Specialty courses are not extensions of KRI current Teacher Training Programs. KRI Specialty Course approval does not mean that a graduate of the specialty course can teach Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan ®. Specialty Courses are not a substitution or enhancement for KRI Teacher Training Level 1, 2 or 3.

As the teachings of Yogi Bhajan grow and spread across the world, fantastic training courses that focus on specific needs have been developed by sensitive and talented teachers and trainers. KRI supports these efforts and encourage the diverse application of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.

Here at KRI, it is our job to ensure that the teachings are conveyed with accuracy and portrayed with integrity. We already have a system in place for the approval of Yoga Manuals, books, CDs, DVDs, research articles, website content, on-line products, or translations of existing KRI publication. After a thorough content and technology review of new products, KRI awards the KRI Seal of Approval to all products that faithful portray the teachings of Yogi Bhajan.  When you see the KRI Seal of Approval, you know that you can trust the content.

Now, KRI has expanded our efforts to allow Specialty Courses to earn the KRI Seal of Approval. The KRI Seal of Approval honors those Kundalini Yoga Specialty Courses that successfully meet the standards of KRI review, a sign to students that the teachings of Yogi Bhajan that are included in the course materials have been thoroughly reviewed for accuracy and integrity.
