We educate our communities and Sangats, Ministers, Teachers and Teacher Trainers in how to work together in ethical and conscious ways. EPS teaches our values and standards everywhere we serve.
EPS works to resolve concerns/complaints regarding KRI Kundalini Yoga Teachers and Teacher Trainers, SDI Ministers & the Yogi Bhajan inspired organizations. This office works independently from, but very closely with, KRI, IKYTA, 3HO and SDI. We have been handling complaints since 2001.
