International Kundalini Yoga Therapy Professional Training Overview

 

There are 13 in-person segments and 7 online segments in the 1,000 hour International Kundalini Yoga Therapy Professional Training. The training is fully integrated and the in-person segments are in a sequential order.

 

The first 3 in-person segments are focused on shifting from being a Kundalini Yoga teacher to becoming a Kundalini Yoga Therapist. They are primarily yoga-focused and take the trainee deep into the consciousness of Kundalini Yoga as Therapy. They are extremely useful for Kundalini Yoga teachers who are in the integrative healing arts. The subsequent in-person segments are assessment- and application-focused and take the trainee deep into clinical practice of Kundalini Yoga as therapy.

Any Kundalini Yoga teacher can take the following 5 in-person segments in any order without enrolling in, or committing to, the full training. After that, trainees must apply to and be accepted into the full program so that they may benefit from supervision and the integrated process of developing skills, sensitivity, experience and consciousness over the 3 year, 1,000 hour training.

 

All the online segments are open to any Kundalini Yoga teacher whether they enroll in the full training or not.  For online course information visit http://www.grdcenter.org/courses.php .

Courses are posted on our website 3-5 months before start date. For all course locations and to register, visit http://www.grdcenter.org/courses.php.
