Surya Kriya, which is the origin of the Sun Salutation, is an ancient yogic practice which is a powerful sequence of 21 postures. It is 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 within the system and balances a person’s energies, leading to stability of the body and stillness of the mind.
Traditionally available only to select groups of yogis, Surya Kriya is being offered by Sadhguru as a comprehensive yogic practice that is ideal for the hectic pace of today’s world.
Surya Kriya includes several aspects that enrich one’s life:
- Strengthens the muscles
- Lubricates the joints
- Develops mental clarity and focus
- Remedies weak constitutions
- Boosts vigor and vitality
- Balances hormonal levels in the body
- Prepares one for deeper states of meditation
