This subject provides a range of audio class recordings and class notes for practice enquiry along with articles to explore Kriyayoga. Access is for a 10 week period from enrolment. Thus, a student may practice to one recording per week to cover the material in the timeframe or using the recordings twice per week to cover the content twice.

Study Focus subjects (SF-1 to SF-08) are configured through the following modes: Learn/ Study/ Practice

  1. in the Learning mode we review the details and definition of an area of enquiry
  2. in the Studying mode we look at details and nuance whilst hearing from the teachers of our lineage
  3. the Practicing mode focuses on doing where individuals practice to recorded sequences recorded by Alan Goode

In light on Yoga Sutras of Patanjali BKS Iyengar writes 

‘In the second chapter, sadhana pada, Patanjali comes down to the level of the spiritually unevolved to help them, too, to aspire to absolute freedom. Here he coins the word kriyayoga. Kriya means action, and kriyayoga emphasizes the dynamic effort to be made by the sadhaka. It is composed of eight yogic disciplines, yama and niyama, asana and pranayama, pratyahara and dharana, dhyana and samadhi. These are compressed into three tiers. The tier formed by the first two pairs, yama and niyama, asana and pranayama, comes under tapas (religious spirit in practice). The second tier pratyahara and dharana, is self study (svadhyaya). The third, dhyana and samadhi, is Isvara pranidhana, the surrender of the individual self to the Universal Spirit, or God (Isvara)’.
