Master of Kundalini Yoga
Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, arrived in the United States in 1969 with a stated purpose: “I have come to create Teachers, not to gather disciples.”
For over 30 years, he traveled internationally teaching Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness. In 1969 Yogi Bhajan founded 3HO - the Happy, Healthy, Holy Organization, based on his first principle “Happiness is your birthright.”
Through The Aquarian Teacher Program, Yogi Bhajan has trained thousands of KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teachers. In 1994, the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association, (IKYTA), was formed to further spread these priceless teachings through the united efforts of Kundalini Yoga teachers worldwide.
Although Yogi Bhajan has left his physical form, the light of his spiritual essence continues to inspire humanity through the teachings of Kundalini yoga as his legacy and gift to the world .
"If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it"

Program Format & Location
The training takes place over two weekends in February and September, and weekly on Tuesdays over a few months. This will allow you learn at a comfortable pace, and allow for more time to assimilate the theory, put it into personal practice and come prepared for the next day of training with your questions and observations.
The program format will be presentations on theory, history, anatomy, and include guided practices, hands-on teaching and partner work. Participants are expected to review the material and practice at home in the time between training days, so that questions and observations can be discussed in the following training day.
This program includes a Chakra Retreat weekend at Sat Dharam Kaur's farm in Owen Sound in September! You will have the opportunity to tent on the property; otherwise, you can rent a location nearby with your peers in the group. We can also arrange to carpool together for this retreat.
