Answer the call to become a leader in the Aquarian Age

Our first ever teacher training will take place at Sat Nam Yoga Chicago over 6 weekends, starting October 11th and ending March 15th.
Discover Your True Self - Your Sat Nam
Teacher training is about so much more than becoming a teacher. It’s about becoming yourself. It brings out the qualities of leadership, and serves the larger commitment to cultivate environments and communities of peace and harmony. It will bring out your authentic radiance, so that whatever podium you teach on in life your presence will be one that reaches people in this age.
Transformation awaits you in this process. Your highest truth naturally expresses itself when you concentrate on developing the elegant and clear consciousness of a teacher.
Align with Your Destiny Path
This is a process of unlocking your potential, so that you yourself have the capacity and caliber to deliver your destiny. Pick up new tools to create a sustainable holistic lifestyle. Develop the capacity to share your greatness, your kindness and compassion with the world. Do it all in the container of a vibrant and supportive community.
Start your journey here. Now is the time.

Our Teacher Yogi Bhajan
Yogi Bhajan (1929- 2004), Master of Kundalini Yoga and Mahan Tantric (Master of White Tantric Yoga), arrived in the United States in 1969 with one purpose:
“I have come to create teachers, not to gather disciples.”
After his death in 2004, that purpose lives on not only through his Radiant Body but also through the Kundalini Research Institute’s Aquarian Teacher International Teacher Training.
For more than 30 years he traveled internationally teaching Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness. In 1969, he founded 3HO, the Healthy Happy Holy Organization, based on his first principle, “Happiness is your birthright.”
In 1971, he founded the Kundalini Research Institute. Through the years, Yogi Bhajan trained thousands of KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teachers and Trainers who now serve on every continent around the Globe.
