"Surya" means "Sun,"and "Shakti" means "energy". Surya Shakti is an dynamic form of the Sun Salutation which is an ancient yogic practice with a powerful sequence of 18 postures.
Surya Shakti builds the physical body – it makes the sinews and ligaments of your body strong. In Yoga, we give importance to the sinews that hold the skeletal system and the whole body together. When we do any yogic practice, which is physical in nature, the focus is mainly to strengthen those, not to pump up your muscles. Strengthening the sinews of the body is what will endure for a long time and keep you well. Surya Shakti does this in a tremendous way. When we say Surya, we are talking about the Sun which is the basic powerhouse of the planet. Life on the planet is solar powered, including human system. Surya Shakti is a way of using that energy. It does wonders for your health, as well as your physical and mental wellbeing.

What to expect?
Surya means “Sun,” and Shakti means “Energy”. Surya Shakti is a complete process, which is like a relative of Surya Kriya and largely physical in nature. If you do 108 cycles of Surya Shakti, it will make you fit and you will not need any other form of exercise. If you want deep spiritual transformation you do Surya Kriya, but if you are more interested in raising your energy level and fitness within a short timed practice Surya Shakti is perfectly fitting for you.
The practice is being transmitted in a highly committed environment with most precision and care, so you will feel empowered to integrate the practice in your life. The teacher has undergone an intense 1750+ hours teacher training, which is seen as one of the most excellent in the world, in an ashram in South India. You will gain deep knowledge of how to do the yoga practice given by the ancient world, which is the basis to let the effects blossom as you want them to.
Who can attend?
The workshop is suitable for complete yoga beginners, since it is being taught in a very defined step-by-step process, as well as for highly experienced striving yogis who want to bring their sadhana to the next level and learn pure yoga in the most proper way and in a purity which hasn't changed in more than 15,000 years. The practice is adaptable for any kind of commitment level as one can do it for a duration of 20 minutes but also stretch it up to several hours if wanted.
It is important to implement the practice into your life in a highly supporting atmosphere and learn it the most proper way. That is why we offer whole yoga practices only in workshop modules. For Surya Shakti it takes 2 sessions with 2,5 hours each session. Both sessions are mandatory to attend to complete the workshop and being able to practice at home alone.
