Aquarian Teacher Training LEVEL ONE — Instructor (Foundations)

The Vision of our KRI Aquarian Teacher Training Programs is to produce teachers of Kundalini Yoga who demonstrate awareness in consciousness, excellence in teaching skills, and serve as an example of depth and maturity of character. To achieve this, Yogi Bhajan, the Master of Kundalini Yoga, directed three stages of training with its own tasks, criteria and disciplines. Yoga West currently provides the First, Second and Third stages of training and supports them with a highly qualified and renowned training team. This program is offered in Vancouver and Vancouver Island locations.

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.
— Yogi Bhajan
