What to Expect
Level One Teacher Training in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is a transformative experience, whether you decide to teach or simply use it as an opportunity for personal growth, you will change. Those changes can be a challenge to your family and your community. Don't take it personally; and definitely don't make any big decisions during Teacher Training. Simply allow yourself to dive deeply into your own identity – and above all, Keep Up!
The course is a physical and mental challenge. Do your best to set up your life to support your Teacher Training experience because, once it's over, your Teacher Training experience will definitely support your life!
If you are interested in bringing a KRI Level One Teacher Training in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan™ to your community, please contact Sat Purkh Kaur at email@example.com.
You can miss one weekend or 20 hours (10% of the course) and make them up with homework; any additional time off, you would need to either pay to participate in another training's weekend or pay for a trainer to sit with you and go over the content – basically paying for a private session. You can also work with a peer to have the entire weekend recorded; but there would still be a tutorial fee for going over the material one-on-one with someone with expertise.
If you miss more than 20% of the course (even with make-up work), you are not eligible for certification. To sum up: you can miss one weekend, and make it up with homework; if you miss a second weekend, you can pay to make it up in person with a training/trainer; any absences beyond 20%, you are no longer eligible for certification. Of course, you could complete the course for your own depth and experience and we would welcome that; but if you're interested in being certified, showing up counts!
