about us

our beginnings

We are in our 11th year! The Collective was created by a group of Kundalini Yoga teachers who trained together with Karam Kriya School led by Shiv Charan Singh. We began with free classes in Clissold Park in north London during the summer of 2012. They quickly got quite busy and we moved into our first venue The Castle Climbing Centre in 2013.  In 2014 we became a company with the aim of formalising our intentions and expanding our Collective over time.

The owners and co-founders are us –  Kary Stewart (Preetam) and Ratan Veer Singh aka RV. We honour and thank all the teachers that have been part of the Collective over time including co-founders Gaby (Sat Anand), Madschri, Alison, Jayne, and Taras and also Dima, Ana, Emma D,  Eva, Emma B, Este, Charlotte, April (Lakshmi), Anna (Amrit Jiwan), Andres, Amanda, Sarawati Adi and Tegh Shabh – so far!

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.

Kundalini Yoga

The practise encompasses and draws from all yogic systems and techniques and is a potent and effective system of self-transformation and personal development.

Kundalini Yoga stimulates individual growth through systematic techniques that strengthen the nervous system and balance the glandular system for increased stability and vitality.

Meditation improves mental concentration, sharpens awareness and gives the direct experience of consciousness.

We teach Kundalini Yoga as certified by the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI).

format of a class

The classes are typically 90 minutes long and flow in a set sequence although the focus of the practice varies each time, so rarely are two classes ever the same.

We begin by tuning in and follow this with a short warm-up. This leads into a set of exercises known as a kriya. There are hundreds of kriyas and each one tends to focus on different aspects of mind, body and spirit. All kriyas work on balancing the whole body system through breathing techniques, mantra and physical exercises or asanas.

Following the Kriya, the class is led into a deep relaxation to assimilate the changes of the exercises throughout the body. A meditation then follows and the class then ends by closing with  the seed mantra Sat Nam.

SAT NAM
Sat means Truth—the reality of one’s existence. Nam means name or identity. 
Sat Nam affirms that Truth is our Identity.
It connects us to our highest Self.
