with Shambhavi Sarasvati

“Kriya-Yoga is the direction to the ultimate objective.” ~Anandamayi Ma

What is Kriya Yoga?

Kriya yoga is largely internal and works directly with the subtle channels of your energy body  and other aspects of your subtle anatomy. Many practices of kriya yoga involve using the subtle breath, visualization, mantra, and bandha.

What you will learn

Shambhavi has trained in several systems of Kriya Yoga from India. In this teaching, she introduces the subtle anatomy and gives students a powerful toolbox of traditional kriyas that help to remove obstacles to experiencing continuity and greater access to wisdom virtues such as compassion and clarity.

Prerequisite: An established, daily, seated practice. Trika Foundations highly recommended.

About the teacher


Shambhavi Sarasvati is the spiritual director of Jaya Kula. Her principle training is in the View and practices of Trika Shaivism, the Tantrik tradition of Kashmir, and the Dzogchen tradition of Tibet.

Spiritual practice is a way to find out who you really are and to live in the fullness of Reality. This is Self-realization. Nothing more or less.” —Shambhavi

$60 low-income
$80 regular
$160 sponsoring


All Jaya Kula teachings offer “regular” and “low-income” options for registration. Just choose the option that’s appropriate for you. The students of Jaya Kula have generously donated and made it possible for us to offer additional discounts for people who cannot afford the low-income fee. Please email Shambhavi if this is your circumstance.

The “sponsoring” option is a higher donation amount. 100% of the difference between the “regular” registration fee and the “sponsoring” amount will be used to assist students who cannot afford the low-income fee. Sponsor donations will be used to both offer deeper discounts and to reimburse low-income students or people experiencing temporary financial hardships for part or all of their airfare to attend teachings and retreats.

The “Lakshmi’s Cupboard” option is for people not attending this teaching who wish to assist others to attend.  Please write “Lakshmi” in the message line when making your donation so that your contribution can be earmarked for students in need.
