    An experience-based transformation course to find a teacher within you.

    This is a step into changing your life, discovering and becoming who you really are; to spread your light, inspire and uplift other people.

    More than just teaching yoga classes…

    But what is a teacher today? It’s not enough to just teach postures, breath and meditation.

    We are honouring the original teachings, received from living Masters, Mouth to Ear. We went through 36 years of traditional transmission of the “Master’s Touch”. You can’t find our access in books, but only through the delivery of qualified mentor-teachers.

    There are different qualities you can have as a teacher:

    • a way-shower
    • a healer
    • a mentor
    • an uplifter

    You need to go through a transformation process to connect with yourself and discover those qualities within you, then you will be able to impact others in one or another way, and for some this is through teaching yoga classes.

    Why choose us?

    An uplifting learning experience to help you understand how yoga can open up your life. Immersion in nature, community living, yogic lifestyle and an international context provide an environment to come out of ordinary living. You will directly experience the transformative power and essence of the teachings. Develop your intuition, your discipline and capacity to serve. Allow your uniqueness to emerge. Create a direct relationship with your own development.

    Amrit Nam Sarovar cultivates an attitude of permanent learning and offers a process to qualify your own development through a multi-level mentoring system. Therefore, it also serves as the training ground of the school and its trainers. It is the place where we share the teachings from a common source of inspiration through a variety of teaching styles and approaches, drawing upon a vast repository of experience.

    The Amrit Nam Sarovar Kundalini Awakening Training level 1, or ‘Outreach’ for short, takes place in the middle of nature, in the French Alps. It is led by an international team of Teacher Trainers under the guidance of school director and founder Karta Singh Khalsa. The course is in English with translation into French, German and possibly other languages. The training consists of 3 four day modules and one week, all held at the ashram over six months. During the training everyone will be assigned into a mentoring group that oversees the continuity of the process. At the end of the training there will be an exam.

    In the 4 day modules we will meet with the Outreach group only, while in the week module, in the summer, we meet with all the ANS level 1 groups together at Le Martinet, the mother ashram of the school. In this unique immersive week you will learn together in an international group. It will strengthen your connection, to others as well as to your own true self.

  • Testimonials


    "The training renewed my love of and respect for nature. There was a moment on the training where up until that point I had been intensely attached to my family and mother and suddenly there was a feeling that the earth was my mother.
    The spirit and support of the group and the teachers was invaluable during the training - it goes beyond business transactions and certificates to a genuine care I felt for our spirit and well being. 
    I discovered the power of discipline and purifying the body and mind, and even though I slip up so much, it's OK, there it is to come back to. And I can't wait to continue to the 500 hours and explore more of the connection with nature and the universe". 



    This course, this experience, has given me something to treasure and nurture for the rest of my life.

    Other Kundalini schools will show you what you need in order to teach.
    Amrit Nam Sarovar will take you on a journey to yourself...

    ...Then you'll be a teacher.

    Sat Narayan Singh


    I wasn't sure why I signed up for the teacher training level 1 with ANS at the time, but I am so grateful that I did. It was the most amazing and profound journey. I discovered depths of strength that I didn't know existed, found that the impossible became possible, and found a deeper more compassionate connection with myself. I don't ever intend to stop this journey into yoga, into the breath and the body, into the heart mind and soul of what it is to be human.  It is now the most important part of my life. And to share it now, to teach it is a joy and a blessing.  :-)
