Teacher Training - Level 1

Through Teaching we discover our gifts. 
The different facets of the Self, asleep or disconnected, prevent us from realizing our full potential. 
Sharing what we are learning, however humble, is a profound unifying experience. For sharing, teaching, is awakening and connecting the different facets of our lives, in order to unify and merge them, which ultimately allows us to emanate the Teachings naturally and effortlessly, like a luminous crystal. 
For many students, training is a stage in the discovery of their destiny.
It's a human adventure!

Teacher training has been profoundly transformative and very ecstatic. Full of fun and laughter. I felt touched by the finger of the Divine!'.


Foundations and Awakening - Level 1

This stage includes the fundamental understanding and experience that the self, at its core, is always one with the One (Ek Ong Kar); the understanding of the essential parts and character of a human being; and the fundamental principles and practices of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
By completing this step, you become a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor.

Training with Ik Saran Dhian

Some of our Trainings consist of three residential weeks.
Others are a residential week and sessions of 2, 3, 4 or 5 days.
All our Courses include at least one residential week, an immersion, Ashram style, alongside your peers and under the guidance of the School's Directors.
Many people experience a deep awakening, especially during these intensive weeks.

A typical day

To start the day, we meet at 5am for our morning practice.
It consists of reading a sacred text, Kriya (exercises), relaxation and 62 minutes of sung meditation.
In an Ik Saran Dhian Training, the music is usually "live".
After breakfast and lunch, there are Training modules and sometimes a shorter session after dinner.
In addition, there are breaks during the day as well as physical yoga practices.
The Teaching is based on experience and self-initiation. 
Everyone is encouraged to share experiences and ask questions.
