Surya Spa Wellness Offerings

Surya Sound Bath

(60 minutes, $250)

The deeply healing and restorative sounds of Surya’s crystal sound baths are profoundly relaxing and rejuvenating. Based on ancient healing techniques, the bowls’ gentle vibrations harmonize your body, mind, and spirit, literally balancing our brain’s hemispheres, nurturing ease and inner peace, even providing relief to chronic pain and headaches, while reducing stress, improving sleep, and increasing a lasting sense of well-being, calmness, and happiness. 

Surya Lullaby Sound Bath

(60 minutes, $300)

Surya’s same healing Sound Bath, though in this case, performed at the end of your day, when you (and perhaps your partner) are tucked into bed, and ready for sleep. With the lights low, the sound bath musician melts away your worries and concerns, sending you into a deep and restorative rest, and with the final mantra, turns off the lights, tip-toes out, and gently locks the door behind them. 

Surya Dosha Yoga

(60 minutes, $150)

Surya Dosha Yoga is a simple and practical form of Ayurvedic yoga, designed to help balance our innate constitutions, our Ayurvedic doshas, by either calming us, cooling us, or energizing us, as we might need. Each session is guided by the best instructors in Los Angeles, who will customize your flow to balance whatever is needed, leaving you in a restored and revitalized state. 

Surya's Ayurvedic Astrology

(90 minutes, $385)

Vedic Astrology, known as Jyotish, or the Wisdom of Light, is a practice that predates western astrology, and dives deeply into the planetary patterns present at the time of our birth, gleaning valuable clues that help us understand our life’s journey. In an in-depth and personal session, your Jyotishi will carefully analyze and interpret the patterns unique to your chart and life, and review both the challenges and advantages in which you currently find yourself, in order to optimize your full potential. Each session offers practical measures to overcome any areas of difficulty, personally and inter-personally, and provides the confidence needed manifest our true destiny, creating success, happiness, and harmony on all levels. 

Transcendental Meditation Instruction

(3-4 days, an hour a day, $850)

In partnership with the David Lynch Foundation and Santa Monica’s local Transcendental Meditation center, this 3 or 4 day experience takes only an hour a day, and has immediate, positive effects. TM training is a simple and natural mental technique that gives proven benefits for your mind, body and emotions, with a process carefully personalized for you by a certified TM teacher, and taught one-on-one. The TM technique is an effortless and evidence-based meditation technique you can do anywhere, and receive benefits from as soon as you begin. Though the first session is one-on-one, if couples, families, or groups wish to learn together, the following days’ instruction are perfectly suited for that experience. TM is remarkable easy, with no prior experience is required, and the results are profound and lasting.

Surya Dosha Yoga Nidra

(60 minutes, $200)

In this traditional and effortless yoga experience, through guided meditations, visualization, and breath and body awareness, you will fall into a welcome state of relaxation, and an even blissful state of being. Give yourself the rewarding gift of finding the deeper sense of connection with body and mind, a journey of discovery that gently guides you to your deepest self. 

Surya Breath-Work

(60 minutes, $200)

Surya’s breath-work practice, designed to help us expand our awareness and consciousness, beings with a reconnection to our current intentions, and what challenges we may be facing. A simple two-part breath gently activates what Ayurveda calls our “energetic body,” and helps move out of our mind, body, and spirit whatever we don’t need. This active breath-work fills your system with energy and gives you direct access to the healing potential of your own being. As emotions clear, we discover a space of stillness, vibrancy, and peace, allowing us to build a deeper relationship with all that we are. Each session ends, if desired, with space for discussion, meditative reflection, and guidance for creative, on-going practice. As the buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh liked to say, breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, and in this session, you will experience that awakening your own life, too. 

Surya Grandmaster Chi-Energy Healing

(60 minutes, $300)

Grandmaster Ten “Kancho” Hirakawa brings 53 years of martial art, tai chi, and chi gong mastery (including dan rankings in Karate, Aikido, Judo, Iaido, and weaponry) to bear in Surya’s private chi healing sessions. Kancho’s expertise, acclaimed in the field of chi healing, works with the energy that Ayurveda recognizes at the core of our being, energy that represents our inner power, and when unleashed, even in part, enables us to become stronger no matter where we find ourselves in life. In a private session, Kancho focuses on any areas of pain, discomfort, and even mental distress, and helps unblock and release the meridians that are often at the root of those conditions, allowing your chi to flow as it should, restoring vitality, wellness, and longevity.

Surya Grandmaster Healing Tai-Chai & Chi Gong

(60 minutes, $250)

Grandmaster Ten “Kancho” Hirakawa teaches you the moves of a core Tai Chi “kata” that you can practice on your own, as well as a series of Chi Gong movements that revitalize organs, mind, and breath. Tai Chi, centuries old, is recognized even by western medicine as a way to decrease stress, anxiety, and depression, and to improve mood, energy, balance, strength and agility. The remarkable situation of being able to offer private lessons by a Grandmaster is a jewel in Proper’s wellness crown! 

Surya's Ayurvedic Cooking Class

(2 hours, $250)

In this unique and practical experience, you will be paired with one of Surya’s master chefs as you dive into Ayurvedic cooking essentials, recipes, tools, and techniques, all personalized to your unique constitution and any current imbalances.

Group pricing also available if you’d like to bring your friends. 

Remote Energetic Healing Session with Internationally Renowned Howard Wills

(30 minutes, $250, 60 minutes, $500)

His life-transforming gatherings and private sessions help people permanently release obstacles that block them from living as they can — expansive, healthy and joyful lives filled with love, happiness and well-being. As Howard himself says, “when we practice the art of forgiveness and positive, non-judgmental thinking and behavior, we start feeling good, happy and free. When we start feeling good, happy and free, complete well-being in all areas of our lives will follow.” Howard’s work can positively influence all aspects of your life, from personal health concerns, to family concerns, to relationships, to issues at work at beyond.
