Realized Master offers ?Soul of Yoga? in Atlanta

Atlanta, GA.Better health, stress reduction, and inner peace are issues likely to top the wish list of active lifestyles today. There seems to be fewer hours to manage careers, family and health, while finding a measure of meaning and inner growth in a world driven by increased responsibility in today?s lifestyles. Residents in Atlanta and the surrounding areas have the opportunity to hear Indian Yoga Master, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, explain how to use ancient yogic science to better cope with the pressures of living in modern society, and lead more productive and healthy lives. The public is invited to three free introductory seminars in the Atlanta area in late January and early February.

A 7-day intensive yoga program called Isha Yoga, ?The Soul of Yoga?, will be held at Life University, School of Chiropractic from February 5-11, 2003.

Sadhguru, founder of the non-profit Isha Foundation says, ?Never in history has humanity been as comfortable, yet as insecure as it is now.? As more and more people seek solutions to manage stress and problems caused by the rapid pace of life and change around them, Sadhguru says, ?It is time to look within oneself?. Vasudev, who has been practicing yoga since age 13, is committed to communicating a form of yoga that is simple enough to integrate into modern life. Isha Yoga (Isha means ?formless divine?) teaches practices to unite the body, mind and energy. Although yoga conjures images of people in complex physical postures, the physical requirements for this program are minimal and only a small aspect of Isha Yoga. Unlike the exercise-based form of yoga, Vasudev teaches a dynamic combination of breathing techniques and meditation, which stimulates the release of physical, mental and emotional blocks and activates spontaneous expression of one?s vital energy. The meditation and simple postures require no physical agility or previous yoga training. Dr. Kalpana Rajdev, who has studied with Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev for a couple of years says, ?The practices we learned raised my energy level. Now I thrive on more work or challenges. The meditation has been most beneficial. I am able to remain calm and focused; stress does not affect me at work or at home. Now yoga is my number one prescription!?

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev was among the world?s preeminent spiritual leaders attending at the Millennium World Peace Conference at the United Nations. The master?s humanitarian initiatives with the United Nations for world peace and his outreach programs for life-term prisoners and destitute children have received international attention.
