Note: new applicants must be accepted by January 15th in order to be invited to teach at Summer Solstice, and by July 15th for Winter Solstice.
Classes at Solstice make up a major part of the Solstice Sadhana Experience. We invite teachers to teach at Solstice in whom we have confidence to deliver the teachings under the time and space pressure-cooker that is Solstice.
We know that there are so many wonderful and dedicated Teachers out there. We all are teachers, whether we teach 7 classes a week or none at all. Some of us come to Solstice to recharge our batteries, and keep a low profile during the event. Others want to serve by leading and teachings at Solstice.
Qualified teachers are added to our Solstice Teacher Invitation List. Invitation letters go out several months before each event.
I. Requirements for Consideration:
1) You have attended at least 1 Winter or Summer Solstice in the past year.
2) You are actively teaching a Kundalini Yoga class or a class related to your subject matter.
3) You are a KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher and your IKYTA membership is active and thriving! (if not you can join: http://www.ikyta.org/membership/join). Also, check out *Why are Solstice Teachers Required to be IKYTA Members?
4) It's been at least 3 years since you began teaching Kundalini Yoga, and you love it!
You might be missing one or more of the above items. That’s okay, but if so, we cannot consider you for being an Event Teacher at this time. If you do meet these initial requirements, we might ask you to give us some more information about your teaching practice, style, commitment, and references. This will help us to get to know you better!
To apply to be added to the Solstice Teacher Invitation List, complete the form below. If your application is accepted, you will receive an invitation letter for the following Solstice event, at which point you can submit a class proposal.
We are all here to learn and become more rooted in our True Infinite Selves, our Sat Nam, so that we can shine all throughout the year. Whether this is the right time/venue for you to teach or not, it is our prayer that you continue to grow and to become 10 times greater.
III. Once you are accepted
If you are accepted, you are added to our Solstice Teacher Invitation List. This doesn't guarantee you a teaching spot at any of our Solstice events. You must submit a class proposal for each Solstice event if you want to teach. Once you are on the list, you will get an invitation letter before each Solstice asking you to submit your class proposal. We choose the classes/teachers for each solstice based on a variety of needs—class themes, classroom times and availability, and amount of applicants.
Invitation letters go out 5 months before each Solstice event, so depending on when your application is accepted, you might not be able to teach at the next upcoming event.
All teachers remain on our Solstice Teacher Invitation List unless they ask to be taken off or if there is an issue with your IKYTA membership or standing. Also, 3HO reserves the right to remove teachers at any time.
