MANDEEP

Sat Nam! 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.  This geographical shift created a training ground deep experience for my return to Las Vegas in March 2020 just in time for the great pandemic shut down of Las Vegas!  The Kollective was ignited...

After serving the good people of Cedar City and surrounding areas in the UTAH community for 15 years, my return to Las Vegas was seamlessly manifested and intuitively guided to secure a Well Being space in the heart of the downtown Historic Arts District.  Interestingly enough with the cross street being “Utah”.  No coincidences, all Divine Providence Flow.  

My mission continues to offer authentic teachings of Yoga as a genuine Spiritual Discipline and lifestyle guide. The technology of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation that was delivered to humanity via Yogi Bhajan is my personal practice and what I teach.  The Science of Angles, Triangles and Awareness continues to elevate and strengthen my consciousness and supports my personal evolution and mastery of being a Spiritual Teacher.  

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 am a sound healer and utilize the quantum frequency of the Gongs and 7 Sacred Metal Bowls in my private one on one sessions as well as in all classes that I teach.  Nature’s Cosmic cycles and rhythms are an intrinsic guide in the creation of the Soundscapes offered at the Kollective.    I offer Teacher’s Training and continuing Education Workshops that are credentialed through the Kundalini Kollective College of Applied Yogic Science which is recognized by Yoga Alliance. 

 

 

Meet our TEACHERS

RAM RAVI

Ram Ravi has been practicing some form of yoga for most of her adult life. Hatha yoga saved her life and her sanity while she was living in Greece many years ago and it was there that she began her conscious journey into physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance. Years later while living in Tucson, AZ she was serendipitously guided to Kundalini Yoga and immediately connected with the kriyas, mantras and meditations and the beautiful community of like-minded souls searching for life’s meaning. She became a certified Level l instructor in 2016.

Teaching has also been an important part of Ram Ravi’s professional life and while she considers herself a life-long learner, she has also taught in a variety of settings. Whether teaching children or adults, she enjoys sharing her love of learning. She is a certified Rubenfeld Synergist and Reiki Master and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience about the body-mind-spirit connection to her classes, her own yoga practice and her life.

Ram Ravi brings her passion and love of the amazing science and life-changing technology of Kundalini Yoga to share with students of all ages and levels of yoga experience and ability. 

SANGEETA KIRTI

A lifelong dancer and writer, Sangeeta is also a certified RYT vinyasa yoga teacher. When she discovered Kundalini at the Kollective, all the puzzle pieces were finally assembled. “This is it! This is exactly what I’m doing for the rest of my life!” Along her journey to self-discovery, she has had several career incarnations as a journalist, video editor and TV producer in Toronto and Los Angeles.

A healer by Human Design, kundalini has opened a portal for Sangeeta to discover her abilities to heal herself. Now, she is honored to be of service to share the wisdom of how others can nurture their own minds and bodies with a kundalini practice too. As a mom of three plus a dachshund, she is driven to make the world better by promoting mindfulness and inspiring individuals to grow in meaningful ways.

ANAHATA SANGEETA

Anahata is an artist, musician, and ceremonialist who is grateful to call Las Vegas home for the last 2.5 years. She is also a reiki and sound healing practitioner and a transformational coach for those seeking guidance with ancestral healing. A strong component of her work includes healing the relationship one has with their inner child. She believes that our deepest fulfilment in the self-love journey begins when we can meet ourselves through unconditionally accepting and caring for the little one within each one of us.  

Anahata discovered the miraculous effects of sound therapy while on her own healing journey and has since then worked with sound to powerfully manifest her dreams, embody her truth, improve emotional resilience, and awaken massive amounts of creativity in her life. She continues to be amazed by how transformative sound is and loves to share the science and art of it with others. In her style of sound healing, Vickie uses intentionally directed and arranged sounds and vibrations to invoke altered states of consciousness and promote the rebalancing of mind, body, and spirit.           

Her earth mission is to help create a world where humans feel empowered to lead with love and be guided by the intuitive direction of the heart. Anahata’s many passions all intersect at holding loving space for people to come home to themselves. She is excited to bring a joyful, heart-centered approach to sharing the technology of Kundalini Yoga and looks forward to further deepening her love and appreciation for sound, music, and vibration through this practice.     

When she’s not at TKK, you can probably find Anahata singing with her guitar or somewhere outdoors finding inspiration from mother nature. 

KARINA RAMIREZ

Karina began her exploration of yoga in 2006 after attending her first hot-vinyasa class with a dear friend in Las Vegas, NV. She was immediately hooked to the health benefits, mental balance and vitality that yoga offered.

After 10 years of practice and a deep desire to attend training and to one day teach, Karina completed her first RYT Vinyasa Yoga training. In 2020, after experiencing first-hand the damaging neurological effects of Covid-19, her desire to heal and deepen her own meditation practice led her to Kundalini Yoga at the Kollective and to completing her Level 1 training in this Sacred Yogic Science.

Having served in the hospitality Industry in Las Vegas for more than 15 years and being a busy mom to a beautiful growing boy, taking care of others comes naturally, but the importance of self-care has become a crucial priority in her life as she now seeks to cultivate awareness, self-love, balance and healing in people of all ages and levels. 

Dhruv singh

As a Las Vegas native, Dhruv studied Kinesiology at UNLV and began personal fitness training in his early 20s. While training he was introduced to yoga asana and found a deep appreciation for ashtanga yoga. By his mid 20s he began searching for deeper meaning in life which led him to the work of Paramahansa Yogananda and the Self-Realization Fellowship.
 
Dhruv was granted access to their core teachings and studied with them for two and half years.Around that time he was initiated in Deeksha, a form of energy transfer, through the Oneness University and was participating in healing circles.He had felt a deep calling to visit India and to have a living teacher guide his path. In his early 30s that call was answered. He met his teacher Yogi Amandeep Singh serendipitously in a vegan restaurant in Chinatown Las Vegas. There was an instant connection and the yogi invited him to participate in a 21 day teacher training in the Himalayas.
 
That journey into the Himalayas began a four year series of trips around the world working closely with Yogi Amandeep Singh. Dhruv would share the sciences and knowledge that he had been so generously given whenever asked and as the world locked down he taught regularly out of his home. Through the guidance of his teacher he was introduced to Mandeep and now teaches at her beautiful facility in downtown Las Vegas. 

ONG KAR

Ong Kar’s spiritual path began approximately 15 years ago while living in San Francisco Bay Area.  He immersed himself into Buddhist studies while building his career at one of the fastest growing software companies in Silicon Valley (NYSE: VMW).  

Ong Kar’s personal and professoinal passion focuses on optimizing human performance.  He is the Founder & CEO of a digital health analytics company applying the latest science in diet, nutrition, exericse, sleep, and mind-body awareness to health optimization.

Ben Trihub

When Ben first got into Yoga, he noticed a lot of the classes here in the West were geared more toward a physical workout. While he believes a healthy body is very important, he was looking for a more meditative practice where he could slow down, breathe, connect, and go within. Eventually he found this (and so much more) in Kundalini Yoga.

The word Yoga means “to unite." Yoga and Meditation is a way to connect or unite with our higher selves, the light within, the Universe, the Infinite, the Divine. In a typical Kundalini class we use many tools including poses, movement, breath work, meditation, mantras, relaxation, and more. This powerful practice helps you free yourself, clear and release that which doesn’t serve you in order to make more room for love and light. Clearing these blocks so the energy is flowing properly allows us to get out of the way of our most powerful healer, ourselves.

Ben doesn't know of anyone who’s walked in to a Yoga class thinking, “OK, how can I make myself a worse person." That’s one of the things he loves about being a part of a Yoga class. It’s such a positive environment, everyone is there trying to become the best version of themselves. As a teacher, he feels it has been a profound privilege and joy just to hold space for this. In Ben's class you’re encouraged to come as you are. Whether you’re having the best day of your life, or if you’re in your darkest chapter, whether it’s your first Yoga class, or if you’ve been practicing all your life, everyone is welcome. We create a safe place where no one is watching or judging you. It’s not about being the most flexible person in the room, it’s about doing your best and allowing yourself the time and space to tune in, surrender to your truth, and get in the flow.

In addition to being a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher (RYT200), he's also a musician and enjoy sharing live mantra based music, and Gong sound healing.

Cassandra is a playful, nomadic yogini with an eclectic offering inspired by ten years of immersion in ancient healing traditions. She moved to Vegas to pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy and is deeply passionate about the mind-body-spirit connection.

Most recently, she was living in Thailand studying Thai massage and Reiki. Her thirst for knowledge is insatiable. She is tantric in her approach to life, on and off the mat, and embraces all things as interconnected and sacred.
