The Yoga Hour: Living the Eternal Way offers inspiration, insights, and time-tested practices from the ancient system of Kriya Yoga—a philosophy and practice for spiritually conscious, fulfilled living today. This hour of dialogue with internationally renowned spiritual teachers offers keen insight into universal principles for enlightened living while touching the most practical aspects of our lives such as work, relationships, health, and diet. Even while emphasizing the practical, it speaks to our deepest yearnings to fully awaken to Self- and God-realization in this lifetime.

A powerful stream of inspiration to transform the way we live every moment of every day flows from the vast ocean of Vedic wisdom and is accessible to all. Every seeker who yearns to know the Truth and live in harmony with it will find The Yoga Hour to be a trusted place to listen, reflect, stretch the mind, and open the heart to what really matters.
