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.

Updates on the 2 proposals being considered.


Level One Requirement for an Intensive Meditation Day

The feedback from the recent trainer meetings, and on Sutra, was pretty overwhelming (though of course not unanimous!) in its support for our current policy.  Therefore, the curriculum committee is withdrawing the proposal to change the requirement. The discussions also pointed out that the current policy is not clearly worded.  So the curriculum committee worked on this newly worded policy document.  This is NOT a change to our policy, simply an improvement in how it’s communicated.  Please refer to this new wording, and let us know if you have any questions.  The updated L1 certification requirements form is available as well.


Level Three is thriving!

2023 had great results. This year we successfully ran 3 Melas with new cohorts joining in each of them. There were also some people certifying and some amazing Seva Projects, which you can see on our Seva webpage.  Overall, we had 54 returning participants and 37 new Level 3 students. Next year’s dates are set, and we will be accepting applications as of January 2024, please visit our website: https://kundaliniresearchinstitute.org/en/level-three-journey/level-three-journey/

Please join us and share with your students!  For more information, contact Inderjot Kaur 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. Looking forward to meeting with you Online and In Person!

In-Person Trainer Forum at Winter Solstice!

We look forward to being together in Florida for our next in person trainer forum at Winter Solstice! It 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 December 15th and the morning of December 16th). Read more and register here.


Best Practices for Online Training

From the discussions at the recent regional trainer meetings, a request was made for KRI to provide additional support for trainers in how to improve at delivering online trainings.  We will take this on as a project.  If you have tips and best practices from your experimentation, please share them with the rest of the ATA via your peer-to-peer PEDAGOGY TOOLS sharing webpages here.


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.
