Becoming a Kundalini
Are you interested in teaching Kundalini Yoga (as
originally taught by Yogi Bhajan) or learning more
about this sacred technology? It is a beautiful
practice that will surely enrich your life and
develop fitness of mind, body and spirit.
Be aware during your search for a teacher training
about who your trainers are, their qualifications
and legitimacy, and what association you will be
certified with once you graduate. Too many students
have been misinformed and have had to re-take their
training with legitimate teachers once they
discovered they were not properly trained or
certified after completing their training.
Currently, KRI (Kundalini Research Institute) is the
official international training organization that
promotes the teachings of Yogi Bhajan and oversees
teacher training programs in 52 countries,
graduating over 3000 new Kundalini Yoga teachers
annually. The Level One KRI Aquarian Teacher
Training Program consists of a 220 hour program (180
hours in class; 40 home practice) with a
comprehensive well-organized course textbook called
“The Aquarian Teacher” and a companion text called
“The Master’s Touch”. Graduates of Level One earn
the title of KRI Certified Instructor of Kundalini
Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®, are registered with
the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers
Association (IKYTA) and fulfill the Yoga Alliance
RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) 200-hour requirement.
The primary regulatory body for Kundalini Yoga
teachers is IKYTA, not Yoga Alliance.
