Upayoga is a simple yet powerful system of exercise that activates the joints, muscles and energy system.
Based on the sophisticated understanding of the body’s mechanics, Upayoga releases the inertia in the energy and brings ease to the whole system.
Within the human system, the energy flows along 72,000 pathways called nadis. At the joints, the nadis form energy nodes, making the joints a storehouse of energy.
Upayoga activates this energy and also lubricates the joints, creates instant sense of alertness and liveliness. Upayoga essentially means “sub-yoga” or “pre-yoga”. Because of its many immediate and evident benefits, the word upayoga in Indian languages is commonly used to denote “usefulness”.
Upayoga has several benefits:
- Relieves physical stress and tiredness
- Exercises and strengthens the joints and muscles
- Rejuvenates the body after periods of inactivity
- Negates the effects of long travel and joint pain
