Professional Training – A Yogic Path In Health Care

Become a Certified Kundalini Yoga Therapist

Upcoming Remote Course

Sept 10-13, 2020 Foundations of Kundalini Yoga Therapy: Principles and Practice

More and more students come to a Kundalini Yoga class wanting to address a health concern. Yet Level 1 Teacher Training prepares us to teach Kundalini Yoga to healthy people, not to those with a health condition. To address the needs of students with health conditions, in a group class, requires a different set of skills and a new way of thinking. This 4 day intensive training teaches you this method. You’ll be introduced to the skills, language and pacing you need to teach Kundalini Yoga to people with health conditions safely and effectively.

Foundations of Kundalini Yoga Therapy: Principles and Practices 

International Kundalini Yoga Therapy Professional Training

Open to all Kundalini Yoga Teachers

Teaching Kundalini Yoga to people with health conditions

The GRDC Foundations of Kundalini Yoga Therapy: Principles and Practices will be held remotely on September 10-13, from 12-4 pm led by Hari Kirin Khalsa, M.D. We will also be offering the Ad Such Meditation Day 3, Sat. Sept 12, 1:30 pm-5:30 pm as an additional event open to the public. The 2.5 hour meditation is cushioned on either end with warmups, instruction, guided deep relaxation and emerge with talking to each other.

Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Teacher training prepares us to teach people who are healthy. A separate set of skills is required to teach people with health conditions. This training gives Kundalini Yoga teachers the foundation we need 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.

We will learn how to identify and meet the student at their starting point, mobilize inner resources, understand and work with the process of change. We will explore the unique structure of a therapeutic Kundalini Yoga class and the layering model of teaching Kundalini Yoga to people with health conditions. Fifteen principles of teaching Kundalini Yoga as a therapeutic intervention are detailed. The psychology of health recovery and the role of family and friends are addressed.

Experience the differences between a yoga teacher, yogic healer, and a yoga therapist and the specific language of each.

Special attention is given to the personal development to engender awareness, strength and subtlety of the sensory system, intuition, compassion, deep listening, sensitivity, humility, endurance, radiance and grace.

A six week Kundalini Yoga curriculum for a mixed conditions group class are included.

Foundations of Kundalini Yoga Therapy: Principles and Practices is the 1st of 14 in-person segments of the 1,000 hour International Kundalini Yoga Therapy Professional Training and is open to Kundalini Yoga Therapists in training and Kundalini Yoga teachers. Those Kundalini Yoga teachers who are in the integrative healing arts find this training especially useful.
