KRI Level One Aquarian Teacher Training Program

This teacher training program is for everyone, whether you desire to become a certified teacher or simply wish to deepen your personal Kundalini Yoga experience. The Kundalini Research Institute (KRI) Level One Certification course will give you a lifelong foundation for a successful yoga practice. You will learn the basic principles of Kundalini Yoga that Yogi Bhajan taught since 1969, and experience the practice and its effects first-hand, guided by experienced teacher trainers.

Throughout the training program, you will receive powerful insights about yourself and the means to grow mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually; and this growth will radiate throughout your life, both personally and professionally.

We have been training teachers in New York City since 1971. Those who aspire to become teachers and enroll in our teacher training programs will receive the knowledge, confidence and experience to become well-rounded, competent and capable teachers of Kundalini Yoga. You owe it to yourself to take your Kundalini Yoga practice to the next level.
