Upa Yoga

Upa-Yoga essentially means “sub-yoga” or “pre-yoga”. Because of its many immediate and evident benefits, the word Upa Yoga in Indian languages is commonly used to denote “usefulness.”

One aspect of Upa-Yoga is towards activating the lubricants and energy nodes in the joints so that the rest of the system begins to function.

Upa-Yoga is a simple yet powerful system of exercise that activates the joints, muscles, and energy system. Based on a sophisticated understanding of the body’s mechanics, Upa-Yoga dispels inertia in the body’s energy and brings ease to the whole system. It relieves physical stress and tiredness.



  • Relieves physical stress and tiredness
