July 27th – August 27th, 2013
The Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training is a special immersion for spiritual healing, activation and transformation that is only offered at 7 Centers Yoga Arts. It can be taken by yoga teachers seeking deeper internal practices and by newcomers looking to build a foundation of balance, integration and change.
The practices and trainings are based on the teachings of the two premier pioneers in modern Kundalini Yoga: Swami Satyananda Saraswati of the Bihar School of Yoga in Bihar, India, and Yogi Bhajan of the 3HO Foundation in Espanola, New Mexico. In this unique 30-day immersion program, which includes an ashram style schedule, students will learn the scientific and experiential tools to achieve internal and external harmony as well as practice and learn to teach the ancient Kundalini techniques that promote personal evolution.
This 200-hour Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training can be applied toward a 500-hour certificate from 7 Centers Yoga Arts and Yoga Alliance. Our Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training, when combined with any introductory 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, our Chakra Yoga Intensive (8 days) and our Conflict Resolution Workshop (4 days), will entitle a teacher to the 500-hour certification level.
The course will begin on a Sunday at 1:00 pm with an orientation and personal Ayurvedic assessments. The regular Monday through Friday course schedule begins the following day, as seen here:
4:30am: Kundalini Sadhana
6:30am: Ayurvedic Breakfast
7:15am: Karma Yoga
8:00am: Morning Nature Walk
9:00am: Kundalini Philosophy & 3HO Kundalini Kriya

Weekends will follow a special schedule, with Saturday classes ending at 12:00 noon and Sunday classes ending after morning Sadhana so that students can attend to personal business and integrate the teachings of the week.
*Anatomy classes will be held each Wednesday evening from 5:30pm to 7:30pm and will combine both Western and Eastern approaches to the physical and subtle bodies.

WHAT TO BRING
Sedona weather in July and August is typically monsoon season which means high temperatures and occasional rain, lightening and thunderstorms. As this is the desert, be prepared for hot days, warm nights and everything in between. Bring appropriate yoga and non-yoga (casual) clothing, shoes, hiking gear, a journal, a working alarm clock, and a neti pot (if you have one). Although it is not a requirement, students are encouraged to bring white clothing for the 3HO style yoga practices along with a head cover.
