Atma Kriya Yoga helps you realise a personal relationship with the Divine by bringing the awareness of the soul into everything you do. Through the grace of Shaktipat Initiation, the practice brings you more love, joy and connection with life itself. It also helps burn lifetimes of karma, and purify the mind and body so you can advance on your spiritual path.

Atma Kriya Yoga is our most advanced practice; each technique cultivates a different type of bhakti – love of the Divine – and opens the heart to the transformational power of love. The techniques are simple enough for beginners to learn, yet powerful enough to take even the most experienced meditators to new realms of awareness and Divine connection.


Atma Kriya Yoga purifies all levels of your consciousness: body, emotions, mind and intellect, which allows your inner light to shine brighter. The practice burns lifetimes of karma, removing everything that stands in the way of you ultimately realising the ever-present Divine residing in your own heart.


The goal of true yoga is union with the Divine: Self-Realisation through Divine Love. Atma Kriya Yoga inspires you to bring the awareness of your eternal Self into every thought, word and action. The techniques connect you with the source of life within your own being so you can fully enjoy your eternal relationship with the Divine.


As your practice deepens, Divine Qualities naturally begin to manifest: peace, self-control, strength, wisdom, humility, compassion, vitality, and more. Atma Kriya Yoga gives you the tools to transcend the duality of the material world and awaken Divine Love: everything you need to attain true freedom.

“Atma Kriya Yoga makes every piece of my life better. Physically it is stabilizing, if I’m feeling a little bit ill, it brings me back to this place of feeling strong and healthy again. If I am feeling mentally scattered, it brings me back to the place where I am clear about exactly what I want and how to make it happen. Spiritually it has brought me in touch with myself, what I am looking for on the spiritual path, who I am, how I relate to the Divine, to other people, and to the Divine in them and ultimately to the Divine that is in myself.” – Aaron (USA)


“After taking Atma Kriya Yoga I fell in love with everything about my life. I fell in love with my job, I didn’t like it as much before. I found the beauty in living the way I was living in the world and I found more acceptance for everything in my life. I started feeling love for everything. Now, everything I do, I try to do it with love and awareness. It doesn’t happen all the time, but I notice it is happening more and more often with the practice.” – Janita (South Africa)


“Atma Kriya Yoga talks about love. I wanted to do it to increase that love inside of me. I was practising Atma Kriya Yoga without that consciousness before and it was an effort for me. Now I understand that it is only love. I want to practise a lot now, because this is only way to get out of my negativity, and I feel that only that love can help me to go through that.” – Jean Claude (France)


Shaktipat Initiation. Shaktipat is the reason Atma Kriya Yoga is the most powerful form of yoga available today. The Kriya Lineage Shaktipat Initiation unlocks the full potential of the techniques, protecting and guiding the practitioner every step of the practice. It also awakens the Divine Light that lies dormant inside your chakras and guarantees the success of the techniques.

Lineage – History. Mahavatar Babaji is the father of all Kriya lineages and the Guru of Paramahamsa Vishwananda, the Master of Atma Kriya Yoga. The blessing and grace of all the Kriya Masters is infused into the student through the Shaktipat Initiation. It is that blessing that ultimately leads the practitioner to experience the ever-present Divine residing in their own heart.

Full System. Atma Kriya Yoga is a full yogic system that includes meditation, as well as energetic and physical yogic exercises. The practice is well-rounded and yet flexible enough to incorporate into a busy lifestyle. Atma Kriya Yoga is ideally suited for this current time in history as it helps to develop bhakti: love of the Divine in all things.
