ABOUT YOGI BHAJAN
Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, arrived in the United States in 1969 with a stated purpose: “I have come to create teachers, not to gather disciples.” For over 30 years, he traveled internationally teaching Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness. In 1969 Yogi Bhajan founded 3HO–the Happy,
Healthy, Holy Organization, based on his first principle “Happiness is your birthright.” Through the Aquarian Teacher program, Yogi Bhajan has trained thousands of KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teachers. In 1994, the International Kundalini Yoga Teacher s Association (IKYTA) was formed to spread these priceless teachings through the united efforts of Kundalini Yoga teachers worldwide.

Lead trainer Awtar Kaur Khalsa infuses her classes with practical wisdom about dealing with life’s challenges. Awtar has been living, studying, and teaching in Kundalini Yoga ashrams since 1972. She sat at the feet of Yogi Bhajan with a notebook, timer, and camera, prompting him to remark, “She has perfect notes.” Her students say that her sense of humor and transparency allow them to get real about their own practice and teaching.
