Nicole Ward (Guru Karam Kaur) is a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT200) and Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) certified in IYT (Hatha Yoga), Kundalini Yoga, Virya Yoga (Power) and other various supplemental modalities including Yoga for Youth and Radiant Child Yoga. Having produced and co-directed over 100 hours of television with Berkeley Community Media, she is an inspiring, engaging and experienced teacher…

Nicole/Guru Karam started her studies with Bay Area favorite Larry Shultz in the late 90’s and was fortunate enough to have participated in yearly courses with Ashtanga-Vinyasa master/founder Sri K Patthabhi Jois. With an interest in serving “the culture of trauma”, Nicole went on to study with lead teacher trainers Joseph and Lilian La Page of IYT and to ultimately specialize in Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan).

Today, she continues to train with world-renowned teachers such as Sat Santokh Singh (Self Worth & … the Wounds of Life), Krishna Kaur (Yoga for Youth) and Shakta Kaur Khalsa (Radiant Child Yoga) while serving as yoga teacher and trainer extraordinaire.
