The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali describes Kriya Yoga essentially as Hatha, Jnana and Bhakti.
The teachings I share are from the lineage of Mahavatar Babaji.
Hatha may be further defined as physical, that includes postures, pranayama and mudras (held physical stillness to hold the pranic/electrical energies), and diet. These teachings are specifically developed for strengthening the spine and pranic structures so the electrical energies may move freely within the body.
Jnana Yoga is the process of converting knowledge (study) into wisdom (experience). It is a discovery of human interconnectedness with nature and the universe.
A method to obtain a high meditative state and developed intuition.
Moving from belief to knowing, realization.
Bhakti Yoga is fundamentally moving the emotional body with love and devotion. An internal process that is expressed through love and beauty.
These three main teachings of Kriya, practiced simultaneously, lead to advanced Pranayama, that traditionally is given though direct initiation with a teacher.
As you see, this is an ancient Eastern approach that is in direct alignment with all of the teachings I give. I spent 9 years with a traditional Kriya Yoga centre, from 1988 to 1997. During this time I earned a degree in Ayurveda which assisted me greatly as I worked in the field of Body Electronics from 1999 to 2019. At this time I was internally guided to combine essential teachings of Kriya Yoga, Ayurveda, Body Electronics and the Traditional Teachings of Turtle Island. This is my current work. A merging of East and West, North and South. Creating a unique wholistic approach to higher consciousness.
This I call The Gnostic Way.
