Kriya Yoga belongs to the inner level of yoga ‘meditation’ and was first described by Patanjali in his "Yoga Sutras" 400 BC. The practice is based on the breath, the attention and the 7 chakras.
Through the practice of Kriya Yoga the human evolution is enhanced and Samadhi can be attained. The secret in Kriya Yoga is the subtle connection between the breath and consciousness.
Kriya Yoga was made famous in the west by Paramahansa Yogananda. He wrote the book "Autobiography of a Yogi" which became a 'must read' for all who are interested in yoga.
