Randhir (Rainer Perry)
I am also a KRI professional-level teacher trainer and certified Yoga Therapist. I took my teacher training here in 2006 and have been teaching Kundalini ever since. Teacher training and the years of teaching and practicing that followed have kept the promise of Kundalini Yoga and made my life happy, healthy, prosperous, and a wonderland of consciousness – and I wish the same for you.
The technology we teach and study in this Level 1 Course is “Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.” It is the type of yoga that is most commonly taught and practiced in the Western World, and the Level 1 Certification is accepted in most yoga studios and places around the world that offer Kundalini Yoga.
Yogi Bhajan introduced this technology to the West after he arrived in 1968 from India with a primary mission to create teachers. He accepted this mission on his own and left his life and family in India because he understood that Kundalini Yoga provided the experience that people in the West were seeking and not finding – the experience of a higher consciousness and connection. He taught his first classes to students in Canada and the US as an alternative to the prevalent hippie and drug culture at the time, and spread the teachings and built the global Kundalini Yoga community from there.
Please know that this course is not about the personality or worship of Yogi Bhajan. He said again and again: Do not love me, love the teachings. He considered himself a messenger only and his job was to deliver the teachings – whether you practice or not is your own decision. In other words, there is no dogma, and your relationship with Kundalini Yoga is qualified by your personal experience of the teachings alone, not Yogi Bhajan’s directives. He always emphasized that your practice can only be “self-initiated,” and there is only one thing you need to connect to the teachings: your love for the yoga and what it does for you and the world – not fear or force.
Yogi Bhajan left his physical body in 2004, but you may find that you develop an energetic relationship with Yogi Bhajan nevertheless, like a direct channel to his vibration and guidance – as is often the case when we feel a special connection and attraction to a particular evolved human being through a spiritual practice like yoga, meditation, and prayer.
