Sylvia (spiritual name “Charan”) wears many hats — from IT Professional to wife, mother and grandmother. But her passion is Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. After many years searching for self-healing, by practicing various forms of yoga, meditation and energy-related healing modalities, she found that the technology of Kundalini Yoga is what works for her. Her mission is to help others find what she found — deep healing on all levels,stress reduction, peace, and a better quality of life. Having begun her own yoga practice later in life, she feels that yoga can be practiced at any age and flexibility level, and wants to share the many benefits with others. Her specialty is gentle yoga, with inspiring music, meditation and relaxation to the healing sounds of the gong and crystal bowls. Sylvia is an IKYTA certified, RYT-200 yoga teacher, and teaches at Yoga Central on Tuesday evenings 6:30pm. She also has the honor of facilitating full moon and new moon meditations at our center.

“Kalyan Darshan” (Jacinta)
Having been promised a gong bath, Jacinta unknowingly attended her first Kundalini Yoga Class! What she discovered was a yoga practice that included her most endeared pursuits, spirituality and mysticism, music and meditation, neuroscience and empowering exercise. She began a regular Kundalini Yoga practice and within a year had overcome conditions she’d been unable to resolve until then. When Yoga Central announced it’s inaugural Teacher Training program, she signed up immediately. Kalyan Darshan is now a teacher with classes on Thursday and Friday mornings at 10am and guides meditations for peace. She brings to every class the powerful practice of chanting mantra. Experiencing creating these sacred sound currents together as a group is uplifting, energizing, healing and joyful!
Kalyan Darshan brings more than two decades of live music experience as a vocalist, songwriter, musician and DJ. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy and Physiology, a Bachelor of Metaphysics, and is a Reiki Master, Sound Healer and Meditation Guide. She officiates marriages and performs divine services as an ordained metaphysical minister with the International Ministry of Metaphysics. Kalyan Darshan supports the conscious awakening of humanity as we enter the Aquarian Age and very much looks forward to practicing with you soon.

Catherine Bane Rumph/Sarab Sevak Kaur – BA in Communications, Level 3 Art & Yoga Teacher, Certified KRI Teacher of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®, Co-Creator of Everyday Goddess and Founder of Art & Yoga for Everybody. Catherine calls her practice of Kundalini Yoga “the missing link.” After receiving her Bachelors Degree in Communications from Loyola University New Orleans, Catherine’s career in Sales and Marketing skyrocketed. She became a top sales producer for one of the nation’s largest home builders. Using her training experience, she then created Spread Success – a targeted marketing consulting firm. Coaching small business owners on growing their market share assisted Catherine in her wider understanding that “success” has a dramatically different definition for each individual. This, and giving birth to her three children, led to redefining her own idea of a successful life.
After years of spiritual journey work, including Contemplative Prayer, Bible Study, Twelve Step Recovery, Silent Retreats, Traditional Meditation and Creating Art through Meditation, Catherine was introduced to Art & Yoga with Hari Kirin Kaur Khaksa, Master of Kundalini Yoga. Through a daily art, yoga and meditation practice, Catherine has learned to comfortably and joyfully live inside her own skin. Finding a connection to her physical body was the “missing link” to living fully in the here and now. Her passion and focus is sharing how to “Bloom where you’re planted” through the practice of Yoga, Meditation and Art. Combining these practices allows Catherine to embody her spiritual name Sarab Sevak Kaur, The Lioness of God who is complete within herself in Divine Service to all.
Catherine is a Clear Lake native and currently lives with her husband of many, many years and their three children in Taylor Lake Village, TX.
