Kriya Yoga is an ancient spiritual teaching brought down to humanity through Mahavatar Babaji and Matajis Annais conciousnesses. Kriya Yoga is a spiritualpath to Self-realization and God. A way of life in all aspects. After initiation into Kriya Yoga one can walk the path to become a Kriya Yoga master, and ultimately live in unity with God. Yoga means 'union with God'.
Within the teaching there is a Kriya yoga practice of specific Kriya asanas, mantras, pranayama and meditation to assist the yogi to evolve spiritually and attain higher states of conciousnesses.
Babaji handed down 18 Kriya asanas to his disciple Yogiar in the 20th century and these were taught to my Guru and then me. I feel these 18 asanas to open up the body and its energycircuits to be able to anchor and hold more light and raise in conciosuness. They are most beneficial as a daily Sadhana, regularly practised that is.
The 22 positions of Kriya Yoga coming through Mataji Annais conciousness i was informed are for the femala body. This Kriya Yoga is still for me to explore as this is new to the world in this time.
