Babaji's Kriya Yoga - Cunha, Brazil - Ashram Flor das Águas

Ashram Flor das Águas is located in Cunha, a small town in the interior of São Paulo state, Brazil. It is easily accessible from the capital (220km/136 miles away) in a mountainous region surrounded by a large Atlantic Rainforest reserve, with a mild climate, fresh air, waterfalls, and all the exuberant flora and fauna of a subtropical forest.

The Ashram, also called Espaço Flor das Águas, hosts a community of residents, students, guests and visitors, with Acharya Narada and his companion Ramani as mentors. The community gathers daily at dawn and dusk to practice Kriya Hatha Yoga, pranayama and meditation. These practices are also streamed online on YouTube and Instagram. Bhakti (devotional singing) is one of the portals that connects many people to the Ashram with hearts open to devotion. Listen to our Bhakti on Spotify.

Ashram Flor das Águas hosts the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Initiations in Kriya Yoga, Silent Retreats and Teacher Trainings. It has also hosted national Kriya Yoga meetings and the 1st International Festival of Kriya Yoga - Om Guru Om, in addition to promoting celebrations of devotional dates such as Mahashivaratri and Gurupurnima. These events take place in Babaji Hall, with a capacity of approximately 50 people, and the Shiva Shakti Temple, with a capacity of approximately 100 people. See our event schedule.

The 1st Initiation in Kriya Yoga is also offered as a Residency, conducted by Acharya Narada, for groups of at least three people. This extensive, 7-day Initiation format is intended to integrate theory and practice, transmitting and experiencing the specific techniques of each day of the week.

In addition to houses for residents, Flor das Águas includes Hospedagem Beija-flor, an inn with 18 rooms providing accommodation for participants in retreats, initiations, workshops and trainings, as well as visitors aligned with the community's mission. Information on our accommodations.

Visitors and students are served a plant-based diet based on the principles of benevolence and respect for all beings. Our food is free from animal derivatives, except for bee products that are collected harmoniously in our own apiaries. Learn more about our kitchen.


For those who want to have a greater experience of immersion in the community life of Flor das Águas, the Escola do Ser Integral (School of the Integral Being), which allows participants to anchor the precepts of sadhana and seva, deepen in the practices offered, and learn essential skills for cultivating a simple life integrated with nature, such as planting and managing organic gardens and agroforestry systems; harvesting, processing and preparing seasonal foods and non-conventional edible plants; promoting food sovereignty; building with natural materials; harmonizing environments; and, above all, anchoring a heightened state of presence, peace and love with all beings. For information about Escola do Ser Integral, visit.

They also make up the Flor das Águas space, a holistic spa with many healing and integration therapies, paths in the middle of the forest, orchards, meditative labyrinths and several other corners of rest and contemplation. Meet our spa.
