Harbhajan Singh (August 26, 1929 - October 6, 2004), also known as Yogi Bhajan, was a yogi, spiritual teacher, and entrepreneur who introduced Kundalini Yoga to the United States. He was the spiritual director of the 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy) Foundation, with over 300 centres in 35 countries.
Kundalini Yoga is the Yoga of Consciousness, is thousands of years old and is an original and powerful form of yoga, passed down orally through the ages from master to student.
Yogi Bhajan came to the United States in 1969 and founded the 3HO Foundation to further his missionary work. In 1971 he completed his first teacher's training and the Kundalini Research Institute was formed in 1971 and went on to formalize the certification and training of teachers internationally.
Traveling extensively in the seventies and eighties, Yogi Bhajan crusaded tirelessly to educate, uplift, and enlighten everyone he met. Students around the wold liked to experience elevated states of awareness, and they also deeply wanted to feel they were contributing to a world of peace and social justice. Yogi Bhajan offered them all these things with vigorous yoga, and embracing holistic vision, and optimistic spirit of sublime destiny.
His credo: "It's not the life that matters, it's the courage that you bring to it".
True to his earliest commitment, "I've not come to gather students, but to train teachers," the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association and KRI (Kundalini Research Institute) now holds teacher-training courses throughout the world.
Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training is a unique and experiential yoga certification program which will allow you to explore your own potential, challenge yourself and help to live more radiantly every day.
Yogi Bhajan left his body on the 6th of October 2004. Over 35 years he taught about 8000 times, in which he gave thousands of different Kriyas (exercise sets) and meditations, touching on every aspect of human life imaginable. Through his initiative, the 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organisation) was founded, which keeps and spreads his teachings.
