Level One Online Training Policy

The Curriculum Committee has taken your feedback and modified this policy proposal. The final version, the one that you will be voting on, is now posted in Sutra. You can also read it directly (with links to multiple languages) here.  Please comment there — but keep in mind that we won’t be modifying the wording at this time.  In a few weeks, we will open up an online vote either “yes” or “no” to adopt this as our policy for now.

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, February 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.

Trainer Store Migration to the KRI Store

Please note that we are transitioning the Trainer Discount Store to the Source Store. Within three months, the Trainer Discount Store will be completely deactivated and all orders of Teacher Training Material will take place in the Source Store under the category Teacher Training Material” on the vertical menu on your left. You’ll only see the Teacher Training materials once you’re logged in to KRI’s The Source Store with your KRI website account email address, the one that you used to renew your ATA Trainer license. Here is a Step-By-Step Procedure to help you place your order in The Source Store. 

If you want to provide authorization for any of your program administrators or managers, please use this form. If you have any questions, please contact your regional administrator.
