a more holistic view of the mind, body, and spirit and this has not only influenced her nursing career but also her relationship to herself and the world in general. Jennifer completed a level one KYTT in June 2018 with Hari Kaur Khalsa and Dharma Devi, and this training has inspired her to go further in her nursing studies at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine so she may expand on her services to humanity. Join her on Tuesday mornings at 11am: Kundalini Yoga & Meditation.
