“As we are entering the Age of Aquarius, we have to know what life is all about, and we have to become responsible, outspoken, leading teachers of this Age. That's what we have trained for and that's what we have grown into. You cannot live under a camouflage. You have to live openly, honestly, brightly, and forthrightly. Your words should be so strong that they affect every heart; your truth should be so pure that it lifts a person's soul to the heights.”
- Yogi Bhajan
Open yourself up for a more elevated, more empowered and much deeper level of living in your true essence both inside and out. These are just some of the effects of the teacher training.

why residential retreats
Practicing yoga in a natural environment, disconnected from your routine, is an opportunity to feel a deeper connection with yourself, the earth, the surroundings, and the universe. The practice of Kundalini Yoga helps us to recognise and to embrace the patterns, rhythms and cycles of nature. It gives you the possibility to better align your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels and experience a deeper sense of unity.
Joining the residential training Level 1 is a gift that you offer to yourself. It is an opportunity to create space for you to be, and not do. Away from your daily responsibilities, you increase your chance to encounter your deeper self. It is a time to observe, transform and integrate. Your own growth will be supported by a collective living space, with the possibility to serve each other and reconnect to our original nature, to give and to receive.
Being together in nature during the Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training and sharing a collective yogic lifestyle for 22 days is very impactful. It is a source of inspiration and growth. These three residential modules are an immersion in the yogic teachings offering the optimum condition to deepen your practice, embrace positive habits, enter a transformational process and encounter your destiny.
