Join us for this powerful Kundalini Yoga experience – perfect for all levels of experience.
Lighthouse Yoga Center’s unique Kundalini Yoga Immersion Program offers you insight into this powerful practice, guiding you on the mat and helping you craft a home practice or learn to incorporate elements of Kundalini Yoga into your other yoga teachings.
Are you looking to deepen your Kundalini Yoga practice?
Join Lighthouse Yoga Center’s 40-hour Kundalini Yoga Immersion Program. This course will meet once a month in 2019, from 1-5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Sadhana will start at 5 pm each Sunday and we require attendance at a minimum of 3 Sadhanas to successfully complete the course.
We offer this immersion as a way for Kundalini Yoga students and teachers to deepen their practice and hone their skills. Hatha Yoga teachers who want to start to add some elements of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation into their practice and teaching will also find it useful. The goal of the program is to develop an understanding of the basic principles of Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan. With this knowledge, you will be able to maintain a steady home practice and begin to share this technology with others. Please note that this program does not replace the full 220-hour KRI Level One Teacher Certification Program, but will provide an excellent foundation for anyone who would like to enter a future teacher training program.
