Upa-yoga is a series of 7-10 small practices put together in a certain sequence.

Upa-yoga essentially means “sub-yoga” or “pre-yoga”. Because of its many immediate and evident benefits, the word Upa-yoga in Indian languages is commonly used to denote “usefulness.”

Upa-yoga is a simple yet powerful system of exercise that activates the joints, muscles, and energy system. Based on a sophisticated understanding of the body’s mechanics, Upa-yoga dispels inertia in the body’s energy and brings ease to the whole system. It relieves physical stress and tiredness.

Practice benefits:

  • Strengthens the joints, not just the muscles
  • Strengthens the spine
  • Aids in relaxation and ease
  • Relieves physical stress and tiredness
  • Rejuvenates the body after periods of inactivity
  • Negates the effects of jetlag and long travel

This is a great place to start for beginners.

Activates the sun within you! We are very much connected to the sun.

Surya Kriya is a potent yogic practice of tremendous antiquity, designed as a holistic process for health, wellness, and complete inner well-being.

“Surya” means “sun,” and “kriya” means “inner energy process.” Surya Kriya activates the solar plexus to raise the samat prana, or solar heat, in the system.

It also balances a person’s left and right energy channels, leading to stability of the body and stillness of the mind. This strong foundation becomes the basis to explore higher dimensions of life. It’s similar to a sun salutation but done in a very specific and particular way so that one cycle ideally takes 21 minutes.

Practice benefits:

  • Develops mental clarity and focus
  • Remedies weak constitutions
  • Boosts vigor and vitality
  • Balances the body, mind, and energies
  • Rejuvenates all the major organ systems including balancing hormonal levels
  • Supports one to become meditative and experience peacefulness and joy
  • Increases the capacity of the lungs
  • Regulates the breath

This course is structured into three 2-hour sessions.
