Kundalini Yoga, Level 1 Teacher Training ~ Portland, Oregon
Join our semi-immersion training for a deep and transformative
May 30 – June 7, 2020 | September 12 – 20, 2020 | January 14 -17, 2021
Why an immersion vs. a weekend program?
Through our experience of teaching trainings for over 30 years, we believe the immersion format gives students the deepest transformation. When working with the kriyas and meditations day in and day out for 9 days you can create a space to go deep into the subconscious to heal and clear old wounds and habits. The same can happen in a weekend but the longer you go the deeper you travel. We believe that some of the best and clearest teachers come from our immersion trainings. We invite you to step away from your day to day life and create a new sense of living. You will feel the love and support of us and your fellow students as you take this powerful journey towards awakening to the teacher within.
To withdraw from the course before it begins your request must be received in writing. Requests to withdraw received by April 30th, 2020 are eligible for a refund, minus a non-refundable $800.00 USD processing fee. After May 1st, 2020 there will be no refunds.
The course will be held at a beautiful space in SE Portland.
