I don't have any information about the specifics of Kriyananda's kechari teaching. I have read previously on this board that Dr. Lewis and a few others were instructed by Sri Yoganandaji in kechari. Although SRF does not formally teach kechari as part of the Kriya practice, the monks with whom I have spoken recognize that kechari is a bona fide aspect of Yoga Science discussed by Yoganandaji, and therefore have advised one can practice it as a stand-alone adjunct to SRF practices (but not in conjunction with kriya), without conflict. A general instruction in the pre-SRF days advised that one could practice kriya with the tongue rolled back.

My perspective is that SRF students are not missing something vis a vis kechari, they are gaining something...by virtue of the focus on the essence of Kriya, i.e. visualization and mental attention aligned with the breath.
