Goals of Professional Training Kundalini Yoga Therapy
The professional training is designed as a basic training for yoga therapists. The goal is to equip people with the necessary means to use Kundalini Yoga therapeutically. The approach of the training is based on the knowledge that all individuals carry within themselves the resources and means to become healthy and creative human beings. Through attentiveness and respect, yoga therapy creates the necessary conditions for the healing and growth of body, mind and soul.
We consider therapeutic Kundalini Yoga to be both, a preventative and a therapeutic measure. The training will focus as much on psychological as on physical aspects of healing. We teach our trainees to evaluate the specific needs of each client and to design a yoga therapy program to meet those needs. Another component of the training is the development of skills for the therapeutic work with groups who share a common topic or diagnosis.
Kundaliniyoga has a rich treasure chest of knowledge and healing methods – we will pass these on as practical tools and explore their therapeutic efficacy. A central focus is to penetrate the knowledge-base of kriyas and meditation to convey a more in-depth understanding of their subtle effects. Yoga therapy is an ideal answer to the complex challenges of our time.
The training will enable the trainees to work with yoga therapeutically, in individual and / or groups settings. All yoga teachers will benefit from a deepening of their yogic knowledge and their consultation skills, allowing for more differentiated and knowledgeable teaching.
Module 1 – Consultation expertise and therapeutic communication
Consultation and evaluation settings present complex processes that cannot be satisfactorily resolved using established formulaic approaches. They require flexible, process-orientated communication skills, which will be presented and practiced in this module. This module includes: basic therapeutic skills, conversational skills, therapeutic stance, handling difficult conversational situations, limitations and opportunities of yoga therapy.
Module 2 – Awaking the body’s potential
In Yoga, healing means re-establishing, strengthening and harmonizing the connection of body, mind and soul. The focus of this module is to understand this connection and to facilitate and support the healing process through the use of Kundalini Yoga. By this means, clients with specific concerns or with physical limitations can be treated with higher levels of competence and with more options. In addition, this module will build on and deepen existing knowledge about asana alignment and the major body systems with a particular focus on how to employ these in a practical and relevant way.
Module 3 – Mental health and solution focused strategies
This part of the training will focus on how to successfully cope with and overcome times of crises and transition. In this context, Kundalini Yoga’s specific knowledge of pranayama and meditation comes to the foreground. We will address the following topics: Moving from fear and depression to trust and balance; burn-out and stress management; addiction: from searching to finding; relaxation and meditation: experiencing and applying our limitless potential.

“The 3HO Yoga Therapy Training was a wonderful and enriching experience that got me to dive deep in the healing tools that Kundalini Yoga has to offer. I am an MD and was sceptical at first if my needs would get met, but the teachers had so much wisdom to offer, I got so rewarded! Go gift yourself and your clients with this learning journey!”
/ Dr. Theresa Schweizer
On my experiences of the teachings in Kundalini Yoga therapy (KYT)
“It was a far spread experience in Yoga and its use especially in an individual teaching and working with clients. So first thing, was to get clear about our role in being a therapist where you offer KYT techniques to the client . It is very respectful and touching ‘work’ when you feel like a companion and a guide for the client as you fill this role with trust in yourself, the client and your common process. Therefore we learnt precious tools about how to approach the client, how to use the res ources in the client’s situation and also to keep an inner distance as you are also in a process of learning, guiding and trusting. We covered various fields within three modules, e.g. ‘Therapeutic attitude’, ‘Competence in counselling & relationship’,’The body systems’ (esp. the muscular- skeletal part), ‘Nutrition’, ‘Immunology ‘. We applied the techniques of Kundalini Yoga in all various aspects such as the positions of the kriyas, the mantra singing and meditations. We build up and strengthened the relationship with the self sensory system and, which was very helpful, the inner discipline of doing our own sadhana and relying on the tools we learnt in the courses and in our learning groups for KYT. So we entered the vast fields of diseases where we can apply KYT in our western world, for example in physical impairments (muscular weakness, back pain), imbalances in our hormone systems (the connection of our ‘glands’ with the central nervous system) and especially the diseases of the Aquarian Age as depressive disorders, addictions and managing of (life) crisis. As a whole, there was a vast range of personal learning as we all brought in our intimate ‘patterns’ and using KYT techniques on ourselves. This was one of the most striking experiences. We grew together as a group of Kundalini teachers and therapists feeling strongly thankful for our competent and patient teachers in the courses and for the Golden chain. It was an excellent time for personal growth in gaining self-confidence, deepening our own Kundalini Yoga experiences and passing them on to the clients in confidence and devotion.”
