Level 1 (200-hr) Kundalini Yoga
Teacher Training: Instructor
Dear Prospective Student of Yoga,
‘I will never be the same again,’ is what we often hear from those who have taken Teacher Training in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® – myself included!
My initial motivation to take teacher training was to deepen my personal yoga and meditation practice. This course did that, but it also did so much more. In truth, I had no intention of teaching Kundalini Yoga. I already had an undergraduate degree in music education and had taught public school music for several years. I really thought that my teaching days were over!
It wasn’t long, however, before I found myself informally sharing the techniques I’d learned during Teacher Training not only with my friends and family, but, with the loan officer at our bank and other business associates. I laughed out loud when I realized that I was, in fact, ‘teaching,’ Kundalini Yoga and Meditation after all! Today I own Kundalini Yoga in the Loop (KYL), located in downtown Chicago, Illinois, USA. I teach Kundalini Yoga and Meditation both in the US and internationally. This is certainly quite a different path than the one I initially set out upon!
Whatever draws you to this amazing course, know that the end result will be perfect for you even while it might also be totally different than what you initially expected. Along the way your mental, physical and emotional growth will be enhanced in a supportive and cozy environment. You will learn the tools to not only deepen your own personal practice, but you will also gain the knowledge and self-confidence to uplift yourself and others into a more peaceful, powerful space.
I look forward to our journey together,
— Shakta Kaur
