Raj Adesh Kaur (Carolyn McTaggart)
I’m a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga, gong and meditation teacher based in Glasgow. The seeds of my Kundalini Yoga journey were planted in 2015 when I first experienced Yogi Bhajan's teachings. I welcomed and embraced the deeper connection to mind, body and spirit. It opens you to new sensations – more energy, positive thoughts, flexibility, strength and creative expression.
I’m particularly fascinated by the healing qualities of the Naad (the essence of all sound) – whether through my interests in music, dance, mantra or the gong - and how it helps us elevate our spirit and enrich our lives. I lead regular classes and workshops suitable for all abilities – from complete beginners to more experienced yogis.
“You don’t have to find anything outside of you. The jewels are all in you.” - Yogi Bhajan
I’ll equip you with the practical tools and techniques as taught by Yogi Bhajan, which you can use to build strength, vitality and aid relaxation – connecting breath, mantra, movement and meditation to raise your potential, while encouraging safe practice.
I completed my Level 1 Kundalini Yoga teacher training with Sahej Academy and trained with gong master Mehtab Benton. I’m now discovering more jewels through my level 2 modules drawing inspiration from the Kundalini Yoga community worldwide.
Further professional trainings include:
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapy Level 1+2, AYM UK, Glasgow 2019
White Tantric, London 2017, Berlin 2019
21 Stages of Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Gloucester 2017

“Carolyn has a kind, open heart and makes everyone feel welcome – no matter if you’re a beginner or an advanced yogi. It’s great learning yoga with someone who has such a passion and interest in the practice, as I always feel safe and comfortable with her – not to mention fitter, healthier and happier.” – Erica, Glasgow
“I've been doing Kundalini Yoga now for almost 3 years...the difference it has made to my life I would describe as incredible…” – Shary, Kilwinning
Classes, workshops, retreats
All my studio classes and workshops are paused for as long as necessary during the global crisis to support the health and vitality of our communities and families.
Sending all my love and support - let's uplift each other.
