Surya Yoga R/T improving Mental health

, I had a candid chat with mental care professional Laurie Watkins on ‘Surya Yoga and Mental Health’ where she shared her story with ‘Yoga and meditation’. At the end of chat, she went through the Surya Dhyana meditation [29:30] , and she found it ‘blissful and peaceful’, and she can actually experience solar energy inside herself, and flowing in the whole body.

Surya Dhyana, is an wonderful process of meditation, and it helps to calm mind, and release those happy hormones, in our body, that create both wellness and happiness. I have uploaded the sound file for my facebook friends and students who have not done Surya dhyana till now. It is the first time the Sri Joydip Ashram, is releasing any podcast, related to Surya Yoga online . So , it’s an great opportunity to experience some gems of Surya yoga, sitting in your home at comfortable position.

 Sri Joydip is an excellent teacher of meditation surya yoga and we had a great discussion on mental health east meets west



I had the honor to have a frank discussion with Sri Joydip, the views expressed are my own.Nurses are not allowed to diagnose or prescribe, This opinion of mine does not replace the importance of seeking your Doctor or psychiatrist for treatment and or Advice

Discussing ideas R/T improving #mental health #initiatives #worldwide

I highly encourage people with mental health concerns to call their local Hospital,social worker,professional caregiver.Being a live podcast I had no time to rehearse my answers
