Most people think of yoga as physical postures. But Raja Yoga is far more. Raja Yoga offers a scientific AND heart approach to the spiritual life and to expanding our awareness of spiritual realities. It is one of the seven schools of Indian philosophy and has been taught for millennia.

Based on “The Art and Science of Raja Yoga” by Swami Kriyananda, as taught by Paramhansa Yogananda, it is the most comprehensive course on yoga and meditation offered today. It gives us the balanced and complete approach of raja yoga, which is also known as the “royal” yoga. It is also Step 2 on the Path of Kriya Yoga.  These teachings are truly universal and apply to everyone regardless of religious or spiritual affiliation and have the power to transform your life.
