K.R.I.Y.A. – Kundalini Rising International Yoga Academy

The name of Kundalini Rising International Yoga Academy was inspired by the word Kriya, which is a series of exercises that produces an impact significantly greater than the individual exercises. Practicing a Kriya creates a shift in consciousness. K.R.I.Y.A. was created to offer the teachings of Kundalini Yoga as brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan in a way that retains the purity of the teachings and offers an expanded synthesis of spiritual concepts needed to create a foundation for the Aquarian Age.

K.R.I.Y.A. was founded in 2004 by Guru Rattana and her sister Guru Kirin as the platform for their Kundalini Rising Yoga Teacher Training Courses. K.R.I.Y.A. is registered with Yoga Alliance. The sisters have taught Level One courses in San Diego (2005), Austin, Texas (2005), and Hawaii (2006, 2007, and 2008). 

After her European teaching tour in 2008, Guru Rattana was invited to collaborate with Hari Karta Kaur and Dharam Atma Singh in offering Inner Awareness Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Courses for Russian speaking students. The first five courses were held in Crimea 2009 – 2013. Subsequent courses were held in Montenegro (2014) and Serbia (2015-2019).

Guru Rattana was also invited her students/teachers to teach Inner Awareness Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Turkey, Czech Republic, and Croatia.
