Yogacharya Nisha Pandey learned the practice of Kriya Yoga meditation in her youth and has been cultivating body, mind, intellect and awareness of the soul through this ancient method of meditation that predates religion. Its yoga disciplines and techniques of concentration, posture and breathing help the spiritual seeker to experience the three divine qualities of light, vibration and sound and penetrate the deepest levels of consciousness to change our lives. Through every action and breath we learn to recognize our own divinity and achieve the blissful state of divine love and contentment in our lives. Kriya Yoga is a powerful tool to be used by seekers of all religions to hasten spiritual development.

Brought from India to the West a century ago by Paramahansa Yogananda, Kriya Yoga teaches that any action, kri, is done by ya, the indwelling soul. Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi inspired a spiritual revolution in the West with devotees as diverse as Steve Jobs and Mahatma Gandhi. Descending through a lineage of Kriya Yoga spiritual masters that continues today, in Protected content , worldwide, devotees will celebrate the centennial of the new light of spiritual understanding and consciousness the beloved guru spread throughout the world.

The Science of Kriya Yoga

The Kriya technique emphasizes the relationship between breath and mind. The breath influences the mind and vice-versa. This reciprocal relationship reveals the secret of controlling the mind: "Breath control is self-control. Breath mastery is self-mastery."

Spiritual seekers who follows the path of Kriya Yoga with love and devotion and a desire for spiritual growth can attain Self-realization — even within one lifetime. This powerful yoga is a manifestation of many forms of yoga, but primarily it derives from Raja yoga, which Hatha yoga is inseparable from, Karma yoga, Jnana yoga and Bhakti yoga.
