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

What is Kriya Yoga?

Kriya yoga is a largely internal set of simple yet powerful practices that work 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.  These help to remove obstacles to experiencing continuity and give the practitioner greater access to wisdom virtues such as compassion and clarity.


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

About the teacher

Shambhavi Sarasvati

Shambhavi emphasizes the more explicitly devotional teachings and practices of Trika Shaivism and Dzogchen and direct knowing through encounters with the wisdom of the heart. She is also known for making complex teachings about the nature of the self and reality understandable, practical, and always relatable to everyday experience. Her teachings are grounded in her more than thirty-five years of daily personal practice and personal retreats.

Generosity is a fountain of living light at the heart of creation. Having opened your heart and recognized its identity with the heart of the divine, you want to be here giving and giving throughout your natural lifetime. This is the essence of realization.” ~Shambhavi
