Wanting to Qualify as a Level 2 Trainer?

KRI is looking to make sure our training courses serve the ATA by offering opportunities, especially if you have limited access to participating in Level 2 trainings.

  • If you would like to qualify as a Level 2 trainer (module by module) by participating on a KRI training team, or
  • If you are already a Level 2 lead and are interested in leading a KRI program,

Please email: level2@kriteachings.org


Vital Source access issue

KRI has heard of a few trainers being locked out of their VitalSource accounts (for access to the digital versions of the Level One and Level Two teacher training manuals) for “suspicious activity.” 

If this happens to you, you will have to contact VitalSource directly to regain access.  We aren’t 100% sure what is causing it, but it may be attempts to print the entire book. 


Compassionate Reconciliation Update

This important process is still ongoing, and KRI is participating.  They are sending out updates every 2 weeks, and you can sign up on their website to regularly receive these. 

Here is their latest update, with some important announcements.


White Tantric Courses are starting up again

Workshops are currently scheduled in Phoenix – March 12 and Mexico City – May 24.

You can check out their website for details www.whitetantricyoga.com.


SSSC Job opening

The SSSC is currently seeking to hire a Meeting & Project Manager. This is a full-time, remote position.

COVID safety

KRI wants all of you, and your students to remain healthy and safe. Back in 2020 we compiled some Kundalini Yoga tips for you and your students, which you can access again in English here. See below for translated versions.

We also urge you to follow your local COVID health laws and guidelines when running your teacher trainings.

We hope more and more of us can hold safe in-person trainings again in 2022!

Decision making principles

In this link, you can see the results of our recent poll about decision-making principles. The results show that all Values are important (An average above four). However, seven of the principles need more discussion; because they received more than 2 “I can not live with this principle,” or more than 4 “I can not live” + “I dislike.” Those 7 Principles are in Orange in the Document.

KRI is committed to listening to all voices, and we are creating an opportunity for discussion – especially for those of you who disagree with some suggested principles.

If you are one of those who have concerns or strongly disagree with any principle(s), please write your reasons to us (hck@kriteachings.org) and/or register for a meeting with the Global Advisory Committee on Feb 9, 2022 10:00 AM Mountain Time

Once we finalize those principles, we will focus on how to use them for decision-making. Thank you to you all who are contributing to this process.


Updates about the relationship between KRI and the Siri Singh Sahib Corporation (SSSC)

As you hopefully know, a small committee has been meeting to discuss the concerns voiced by the ATA community about the relationship between KRI and our “parent” corporation, the Siri Singh Sahib Corp.  Please see this update for more information on this relationship, including the news that all Professional and Lead trainers will be automatically able to vote in the upcoming SSSC board elections (with interns and associates able to apply to be able to vote).


Reminder – nominate someone as a potential KRI 2022 Outstanding Achievement Award recipient. 

If you know of anyone (trainer or not) who has served the promulgation of Kundalini Yoga, please nominate them at the bottom of this webpage.   KRI will bring the nominations to the ATA to vote as to who the 2022 recipient(s) will be!


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

We’re calling for new members of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee to join us to steer tasks and projects oriented to making KRI a more inclusive community. We hope to bring a fresh perspective to the global community that we already are, and we are open to receive creative proposals, bringing together trainers and from all our participating communities. Please write to Atma Chanan at atmachanankaur@gmail.com if you’re interested and/or if you have ideas that might serve this committee. Thanks! We appreciate your input.
