Children and Teens at Sat Nam Fest
Children under 13 do not need to purchase event passes. If your child is between 4-12 and you would like them to participate in children’s camp then you need to purchase a children’s camp pass. Children ages 13-17 need to have an event pass or register for Teen’s Camp (which includes their festival entrance)
Children of all ages are welcome at Sat Nam Fest and we encourage you to bring your children with you to sadhana, yoga class, workshops and concerts. We do ask that if your child is becoming rambunctious or disruptive that you take them out of the space until they have calmed down. Once they are calm they are more than welcome to come back and join in!

MEET THE TEACHERS
Jai Fuller has worked with children in many capacities her whole life. She is a certified childcare provider, and has worked alongside her parents in their holistic daycare center for over 15 years. Jai founded the Khalsa Camp in 1999 and has been co-directing the program every summer, where she teaches children (ages 5-13) yoga and meditation, dance, swimming, acting etc. As a Sikh, Jai was born and raised in a yogic lifestyle, and enjoys teaching kundalini yoga to children and adults alike. Currently she teaches prenatal, postnatal and children’s yoga classes in her community. Jai’s teaching style mirrors her everyday relationships: she is bright, enthusiastic, and heart-centered. Jai is an accomplished dancer, and has received extensive training in ballet, modern and West African dance. In 1997 Jai joined the Boston Dance Company where she performed leading roles professionally. She has taught both creative movement and West African dance classes to children and adults over the years and is the assistant director of The Center Dance’s yearly Nutcracker Production. Jai leads children’s programs at both The Omega institute and Kripalu. She is happily married and has a ten year old son, Amar Das and a two year old daughter, Nam Bani.
Amar has a wide range of interests in her life, and the one thing her interests share in common is that they all relate to the physical and spiritual well-being of people and the planet. She has devoted her life to caring for children. Much of her week is dedicated to the smooth operation of Khalsa Childcare which she runs out of her home. Visitors to Khalsa Childcare are always impressed with the graceful and spiritual way the children and staff interact with each other. Another of Amar’s passions in life is healthy diet and nutrition. She is a certified Health Educator from the Hippocrates Health Institute. She spends many hours training raw food chefs to prepare amazing healthy foods in her kitchen. The children at her childcare program enjoy an organic raw and living foods diet. Amar also teaches weekly classes in Kundalini Yoga, and she hosts monthly women’s sharing circles. She can often be seen tending to her abundant garden or taking her morning walks with her husband. In her daycare and in her life, Amar is grateful for the powerful influences of many teachers who have taught her a great deal about authenticity and spirituality, deep inner-listening and conscious communication. Yogi Bhajan an Indian spiritual master, Brian and Anna Maria Clement the directors of the world renowned Hippocrates Health Institute, and Grandmother Lillian Pitawanakwat a native elder and shaman. Amar draws upon the vast teachings set forth by these powerful people and many others as she interacts and cares for children and adults alike. Amar is the mother of three and the grandmother of four. She is a heart-centered musician, loves to be in nature, to swim, play tennis and African dance.
