2.  Baltimore/Washington DC Kriya Yoga Center has expanded! 

Starting Jan. 2018, Kriya group meditations are available in both Ellicott City, MD and Falls Church, VA each Sunday at 10:00 am.      With the approval of the Kriya Yoga Institute, we have established a satellite Kriya Yoga meditation “GROUP” in the Northern, VA area as part of the Baltimore/Washington DC Kriya Yoga Center.        The satellite “Group” provides an option for the growing number of dedicated, sincere kriyavans in and around the northern Virginia area to attend weekly guided group meditations in Falls Church, VA.  This supports those who find it difficult to regularly attend weekly meditations in Ellicott City, MD due to the driving time and distance.       Thanks to the generous commitment and service of Diane Vermaaten, who serves as the group coordinator, and to Krishna Tenepalli, who is graciously providing the meditation space.  *Email for address. 

Weekly SUNDAY Guided Group Meditation Schedule:  (email for addresses)

1st Kriya Meditation  10:00-11:00 am each Sunday morning (for all initiates).  *Group meditations are open to disciples who have been initiated into Kriya Yoga under the lineage of Paramahamsa Hariharananda and Paramahamsa Prajnanananda.  Meditation locations are in Ellicott City, MD and Falls Church, VA.  

2nd Kriya Meditation  8:40-10:00 am (open to those who have received 2nd Kriya initiation)  *Note for 2nd Kriya initiates:  On the last Sunday of each month we will have an extended 95 minute 2nd Kriya meditation that will begin at 8:20 am.   (2nd Kriya meditation in Ellicott City, MD only.)
