How can my Level one students meet all the certification requirements without being able to attend a White Tantric Yoga event?
Participation in a full day of White Tantric Yoga (WTY) is a powerful, transformational experience with one of Yogi Bhajan’s teaching that KRI feels is extremely important for all Level One Instructors to have experienced.
Participation has been a requirement for certification in KRI Level One Teacher Training, with students required to take the WTY only after they began the Level One course
A country-by-country temporary exception has been given, allowing trainings in location with no WTY offered nearby to give their students a different powerful group meditative experience directly with Yogi Bhajan – doing the first 5 rebirthing videos in a group setting.
Some areas have WTY only every other year. For some students, attendance would still require a flight and accommodation expenses on top of the WTY registration fees, and some students find it economically impossible to attend even nearby courses.
Without reducing the importance of WTY as an experience every Kundalini Yoga Instructor needs to have, this policy has been expanded to allow more flexibility for when students participate in this experience.
How can I have a contract that has an unusual format approved?
There have been some inconsistencies in our existing policies, specifically around the # of training days and the total duration of the course. We have in the past approved some Level One programs that had less than 22 training days – which is the new minimum set by this new Level One Formats policy. We also have approved Level One programs that are shorter than 6 months in total duration, with one week, then a 2-month break, another week, then another 2-month break, and a final 1-week module.
This new Level One Formats policy states that 6 months is the minimum duration for all Level One programs. 2. This policy will allow lead trainers to apply to offer Level One courses in different formats (number of days and number of modules) than are currently allowed. This means that people can apply to teach courses with two or even only one module (immersion format).
Can I offer a 100% online Level One teacher training?
Due to the Pandemic of COVID 19 a proposal was discussed in TTEC related to the online L1 courses.
Pre-COVID it was allowed only 10 of the required 200 classroom hours in a Level One program to be done online. As an “emergency measure,” KRI staff began allowing up to 80% of a Level One program to be held online, still requiring a minimum of 40 hours to be in-person. Please read the entire document of the NEW PROPOSED POLICY below.
Please keep in mind that KRI charges a reprinting fee of U$25.00 payable via PayPal: firstname.lastname@example.org or through this link PayPal.Me/KRIpayments.
Once we receive payment and we have all the information provided we can start the process for reprinting, that usually takes 14-21 business days.
