Kripa Yoga Postures are created with the intention of cleansing the body. They are not focused on producing a very flexible body. According to basics of yoga the body is like a vessel that contains the individual spirit. Just as one needs to clean a coffee cup before pouring coffee into it, so also it is necessary for every individual to perform yoga postures before sitting for meditation.

The Kripa Method (Exercises for Fitness)


There are three bridges that link the physical body to the causal body. They are breath, mind and intelligence. Pranayama or the  4th stage of Yoga helps to use the bridge of breath to lead the practitioner to the causal body. Meditation helps one to use the bridge of mind to move towards the causal body. The bridge of intelligence can be accessed through higher forms of yoga like Shaktipat.
