Gloria Latham is an inspiring Global Kundalini Yoga teacher known for her transformative immersion programmes that she runs online and in person, in many locations across the globe.

She worked as a licensed pharmacist for almost ten years before discovering the healing benefits of Yoga and meditation and has been sharing the traditions of Kundalini Yoga for over 20 years. Gloria is the founder of Semperviva Yoga Studios in Vancouver and a Lululemon Global Ambassador.

I discovered Gloria in November 2015 at a Lululemon Yoga Rave in London. I dabbled with some of her online classes, but it wasn’t until I’d hit a low point with my life that I decided to dedicate more time to this practice. You can read more about my story here.

I completed her Self Mastery Series in December 2018, and it’s had such a profound impact on all aspects of my life, I can’t imagine a day without a Yoga and meditation practice.

In this episode, I chat with Gloria about what brought her to yoga, what Kundalini Yoga is to her, meditation, the Three Minds, how she came to create the Self Mastery Series and Immersions, and the use of mantra in Kundalini Yoga and why it is such an intrinsic part of the practice.

Episode 1: Punk Rock Yoga – Interview with Kimberlee Jensen Stedl

It was such a pleasure to speak with founder and creator of Punk Rock Yoga and the Punk Rock Yoga Manifesto, Kimberlee Jensen Stedl. I can’t think a better way to kick-start my Bad Juju Yoga Podcast mini-series.

Kimberlee is a yoga teacher and a busy mum, who founded Punk Rock Yoga in 2004. She’s inspired 100s of yogis around the globe with her self published yoga philosophy book, the Punk Rock Yoga Manifesto which she intended to be a “jumping off point” for any reader. In this episode we chat about the ‘why’ behind Punk Rock Yoga and the creation of the manifesto, the elitism in 00s Yoga, and how we can move beyond the physical practice of yoga to establish a more Yogic lifestyle.
