Mahan-Kalpa Khalsa has been practicing Kundalini Yoga for decades, living and teaching in a traditional religious community. As he was coming out of the closet, he discovered Body Electric which helped him realize that he can celebrate himself as a gay man and also have a dedicated spiritual practice. Now he is on a path to integrate Tantra teachings about pleasure with the power of the breath, which is integral to Kundalini Yoga. For him that means exploring movement, meditation, and sensual and erotic adventures so that each moment in the day brings joy. Currently he is a coordinator for the Body Electric, a Sacred Intimate, and is now in a one-year training to explore sacred intimacy using Tantric principles. He is a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor and teacher trainer; and he teaches a Men's Nude Yoga class at the GLBT center in Orlando. He also collects antique pickup trucks and adores his three grandchildren.
