Jenn Mercier, aka: Ong Kar Dev Kaur, is a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga and meditation teacher, currently working towards the KRI 500HR certification. She has been immersed in mind body practices since 2003. Over the years she has acquired over a 1000 hours in mentorships and continuing education along with several certifications: Black Belt in Ed Parker American Kenpo, Reiki Master Teacher Attunement, E-RYT 200HR in Yoga Flow, Certified My OmAbilities Teacher (Yoga for disabilities).

After an amazing investigation and journey in various holistic practices, Kundalini Yoga is what eventually captured her heart. Although she holds all Yoga in the highest regard, Kundalini is now what she dedicates herself to. As she puts it, when she was exposed to the practice in her Vinyasa training, she fell madly in love. It was different, it was challenging in the most unexpected ways, it was fabulously unique, and in short it was ALL she ever wanted. It provided the clarity, the peace, and the deep prayer within that she had longed for. Kundalini Yoga proved time and time again that it produced these effects in a quick direct manner.

Ong Kar Dev Kaur has a strong daily practice and a deep desire to share these teachings with her community. She has an unique sense of humor and always promotes the fact that you should never take yourself so seriously that you can’t laugh or crack a smile in a Yoga class. Show up to her class ready to work, laugh, perhaps cry and have a Kundalini Yoga experience, which in itself will always be one of a kind.

"Every beat of your heart is the rhythm of your soul. The voice of your soul is your breath." ~ Yogi Bhajan

On snowy days you can find her in the mountains with her snowboard, or on the sandy beaches of the North Shore on a hot summer day. Lisa started practicing yoga for better balance and strengthfor when she goes snowboarding but the more she stepped onto the mat and became more knowledgeable of her body and of her inner self she fell in love with the art of yoga.

Lisa has been practicing yoga for over 5 years! Her passion for the art has taken her across the globe to Bali, Indonesia to earn her teaching certificate in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with the All Yoga Training Program. Most recently she even received her Yin Yoga certificate through My Meditative Yin Yoga. Over years of practice, determination and hard work she is excited and humbled to bring her experience here to help practitioners of all levels feel comfortable in their own bodies.
