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.
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.
