    Instructors
    Sotantar has practiced and studied yoga, meditation and healing since his childhood in Spain. The Patanjali Sutras, the Hermes Kybalion and the words of Carlos Castaneda became important influences in his life.

    By his early twenties he moved to the United States where he continued his study in yoga and meditation. Later he found his connection with the Planet Gongs and he devoted himself to learning the ways of the Gong and Kundalini Yoga.

    He was privileged to meet and receive teachings from the Master of Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Bhajan, by whom he received his spiritual name to meditate on his life path and destiny – Sotantar – meaning beyond the boundaries of time and space and one who lives for the light.

    Sotantar’s Kundalini yoga classes are suitable for all levels.

    Although the postures and practices are suitable for everybody, many of them are practiced with strong breathing known as ‘breath of fire. So one can choose to work more strongly if you feel so inclined.

    Sotantar is now a widely recognized Gong Master and Kundalini Yoga teacher in his home base of Los Angeles and Orange County, as well as in Europe.

    He has worked with and had the opportunity to learn from world-renowned Gong Master Don Conreaux. He is also a Reiki Master Teacher, Sound Therapist and Hypnotherapist.

    In addition to his regular classes, Sotantar brings his knowledge and energy of the Planet Gongs to workshops and retreats around the globe.

    He visits the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre each year as he considers Ireland his second home. The Burren is a special place of magical beauty, and some of the workshops take place outdoors in Nature.

    Sotantar’s commitment to bringing awareness, peace, balance and joy to the universal community led him to create the Planet Gong Peace Project Meditation which takes place monthly. The Planet Gongs’ sacred sound creates a space for all the participants to experience joy and their true selves. The Gong’s vibrations carry throughout the world the intentions to expand global awareness, raising the frequency of the planet to a higher level of peace. The Project has simultaneous meditations occurring in various places in the world: North America, South America, Europe and growing.

    His passion is teaching Kundalini Yoga and bringing the healing and transforming sounds of the Gong to the world. He enjoys giving Gong meditations and healing concerts to celebrate the peace, love and joy which is our natural state. He has recorded a series of CDs including the sacred sounds of the Planet Gongs and Tibetan Singing Bowls for meditation, awareness, and healing.
