The Collective was created by a group of Kundalini Yoga teachers who trained together with the same school – Karam Kriya. We began with free classes in Clissold Park in north London during the summer of 2012 and have since progressed to popular regular classes and workshops at various centres. In 2014 we became a company with the aim of formalising our intentions and expanding our Collective over time. The founding members are Kary and Martin, both directors, and Madschri. We recently welcomed Emma Down who became the first new teacher to join us since the formation of the co-operative.
Our aim is to deliver classes and events that are both accessible and affordable to all. If you cannot come for lack of funds please write to us.
Kary Stewart – Director Founder & Teacher Member
When a student is called into action on the mat it encourages a deeper self awareness; ultimately the aim is to understand I Am Enough. Through Kundalini Yoga – the yoga of self initiation I aim to encourage love and acceptance of all that you are, and consequently a loving connection to others.
“I am interested to call souls to gather… to discover again and again the immeasurable threshold where our differences and common ground meet; where we each find the space which is ours and the presence to be.” Shiv Charan Singh
Martin Haas – Director Founder & Teacher Member
I have been practicing Kundalini Yoga since 2008 and teaching since 2012. My aim is to guide the students towards a calm and focused mind, a knowledge of the self and a rejuvenated body. I believe that in order to claim residency in our soul we need to first make our busy mind a servant, and also maintain our body so it can carry us to our destiny.
“Your mind is your servant, your body is your vehicle and your soul is your residence” Yogi Bhajan
Madschri – Founder & Teacher Member
I lead my classes with joy and spiritual devotion and emphasize correct posture and breathing. I have a deep insight into the minute details of the body’s mechanisms and believe that human beings mirror the Cosmos the same way the Cosmos mirrors humans. I therefore also use chanting and sound particularly during meditations to tune in with the Universal vibration we all are. I will be away immersing himself in Karma Yoga at various ashrams in India and Europe until spring 2015.
Emma Down – Teacher Member
An avid Seeker of the a Truth – I extensively explore the mechanics of the body and mind techniques and through these disciplines experience release of the Spirit. A perpetually active individual I co-ordinate the UK STOTT Pilates Training Centre, and have long been a passionate advocator of the Central YMCA Movement and its Global Mission. I instigated the hippest bike shop in town and I am in the throws of creating a new clothing line Goldstepper. In Kundalini Yoga a faith in authentic expression was ignited ans the newly found ‘path of the King’inspired delight that there was such an effective technique available to free the spirit and inspire universal Peace. The journey deepens each and every day & never fails to deliver…
