New Center for Atma Kriya Yoga in Destin

Oct 30, 2014 03:07PM

Sheila Mohammed, M.D., Ph.D., has opened the Atma Kriya Yoga Center at 225 Main Street., Suite 17, in Destin. Atma kriya yoga, or the yoga of the soul, was made available to the world by the great yogi Mahavatar Babaji, a 1,000-year-old spiritual guide who lives in the Himalayas of India.

Atma kriya yoga is a faster method of achieving spiritual growth than most yoga classes that emphasize yoga poses. It is only taught by specially trained teachers, and involves learning how to open and close the energy centers, or chakras, of the body. A kriya is a skill that the student learns to help move and cleanse the energy of both the subtle bodies and the gross physical body. The act of doing something either physically or mentally helps to focus the mind to a particular task, and so the mind is able to calm down from a litany of thoughts. Om Healing is also taught and practiced, which is a group circle chanting of “Om” for healing.
