Prenatal Yoga for pregnant women. Each class concludes with sharing. Contact us if you are interested. You can also join if you\’re not pregnant but prefer this gentler class over a regular group class, or if this time suits you better.
Did you know you can take time off work to attend antenatal classes, and that this includes prenatal yoga classes? Your employer cannot ‘unreasonably refuse’ you paid time off to attend antenatal care classes during working hours when you are pregnant. This includes time travelling to and from the appointments. Parent craft, prenatal yoga and relaxation classes can be included in the term ‘antenatal care’ as ‘antenatal care’ isn’t just medical appointments – it can also include antenatal or parenting classes if they have been recommended by a doctor or midwife. You may however find it helpful to show your employer proof from your GP or midwife that states that these classes are part of your care. See www.shuniya-yoga.org/prenatal-postnatal-yoga for more information. Location: 118 Bosworth Street, Leicester LE3 5RD. You can arrive from around 10 mins. beforehand. Parking is on the street.

Sat Naam. I am Dr. Japjeet Rajbir Kaur (before becoming a Sikh I was known as Dr. Nele Bemong) and I have been practicing yoga for about 13 years now. After having practiced Hatha Yoga for a few years, I came into contact with Kundalini Yoga and immediately experienced the transformational power of this 'Yoga of Awareness'. I started teaching Kundalini Yoga in 2008 in Belgium, where (alongside my work as a postdoctoral researcher at university) I taught up to 5 KY classes per week and experienced what a difference this yoga practice can make to people's lives. In the winter of 2011 I left my academic career in Belgium behind to fully focus on my work as a Kundalini Yoga (KY) teacher and to develop new programs in the UK.
Ever since January 2011 I have been teaching KY full-time in the UK. I teach regular KY classes in Leicester and run half-day and full-day workshops on specific themes, weekend workshops, and week retreats, both in the UK and in mainland Europe. I also regularly work together with other teachers and holistic therapists, teaching at health retreats or spiritual awakening retreats, and I teach yoga at Sikh camps around the UK. Over the past years I have specialised in, amongst others, KY for stress management, burnout, depression and anxiety; addiction recovery; pre- and postnatal yoga; and men’s, women's and relationships teachings.
I am also a nutrition & health coach, a yogic massage therapist, aromatherapist, life coach and yoga coach, a postnatal doula and Closing the Bones practitioner and trainer.
Partly thanks to over a decade of working in academia writing a PhD, doing 7 years of postdoctoral research, combined with teaching and holding a Chair at Penn University in Philadelphia (US), I have built up a strong reputation for my rich yogic knowledge and my ability to bring deeply complex teachings in a way that is very easy to understand and grasp for all, whether students have any prior knowledge or not. I am deeply spiritual yet at the same time very down-to- earth and ‘real’, and know how to make the yogic teachings practical, tangible and easy to integrate in a modern Western life. I am very open and direct in my teachings and will cut to the essence, but will always do so with a lot of love for and always in service of the students.
