Strengthen Your Kriya Yoga Practice Retreat

Next: Dec 10 – 12, 2017

For those who've had Kriya initiation—guided practices, personal help, and extra support for taking the technique deeper.

NEW in 2016:

For those who have taken Kriya Yoga initiation: This retreat will offer you guided Kriya Yoga meditations, time for personal help on how to make your Kriyas work better for you, and plenty of time for questions/answers. Your retreat will also include meditation in Swami Kriyananda's Moksha Mandir.

We've added this especially to help those who have just taken initiation, but this will be an invaluable retreat for anyone who would like inspiration and help for deepening your practice.
