Lynn Roulo is a KRI certified Kundalini yoga instructor who received her certification from the Guru Ram Das Ashram in San Francisco. She began her teaching experience at homeless shelters throughout San Francisco and started the Rasayan Center, a kundalini yoga studio in San Franciscoʼs financial district in 2009. In February of 2012, she relocated to Athens, Greece. Not your typical yoga instructor, Lynn is also a United States CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and business consultant. Lynn began her study of the Enneagram in 1995. Her training includes the Enneagram Intensive, Foundations of Spiritual Method, and the Enneagram Typing Process. While living in San Francisco, California, she spoke on numerous narrative tradition panels with facilitators including Helen Palmer and Peter O’Hanrahan.
“I came to Kundalini yoga during a difficult period in my life when I wanted change. I tried Kundalini yoga at the recommendation of a friend having no idea what it was. Each class made me feel better and eventually, I wanted to deepen my practice so I enrolled in the teacher training program. I now look back on that difficult period of my life and feel gratitude for the path it put me on. It was really the combination of the physical practice of Kundalini yoga and my prior study of the Enneagram that allowed me to make some big positive changes. I think when you combine an intellectual understanding of yourself, which you get through the Enneagram, and a strong nervous system, which you get through Kundalini yoga, you can make great leaps forward in your life.”–Lynn
