What we're about
"You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the Power that created you."
"Today is the blossom time when many have to get the blessings of yoga."
-- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Founder of Sahaja Yoga
Sahaja Yoga brings meditation into the daily life of those who seek a meaningful spiritual experience, peace and joy. The state of meditation is attained through a spontaneous awakening of the Kundalini, a dormant spiritual energy inside every human being. Once awakened, the Kundalini serves as a boundless source of a peaceful and balancing force. Through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, balanced and integrated.

Sahaja Yoga was founded by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970 and is now taught in over 100 countries.
The meaning of Sahaja is "born within", "spontaneous", "effortless" and "natural". The meaning of the Sanskrit word Yoga is "union". Hence the meaning of the name Sahaja Yoga is essentially one's very own spontaneous union and connection with the Spirit and the All-Pervading. The meditation practice is simple and subtle, yet deeply profound.
