Curriculum

Naad: The Science of Sound and the Soul

Naad Yoga is as old as the first impulse of creation. The universe began with sound — the word — and that same vibration lives within every cell of your body: Ang Sang Wahe Guru. We'll experience the key components of the Naad: listening & expanding the definition of harmony, silence & the still point (shuniya), anaahad or unstruck sound and the song of the soul, the human body as an instrument, and vibration as the key to transformation. 

Moving in Rhythm: Asana in Kundalini Yoga

Discover the basic alignment and rhythmic principles that provide the foundation for Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Moving from the core, tuning in to the innate pulse of each posture, and authentically expressing that posture in your own body are the guiding principles of alignment in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Combining that movement with the Bij Mantra, Sat Naam, along with pranayam, mudra, drishti, these are the leverage points that give you elevation. Let your soul shine!

Projection: Finding Your True Voice

How we speak — the quality and timber of our voice — says a lot about who we are. Does your voice reflect your authentic Self? Do you communicate creatively and effectively? Using both vocal techniques and meditations and kriyas from Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®, come explore your voice as a projection of your own identity. Learn to listen more deeply and sing more freely. Open your pelvis, free your diaphragm, strengthen your Navel Point, clear your Fifth Chakra, and speak your Truth.

Accommodation

At our Baja, Mexico location we offer a few different choices for accommodation.

Deluxe Tents

The majority of yogis that attend our Teacher Training choose to stay in our deluxe tents. These are big tents that most people are able to stand up in. Each tent has a normal twin size bed and mattress, a small set of drawers and a lamp. Bed linens are provided, but we do not provide a bath towel. Comfortable and yet still close to nature. We like to call it luxury camping. For couples we can offer a larger tent with a larger bed. We have 6 bathrooms and 8 showers on our campus.

Yandara Cabana

The Yandara cabana has a full size bed. This cabana does have a private bathroom.
