Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique based on the science of breath. By practising this technique, we will develop our body, mind and soul simultaneously. We will experience the power of the Divine within ourselves, in others and in the entire creation.

Kriya yoga is a spiritual practice, free from all dogma’s. It can be practiced alongside any religion or philosophical system. It is practiced in a concentrated, relaxed way.
