Demia Espinal, Delprem Kaur, is a certified Kundalini Yogainstructor (certified by Pritpal Singh and Pritpal Kaur Khalsa whoworked directly with Yogi Bhajan). Originally, Demia  is from the Southside of Chicago, IL. While growing up in an urbanized area, Demia was always taught the value of an education, perserverance and seeking a higher self by her single mother. Demia pursued and obtained two college degrees and set out to change the world through her experiences and education, only to be left broken and misunderstood. In 2012, while pregnant with her fourth child, she signed up for Bethany Joy's prenatal yoga classes. During her first class, Demia felt elevated and the awakening of her energy centers. She continued attending prenatal classes leading up to the day of delivery.

Demia soon felt the calling and entered into Kundalini Yoga teacher trianing in the fall of 2014. While attending teacher training, she experienced spiritual cleansing, rebirthing, self-awareness, and expansion. It was what she had been looking for for many years. After several years of leading professional educator duties with Metro Nashville Public Schools, she departed and was called to teach Kundalini Yoga.

Demia has always had a heart to serve individuals in disadvantaged areas around the world. Now Demia bring's the transformational Kundalini Yoga & Meditation to the women's jail in Nashville. She writes and demonstrates Kundalini Yoga meditations on her online blog and teaches private lessons in her home in Smyrna. Demia is exicted to spread the gift of Kundalini Yoga to all and live in service to all.
