A yoga teacher from Texas shot and killed two home invaders as they allegedly attempted to rob her in her residence just north of Santiago, Chile, police said on Friday.

Hari Nam Kaur Khalsa, 61, was in her bedroom in her Batuco home on Thursday when four men entered the room and hit her in the head with a firearm.

The men tried to tie her up but Khalsa was able to free herself and grabbed her registered Taurus model revolver beneath her pillow.

She shot two of the men and the two others escaped.

None of the men's identities have been released.

One man died after being shot five times, reported. The other died of his injuries in the front yard, according to Dallas News.

Hearing the gunshots upstairs caused the two men downstairs to flee the premises.

'This is not a grandma as you can imagine,' Jose Nunez, who manages the condominium where she lives told local press.

'So don't be imagining a little grandma who killed two crooks with her cane.'

Prosecutor Osvaldo Soto said Friday the instructor is free because she acted in legitimate self-defense

But he said that authorities have requested a security escort because 'we fear that she might suffer some sort of reprisal'.

A profile on the yoga academy website says the instructor was born in Texas where she studied martial arts and sociology and has been living in Chile since 1979.

She told local Radio Cooperativa that she prefers not to talk about the incident now.

The burglary happened at Khalsa's home in Batuco, which is about 20 miles north of the capital city of Santiago

Wonderful...hats off to the Sikhni... her presence of mind and bravery.
Also is an example of what a weapon can do in the hands of a good person...the bad person will think twice before attempting anything again.
