Sat Nam! This is Mandeep.
I began my journey as a professional Yoga Teacher in 2000. I was led to practice Yoga due to a chronic, painful low back compression combined with an intense early onset of Menopause. I was hesitant to go to a class but my friend (ANGEL) convinced me to try. After just one yoga class I was amazed at how much better I felt, balanced and stronger and instantly knew this was my dharmic path of Healing.
In 2005, I relocated from Las Vegas to Cedar City, Utah which turned out to be a significant turning point and became an incredible journey of transformation and evolution. I was guided upon receiving my Kundalini Level One Training to create a community center, sanctuary and haven, where all are welcome and offer the profound technology of the Yoga of Awareness to anyone and everyone! Sage Hills 108, Your Self Elevation Station opened it’s doors in the spring of 2010 with the effect of people coming from all over the world to participate in the teachings and Self Elevated Experiences that continue to be offered!
I have earned 1000 hours plus of Yoga, Meditation, and Sound Healing certifications and I’m registered with the International Kundalini Teacher’s Association, Yoga Alliance as well as the International Yoga Therapists Association. I consider myself to be a Life Long Student as the more I become aware and teach, the more I become aware of how much more is to be experienced! It’s a wonderful Beginners Mind that keeps me renewed, feeling young and more and more Whole. I offer Teacher’s Training and Continuing Education Workshops that are recognized by Kundalini Research Institute and Yoga Alliance. I co-teach Level One, Level Two Kundalini Professional Training with my Lead Teacher and Mentor – Mehtab Benton from Austin, Texas, who is an awesome Teacher and overall fabulous Dude! I have learned so much through Mehtab, especially about the Gongs. We are both totally GAGA re GONGS!
I am eager to begin teaching again in Las Vegas and creating a heart centered connection with the Spiritual Community that is thriving here. I look forward to meeting you very soon! Thank you and Wahe Guru!
Now a Vegas local for over 10 years, I was born and raised on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. I spent my childhood years growing up on beautiful Kaneohe Bay and spent high school years living in Costa Rica with my family where I first starting practicing yoga, highly encouraged by my mother.
In 2016, after suddenly losing the love of my life, I discovered Kundalini Yoga and Meditation along with other holistic approaches to cope with the experience of deep painful grieving. I began an epic journey of healing which led me to my very first 220hr Yoga Alliance training. While training and receiving the potent and effective teachings of this ancient yogic technology, I realized my dream and mission to share these authentic powerful teachings of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
Soon after I completed another 220hr teacher training with the Kundalini Research Institute under the tutelage of Dr. Haridass, PhD, and dove deeply into study with many other masterful teachers. I was honored to study with and complete KRI Level 2 with Guru Singh, and have since studied with and completed workshops and trainings with Rama Institute’s Guru Jagat, Harijiwan, Tej, and Gurujas, along with Sukhdev Jackson, Jai-Jagdeesh, Jai Dev, Snatam Kaur, and The Khalsa Way training for conscious pregnancy with Gurmukh, collectively earning over 700 hours of training.
I continue to study and consider myself a forever student, always seeking to learn more and share what I’ve learned with the ever-growing community in Las Vegas and beyond. I am passionate about and love doing women’s work and am currently facilitating monthly local women’s circles and workshops.
As a woman of many hats, and with a heart of service, whom comes from a family of chefs and cooks, I love cooking and preparing delicious and healthy vegetarian and vegan meals for friends, retreats, teacher trainings, and special events.
In my free time, I love to travel, explore, and experience new cultures and foods. I especially love the Ocean and almost all activities water-related. I enjoy dancing like no one’s watching, singing devotional music, hiking, biking, fitness, deep cultural and spiritual experiences and of course, the practice and study of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
As a teacher, I am both excited and honored to humbly hold a space where our community can practice and grow together- A space of Truth and Integrity, that supports expansion, encourages self-growth, and creates healing, not only for Las Vegas, but for All.
