What is the Regional Academy Administrator and how can I contact one that can assist me?

CLICK HERE to find out more about the ATA Regional Administrators.

In order to better support our community of trainers, KRI is moving forward with the implementation of locally based administrators of the Aquarian Trainer Academy.

Distributing the administration of the ATA is a project initiated by trainers at the July 2020 Trainer Summit and we are glad to take this important step towards this achievement.

The Regional Academy Administrators will be assisting trainers in all aspects of the Academy from Intern, Associate, Professional, Lead, Mentor, for Level 1, Level 2 as well as 21 Stages of meditation programs.

All documents, information and details about the roles in each trainer pathway can be found in the respective pages on Aquarian Trainer Academy MENU on the trainer support website.


How do I qualify as a 21 Stages of Meditation Trainer?

Once you are a Level 1 Professional Trainer you can qualify as a 21 Stages of Meditation Trainer by doing the following.

  • Participate in and complete all 6 days of a 21 Stages of Meditation program
  • Read & study the 21 Stages Trainer Orientation Packet
  • Fill out and submit to KRI the 21 Stages Trainer application
  • Approved as a 21 Stage of Meditation Professional Trainer
  • When you are approved as a Level 1 Lead Trainer you will also be approved as a Lead 21 Stages Trainer.
  • For details and documents go to the Aquarian Trainer Academy page under 21 Stages Trainer

Why doesn’t my IKYTA membership and or Yoga Alliance membership show in my information on my Portal?

You need to add your own IKYTA membership in your Profile on your Trainer Portal. Click on your photo on top right after you sign in and then click on “View Profile”.

Then select Yoga Associations. Click on “Add Affiliation” and add your IKYTA membership for the year. The insertion of your IKYTA ID is not required but if you have it then insert it. If you pay monthly, do not add an affiliation monthly, please! Just add the information yearly. If you are a Yoga Alliance member, this information can be added here as well. You will need to “Add Affiliation” for these Yoga Associations each year. You cannot edit earlier ones. This way a record of your membership over the years is retained.

I am not sure of my Trainer Portal password, what can I do?

If you are unsure of your Trainer Portal password, go to the Trainer Portal: trainerportal.kriteachings.org  and add your username, which is your email. The Academy Administrator cannot tell you what your password is, but if you click on “Forgot Password” it will allow you to reset your password. Since the portal is directly linked to the Library of Teachings you will be resetting that password as well. Your new password will be emailed to you.

What is a licensing year? How do I relicense?

All levels/roles of the Academy renew their Trainer License yearly with KRI by completing the Trainer Agreement and paying the relicensing fee. Interns complete the Agreement but do not pay the fee. Each May, usually in the first week, an email reminder will go out to all members of the Academy. There is also a colored banner across each member’s Portal reminding him or her to relicense. The licensing year starts July 1st and ends June 30th the following year. A late fee will be applied after September 1st.

If I qualify as a Level 2 Professional Trainer for all 5 modules what happens when I become a Level 1 Lead Trainer?

Any Level 2 module you qualified for as a Level 1 Professional you will still be qualified for as a Level 1 Lead with the addition of being able to contract that module with KRI.

So if you qualified as a Level 2 Trainer for all 5 modules as a Level 1 Professional, you will be immediately qualified as a Level 2 Lead at the time you become a Level 1 Lead.

How do I apply to become a Level 2 Trainer?

Go to the Aquarian Trainer Academy page on the KRI website. Look for the Level Two Trainer section.

First read the L2-Trainer-Orientation where you will find step by step instructions about how to submit your application and start to qualify.

When can I start to qualify as a Level 2 Trainer?

As soon as you qualify as a Level 1 Professional Trainer you may begin the process of qualifying as a Level 2 Trainer.

Can I use the NEW Level 1 Competency Evaluation Form instead of the one that is part of the application?

As you may know, there is a New Competency Evaluation Form available and we do encourage you to use the new one because you evaluate yourself by proficiency for that level or role. The competencies are the same it is just the method of evaluation that has improved.

If you use the new form make sure to include your mentor’s responses and attach it to your application either in the same location as your IDPs or where the Units of Study-Content Credit Form is attached. Then email the Academy Administrator so the Competency Form in your application can be waived.

Please note that The applications on the Trainer Portal have not yet been updated.

If I have a new email address and have changed my primary email to the new one will I still be able to sign in to my Trainer Portal?

Even If you have a new email address and have changed my primary email, the old email will still be your “username” for signing into your portal.

The username will not change to the new email and you still need to insert the old email as the username to be able to enter your portal. The only problem would be if you forgot your “password” because if you clicked on “Forgot Password” the new password would be sent to your old email.
