Sun Yoga is a form of yoga that leads you towards self-realisation through your physical body. Our signature flow is built on the meditative flow of the breath and components of Hatha yoga, mantra, relaxation and meditation. At Sun Yoga, wherever you are in your practice, you will experience a connection between yourself and the flow of Nature.
Also called as Surya yoga, it is the highest yoga and the fastest path to union. It includes adoration, wisdom, power as well as purity, activity and dedication, light and the sacred fire of Divine love. Practicing sun yoga establishes a link between yourself and the power that governs and gives life to the whole Universe: the sun.
The solar plexus (located behind the navel, which is the central point of the human body) is connected with the Sun. The body (through the physical movement), the mind (though the solar plexus) and the spirit (through the chants) get a boost from the practice of Sun yoga.
It is a set of 12 postures and should preferably be practices at the time of sunrise. It improves blood, maintains health, and helps one remain disease-free. It is really good for the heart, liver, intestine, stomach, chest, throat, legs. From head to toe, every part of the body is greatly benefitted. It revitalizes the body and refreshes the mind, making us ready to take on all tasks of the day. If done in the afternoon, it energizes the body instantly and if done at dusk, it helps you unwind. When done at a fast pace, Surya Yoga is an excellent cardiovascular workout and a good way to lose weight. It as well calms the mind, helps improves concentration, boosts endurance power and reduces the feeling of anxiety and restlessness, especially during exams. It is the best workout for muscles and improves flexibility in spine and in limbs.
