" Before learning Surya Kriya, I had heard that it was very "powerful." I didn't really know what the meant, and thought it was too ambiguous to really mean anything...but after learning it, "powerful" made perfect sense. After my first complete Surya Kriya practice, I felt as if my entire body was in a meditative state. I didn't even want to move, and I was standing upright! Every part of my body and mind was just still. It was stilling, exhilarating, HUGE, and, definitely, powerful. I can see and immediate change in my face and body after practicing Surya Kriya. It tones my body and mind daily. Now I understand the difference between "authentic yoga" and other types of yoga taught simply for fitness. "
