The Path of Kriya Yoga with Darshan Lotichius
Jan 13 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

“You can be in a room twenty years, trying to get out through the walls, the ceiling, the floor. It is when you finally discover the door that you find your way out. That’s how it is with the soul. The average devotee may struggle his whole life trying to escape the bodily limitations by unscientific means, and by the paths only of devotion or discrimination. Kriya Yoga takes one to God by the universal highway: the spine.”
– Paramhansa Yogananda, from Conversations with Yogananda

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 can also help to awaken that energy.

The Kriya technique is much more direct. It helps the practitioner to control the life force by mentally drawing it up and down the spine, with awareness and will. According to Yogananda, one Kriya, which takes about a half-minute, is equivalent to one year of natural spiritual growth. Kriya Yoga is a powerful and sacred technique taught through initiation and has several prerequisite steps.

This 4 class series is specifically for those who want to explore and also deepen their understanding of this specific path of Self-realization as taught by Paramhansa Yogananda. It will meet every other week for 8 weeks.

We will use Autobiography of a Yogi as the foundational text for discussion but this is an interactive and experiential series which will include pranayam practice as well as the first two (out of 4) of those required steps/practices leading up to Kriya initiation by a qualified Kriyacharya.

Led by Supriya Chadwick, Maitri Smithhisler and Mark Smithhisler
Special Guest teacher: Darshan Lotichius
