Mehtab Benton

Mehtab began his yoga career in 1973 in San Rafael California where he used the techniques of Kundalini Yoga in the ashram’s drug rehabilitation program. As a Kundalini Yoga Lead teacher trainer, he has trained hundreds of Kundalini Yoga teachers in Level 1 and Level 2 courses across the United States. Mehtab received the Kundalini Yoga Teacher of the Year Award as well as the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers’ Association award for “Building Yoga Communities.” 

Read More About Mehtab

Mehtab is the originator and author of Gong Yoga, the first book and course on using the gong with the practices of yoga and meditation. His book, Teaching Gong Yoga, has been used in yoga teacher training classes by teachers of all disciplines, and his book Gong Therapy has provided the foundation for teaching sound healers, healing professionals, and yoga teachers how to use the gong therapeutically. 

Mehtab is a life-long astrologer who discovered the spiritual potency of using Indian or Vedic Astrology to guide people in finding their dharma and life purpose. He is a mentor in the American College of Vedic Astrology and has trained yoga students and teachers in the basics of using astrology with their spiritual journey. His book Astrology Yoga is the first and most comprehensive book that integrates the practice of Yoga with the wisdom of Jyotish (Vedic Astrology).

Vedic Astrology

Vedic astrology is the original astrology from ancient India used by the Yogis to guide students on their spiritual path and to help fulfill their destiny in the outer world. It is different from Western astrology, although the planets and signs are the same, and it often gives more accurate results for those on a path of yoga and spirituality. It is especially helpful in anticipating and working with the cosmic cycles of change that occur regularly throughout our lives. When combined with the techniques of yoga and meditation, Vedic astrology reveals our destiny and how we can realize it.

Read More About Astrology Readings

Your personal astrology reading by Mehtab is based on your birth date, time, and location, as well as specific questions or areas of life you would like to explore.

Your first appointment is a comprehensive life reading that examines your basic nature, your gifts and challenges as well as the karmic issues you are working on in this lifetime. All areas of life are considered, including relationships, career, health and best spiritual or yogic practices. In addition, you will learn about the current cycle of transformation you are experiencing and how to plan for and anticipate the coming changes in your life.

Follow-up readings, if desired, can be done around your birthday or when you are considering major life changes.


Readings may be scheduled for 60 or 90 minutes and the correct birth time is needed for the most accurate reading.

How to Find Your Birth Time

The 60 minute reading is excellent for:

  • An introduction to your birth chart
  • Answering specific questions
  • Follow-up appointments & yearly updates

A 90 minute reading is recommended for:

  • Discussing several areas of your life in depth
  • Exploring another person’s birth chart as well as your own chart
  • Guidance on yoga practices and/or gemstone prescriptions

You may record the reading, take notes, or simply listen.
