KRI wants to ensure that all practitioners of Kundalini Yoga have a safe and respectful experience, and that all KRI certified Kundalini Yoga teachers in good standing are accountable for acting in alignment with our Code of Ethics.
To accomplish this, KRI works closely with a dedicated office – the Office of Ethics, Professional Standards and Conscious Conflict Resolution (EPS).
This Office has published The 10 Rights of a Kundalini Yoga Student in 20 different languages. We encourage all yoga teachers and studios to make their students aware of this document, so that it is clear and transparent what our Kundalini Yoga teachers can be held accountable for. You can find these 10 Rights, and downloadable/printable versions of it here.
The office of EPS has a 24-hr helpline for people to report ethical complaints against KRI-certified Kundalini Yoga teacher or teacher trainers. That phone number is 1-888-805-4888, and complaints can also be left anonymously there.
You can see a list of Kundalini Yoga teachers who are no longer in good standing due to a serious unresolved ethical complaint here.
Living up to our values of ethical behavior is very important to us, and all complaints are investigated. There is no individual within our community of KRI-certified Kundalini Yoga teachers who is above these same ethical standards, or who is in any way immune from investigation by the Office of EPS.
