Why join us?

Our work is based on several fundamental elements:

Respect for the Tradition. We consider that without REVERENCE for where we come from there is no possibility of growing on a healthy basis because the reactivity of the subconscious will always take over. We respect the millennial lineage that has brought these teachings to us today. The gratitude of receiving this spiritual influx brings us closer to the wisdom of those great souls who have lived and integrated the teachings through the ages.

Collective intelligence. We are a TEAM of teachers: 3 lead trainers + a team of associate trainers. This allows us to reflect on a wider range of teaching and allows students to not get hung up on the personality of a teacher but rather on the essence of the teachings. This collective intelligence always emerges within the groups thanks to residential situations and participation in morning practices (sadhana) and daily tasks (karma yoga).

Intuition and creativity. The teachings are never presented in the same way twice, they respond to the ENERGY OF THE INSTANT and the burning questions of the students. The kriyas are selected according to the themes that emerge from the group. The content is adapted according to the specific needs that are identified within the team of trainers. The manual is used as a basic resource for the participants but we use it very little as a support to avoid that the understanding is only mental but a lived experience.

Pedagogical follow-up. Our training is HUMAN SIZE: it is possible to interact, ask questions and the teachers are accessible. There is a follow-up in study groups between modules which allows for continuity and integration of the transformation that has taken place during the intensive weeks. An individual interview with a lead trainer takes place at the beginning and end of the training.

ASHRAM type immersion. We privilege PHYSICAL PRESENCE and full weeks for the modules. This allows us to dive much deeper into the transformation of the subconscious mind and to build strong bonds of trust within the group.

Live music. As much as possible we play the music live with the musicians present.

Our Students testify:

Celestial grounding, this is a fair interpretation of what my Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training has been like. For the past 11 months, I’ve experienced the most cathartic, life affirming, transformational, soul-reviving practice of coming home. Like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. My heart is so full of love. It is with such gratitude and love that I thank my teachers Siri Hari Kaur, Sat Sarbat Kaur and Satmukh Singh, you continue to inspire and uplift me in so many ways. I love you! I highly recommend their influence in your life.

Priya Dhyan Kaur, Australia

I started my Level 1 to go deeper in my own practice and to gain some background in addition to my personal explorations of Kundalini Yoga. It transformed me deeply and finally drove me to teach every week where I live, because now I feel confident enough and I want to share the light.

Charan Kamal Kaur, France

I am very grateful that I found Ajai Alai Awakening to support my journey as a Kundalini Yoga teacher. After completing Level 1, I felt the call to share what I experienced during the training and now the students in my yoga classes are teaching me even more every day. The school helped me being a better human being, understanding and accepting life as it comes.

Your teachers for this training


Deeply inspired by the teachings of Kundalini Yoga and Sat Nam Rasayan, Satmukh has travelled around the world for over 15 years to share them and instil a sense of community and service. Today, he and his wife Sat Sarbat have settled in the wilderness of southern Austria. More sedentary, he teaches online and mainly in Europe face-to-face. Satmukh and Sarbat also welcome groups to their home to experience in depth the alchemy of the 5 elements and inner silence.
Satmukh is passionate about Tantric numerology and offers individual coaching to dissolve the veils and patterns of the subconscious mind embedded in our fears and beliefs. Together with Sat Sarbat, they have created an online training to use this tool in different healing and coaching contexts.
He also offers the "SunChild" programme to teach Kundalini Yoga to children, to provide a space for adults to "reconnect" and to manifest a transmission to children that supports their uniqueness and innocence!
To deepen his path as a Yogi, Satmukh has followed other teachings as his inspirations such as Agnihotra: Agni, the fire, has always had a central place in his teachings of transformation and discernment, Gurdjieff's Sacred Dances and Sufism, Felicitas Godman's Shamanic Ritual Postures (Certified Instructor) and also Somatic Movements as a source of alignment, healing, vitality and relaxation (Certified Instructor and personal coach).
Satmukh is a Lead Trainer and Mentoring lead at the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI). In 2012, he and Sat Sarbat founded the Ajai Alai Awakening school. This school has evolved over time and today offers a space to explore and update the Kundalini teachings through one's own resonances while remaining true to the tradition. We also believe that a committed relationship with a teacher and a community where we can be authentic are essential to connecting our truth.


I met my first teachers Sewa and Dancin’ in 2001 in West Africa. From the former I received an intense, highly disciplined yoga with a martial flavour and from the latter a mystical connection with nature spirits & devotion through music. They introduced me to the art of prayer.
Upon my return from my travels, I was initiated into Babaji’s Kriya Yoga and started a Kundalini Yoga teacher training with Karta Singh. His insightful words and his approach to the 5 elements medicine wheel inspired me a lot.
In 2006, during a stay in India, two Vedic sages awakened me to Agni, the sacred fire. During a ritual offering to the Divine Mother in the presence of Shri Tathata, the ascending Shakti was activated and I opened myself to the light of the Vedas. Then, while staying at Shri Aurobindo’s ashram, the descending force begins to work and I discover the yoga of the cells.
During a retreat in the Himalayas with Chandra Swami, the silent Yogi Udasi, I received the transmission of the Naam & my personal mantra, the sound itself became my Guru. My heart was set on fire and a shift took place, my perception of the world and my sense of identity were forever altered…
Since then, it is with Guru Dev Singh, a Mexican shaman who became a master of “Sat Nam Rasayan”, that I immerse myself in the Tantric current. In his presence, or should I say in his silence, I refine my “Listening”.
Several journeys and encounters give me the blessing of receiving precious spiritual heritages: the Vaishnave lineage, the red path, medicine drum, Shiva’s trident, Sufis lineages …. An invitation to recognise and embrace all forms of connection to the divine. I feel today like a small dot deeply connected to this vast constellation of Truth seekers.
“Aquarian Faqir” is a way of naming this journey. A modern spirituality in resonance with the astrological era we are living in. A call to explore human nature and the world through a listening that is free from expectations. The “Faqir” voluntarily strips himself of all appearances and projections to make himself available to the essential.
My path progressively reveals a particular affinity with the MOON: reflection, cyclicity, reception, rhythm, change, organic pulsation, integration, memory, shadow work, nectar, subtlety and refinement….
This is confirmed by my theme in “Human Design” which names this profile “Reflector”. A very specific energetic structure that does not respond to the cycle of the Sun but is aligned with the lunar cycles.
Thus, my presence acts as an extra reflective mirror for the people I interact with! Not always comfortable because the lunar side is unfortunately often in the shadows and neglected in our society. For those who are ready to open up to change, I am happy to serve their alchemical process.
Today, my work consists in listening, reflecting, revealing and honouring this lunar facet by accompanying each one to :
Deepen their connection with themselves and their surroundings.
Find their own inner rhythm.
Recognise one’s energy signature.
Share and act from the inner self.
Kundalini Yoga teacher training with the AAA school (#), thematic retreats (#) or individual consultations (#) are all meeting places to live and share the experience of this process.
