Segment 2 of the Kriya Yoga training process is for those who have completed the raja segment of the Raja Yoga Intensive, AND, Segment 1 of the Kriya Yoga Preparation. Segment 2 begins with discipleship initiation to Paramhansa Yogananda and the Self-realization line of gurus.
After taking discipleship initiation, you will be taught two key techniques: the Aum Technique of meditation and the Maha Mudra spine-energizing posture-technique.
Then, for the rest of the sub-classes in this Segment you will have the opportunity to practice the four core techniques which are practiced as part of and learned before receiving kriya yoga. These four core techniques are the Energization Exercises, the Hong Sau meditation technique, the Aum meditation technique and the Maha Mudra spine-energizing mudra.
In addition to practicing these techniques each week you will study the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda using four essential textbooks.
