Building Bridges to Enhance Our Service

The Relationship between Kundalini Yoga and Sikh Dharma

The trainers involved in the SSSC-KRI commission have drafted a position paper regarding the relationship between Kundalini Yoga and Sikh Dharma.  This will be emailed to all Summit registrants before the event, and there will also be a breakout discussion group at the Summit later this week.


The Roots and Context of Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan

One of the yoga researchers that KRI has engaged, Rob Zabel, has delivered his report about the history of our practices. This will be emailed to Summit registrants soon, and then sent to all ATA members.  He will be leading a workshop discussing his research findings on Saturday at Track 1 of the Trainer Summit.


KRI’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Goals and Mission

A committee of KRI staff members have come up with this draft of goals and a mission for our diversity, equity and inclusion work.  KRI is open to feedback from all trainers on this, and it will also be a breakout discussion group at the Summit later this week.  Please also see this report on the demographic survey we piloted at the trainer Summit last December.  This is another piece to this Diversity, Equity and Inclusion work, and can also be discussed in the Summit breakout room.


New draft Code of Ethics for Kundalini Yoga teachers

A group of volunteer trainers from the last summit have worked with the Office of EPS and KRI staff to draft a new version of the Code of Ethics for Kundalini Yoga teachers.  KRI’s plan is to gather feedback and iterate on this set of documents in order to bring something to TTEC in October.  Discussion and feedback on this document will begin at the summit later this week.  We will also be working to get this translated into other languages.


New ATA Regional Administrators

KRI is moving forward with the implementation of the new locally based administrators of the Academy to better support our community of trainers.

Dev Atma Kaur (USA and Canada), Preet Kamal Kaur (Asia and Australia), along with Puranjot Kaur (Brazil) and Sarb Jit Kaur (Europe, Africa, Latin America) will be assisting you all as the Regional Aquarian Trainer Academy Administrators in the respective regions. 

All the information and details about the new regional administrations can be found in the ATA regional administration page on the trainer support website.
