Ananda Yoga is focused is on “raising awareness” or “preparing for meditation” through asana (physical poses), pranayama (energy control), meditation and the classical teachings of yoga philosophy. In Ananda Yoga affirmations are associated with each posture, and specific “energization exercises” are used to increase the flow of life-force and strengthen the body.

Ananda Yoga is a relaxation-based practice, although it includes some physically strenuous techniques.

The founder of Ananda Yoga is Swami Kriyananda, student of Paramhansa Yogananda (author of Autobiography of a Yogi).
