The Institute promotes universal spiritual principles and embraces students of every denomination. One does not have to follow an eastern religious practice to be involved in the Kriya Yoga classes, though an understanding of universal spiritual philosophies is beneficial. Jadatharaya Yoga instructors have been initiated into Kriya Yoga and are trained by Swami Shankarananda personally. All of our instructors teach on a voluntary basis and classes are offered at an affordable R100 per month to cover venue expenses.
