Just five minutes a day can transform your life! Whether you’re seeking health and joy or peace and love, whether it’s success in the world or inner exploration you’re striving for, these 5-minute practices are designed to help you cut through the struggle and walk through life with ease.
The app includes guided instruction videos with demos and explanations for each of the seven practices.
The videos are available offline too, so once downloaded, the app needs no internet connection.
The seven practices include:
Yoga for Health
This practice is a simple way to activate the energy nodules in your joints and exercise your muscles, bringing ease to the whole system.
Yoga for Success
The energy and neurological systems branch out in a big way in the region of the shoulder blades and above. The neck practices activate these systems, bringing alertness and intellectual sharpness.
Yoga for Wellbeing
Yoga Namaskar is a powerful practice that nurtures the physical, psychological and energy dimensions of a human being.
Yoga for Peace
The Nadi Shuddhi practice cleanses the nadis – the pathways through which pranic energy flows – resulting in a balanced system and psychological wellbeing.
Yoga for Joy
Nada Yoga – the yoga of sound or reverberation – allows you to utter the sounds that create an inner atmosphere of joy, making it a natural way to be.
Yoga for Inner Exploration
Shambhavi Mudra is an easy, effortless process that enhances your perception and makes you receptive to that dimension of life, often termed as Grace.
Yoga for Love
The many nerve endings in your palms make them very sensitive. By placing them together in a Namaskar, you can change your chemistry to foster love within.
Benefits of Upa Yoga
Designed by Sadhguru, these practices are based on the science of Upa Yoga, which is oriented towards physical and psychological benefits. These practices help:
• Enhance vitality, focus, memory and productivity
• Stabilize the body, mind and emotions
• Strengthen and stabilize the spine
• Help relieve back pain, stress, anxiety and tension
• Help relieve chronic ailments and improve overall health
• Enhance teamwork and communication
• Impart a lasting sense of joy, peace and fulfillment
• The practices can be done at any time and anywhere. It is best to do them in the sequence given in the app. Each practice can also be done individually, if your focus is only on some of the aspects.
• If you are looking at doing just one practice, we recommend doing Yoga Namaskar for overall wellbeing.
• A light stomach is recommended (keep a 1.5-hour gap after food). If you do not fulfill this condition on a particular day, please skip the Yoga Namaskar practice.
• Anyone over 7 years of age can do the practices.
