What is Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training ?

You have attended some Kundalini Yoga classes/workshops and are inspired to experience more.  The next step is to participate in a Level 1 Teacher Training.

Becoming and Being a Teacher plays a central role in the practise of Kundalini Yoga as it will awaken your hidden resources and talents.   In other words, little by little it will raise your Kundalini.

There are three levels of training :

  • Level 1 – Foundation
  • Level 2 – Transformation
  • Level 3 – Realisation

All our Teacher Trainings are recognised internationally and are certified by KRI (Kundalini Research Institute) – the governing body for Teachers of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.

Teacher Training Level 1
– Foundation

Level 1 is a 220 hour course (180 classroom hours).

Attendance at a training doesn’t necessarily mean that you want to be a Teacher.  This can evolve in its own time.

 

Common reasons why people attend our trainings :
  • To improve your health
  • To find the courage to make significant changes in your life
  • You feel good when you practise so you want to do more
  • You want to become a yoga Teacher

The six principle components in a Level 1 program :

  • Anatomy & Physiology : Essentials of Yogic and Western Anatomy
  • Humanology and Philosophy : The Lifestyle of a Kundalini Yoga Teacher
