The Amrit Nam Sarovar Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 is a program for personal growth and teacher certification. This course is the opportunity to commit to positive change and to connect with others willing to do the same. The course will give you a foundation for a solid yoga practice which is your base for being a teacher - for yourself and for others. You will gain the knowledge and self-confidence to make a difference in yourself and the world around you.
The training is open to everyone. You will be given all you need to practice and teach Kundalini Yoga: 200 hours of teaching, a personal- or group interview with Karta Singh, 40 day yoga sets and meditations to develop your own spiritual discipline, home assignments to reinforce your knowledge and a team of qualified trainers & staff that will help guide you through the process.
Karta Singh is a Master of Kundalini Yoga. The teachings, which he received directly from Yogi Bhajan, have instilled in him a deep sense of peace, joy and abundance that he is committed to pass on to future generations. So that people can transform their destiny towards a more happy, healthy and holy life.
As a pioneer, he initiated teacher training courses in France, Belgium, England, Russia, Austria and Switzerland. Amrit Nam Sarovar, the school he founded, today has more than a 1.000 associated teachers. He also helped develop the curriculum of level 1 & 2 teacher trainings and was invited to teach with Yogi Bhajan at the Master’s Touch training courses in Assisi and Blois.
While Karta Singh is ultimately responsible for the training, and teaches extensively in the summer week in France, the weekends in Holland will be taught by teachers from Amrit Nam Sarovar Nederland. The Dutch Amrit Nam Sarovar teacher team consists of Guru Deva Kaur and Gurprakash Singh. They are IKYTA/KRI certified teachers with many years of yoga practice and teaching experience. Guru Deva Kaur and Gurprakash Singh both live in Amsterdam. A certified Kundalini Yoga teacher and business yoga coach, Guru Deva teaches weekly classes, hosts workshops and offers individual coaching sessions. Gurprakash Singh, a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, momentarily teaches at Golden Link in Amsterdam. Both Guru Deva and Gurprakash also teach in France at the Outreach program, an International Level 1 course offered by the Amrit Nam Sarovar School.
During the training we will apply the teachings to everything we do. The base of our work is a daily early-morning practice (Sadhana), a yogic diet and seva, which is selfless service for the good of all. Together we will create an environment, that is both challenging and uplifting. This is a rare opportunity to go deep into the experience. So that we can broaden the understanding of who we are.
Each day we will also gather in study groups: to share experiences and work on special themes. Each group will be assigned a mentor that will help facilitate the process. The mentor will also support group members with their personal study and assignments throughout the whole training.
We meet 5 times in The Netherlands, in Almere and Amsterdam. In addition, we will join an international gathering of more than 150 ANS School Level 1 students for a week of living community and intense practice. This week will be hosted at Domaine Le Martinet in the French Alps, the home of Amrit Nam International.
