Mehtab began his studies with Yogi Bhajan in 1973 in San Rafael California where used the techniques of Kundalini Yoga in the ashram’s drug rehabilitation program and later attended the first yoga teacher training course personally taught by Yogi Bhajan, the Master’s Touch, in the 1990s. He is a KRI Lead Trainer who has trained hundreds of Kundalini Yoga teachers in Level 1 and Level 2 courses across the United States over the last 20 years. He received the Kundalini Yoga Teacher of the Year Award as well as the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers’ Association award for “Building Yoga Communities.”
Mehtab is the originator and author of Gong Yoga, the first book and course on using the gong with the practices of yoga and meditation. His book, Teaching Gong Yoga, has been used in yoga teacher training classes by teachers of all disciplines, and his book Gong Therapy has provided the foundation for teaching sound healers, healing professionals, and yoga teachers how to use the gong therapeutically. His passion is in training students from all backgrounds in how to play the gong, and he has created a video course and an online course (www.gongdharma.com) to instruct students who do not have the opportunity to train with him personally.
Siri Bahadur began his practice of Kundalini Yoga in 1974 and has found the art and science of this style of yoga to be one of constant unfolding discovery. His passion is sharing by teaching, fed by the Kundalini premise of realizing the conscious mindset of the possible human. Breath, movement, and sacred sound are staples in his classes.
