Yoga is an ancient Indian philosophy of living that includes physical postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), Kriya’s, meditation, relaxation, moral codes and other practices. Asanas are the oil, pranayama is the fuel and meditation is the spark that ignites. Yoga without meditation and pranayama is like trying to tune an engine without the spark plugs. Together, it is said that these provide a path to self-realisation, or a union between the individual and the universal consciousness.
Today, yoga is often practiced as an exercise form or as a therapy using specific techniques for health benefits. Meladharma, however, has been created for those seeking to develop a deeper understanding and practice of yoga as a holistic lifestyle and a spiritual road towards self-realisation.

The practice of the tantras is based on the serpent power in the body, the Kundalinî. ‘Action, deed, effort’, In Sanskrit, Kriyā most commonly refers to a completed action, technique or practice within a yoga discipline meant to achieve a specific result. Kriya yoga is a relatively quick and easy non-sectarian path to reaching higher states of consciousness and changing your life by developing mind, body, intellect and awareness of the soul. Based on the science of breath, it provides a very powerful technique of meditation that greatly enhances all spiritual practice.
