Ananda provides training in meditation techniques that lead, if you wish, to initiation in the Kriya Yoga technique. The course of study is approximately a year, and allows the student ample time to deepen in regular practice of Yogananda’s meditation techniques. Kriya initiation is offered formally in the Bay Area once a year, and monthly at Ananda Village, Nevada City.
