In loving memory of Sat Santokh Singh and Sada Anand Singh, and getting excited about our upcoming Global Trainers Summit

Negative PR Heads-Up

We are letting you know about a new documentary series that is being shown on March 10th at SXSW among many dozens of other films.  It is called  “Long Time Sun,” and you can read more about it here.  We do not have any further information about the film, but anticipate it may contain some content critical of our teachings and community. 

As we have been clear about over the last several years, KRI stands firmly against abuses of power of any form.  And we are very proud of all the systems we have in place (truly the best in the yoga world) to promote a safe environment for all Kundalini Yoga students.  As you may be aware, KRI’s parent organization, the Siri Singh Sahib Corporation, has heard the concerns from some current and prior community members and created numerous healing initiatives, including an Independent Healing and Reparations Program, to address them.     

We hope that the limited release of this movie won’t have any negative impact on your classes and trainings.  But if there is more support that KRI can give you regarding how to best respond to student questions or concerns, please let us know.  

Finally, if you are approached by media for comment about this film or any other matters, please refer them to Amrit Singh for follow-up and to develop a coordinated response throughout our organizations.

Upcoming Global Trainer Summit — Registration is now Open!

You can register here and check all the information. As always, we will have opportunities for professional development.  Instead of traditional workshop formats, we will have panel discussions around 3 topics — The History of Yoga, Online Training Best Practices, and Digital Marketing.  If you have an interest and skills in one of these three topics, please let us know by emailing Siri Sahib at [email protected].

Planning Ahead for 2024 Trainer Meetings

During 2024, we will have two opportunities to be Globally gathered online as Sangat of ATA Trainers; several opportunities to gather in person in different regions and  local online meetings with trainers of your country only. Through all these meetings, we have the chance to stay connected among Trainers Locally and Globally and bring the Sangat experience alive; keep deepening in our Professional Development as Trainers and have first-hand information and experiences with the KRI Team. Please, save the dates and join us. Remember as well that participating in these meetings at least once every 2 years is part of the requirements to move forward into the Academy.
