Sunchild, Training certified by Ajai Alai Awakening

Kundalini Yoga has been given to us by a great master, Yogi Bhajan, and encompasses all aspects of life. It helps children to get to know themselves and their body in a joyful and playful way.

It balances their emotions and helps to reduce anxiety and aggression. It has been proven by research that yoga increases flexibility, concentration and well-being.

Furthermore it improves social behavior as it makes children more loving, self conscious and calm. Reinforcing their personality and nervous system, Kundalini Yoga prepares children to face challenges and negative aspects of life with a positive approach and with tools that work.

Course material is included in price and comprises a manual and copies of sets, meditations, mantras and songs for children.

Meet your Teachers

Since 2001 Sat Sarbat Kaur is certified to teach yoga to children through the American Radiant Child™ Yoga Program, Next Generation Yoga® , as well as by 3HO Germany where she followed the first edition of the Kundalini Yoga teacher training for children offered by its creator: Shiva Kaur Khalsa.

For 6 years Sat Sarbat Kaur gave regular yoga classes to children from 4 to 12 years in her yoga centre in Austria as well as in several elementary and maternity schools, before becoming herself a trainer for children yoga teachers.

In the past she has been a trainer of 3HO Germany and part of the team of the Amrit Nam Sarovar school in France for the development of children and teenagers programs. She has now been offering her own teacher training for children worldwide since 2013.  On the personal level her experience with children is a life-long one, as she raised herself nine children among her own and adopted ones.

She believes that children should be taught to tap into their inner strength, peace and happiness in order to become trustworthy, reliable and independent adults.

Specificities of Sunchild Teacher Training

By Sat Sarbat Kaur Khalsa

Questions have been brought to my attention by students doubting which children yoga teacher training to follow, as programmes offered on the market seem quite different in length and price, and nevertheless end all the same with a certification for teaching children.

Following this, I put together some extra information which can help clarifying the topic. Since I cannot speak for other programmes, I will describe the one that the Ajai Alai International Kundalini Yoga School is offering.

I am a certified 3HO German trainer for children yoga. I taught in the 3HO children yoga teacher training in Europe. When time came to offer that programme in China, 3HO Germany realized that it was not cost effective to bring their programme to Asia. Furthermore we jointly realize the limitations caused by the fact that foreign programmes are rooted on songs in English or German with which Chinese children cannot identify. We therefore agreed that Ajai Alai would develop its individual training for Chinese-speaking countries, and gradually develop the relationship with the local culture.

Trainers for this teacher training are myself, who among own and adopted ones raised 9 children, and my husband, Satmukh Singh, whose parents worked as foster parents for children of difficult backgrounds who had to be taken away from their family and environment for their own protection. Sharing his childhood with these difficult children made Satmukh a very sensitive and compassionate caretaker for children. His direct personal experience in this field, is a precious and unique contribution to this teacher training.

Our idea for a teacher training is not limited to postures, games or play with children. This is of course a very important and joyful aspect of it. Nevertheless we believe that Yogi Bhajan contributed a lot more than this to children education and growth. He spoke about discipline and how to empower children to create their bright future. Nowadays, children are either exploited or too spoiled. Over care, limiting risks and rescuing children too quickly, does damage their creative potential.

We also believe that before we can work effectively with children, we need to heal our own relationship to our parents and inner child. In failing to go through this process, we reproduce the same patterns that make us miserable, and we put expectations on children that are not connected to who they are. Furthermore, we bring in the work with children our own judgment about what is right and wrong, whether this is cultural, emotional, personal or just part of a ready-made belief system.

Finally, in the years of my yoga studies, I found myself to take courses for children yoga, enjoying them and yet, once back home, not really been competent about how and what to teach.

With the SunChild programme of Ajai Alai we intended to address all these issues. The manual we have written for participants to this teacher training is a 180-page long, very comprehensive guide on Yogi Bhajan’s teachings for children and parenting. It also includes modern research and techniques in the field of child education coming from other sources, and, of course, it has been translated into Chinese for easy access.

We believe that 9 days is the minimum possible for you to integrate these teachings and go at the same time through the possibility of self-transformation and growth. Less than that is totally unrealistic for the goal we have set.

The following feedback received from participants clearly support this information. The teacher training is fun, but above all it allows adults to heal, free themselves from patterns of suffering and destruction and be present to the world of children in a pure, authentic and supportive way.
