Mandeep Kaur - LIght of Heart and Mind
Melanie/Mandeep began her journey as a teacher in 2000. She was led to practice Yoga due to a chronic, painful low back compression combined with an intense early onset of Menopause. After just one yoga class she was amazed at how much better she felt, balanced and stronger.
Her Dharmic path as a teacher has been remarkable and vastly rewarding in many aspects and layers of being a Human, Woman, Wife, Mother, Sister and Daughter. Her Soul's purpose in this life has been clearly shown to her and her teaching's convey this life lesson of "Awakening to your Soul's Purpose".
Her classes are fun, elevating, intelligent with a modern projection of these ancient timeless teachings.
Mandeep now has a strong Meditation practice due tp her steady practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
She has earned 700 hours plus of Yoga, Meditation, and Sound Healing certifications and is registered with the International Kundalini Teacher's Association, Yoga Alliance as well as the International Yoga Therapists Association.

She offers private sessions in Numerology and Sound Healing with the Himalayan Healing Bowls and the Gong. Sessions are typically one hour, but can go longer if necessary. The Numerology session offers a 40 day meditation prescription and guidance. Sound Healings are done with the bowl placement around the body and on top of the body as well.

Thank you and Sat Nam
While it is likely that you will not remember who I am, I wanted to take a minute out of the day to send you an appreciation for the passion you bring to the world. A few years ago I lived in Cedar City and shortly before I moved away I learned about your studio and would go whenever I had time off from working in the wilderness. I fell in love with Yoga while participating in classes at your studio. I always left feeling happier, healthier, and re-energized, (which is often very much needed after spending 8 days in the desert leading groups of at-risk youth and adults).
After leaving Utah, my husband and I moved to Vermont. I was sure that I would easily be able to continue my practice in the lovely green mountain state with all of the Yoga that it has to offer. However, after trying many studios in my area I have yet to find one that compares to the experience I had when I practiced in Cedar.
Since I think about your studio, your instructors, and the wonderful experience you have created and provided folks often. I figured it was about time I shared my appreciation!
