Our 2021 Year End Gift to You
Thank you for your support in 2022!
Sat Naam Dear Ones,
In December 2022 our third group of Kundalini Yoga Therapists graduated from a 32-month, 1,120-hour training, and already bring Kundalini Yoga Therapy to those in underserved and marginalized communities.
Our courses remain online, allowing Kundalini Yoga Teachers world-wide to gain new skills and new ways to serve.
And remarkably, 2022 marked 36 years of Kundalini Yoga Therapy.
We could not have come this far without you. Your Tax-Deductible Donation Makes A World of Difference!
To express our gratitude, our 2022 Year End Gift to you features Pauri Kriya, a meditation practice that is not published anywhere else.
Pauri Kriya was the first meditation from the tradition of Kundalini Yoga to have a body of research developed around it. It has been the studied protocol for 3 different doctoral dissertations, including the research I did on strengthening self-efficacy in people who are HIV positive.
Self-efficacy can be defined as the belief that what you do makes a difference and has been shown to benefit behavior change, quality of social interactions, and immune function. Strong self-efficacy is essential in making and maintaining social support and health behavior changes and is a significant co-factor in recovering from a serious or chronic health condition.
The belief that what you do makes a difference is not the same as holding an intention. In fact, this belief makes your intention stronger.
Self-efficacy beliefs can be enhanced and research shows that the practice of Pauri Kriya is an effective method. For this reason, Pauri Kriya is included in every Kundalini Yoga Therapy protocol, no matter what the condition.
And now we share this with you in the video, Research on the Psychology of Health Recovery: Pauri Kriya.
We are filled with excitement for the new year ahead. May good health, joy, and fulfillment bless you and your loved ones in 2023.
With All Gratitude,
Shanti Shanti Kaur
And the Guru Ram Das Center Team
P.S. Even those who are well can benefit from practicing Pauri Kriya. Once you have decided to change a habit of any kind, include Pauri Kriya along with your new behavior and notice how
strengthening self-efficacy helps you make and keep the change you want. I welcome your comments on how this works for you and your students. Reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have students with chronic illness or a life-threatening condition?
Learn how to serve them through Kundalini Yoga and meditation. Level 1 Teacher Training prepares you to teach to healthy people, but you need a different set of skills and a different way of thinking in order to teach Kundalini Yoga therapeutically.

After the first Kundalini Yoga for Living With Diabetes class my blood glucose went from 120 down to 86! The amazing thing is, each night it has stayed in the 85-87 range. After the first class I showed this result. I am impressed with what a little yoga and meditation can do.
Thank you for lifting us, inspiring us, coaching and mentoring us as teachers to people with health conditions. Bringing Kundalini Yoga into health care has become my personal mission. Thank you for awakening this in me.
Your encouragement and skill in working with me set my healing in motion with effortless grace. Thank you.
