Ananda: 50 Years of Teaching Kriya Yoga

Devalila Veenhof February 25, 2020

Over the years, Ananda has helped thousands of truthseekers all over the world to prepare for initiation into Kriya Yoga. We’ve seen that the practice of Kriya is infinitely more effective after the proper preparation and study of the Kriya teachings.

The Kriya technique is taught through initiation by one of our Kriyacharyas or Kriya Yoga teachers who are authorized by Swami Kriyananda, who himself was authorized by Paramhansa Yogananda, to pass on the Kriya technique. Many of our teachers have been initiating people into Kriya Yoga for more than 30 years, and teaching meditation for over 50 years.

We give Kriya initiations most often in the United States, India, and Italy, however our teachers often travel to other countries including Mexico, Russia, Singapore, New Zealand, and other countries to give initiations.

Once a person recieves Kriya initiation through Ananda, there is continual, ongoing support including online courses and workshops on Kriya, in-person Kriya Retreats, weekly guided meditations, and a private website with articles, video and audio to help deepen one’s Kriya practice. The Ananda Kriya Sangha also offers e-mail support and personal one-on-one counseling.
