Coming September 13th - KriyaU.com

We are now just a few days away from the unveiling of a new website dedicated to the life work of Goswami Kriyananda.

Although it's not officially a university, it will be a portal for all of Kriyananda's work. We have digitized more than a thousand lectures, and there is still quite a bit to do.

The website will be set up similar to Amazon, in that there will be free areas with lots of content and lectures, and paid areas. In order to access most of the content a user registration is necessary, although there is no obligation to buy anything. In fact there is enough free information to keep someone busy for years!

Please watch the site for more information and an update. Thanks for your interest and support of the Kriya Lineage.

Love What You Do For a Living- Become a Yoga Teacher

Join the longest running Hatha Yoga teacher training program in the Midwest! Classes are now forming at the Temple of Kriya Yoga. Our teacher training classes are in-depth and thorough. Through this course you will discover the connection between the postures and the overall concept of Yoga that Patanjali set out thousands of years ago.

Led by Agnieszka Miskewicz, RYT 500, the program runs for 9 months. In that time you will be trained to understand the poses and proper techniques for teaching yoga, and find your spirit lifted listening to talks given by Goswami Kriyananda about the philosophy of Yoga.

Many graduates feel the same as Shannon Kinney, who says "I feel blessed that I found the Temple." The peacefulness of our building set in our quiet Logan Square neighborhood, the knowledge of our teacher and the philosophy of Goswami Kriyananda will motivate you to reach your own level of calm and wisdom.

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."
