Do You Love Kundalini Yoga?

The KRI Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training programs are for everyone, whether you would like to become a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher or simply wish to deepen your personal experience of Kundalini Yoga.  The course will give you a lifelong foundation for a successful yoga practice. Those who desire to become teachers will be given the knowledge and experience to become well-rounded, competent, confident teachers of Kundalini Yoga.

In essence, we are all teachers. We each have something unique to share and an instinct to uplift each other, whether we teach formally or informally.  This course is the opportunity to commit to positive change and to connect with others willing to do the same. As a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, you will be trained according to the sacred tradition passed on by Yogi Bhajan to carry the legacy of Kundalini Yoga into the future.

“If you want to learn something, read about it.
If you want to understand it, write about it.
If you want to master it, teach it.”
—Yogi Bhajan

 

Who Is Yogi Bhajan?

Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, arrived in the United States in 1969 with a stated purpose: "I have come to create Teachers, not to gather disciples."  For over 30 years, he traveled internationally teaching Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness.  In 1969 Yogi Bhajan founded 3HO—the Happy, Healthy, Holy Organization, based on his first principle "Happiness is your birthright”.  Through the Aquarian Teacher program, Yogi Bhajan has trained thousands of KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teachers.  In 1994, the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association, IKYTA, was formed to further spread these priceless teachings through the united efforts of Kundalini Yoga teachers worldwide.

Level 1 is a 220 hour course, which includes 180 hours of classroom instruction in a well-defined curriculum. Some of the topics include:
