A Special Opportunity – Experience The First Years Modules

Whether or not you know you want to be professionally trained as a yoga therapist, here’s your opportunity to take the first year’s courses as individual modules and see.  Shanti Shanti Kaur Khalsa, PhD, has been working in depth with diverse health conditions since 1986 under the direction of Yogi Bhajan. She now shares this legacy and priceless experience in the only purely Kundalini Yoga based Yoga Therapy training in the world.  Read her full bio below! This training gives Kundalini Yoga teachers the foundation needed to begin to develop those skills and to deepen and expand the application of yogic philosophy, technique and habits of conscious living toward health recovery.

A Career In Health Care and Medicine

When you complete the 1000 hour training, you will be positioned to enter a career in health care as part of Behavioral or Lifestyle Medicine. You will have developed the ability and expertise to teach Kundalini Yoga to people with most health conditions, safely and effectively. You will have the opportunity to work with hospitals and clinics that have an interest in integrating Kundalini Yoga into their health care approach. And you will be able to work one-on-one with clients who would like to include the practice of Kundalini Yoga as part of their health recovery.  The Guru Ram Das Center for Medicine and Humanology is rolling out this training in two USA sites: Los Angeles, and Millis. The first “year” of in-person modules will take place over two years in Millis so there is plenty of time to try things out.  Once you apply for the 1000 hour program you will be credited by the Guru Ram Das Center for the courses taken.
