About KRI Level 2 Programs:
This program is based on the comprehensive science of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. The Aquarian Teacher program is a journey of your development as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher.
There are three levels of certification:
- KRI Level 1: Foundations and Awakening – Instructor
- KRI Level 2: Transformation – Practitioner
- KRI Level 3: Realization – Teacher
The KRI Level 2 Module is Transformational and is comprised of five modules required for KRI International Level 2 Certification. The five modules are:
- 1. Conscious Communication
- 2. Mind & Meditation
- 3. Authentic Relationships
- 4. LifeCycles & LifeStyles
- 5. Vitality & Stress
The modules can be studied in any order. It is recommended to leave approximately 4-6 months in between modules in order to integrate the experience into your life and teaching. After successfully completing all 5 modules a student may apply to receive Level 2 certification. KRI requires this process to take a minimum of two years.
Each Level 2 module has 48 contact hours with a certified Level 2 Trainer. After the completion of the contact classroom hours, each student participates in the post-course integration process. This includes the practice of a 90-day meditation, conference call classes (or in person meetings if possible) with the Trainer and an exam and other homework assignments.
The post course work is vital to the integration of the material and experience offered during the course. The transformative nature of Level 2 is in the depth of experience during the course, and in integrating the professional development skills learned, living the values embodied, and participating in the building and service in our communities.
