LEVEL ONE TRAINING

Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training is open to everyone. It is an excellent way to deepen your experience of Kundalini Yoga – even if you do not plan to teach.  When Yogi Bhajan initiated a structured Teacher Training, he stated there would be three levels: Level 1 – Instructor, Level 2 – Practitioner, and Level 3 – Teacher.

There are currently four Teacher Trainings schools offering Level 1 Teacher Training in the UK. All are certified by the Kundalini Research Institute, which is the international certifying body for Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.

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 a minimum of 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.

Level 1 introduces the student to the principles and practices of the self-sensory human, and explores how Kundalini Yoga and yogic lifestyle can harmonize and uplift the human experience and awaken your true potential.

“IF YOU WANT TO LEARN SOMETHING, READ ABOUT IT. IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND SOMETHING, WRITE ABOUT IT. IF YOU WANT TO MASTER SOMETHING, TEACH IT.” —YOGI BHAJAN
