Evolving Kundalini was formed in 2020 by Ravi Singh and other “Independent” Kundalini Yoga Teachers in response to the disclosure that Yogi Bhajan, who had delivered Kundalini Yoga to the West in 1969, had abused his power and caused very real harm to many.

Evolving Kundalini unequivocally supports those who were harmed, marginalized, and/or exploited. In the Spirit of Sat Nam and for Kundalini Yoga to truly evolve, we declare a new day for how Kundalini Yoga is taught, practiced, and understood.

This group was founded on these principles:

We honor Adi Shakti who is Compassion. Who is Kundalini. Who is the Creativity of Creation. Who is the Hope for the World. We bow to the Infinite Teacher, who is the source of these amazing Teachings.

May we be conscious conduits for the Universe to work through.
We believe that Kundalini Yoga is a compendium of the “greatest hits,” of the Saints and Sages of the ages and that it exists as part of the continuum of All Yoga. 
May we have the flexibility to discuss, process, and recontextualize the Teachings while honoring their original intention. 
We honor the right of everyone to practice and teach informed by their own experience.
We acknowledge that there will always be a dynamic tension between traditionalists and innovators. This is what fuels evolution.
We opt for the Spirit of the Awe over the letter of the law.

We acknowledge Guru Nanak’s teaching and lineage as the core tradition woven through this technology and we maintain great reverence and gratitude for the Sikh tradition.

We do not recognize 3HO/KRI as having the moral or legal authority to claim “ownership” of Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini Yoga belongs to the people who practice it.

We believe that Kundalini Yoga is meant to be an open source teaching.

Kundalini Yoga is an emergent system, constantly reinventing itself through time and space.

Kundalini Yoga is a tantric system. Tantric systems are based on the same underlying principles which are eternal, but that morph externally into whatever form is most appropriate for the time they’re in.

We believe that to honor our soul we need to honor who we are and honor other people’s rights to unabashedly be who they are. This aligns with the resonance of Sat Nam, the essence of which is that Reality into which the ‘I’ dissolves.

We believe that as Kundalini Yoga Teachers we are
meant to be a support system for those who have made non-traditional choices, either in gender identity, lifestyle, or culture.

We believe that, in our classes and Teacher Trainings, it should not be obligatory to wear all white and keep one’s head covered. We believe that these types of things should be a personal decision.

We believe that the forms that emerge as Kundalini Yoga evolves will transcend our yoga mats and surprise all of us.

Kundalini Yoga is training for life. We believe that
Kundalini Yoga works best when we make our
yoga our life and our life our yoga.

We believe that Kundalini Yoga should be above all,
joyful expressions of art and soul.
