4. Jnana Yoga (also known as the yoga of knowledge) is for those with strong intellectual tendencies, as it requires great strength of will and mind. Using Vedanta as a vehicle, the inquiry into the individual nature is the key to this arduous path. Usually approached after experience is gained in other areas of yoga, assisting the profound Self inquiry towards spiritual awakening.
