Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, arrived in the United States in 1969 with a stated purpose: “I have come to create Teachers, not to gather disciples.” For over 30 years, he traveled internationally teaching Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness. In 1969 Yogi Bhajan founded 3HO — the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization, based on his first principle “Happiness is your birthright.” Thousands of KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teachers have been trained through The Aquarian Teacher Program, instituted by Yogi Bhajan. 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 Certification program is open both to yoga students ready to become teachers and those who wish to immerse themselves in the science of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
This is the KRI Level One Aquarian Teacher training program in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®. In completing this Level One program, you will become certified to be an Instructor, and learn the fundamental principles and practices of Kundalini Yoga. You will develop the skills to instruct students in Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations as taught by Yogi Bhajan. You will practice teaching Kundalini Yoga in a practicum setting, participate in early morning Sadhanas (spiritual practice), and experience the powerful transformational energy of White Tantric Yoga. This is a 220 hour course, which includes 200 hours of classroom instruction in a well-defined curriculum which includes:
- Kundalini Yoga Postures, Kriyas & Meditation
- Role of a Kundalini Yoga Teacher

Lead trainer, Sat Santokh, a spiritual leader and social activist, who has been on the cutting edge of our collective evolution in consciousness for over fifty years. A former manager of the Grateful Dead and a peace activist since the late 50’s, he founded the War Resisters League West, Meeting of the Ways, Rainforest Products, and Creating Our Future. He has been teaching Kundalini Yoga, and leading Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training for over 40 years, and has trained many well-known Kundalini Yoga teachers. His current focus is the critical relationship between inner peace and world peace, and the evolution of human consciousness. He has mostly been traveling the world leading Kundalini Yoga workshops that heal the inner wounds that prevent us from allowing ourselves full access to life’s abundance. He is an excellent guide to bring you to a profound understanding of the essence of Kundalini Yoga.
Prabhu Nam Kaur (Professional Trainer): When we practice Kundalini Yoga, in weekly classes, daily practice and/or morning sadhana, there is a progression that flows through the asanas and breathing that prepares us for the chanting and kirtan, which then takes us into the sacred space in which we connect with our higher selves. Prabhu Nam Kaur has cultivated this sacred space through her 35 plus year of practicing and teaching Kundalini Yoga, and through the singing and teaching of mantra and shabad.
