Grainne has studied and continues to study, under the Spiritual Guidance and Instruction of Rudra Shivananda.
Rudra is a disciple of the Nath Master Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath. He is an adept of Kriya, Hatha, Mantra and Kundalini Yogas. Since 1998 he has dedicated himself to the well-being and spiritual evolution of humanity.
Rudra Shivananda has committed himself to spreading the ancient yogic techniques of the Naths and Siddhas in a contemporary way. He believes that societies can only exist completely in harmony with one another and with nature when human consciousness advances to the highest level, that of super consciousness. Only then, can humanity enjoy true peace and happiness. In this spirit of speeding up the evolution of human consciousness, he teaches that the only lasting way to bring happiness into one’s life is by consistent practice of awareness and transformation. He believes that true evolution is that of consciousness and that true healing is self-Healing.
The lineage of Kriya Yoga has descended to us from the immortal Babaji through Lahiri Mahasaya and many Kriya Yoga saints and sages, including Shri Yukteswar, Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Satyananda Giri. Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath is of the same lineage and is the Kriya Master of Rudra Shivananda.
