Sahaja Yoga Meditation

A worldwide meditation practice founded in 1970 by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.

Sahaja Yoga allows you to experience a union between your true self and the all-pervading energy around us. It is achieved through Self-Realization – the awakening of the inner energy, Kundalini, that lies dormant at the base of the spine within each human being. Once the Kundalini is awakened, the individual experiences a blissful state of thoughtless awareness, where the mind is silent and they simply witness the present moment.

Shri Mataji dedicated Her life to teaching people of all nationalities, races, and religious backgrounds how to use Sahaja Yoga to better theirs. She envisioned the regular practice of Sahaja Yoga producing evolved societies, where people lead joyful, balanced lives. All Sahaja Yoga classes are offered Free of charge.
