conduct Inner Engineering classes
By Ravi R. Ponangi
Atlanta, Georgia: One of the three teachers working in the US
for Isha Yoga, Ms. Sheela Rajdev will be conducting the life-
enriching and empowering ‘Inner Engineering’ program in Atlanta
from Wednesday, January 9 - 15, 2008 at the Holiday Inn,
Doraville, 2001 Clear view Av., Atlanta, GA 30340.
As Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev said “As we have physical science to
create external well-being there is a whole inner dimension of
science to create inner well being. I call it Inner
Engineering.” Inner Engineering is offered as an intensive
program for personal growth. The program and its
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
establish the possibility to explore the higher dimensions of
life and offers tools to re-engineer one's self through the
inner science of yoga. Once given the tools to rejuvenate,
people can optimize all aspects of health, inner growth and
success. For those seeking professional and personal excellence,
this program offers keys for meaningful and fulfilling
relationships at work, home, community, and most importantly,
within one's self. Inner Engineering can be thought of as a
synthesis of holistic sciences to help participants establish an
inner foundation and vision for all dimensions of life and find
the necessary balance between the challenges of a hectic career
and the inner longing for peace and well being.
The approach is a modern antidote to stress, and presents simple
but powerful processes from yogic science to purify the system
and increase health and inner well being. Program components
include guided meditations and transmission of the sacred
Shambhavi Maha Mudra. When practiced on a regular basis, these
tools have the potential to enhance one's experience of life on
many levels. As most of the Isha meditators say that they
experienced benefits from this Inner Engineering program include
Optimize health and vitality, Reduce stress, Promote mental
clarity and emotional balance, Increase and maintain high energy
levels throughout the day, Reduce sleep & rest quota, Prevent
chronic diseases like Asthma, Allergies, Sinusitis,
Hypertension, Diabetes, Obesity, Rheumatism, Arthritis,
Epilepsy, Back pain, Skin and eye ailments, Migraine, Increase
ability to handle stressful situations, Enhance focus,
concentration & memory, Raise productivity and efficiency,
Improve communication & inter-human relationships, Maintain
optimum levels of performance throughout the day, Establish a
positive & open approach towards life, Evaluate personal values
and life goals, Generate inner peace and fulfillment, Transcend
limitations and fears, Live & experience each moment to the
fullest. In fostering understanding of their interiority,
participants gain powerful tools to cope with the hectic pace of
modern life and move into a new plane for living and working.
Inner Engineering empowers participants to begin experiencing
their lives to the fullest potential.
Sheela Rajdev, one of the three dedicated and committed teachers
of ‘Inner Engineering has already conducted twice this Inner
Engineering program in Atlanta successfully in 2007 and on
public demand, she will be conducting 3rd Inner Engineering
Program from Wednesday, January 9-15, 2008 in Atlanta.
Participation in the earlier programs was impressive and many
participants told this reporter the teachings and techniques are
very useful and the
ISHA yoga teacher
way Sheela taught to them are very catchy.
She was born in Portland, Oregon. Her parents, also deeply
devoted, dedicated and committed to Isha Foundation, dad Mr.
Hitesh Rajdev, an Engineer and mom Dr. Kalpana Rajdev, a
physician are from Detroit, MI and are full time volunteers and
currently residing in Isha Institute of Inner Sciences,
Tennessee, USA, fully engaged in the activity at the ashram.
Sheela graduated with a degree in Biology and like her parents
immersed herself fully in Isha Yoga. She underwent three years
of rigorous intensive, full-time, residential training at the
Isha Yoga Center at Coimbattur in India and is a qualified
teacher who can impart authentic training of the highest
standard in its full depth and dimension. In the U.S. there are
17 centers and over 3,000 volunteers. Sheela travels widely in
the U.S. as well as in India and neighboring countries, teaching
Yoga, lecturing at hospitals, Universities and schools, and
supporting the social initiatives undertaken by Isha Foundation.
She waxes eloquently on the benefits of yoga. “With yoga and
meditation, so many things have changed within me that I just
want to share this possibility with everyone.”
Sadhguru is a yogi and mystic with profound mastery of the
ancient science of yoga. He is one of the few yogis capable of
transmitting the subtlest aspects of yoga, enabling everyone to
become meditative. A thought-provoking speaker, Sadhguru's wit,
wisdom, and piercing logic examines and reveals the essential
nature of life.
Isha Yoga programs are designed by Sadhguru as a 'live' process;
it is a rare opportunity for self-discovery under a realized
yogi. These programs offer interactive discussions, meditations,
and a balanced set of simple, but powerful yoga practices. The
Inner Engineering program includes Shambhavi Maha Mudra, an
ancient kriya (an internal
Process) never before offered publicly.
Together the program and practices establish health and
vitality, enhanced mental calm and clarity, and instill a deep
sense of joy. This foundation of total well being accelerates
personal growth, allowing you to tap the wealth of vibrant life
with in you.
