Harness the Natural Realities Within

Kriya Yoga works directly with the source of growth — the spiritual energy deep in our spines. All yoga techniques work with this energy, usually indirectly. Yoga postures, for example, can help open up the spinal channels, and balance the energy in the spine. Yoga breathing exercises or pranayama can help to awaken that energy. However, Kriya Yoga is more direct. It helps the practitioner to control the life force by mentally drawing that life force up and down the spine, with awareness and will.

Through Kriya Yoga, you begin to discover you are much more than the physical body, personality or any limiting self-definition. Kriya Yoga helps awaken us to the much deeper reality of ourselves as a divine soul, connected to all that is. The ultimate goal of Kriya is Self-realization: the knowing in body, mind, and soul that you are one with the Infinite.
