Kriya Yoga is the basis of the information and advice given here. This is the yoga of meditation based on the teachings of the sage Patanjali. Asana, the physical postures that are the best-known aspect of yoga, are just one of the eight limbs that form the yoga path. Performing physical postures before sitting to meditate can help create a sense of inner peace and stillness. Pranayama, the art of breathing, is another of the 8 limbs that allow the mind to grow calm. With an understanding of the subtle energy system and correct preparation of mind and space, meditation can begin. This can take a variety of forms, individuals need to find what suits them best and it is not essential to adopt a complex posture. Some prefer mantra chanting, others are drawn to visualisation. Ultimately it is a personal choice but the book ends with suggestions for morning and evening meditation.
