Kriya Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Kriya Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Kriya Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Kriya Yoga is a technique that was hidden in secrecy for many centuries. The great yogi Mahavatar Babaji revived it in 1861 and began teaching it to his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya. Kriya has been taught in a strict lineage style of teaching with the intention of keeping the yoga as close to the original teachings as possible. Paramhansa Yogananda personally authorized Swami Kriyananda (founder of Ananda Yoga) to initiate qualified people into Kriya. The practice is designed to help the practitioner manage their prana (life force energy) by mentally drawing the energy up and down the spine. This technique is used with awareness and will. According to Yogananda, one Kriya, which takes about a half-minute, is equivalent to one year of regular spiritual practice and growth.

Wisdom Flow Yoga
Life is Love in Action

Our teacher training rests on a clear vision of the Wisdom Flow Yoga philosophy: Life is love in action. When we deepen our alignment with the body's natural wisdom, love flows more effectively through us, enhancing well being, creativity, and joy. From this core philosophy, we unfold the methodologies of asana, pranayama, meditation, and more.

And no place can one experience more intensely the power of love in action than on the beautiful island of Maui, where the Aloha spirit shares its blessings with all who ask.
