Before you start, what is Kriya Yoga?

Kriya Yoga is a simple, psychophysiological method by which the human blood is decarbonized and recharged with oxygen. The atoms of this extra oxygen are transmuted into life current to rejuvenate the brain and spinal centers.
Excerpt from Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda

Kriya Yoga is an instrument through which human evolution can be quickened.
Sri Yukteswar Giri.

According to the scriptures, your cells break down with every moment, and they are replaced by new cells. When you practice kriya pranayama your cells are replaced by Divine cells. The fragrance of Kriya will spread far and wide to serve as a balm for the headaches of suffering humanity.
Yogi SAA Ramaiah

Kriya Yoga is the jet-airplane route to God.
Paramahansa Yogananda

The ancient yogis of India discovered that the secret of cosmic consciousness is linked to mastery of the breath. The life-force (prana), which is ordinarily absorbed in maintaining the heart and body, can be freed for higher activities by a method of calming and stilling the ceaseless demands of the breath.

Kriya yoga (the yoga of action) is also known as Raja Yoga (the royal yoga) because it is a wholistic discipline including control of the breath, physical postures, and meditation.

There are two types of Kriya Yoga taught in the world: the first was introduced by Paramahansa Yogananda during the 1950s in America, on instruction of his guru, Sri Yukteswar, who was taught the technique by his Guru, Lahiri Mahasaya, recipient of the method directly from the deathless saint, Kriya Babaji Nagaraj. This form of Kriya Yoga has been adapted for western students and consists of a series of energization exercises, breathing techniques and a specific meditation method. There are no postures taught.

The second type of Kriya Yoga was made known by Yogi SAA Ramaiah, often referred to as Yogiar, who received 18 specific healing postures and a breathing technique directly from Babaji Nagaraj, the deathless saint, during an almost-terminal illness. Yogiar personally designed and consecrated the only Kriya Babaji shrine of its type in Africa, situated at the Jadatharaya Institute in Verulam, kwaZulu-Natal, and taught this form of Kriya Yoga throughout the world.

It is this second form of Kriya Yoga that is taught by the Jadatharaya Institute instructors, who have been trained either by Yogiar directly, or by Yogiar’s direct disciple, Swami Shankarananda Maharajji.
