What is Surya Kriya?
The word “Surya” means “sun,” and “kriya” means “inner energy process.” Traditionally available only to select groups of yogis, Surya Kriya is being offered through Isha Hatha Yoga and Sadhguru’s (Founder of Isha Hatha Yoga) willingness to bring back this powerful practice as a comprehensive spiritual process that is ideal for the hectic pace of today’s world.
This is a unique and authentic hatha yoga practice that incorporates aspects of yoga known as ‘Kriya‘ (Inner Energy Process). This gives this process a spiritual depth unlike any other hatha yoga practice. This means, as well as the immediate benefits one can derive, one can go far beyond this to bring a true transformation as a person and in their life.
Regular practice of Surya Kriya offers the possibility to truly transform your life and help you to live life with ease, without friction, enabling you to glide through life. This is all possiblle because of the way Surya Kriya works upon one’s system by activating the solar plexus to raise the solar energy (Samat Prana) within and making a powerful connection with the cycles of the sun.
“I was practising yoga for almost 12 years but the sheer focus and awareness that the Surya Kriya brought about when engaged in the method, was incredible”
– Rohan Narse, Founder of Inner Rhythms Meditations
What is the Difference Between Surya Kriya & Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation)?
Up until now, only Surya Namaskar was offered publicly offered. When those who knew the practice saw a need to to help the masses, they could not offer Surya Kriya in its most potent form so they taught Surya Namaskar (sun salutation) which has less potency spiritually but can still offer other benefits such as balancing the system. Surya Kriya was always the fundamental ‘Sun’ process and all other practices were derived from Surya Kriya. The Surya Namaskar has more impact on the physical body at the same time will have a basic impact on the energy system. Surya Kriya powerfully impacts the energy system and is suited more for those who want a strong spiritual process within a physical Hatha Yoga practice.
