In the realm of meditation, Dharana techniques lay the foundation, although meditation itself transcends technique. Kriya Yoga techniques, honed over centuries by Eastern Masters, provide a path to unlock meditation’s potential. They offer an accessible route for individuals to explore profound levels of consciousness, address existential challenges, and enhance their well-being, creativity, and intuition.

What Are Kriya Yoga Techniques?

Kriya Yoga techniques represent simplified meditation practices crafted by ancient sages. They cater to both the common householder and the dedicated Yoga Sadhaka, making meditation accessible to all. The Kriya Yoga technique, rooted in the Kaivalyadhama lineage and traced back to Manu Smriti, comes highly recommended by Swami Digambar Ji, the late Spiritual Head of Kaivalyadhama, a pioneering institute in Yoga research, training, and treatment.

Discover the Benefits

Extensive research and clinical evidence attest to the effectiveness of Kriya Yoga in managing and alleviating insomnia, migraines, tension headaches, body aches, hypertension, diabetes, anxiety, and various emotional disorders. Practicing Kriya Yoga can also lead to improved physical and mental stamina, inner contentment, and equanimity in the face of life’s challenges.

How Does Kriya Yoga Work?

In the Kaivalyadhama Tradition, Kriya Yoga employs techniques such as Anuloma Viloma Pranayama to cleanse the nadis, facilitating the optimal flow of Prana (life force) throughout the body.

Kriya Yoga harmonises Prana circulation, ensuring the proper functioning of psycho-physiological systems, resulting in robust immunity and a sense of psycho-physiological balance conducive to meditation.

Explore a Variety of Kriya Yoga Techniques

Our workshop covers approximately eight diverse Kriya Yoga techniques from various traditions, including
