Upa Yoga, or "sub-yoga", is a simple yet powerful system of exercise that activates the joints, muscles, and energy system. There are 72,000 energy pathways, or nadis, within the human system. In your joints, the nadis meet and form energy nodes, making the joints storehouses of energy. Upa Yoga is essentially to activate the energy nodes and the lubricants in the joints leaving you very light and alert.
Upa-Yoga bring various benefits to the system:
Relieves physical stress and tiredness.
Strengthens the joints and muscles.
Rejuvenates the body after periods of inactivity.
Negates the effects of jetlag and long travel.
Upa-Yoga can be practiced by anyone over the age of 7.
"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." - Sadhguru
