In March 2020 Nadi Gathering will be held at the Ashram del Bosque de Niebla, in Veracruz, Mexico. Set among 100 hectares of mountains forest, the ashram shares the natural space with rich ecosystem hosting thousands of species of flora and fauna, and two rivers which run through it. During the seven day Gathering we will allow ourselves to fall deep into nature working with Kundalini Yoga and meditation and as always, integrating a variety of diverse and beautiful spiritual practices and indigenous teachings. Local wisdom keepers from the Wixacaria tradition and Conchera and Meshica dancers will guide us through their traditions and ceremonies.
Preetam Kaur and Ratan Veer Singh will be joined by Hector Marcelli founder of the ashram and a renowned spiritual teacher. Hector has been a guiding light for Nadi Gathering in Peru for the last two years. We will also be joined by Ardas Singh from New Mexico who brings the inclusive Aquarian spirit of the Kundalini Yoga tradition.
Every day begins with an early morning sadhana practice with Japji, Kundalini Yoga and meditation

Our focus for the 2020 Nadi Gatherings to be announced
” Life is the dancer, you are the dance” —Yogi Bhajan
Nāḍī (Sanskrit नाडी nāḍī = tube, pipe; Tamili/ˈ/naadi) நாடி = nerve, blood vessel, pulse: pronounced with long vowel sounds and a retroflex ‘d’) is a term for the channels through which, in traditional Indian medicine and spiritual science, the energies of the physical body, the subtle body and the causal body are said to flow. Within this philosophical framework, the nadis are said to connect at special points of intensity called nadi chakras.
Nadi gathering Peru was truly a unique and wonderful experience shared with beautiful souls. Having travelled extensively through South America this was definitely the highlight that will stay with me for ever. The ashram is magical and serene filled tranquility and love. Such an privilege to share space with genuine shaman, learn about their culture and lives and be immersed in to the energies of the sacred sites. A huge thank you to Kary and Martin from The Kundalini Collective for a transformative and uplifting experience – you guys rock.
About Nadi Gathering
Organised by the Kundalini Yoga Collective from London, Nadi Gathering is a journey of activation and of healing. The event is based in the Kundalini Yoga tradition and we also invite and integrate other practices.
We are creators of conscious networks.
We are learners and seekers.
We collaborate with local wisdom keepers and teachers.
We are not tourists, instead we aim to connect with the land, the people and their sacred sites.
Our aim is to exchange and learn from our surroundings and the people we meet.
During the Gathering we make space and time to take it all in and have the inner process as well as immerse ourselves in the beauty of the surroundings.
Also, we welcome co-creation and encourage you to bring something from your personal practice to share with the group.
The first Nadi Gathering was held in February 2017 at Ashram Valle Sagrado deep in the mountains of Peru’s Sacred Valley. In 2019 there will be Nadi Gatherings in March in the forests of the Ashram Del Bosque, Veracruz, Mexico and we will also return to the Ashram Valle Sagrado in Peru in September for the fourth time.
Nadi Gatherings include yoga classes, meditation practices, workshops, sound healing, rituals with the elements, art, music, conscious dances, discussions, activities for giving back to the land and the people, nature walks and hikes, ceremonies in sacred locations, teachings on local traditions, one to one sessions, sharing circles, fun and space for personal time.

We’re sorry but we don’t give refunds. It would be pretty tricky to run an event if we had to make reimbursement. And anyway, we really really want YOU there, so please come and don’t change your mind.
Preetam Kaur aka Kary founded the Kundalini Yoga Collective with a fellow student, starting with donation-based classes in a local park. She is Peruvian by birth and British by upbringing and Nadi Gathering was a vision born out of her own quest to connect with her ancestral land. Strengthened and inspired by the heart opening and deeply transformative experiences with the group during the first and second Nadi Gatherings she hopes to continue to entice others to come to experience the magic too!
Martin Haas is the co-founder of the Collective.
“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.”
