The SSSC Office of Public Affairs and KRI partnered with Dr. Shanti Shanti Kaur and the Guru Ram Das Center to train Kundalini Yoga teachers in a level 1 Teacher Training program in Ukraine on how to conduct trauma-informed classes in an active war zone.
They have prepared five Kundalini Yoga protocols for specific populations. These are for KY teachers in Ukraine to teach to soldiers in Military Rehabilitation hospitals, Special Forces Units, Veterans, Those with Loss of Limb and Traumatic Brain Injuries, and Military Families. There is an upcoming training for Ukrainian Kundalini Yoga Teachers on how to deliver these protocols.
A second teacher training program is underway. Both are the largest and second largest in KRI’s level 1 history worldwide causing us to research what yoga during wartime means.
