I think it is for a couple of reasons. 1) It is by far the best way to get a deeper understanding and a deeper experience of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®. 2) It is a very fulfilling way of being useful and of service to other people on the planet so they can be more fulfilled, relaxed and uplifted.
Why is the immersion training in NM special?
It takes place in Yogi Bhajan’s home environment; at the Ashram and adjacent to his ranch. We also have excellent trainers that were trained by Yogi Bhajan and have a special emphasis on the practicum aspect of teaching a class in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.
What if I don’t feel ready to teach?
By the end of the course you will be well prepared to teach and then it is up to you if you do so.
What if I don’t want to become a Sikh? Can I still become a teacher?
Yes, of course, it does not matter what faith you follow as a teacher of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.
What will I learn in Teacher Training that I won’t learn in class?
You will discover, study and learn all the aspects of the yoga, from physical postures, meditation, relaxation, sound current and mantra to chakras, and your light bodies. Moreover, you will begin to learn the how and why it all works to give that amazing experience that you get in class when you practice.
What resources are open to students to help them make the transition to teacher?
The best resource is your participation to a very consciously crafted training that prepares you to teach and to trainers that are expert in their field.
