About The Kundalini Research Institute

Dear Teachers, Trainers, Students, and Friends:

In an effort to respond to the ongoing conversation about Teacher Training development and Level Three in particular, KRI invites you to participate in an upcoming series of dialogues that will provide you with background and information about KRI and the Teacher Training Program, a history of how our organization developed, a look at what is happening now, the challenges we face, and an opportunity for you to share your ideas and opinions, and explore ways for you to continue your participation.

To initiate this process, Guru Raj Kaur, one of our most experienced Trainers, has written a brief personal history, which we hope will both inspire and inform you. (Please download and read the attachment.) She and Hari Charn Kaur of KRI will open the dialogue on April 23rd with an overview of Teacher Training and a history of its development. The schedule of topics and dialogue sessions are listed below. We realize the times are inconvenient for some members of our global community. We are planning to create other opportunities for dialogue in Europe, Asia and Latin America. We hope you can join us! If not, the calls are being recorded and KRI can provide you with the link.

Established on February 1, 1972 by Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D., Master of Kundalini Yoga, the Kundalini Research Institute is entrusted with The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan. KRI, a non-profit corporation, safeguards the purity, integrity, and accuracy of the Teachings of Yogi Bhajan by:

  • Developing 3 levels of International Yoga Teacher Certification

  • Preserving the teachings legacy for the future online Library of the Teachings

  • Awarding the KRI Seal of Approval to products that successfully meet the standards of KRI Review

  • Providing services and resources for Kundalini  Yoga students and teachers via online services and upgraded Yogi Bhajan Products

  • Supporting and promoting scientific research on Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and providing research resources for Kundalini Yoga teachers (KRI policy does not allow institutional indirect costs for grants and awards).

Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness, was brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan in 1968. Yogi Bhajan taught that, through the practice of Kundalini Yoga and meditation, your glandular and nervous systems are stimulated, and your capacity for creative potential is heightened. You gain inner vitality to compensate for the adverse effects of stress so you can excel in life.



Kundalini yoga classes are a dynamic blend of postures, pranayam, mantra, music and meditation, which teach you the art of relaxation, self-healing and elevation. Balancing body and mind enables you to experience the clarity and beauty of your soul. No previous experience in yoga is required for you to achieve results with your very first class.


Men of great knowledge actually found out about the chakras –their workings, their petals, their sounds, their infinity, their co-relationship, their powers.  They found that the life of a human is totally based on these chakras. This total science gave birth to Kundalini Yoga.
