Begin Your Path Today!

In-house Hatha Yoga Teacher Training & Certification Program

Semester begins September 20!

"This programs offers intensive detailed aspects from anatomy, proper skeletal alignment, to the history and philosophy of yoga, that is taught by highly educated, experienced instructors.

The teachers are welcoming, warm, compassionate and committed! They are always available with a wealth of knowledge and inspiration when personal challenges are being faced, and no student is left behind. They teach you the concept of 'living your life of yoga' on and off the mat with realistic ideas that you can incorporate in your every day life. They are dedicated to the program and their students, and it shows in every class they teach! I thank them daily for their guidance, patience, and tools to follow the path of being a yoga teacher."

Kriya Yoga Seminary

New semester begins September 15!

The Temple of Kriya Seminary was developed more than 30 years ago as a bridge between the Temple of Kriya Yoga and dedicated souls who are called to a life of spiritual service; a life devoted to benefiting others. It is a home study course that will cultivate your spiritual unfoldment, prepare you for the priesthood, and help you to assist those who seek a deeper understanding of themselves, God, and Life.

One of the fundamental principles of Kriya Yoga is the understanding that each of us has the ability to be happy and fulfilled in this very lifetime. One of the best means of achieving this is to share our wisdom and compassion with the world around us.

Students are saying …

"Of all the words I have heard and read in my life, Sri Goswami Kriyananda's are the ones that continue to inspire me the most. What he distills from his thorough knowledge of the major mystical schools is a set of practical techniques that encourage self-awareness and compassion.

For many, it is his humor and down-to-earth sensibility that is so appealing; for others, it is his rigorously scientific and mathematical mind; for others still, it is the power of his insight regarding the fusion of the mundane and the spiritual. His is the brilliant achievement of the true Master."
