SunChild Teacher Training, certified by AAA International Kundalini Yoga School
October 20-26, 2019
“Children are not naive little things, they are sensitive, sensible, vibratory, eating creatures. They understand the surroundings, they understand what people mean and how mean they are, they have a thermometer in them. As thermometer can measure the temperature so the child can measure the dishonesty of the parents. Child can measure the dishonesty of the surroundings, child can know the child is innocent, innocence have one beauty, through innocence you can know the unknown and so long the child is unknown in the innocence he knows what neurotic those two bodies are which he calls parents. In other words, the word parent is pay the rent. And pay it honestly and pay it gracefully. And let the child know that you are the guardian in Divinity, not guardian in ego”. - Yogi Bhajan
The SunChild Teacher Training is based on the teachings of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and certified by the AAA International Kundalini Yoga School.
There is no Teacher Training to teach children certified by KRI (Kundalini Research Institute). The SunChild as well as the Radiant Child are under the teachings of Kundalini Yoga but not certified by the KRI.
Kundalini Yoga has been given to us by a great master, Yogi Bhajan, and encompasses all aspects of life. It helps children to get to know themselves and their body in a joyful and playful way.
It balances their emotions and helps to reduce anxiety and aggression. It has been proven by research that yoga increases concentration, self-esteem, manages stress and emotion, increases flexibility, balance, coordination and well-being, and introduces kids to healthy lifestyle choices and strong positive habits.
Furthermore it improves social behavior as it makes children more loving, self conscious and calm. Reinforcing their personality and nervous system, Kundalini Yoga prepares children to face challenges and negative aspects of life with a positive approach and with tools that work.

“The teacher training for children is a body and mental healing process.It makes me hug my inner child again and can face my wound child with soft energy. It makes me open a pure space to play yoga with children.”- Beantjot Kaur
“The SunChild teacher training for children was a surprising present for me. It allowed me to touch the inside corners I didn't see for many years. Even as a mother I have learned a lot from teaching my child, I did not realize that how I was driven by the inner child and my hidden self. This course gave me a lot of healings. The classes for children are so creative and so fun,but also a challenge for me. And I learned how to keep neutral by letting go my expectation and how to teach children to love not to love me. Our teacher is full of humor,nwe really enjoyed being children and students in her demo classes.” - Dharamjot Kaur
“The first Teacher Training SunChild hold in Taiwan just came out with its fresh graduates. The course given by Sat Sarbat Kaur is so great! We're so lucky to experience her teaching! Many people who have previously gone through a children yoga Teacher Training could not find the right tools to start teaching and offer a proper class. But now we are equipped with many key knowledge and techniques related to children and we are ready to give classes. All the more important, we have undergone a deep healing process in the space held by Sat Sarbat Kaur. It is amazing beyond description!
Hopefully more people will come and offer assistance to all parents and children. I felt heart ache every time when I heard the sharing on how the inner child can be hurt because of some unconscious words and actions. I really hope everyone can contribute to a brighter future!.” - Shabad Deep Kaur, Organizer of SunChild Teacher Training in Taiwan.
