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 solar plexus within the system and balances a person’s energies, leading to stability of the body and stillness of the mind. This solid foundation becomes the basis to explore higher dimensions of life.
