is a simple yet powerful set of 10 practices that activate the joints, muscles and energy system.

Surya Kriya

is a potent 21-step yogic practice of tremendous antiquity, traditionally available to a select few. “Surya” means “Sun,” and “Kriya” means “inner energy process.” Designed as a holistic process for health, wellness and inner wellbeing, Surya Kriya is a complete spiritual process by itself.

are offered as a set of 36 powerful postures to transform the body and the mind into a possibility for ultimate wellbeing. They are not taught merely for physical fitness and strength. They are a way of aligning the inner system to the celestial geometry, becoming in sync with the existence, thereby naturally achieving a state of health, joy, and bliss. Learn more about Yogasanas. 

Bhuta Shuddhi

is the most fundamental practice in the yogic system. “Bhuta” refers to the five elements and “Shuddhi” means “to cleanse.” This purificatory process helps one to achieve a state of harmony and balance which prepares the body for higher levels of sadhana, or spiritual practices.
