Research conference and our upcoming research symposium, and how KRI can be an engine of growth for all teachers and trainers.

First Ever Kundalini Yoga Research Symposium

This coming February, KRI is very proud to be organizing the first ever Symposium on Kundalini Yoga: Scientific Research and Applications for Health and Therapy.  Because you trainers are the core of KRI, we are offering this event to you for FREE.  You can register with the coupon “RESYM” for this online event Feb 10th.  This global online event brings together leading experts in the field of Kundalini Yoga to explore the latest developments in Kundalini Yoga and its potential applications for healing, well-being and therapy. The symposium will feature a range of presentations and discussions, covering topics such as the neuroscience of Kundalini Yoga, the use of Kundalini Yoga in a variety of populations and settings, including addiction treatment, trauma recovery, teaching in schools, among others.  Read more detail about the program and all the presenters here.

Upcoming Melas – Level 3

We are now receiving Applications for Level 3! At this time, you can apply if you are interested in starting your Level 3 journey in either one of these two cohorts, which will have Gateway Melas in November 2023.

• Global English Online: November 17-19

• China in person: November 3-5

For those already in Level 3, registration is also open for both upcoming Melas in November.  The KRI Level Three program is a personal journey to Self-Realization. It completes the Aquarian Teacher Training by cultivating the True Identity as teachers through meditative experience, spiritual maturity and serving others.

In-Person Trainer Forum at Winter Solstice!

Sorry that we forgot to include the winter solstice in-person trainer forum in the last trainer update.  Winter Solstice will be at a new campsite in Lake Wales, FL, and our trainer gathering will be on-site beginning the day before (so the trainer meeting is the afternoon of Dec 15th and the morning of Dec 16th).  Read more and register here.

Intensive Day of Meditation Sign-off forms

Especially now that White Tantric Yoga (WTY) courses are happening again, there has been some confusion about signing off on attendance at the required day of intensive group meditation.  We have added a Sign-off section for the Intensive day of Meditation requirement on the L1 Certification Requirement Form.  There is also a separate sign-off form, participation in a day of intensive group kundalini yoga meditation, if needed.  The Certification Requirement form is one of the required documents on the L1 teacher certification packet, which needs to be sent to KRI after the completion of the program, along with the Signed Code of Ethics and the Registration and Release form.  See the L1 Contract admin checklist for more details.
