“Classical Hata Yoga is a complete path by itself. If you give yourself totally to this process, you can make yourself the way you want.” -Sadhguru

Upa Yoga

Upa Yoga

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 releases the inertia in the energy and brings ease to the whole system.

Within the human system, the energy flows along 72,000 pathways called nadis. At the joints, the nadis form energy nodes, making the joints storehouses of energy. Upa Yoga activates this energy and also lubricates the joints, creating an instant sense of alertness and liveliness.

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 has several benefits:

  • Relieves physical stress and tiredness
  • Exercises the joints and muscles
  • Rejuvenates the body after periods of inactivity
  • Negates the effects of jetlag and long travel
