It’s “that” new sunrise that could transform your life.

There is a significant shift from physical health to holistic wellness as we are realizing that harmony between body, mind and energy systems is essential for creating a fulfilling life and bringing the best out of us. Yoga addresses the various facets of human system as one and brings them to a balance. It sets the course for potent transformations that reflect in the way we act, think and feel.

Fundamental transformations within find expression in the way we handle our life and that of others’.

Classical Hatha Yoga is a fundamental tool for personal growth and complete inner wellbeing. It is not just a set of physical exercises but a potent science for transformation in body, mind and life; a process of enhancing human capabilities. The word “Yoga” means “union.” Hatha Yoga directs our energies in a certain way that enables us to experience union and joy. Physical postures are one of the aspects of this process.

Surya Kriya is a powerful practice to make the body a possibility not a barrier in one’s growth and transformation.

Know Surya Kriya- a potent “Yogic practice”

Surya Kriya is a potent yogic practice of tremendous antiquity; designed as a holistic process for health, wellness, and complete inner wellbeing. “Surya” means “Sun,” and “Kriya” means “inner energy process.”

Surya Kriya activates the system 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.

Traditionally available only to select groups of yogis, Surya Kriya is being offered by Sadhguru as a comprehensive spiritual practice that is ideal for the hectic pace of today’s world.

How does Surya Kriya enrich your life?

Surya Kriya is a powerful process. You can do it just to cure your backache, or to transform yourself absolutely. It has that potential.-Sadhguru

Surya Kriya includes several aspects that enrich one’s life:

  • Develops mental clarity and focus
  • Remedies weak constitutions
  • Boosts vigor and vitality
  • Balances hormonal levels in the body
  • Prepares one for deeper state of meditation


Why “potent Yogic practice?”

Solar energy is the most fundamental energy of life. If our cycles are in tune with the cycles of the Sun then the physical and mental health will be in a great condition. Besides the health benefits that one may experience, there are transformative benefits in mind and emotions that one can experience by regularly practising Yoga. How do you get to bring yourself in sync with the solar cycles? There are Yogic processes that you can incorporate in your life to achieve this state of health and harmony; Surya Kriya being the most revered and powerful one.

Surya Kriya is a very profound spiritual process within the physical process. It is the most central practice of awakening the Sun within us and bringing balance in our energy systems. Activating the Sun within us means:

Sadhguru says, “If you are in tune with the cycles of the sun, then physical health, wellbeing, vitality, energy, these things you don’t have to bother about – they are just there with you.” (Source:

What are the experiences with continuous practice?

Yoga is an experiential science more than intellectual process. It is by tasting the experience of Yogic practices one can truly understand the re-organization of system (body, mind and energy) in a way that they would be able to notice the transformation.
Surya Kriya is step towards the state of wellbeing that encompasses:

  • Improvements and benefits in Respiratory, Cardiovascular, Digestive, Excretory, Immune, Musculoskeletal, Endocrine and Nervous system
  • Better sleep due to body and mind being more organized
  • Increase in concentration and memory
  • Decrease in anxiety and higher emotional balance
  • State of calm and peace within
  • Energized and active body and mind

This yogic practice is a profound tool to help one relieve certain health conditions, reduce/obliterate stress, cultivate a healthy lifestyle and infuse a state of stillness in mind.

It has enriched yoga-practitioners’ lives, from all walks of life, at multiple levels in body, mind, emotions and energy system. Read some of Yogamat explorers’ testimonials here.

How can Productivity and Efficiency improve?

When the body and mind act as support and not hindrance then any activity one carries out, naturally happens with ease and efficiency. Whether one is a corporate professional in a dynamic environment, or performer in high-stress situations or student or homemaker or from any other walk of life, one is subject to situational stress and pressures.

When the body and mind are victims of lifestyle or chronic diseases and stress, their capacity to function at their highest potential drops drastically. This could mean serious drop in productivity, efficiency and outcome.

Imagine an organized closet where you are looking for your next best outfit for a meeting as against a cluttered one where you need to spend time and energy figuring out what you need to pull out and put on. Now, that a simple example to put into perspective that an organised mind and an active body can do wonders not only in terms of saving time and energy significantly but recording and retrieving information within your system, that would assist you in your tasks, thoughts, actions and decision-making abilities, at the right time. With clarity, stability, harmony and focus within the system, one can easily manage time as well cultivate ease to handle crisis situations.

Human system is comprised of Physical body, Mental body, Energy body. One of the fundamental objectives of Yoga is to bring these in synch. If physical, mental and energy body work in harmony and consciously, one experiences wellbeing naturally. Continuous practice of Surya Kriya helps in bringing balance to the system, internal focus and state of restfulness. Natural outcome is stability and re-organization of mind and body that assists in enhancing productivity.

Does that mean greater efficiency? Yes. And, less occupation into frustration and unnecessary cobweb of thoughts.

You no more behave compulsively but carry out your day consciously in actions, thoughts and emotions allowing yourself the freedom to make it a wonderful day, week and life.

Hatha Yoga is a holistic process towards this fulfillment and complete inner wellbeing; an approach to Yoga through self-exploration, perception and awareness in today’s fast-paced world. Surya Kriya is a significant step into Isha Classical Hatha Yoga.
