He founded the Yogoda Satsanga Society of India, and wrote Autobiography of a Yogi, introducing many Westerners to the practice of Kriya Yoga, which uses various breathing techniques to accelerate spiritual development. In 1920, he moved to America and founded the Self-Realization Fellowship to extend his teachings of philosophy, yoga, and meditation.
