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 Teachers Association (IKYTA) was formed to spread these teachings through the united efforts of Kundalini Yoga teachers worldwide.>
