meet our instructors
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!

She has always been passionate about mental and physical health, but found the beauty and
importance of spiritual health through meditation. This led her to Kundalini Yoga. She is KRI
Certified in Kundalini Yoga and has been teaching (and holds additional certifications in) Yoga
Therapy, Combat, Kickboxing, Centergy, Reiki, and many others. She holds a B.A. in
Psychology from the University of New Mexico. Kavalya Atma is an avid learner and remains
curious about discovering the world in and around her. “I want to open up the doors of Kundalini
Yoga to those that need it most. The tools are life-changing in the most profound ways. To share
that with others is powerful, as it allows them to see their own power and create a positive ripple
and lasting imprint on the world.”
