Tejpal holds a master’s in psychology and an MBA. She began her career in human resources and leadership development. Within a few years she became the vice president of human resources for a hotel chain based in Paris. At age 33, Tejpal felt that her soul mission had yet to be fulfilled; she moved from Paris to New York and established an executive coaching practice. Still seeking a more meaningful life, she attended the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. She also graduated as a kundalini yoga instructor. Today she teaches kundalini yoga and facilitates workshops on intuition, soul mission, and vibrant living.
