I was in a very stressful job and knew if things didn’t change I would become ill and my family life would suffer. My daughter was attending Kriya Yoga with Swami Aliananda Paramahansa in her Shambala Ashram in Penzance and suggested I came along as it was helping her in her life.

In January 2016 I attended the weekly gatherings and practiced Kriya Yoga and attended the World Peace Mission in February 2016 which was inspirational.

Over the weeks and months amazing things happened I found I was much calmer and more understanding at work and subtle changes happened. There was a reorganisation at work and my work load lessened and it was not so complicated. This had a knock on effect at home and family and friends said I was radiating light and energy and always smiling and happy.

I began to see life differently and what was important to me which was spending quality time with my family and friends, so at Christmas I retired and I am enjoying every minute.

Kriya Yoga breathing techniques lets you enjoy the silence and to go inside yourself and discover the real you and what is important to you. I will be eternally grateful to my daughter and Swami Aliananda Paramahansa for bringing it into my life.
