Fast-Track to the Infinite
Kriya yoga is an ancient meditation technique that focuses on breathing and the spine to unlock deep states of awareness, self-realization, and spiritual growth. Kriya can provide a fast path to awakening, yet its practice has been shrouded in secrecy, passed only from master to initiate for millennia.
This guide explains the basic techniques of the Kriya practice, detailing proper posture, breathwork exercises (pranayama), bandhas, third-eye gazing, and the use of mantras. Kriya will allow you to quickly enter deep states of meditation and ultimately experience inner stillness.
In Kriya training, it is the foundation of a strong and straight spine that guarantees a practitioner will experience moments of great joy and compassion and deep insights. With deep commitment higher states of consciousness are achieved, as one comes more into alignment with themselves.
