Course Description

Kundalini Yoga prepares each one of us to be teachers who act with undaunted spirit, exalted caliber and character, and the vitality to cross every crisis. We must cultivate the core skill for this coming age-recognizing stress in our self and others and the ability to transform it. This course is our chance to look closely at how we react to, cope with and master stress in our lives.

We may even come to love the times of challenge and crisis as we connect to the spiritual warrior in us that is a leader, a healer and a teacher. Finally, we will connect with other teachers and identify how we can prepare our communities to excel under the transformations and upheavals of global change as we transition into the Aquarian Age. All of us must be experts in the conversation of stress and leaders in helping others find their inner vitality, mental endurance and spiritual reality. Each Transformation course is guided by a core affirmation that represents our consciousness and achievement. 

Change is a stress requiring our capacity to respond and adapt. Vitality is the capacity of our nervous and glandular system to adapt. Our caliber allows us to guide others through life’s challenges. In this course, cultivate the core skill for this coming age – the ability to recognize stress in ourselves and others and develop the tools to transform it and balance it with conscious relaxation.

The KRI Level One Aquarian Teacher Training Program is a 220-hour professional certification program in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan ®. An interactive course in the theory, practice, and basic skills of a Kundalini Yoga instructor, it includes 180 hours of classroom instruction and 40 hours of independent study: service projects, a 40-day meditation, and White Tantric Yoga. Graduates of Level One earn the title of KRI Certified Instructor of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® and fulfill the Yoga Alliance RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) 200-hour requirement.

Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, arrived in the USA in 1969 with a mission: “I have come to create teachers, not to gather students.” Since then his teaching of Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness, took him around the world to share, teach, and uplift humanity. He founded 3HO-the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization, which is based on his first principle, “Happiness is your birthright.” Through the Aquarian Teacher Program, Yogi Bhajan has trained thousands of KRI Certified 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.

The Aquarian Teacher Program is the KRI Level 1 Certification program in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
