New Gaia TV Series Features the Kriya Yoga Teachings of Yogananda
February 3, 2017
The Kriya Yoga teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda are the focus of two episodes from two new series on Gaia TV: Yoga Conversations with Rodney Yee and Yoga Masters. (Gaia TV is one of the world’s largest resources of digital videos on spirituality.)
Yoga Conversations with Rodney Yee, hosted by internationally renowned Hatha Yoga teacher Rodney Yee, is a new docu-series that explores yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices. In an interview with Sister Draupadi—a longtime nun of Self-Realization Fellowship—the history, practice and benefits of Kriya Yoga as taught by Sri Yogananda are explored in depth. Filmed on location at SRF’s Hollywood Temple (where Yogananda regularly led Sunday services during the years 1942–1952) the interview also includes a guided meditation. This Yoga Conversations episode began streaming on Gaia.com on February 5. (A preview can be viewed free of charge, and the full interview is available to paying Gaia subscribers.)
In April, Gaia will launch a second series, Yoga Masters, based on the Gaia film team’s travels to India to research some of the country’s most notable swamis and saints. One episode (scheduled for release sometime in June) will feature an interview with Swami Suddhananda, a longtime monk of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (YSS). The segment was filmed at YSS’s headquarters in Dakshineswar (near Kolkata), and, in addition to a discussion about the scientific methods of Kriya Yoga, it features footage of some of the sacred sites associated with Paramahansa Yogananda’s life.
