Yoga, meditation to be at Isha
Peace and meditation classes to be on Saturday
Yoga and meditation are on the schedule this Saturday at the Isha Institute of Inner-Sciences off Highway 8 atop Harrison Ferry Mountain. Pictured is the 39,000-square-foot meditation hall.
Flashy performances will take a backseat to inner reflection this Saturday as the Isha Foundation commemorates World Peace Day atop Harrison Ferry Mountain.The day will be filled with yoga and meditation in the hope of strengthening individual wellness.“Without being capable of bringing peace into your own being, there is no way you are going to be capable of bringing peace to the world,” said Isha founder Sadhguru on why the organization commemorates the International Day of Peace.In years past, Isha has honored the day by scheduling a magician, musical acts, and intellectual speakers. This year, Sadhguru says the emphasis is on empowering individuals to take charge of their well-being with simple yoga practices that can be done at home or the office. There are six sessions dedicated to yoga or meditation on the schedule.There are also two hikes covering portions of Isha’s 1,400-acre campus, one at 10:30 a.m. and one at 5 p.m. For entertainment, international opera singer and “America’s Got Talent” contestant Travis Pratt will perform at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.World Peace Day operates under the belief that peace is a fundamental requirement for individual and global well-being.Since the United Nations’ adoption of the International Day of Peace in 2001, the day has provided a global ceasefire and cessation of hostilities annually on Sept. 21.
