Paramhansa Yogananda popularized Kriya Yoga through his book, Autobiography of a Yogi, and through his public teaching in the West. According to Yogananda, Kriya Yoga is the most effective meditation technique available to mankind today for reaching the goal of Yoga: union with the Divine.
The Kriya Yoga technique is taught by Ananda Sangha Worldwide through initiation by one of our Kriya Yoga teachers. These teachers were personally instructed by Swami Kriyananda, who himself was authorized by Paramhansa Yogananda to pass on the Kriya technique. Our teachers have been initiating people into Kriya Yoga for more than 30 years and teaching meditation for over 50 years.
Ananda Kriya Sangha helps prepare people for Kriya Yoga training in-person, through online courses, and by home book study programs. We have helped thousands of people learn and practice Kriya Yoga since 1968.
