What we're about
"You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the Power that created you."
-- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011), Founder of Sahaja Yoga
Sahaja Yoga aims to bring meditation into the lives of ordinary people who seek a meaningful spiritual experience. 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 peaceful, joyful and balanced.

• As taught by Shri Mataji, the founder of Sahaja Yoga
Sahaja Yoga meditation is taught for free and practised 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.
Classes are always free of charge based on the principle that inner peace is each and every human being's birthright. We are a not for profit group of volunteers. Sahaja Yoga International was founded by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970.
