7 p.m.

Kriya Yoga UK is pleased to announce the visit of Yogacharya Claudia Cremers to London to teach Kriya Yoga from 19 April to 21 April 2024. Claudia Ma will be assisted by Yogacharya Annelies van Haaren. If you are interested in learning, there will be an introductory lecture on Friday evening and an opportunity to receive initiation and to learn and practise the techniques of Kriya Yoga on Saturday and Sunday.

Kriya Yoga is the ancient and mystical path to self-realisation. ‘Kri’ is the work or activity carried out by ‘ya’ the indwelling soul. Yoga is the union of individual self and Supreme Self. Kriya Yoga is a non-sectarian, scientific and practical meditation technique practised by sages and saints since time immemorial. Kriya Yoga leads to the transformation of the physical consciousness into Divine consciousness and is the essence of all yogas taught in the world.

In order to practise Kriya Yoga, one needs to receive initiation which can only be given with the grace and love of the Master through an authorised teacher, during which the body is purified and energised. The initiate may perceive Divine Light, Divine Vibration and Divine Sound in the whole body. There is no book or lesson to learn the Kriya Yoga techniques. Kriya Yoga emanates from beyond the five sense organs.

This event will be of interest to those who wish to learn Kriya Yoga for the first time and who will benefit from the purity and authentic teachings of the lineage. Kriya Yoga can be practised by those who have never meditated or practised yoga before.

Yogacharya Claudia Cremers was initiated into Kriya Yoga by Rajarshi Peter Van Breukelen in 1987 and met Paramahamsa Hariharananda in 1990 in New York. Since then she travelled frequently to India, Europe, and the USA to stay and meditate with Gurudev. She was authorised to initiate seekers into Kriya Yoga in May 2007.

Claudia was born in the Netherlands, studied music and law in Amsterdam and post graduate government studies in Paris (ENA). From 1987 to 2012 she worked as a government official in international affairs. Since then she retired to the Sterksel ashram to devote more time to spiritual service and to teaching Kriya Yoga.

Yogacharya Annelies van Haaren has been a disciple of Paramahamsa Hariharananda for over 45 years. She travelled around the globe with Gurudev in the early eighties. Annelies Ma lives with her husband in the West of Ireland and has two sons. Annelies worked as an architect and now enjoys taking care of her vegetable garden.
