THE AQUARIAN TEACHER™ KRI Level 2 Certification program in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®

Building on the foundation of Level 1, Level 2 Teacher Training is about personal transformation and deepening the core qualities, character and consciousness of a Kundalini Yoga teacher. Communicating with another is a reflection of your communication with your own self. This course provides you with the necessary tools and experience to create a more authentic and powerful projection of yourself and your relationship with others. Discover your personal biorhythm of communication to enrich your life with resonant harmony. Learn the secrets of effective public speaking from a practical and authentic place in your being – your soul.

Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, arrived in the United States in 1969 with a stated purpose: “I have come to create Teachers, not to gather disciples.” For over 30 years, he traveled internationally teaching Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness. Through The Aquarian Teacher™ program, Yogi Bhajan has trained thousands of KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teachers. In 1994, the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association, (IKYTA), was formed to make available these priceless teachings through networks of Kundalini Yoga teachers worldwide.


In this level, the Instructor cultivates the yogic capacities of intuition, neutrality and self-assessment within the five mirrors of consciousness:

Conscious Communication – Uplift and penetrate through the power of the word.

Mind and Meditation – Conquer the mind and conquer the world.

Authentic Relationships – Unfold your true identity in the matrix of conscious relationship.

LifeCycles and LifeStyles – Discover mystery and mastery through every cycle of life. 

Vitality and Stress – Cultivate the caliber to guide yourself and others through life’s challenges.


Ideally applicants will hold a KRI Level 1 Certificate in Kundalini Yoga. Experienced Kundalini Yoga students or yoga teachers of other traditions may apply for the course and will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion.

Only KRI certified Level 1 Instructors may be certified as KRI Level Two Practitioners.

This course is transformative in its nature, and participants should be grounded in a recognizable perception of reality. We require applicants to notify us of any pre-existing health issues and reserve the right to defer further instruction at any time, and indefinitely, in the interests of your own well-being.
