Sat Bani Kaur (Elisa)
For years, I have served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. My spirtiual journey began with the birth of my first child in 2009, where I became acutely aware of the importance of health and nutrition in a very chronically ill society, where all our food is processed and our environments toxic. I ventured into endurance running and plant based eating that would continue to lead me down a path where I was required to question everything I was ever taught, in order to make conscious, informed choices for my children. My own self love and ever expanding holistic views deepened, and in 2014, I was blessed with twins who initiated me further, brining me to the point of breaking, I moved through many stages of highs and lows in those early years, and as the clouds of exhaustion parted I could see the lessons they my children were imparting. The showing me how strong I really was, what I was capable of was far beyond the limitations we set for ourselves! I fell deeply in love with yoga, learning to honour myself was the best medicine. In 2016 I was introduced to Kundalini yoga, and it ignited a complete transformation of mind, body and spirit. It changed the way I parent, the way I viewed my nursing career, and the way I viewed…. Well…EVERYTHING! Continuing on this journey, I was attuned to Holy Fire Reiki in 2017, which was my introduction into world of energetics, and its healing abilities. I have Always known the importance of keeping our physical vessel strong, healthy and agile. As a lover of all things fitness, I grew up enjoying gymnastics, volleyball, and endurance running. So this new found knowledge of health through the view of the 3 fold human (mind, body, spirit) suddenly made me realize the pieces of the puzzle I was missing all along.
I knew that I would go on to teach, and 2018 was the year my children were old enough to allow me the space to give myself the deep reflective & contemplative time required to do such a training. I completed my 220hr teacher training in Camrose, Alberta with the highly esteemed Sat Dharam Kaur.
I’m also a nurse part time with the WRHA, my 18 years of health care experience has been invaluable to me on this journey. If I had not seen and witnessed so much pain and suffering, then I might not have been able to see the truth & reality of our health care system, nor would I be motivated to move into a new career where I can help people in the way I always intended. Which is to promote health & wellbeing, PREVENT disease, bring balance to physical & energetic body, facilitate healing, & spiritual reconnection .
My most important job of all is wife, mother and home educator to my four daughters, ages 9-4 years.
I founded Graceful Evolution with a mission to share the experiences Kundalini Yoga & Meditation has to offer, along with the healing abilities of Reiki, the nutritional aspects of plant-based eating, nourishing ways of parenting the next generation in a respectful & holistic way, and offer insights that I have learned along the way.
In 2019 Samadhi Retreats was born, a divine collaboration between my partner Wes & dear friend Gabrielle owner of Spa Botanica, Winnipeg. Together we create opportunities for people to escape the busy life, and jump into a deeply nourishing experience of ceremony, & self honouring.
Feel free to reach out if you would like to collaborate on a project together.
