    I may try these postures out. I was more under the impression that there was a yogic way to enlightenment (a combination of meditation techniques and postures) and that is what I'm seeking. But it may not exist. I used to do yoga 30 minutes a day, I may have to take that back up.

    Hi.
    Yes that's exactly what they do. A combination of spiritual practices/meditations & yoga. I don't know too much, you'd have to ask them. They have a support online form where you can post questions:
    https://www.ananda.org/ask/creating-a-protective-aura/
    They also highly recommend the Yogananda Energization Exercise (on YouTube also).

    I'm going to ask them if their teachings lead to enlightenment or just a increase in awareness and physical fitness.

    In my own experience of yoga, the enlightenment of self is technically second-hand. Much like the analogy of a horse and cart, whereby physical fitness is pushing the horse, whereas enlightenment is spending the day in the cart, lol.

    of course it does! You're very funny. They have a very deep (& disciplined) spiritual practice it seems. That's why I said it's not for me. I don't like following routines & structures & not disciplined.just watch some of their videos on their talks (not yoga or physical exercises). You'll get the feeling of what they are about. Especially Swami Kriyananda ����

    My cart isn't there, just a weak horse.

    Before I dedicate myself to something like this I'm going to give Robert Bruce's material a try, if his material doesn't produce results then I will consider a system like theirs.

    Weak horse needs anger.
    No cart means no company - seek the truth.

    Do what feels right for you, resonates with you. Robert Bruce is something different to a yogic or spiritual path. But it seems to me that's what your heart wants, follow your heart. It normally works out best. Myself, I can't dedicate myself to anything, that's a big problem. The wise ones say dig in one place, & dig deep, then you'll hit water! It's no point digging lots of little holes everywhere ;}
