"If life were to come with a manual, this in my opinion would be it! If we all applied the Inner Engineering technology, our world would instantly transform to exist from a foundation of peace, joy, and compassion for all beings." -Evita Ochel

For all of the strides we have made in science and technology with standards of living unimaginable a century ago, most human beings still remain in search of wholeness and purpose in their lives. Inner Engineering (http://www.ishausa.org/programs/inner-engineering/?webSyncID=6366b7b5-2e57-b99d-a0d9-8144b41a2963&sessionGUID=978454c1-093a-d3e1-8b9c-608859c3457e) is scientifically-structured to offer powerful processes from the ancient tradition of yoga to transcend the limitations of who you are and bring you to higher levels of consciousness. Inner Engineering was designed by Sadhguru, a yogi, visionary, and one the foremost authorities on yoga as a powerful tool to create your life the way you want it.

Sadhguru & Deepak Chopra— Creating Inner Peace, Joy and Fulfillment in a Hectic Modern World

"The word 'yoga' means union, that means you experience the entire universe as yourself...by working with the body, by working with the mind, by working with your emotion and energy, you can setup a step-by- step system within yourself where your energies are kept at such a level of exuberance that your sensory body is as large as the universe...Once you experience everybody around you as yourself... your goodness is a consequence, not an effort."

About Sadhguru—Sadhguru is a realized yogi and mystic – a man whose passion spills into everything he encounters. With a keen mind, balanced by a heart that knows no boundary, his presence and powerful yoga programs create an extraordinary opportunity to break through limitations into one’s natural state of freedom, love and joy.

Sadhguru has a unique ability to make the ancient science of yoga relevant to contemporary minds. Sadhguru serves as a bridge to the deeper dimensions of life. His approach does not ascribe to any belief system, but offers methods for self-transformation that are both proven and powerful.

An author, poet and internationally renowned speaker, Sadhguru’s wit and piercing logic provoke and broaden our thoughts and perception of the meaning of life, the very purpose of life. Sadhguru has been an influential voice at major global forums including the UN, MIT, TED, and the World Economic Forum.

Sadhguru established Isha Foundation, a non-profit organization supported by over two million volunteers worldwide. From powerful yoga programs and meditation practices to large-scale humanitarian projects, the foundation’s activities are designed to create an inclusive culture and establish global harmony, earning a special consultative status with the United Nations.

Yoga for Success

Visions & Dreams

Upa Yoga is a simple yet powerful system of exercise that activates the joints, muscles,and energy system. Based on a sophisticated understanding of the body’s mechanics, Upa Yoga dispels inertia in the body’s energy and brings ease to the whole system. Within the human system, the energy flows along 72,000 pathways called nadis. At the joints, the nadis meet and form nodes, making the joints storehouses of energy. Upa Yoga activates this energy and also lubricates the joints, creating an instant sense of alertness and liveliness. Upa Yoga essentially means “sub­yoga” or “pre­yoga”. Because of its many immediate and evident benefits, the word Upa Yoga in Indian languages is commonly used to denote “usefulness.” Benefits: ­ • Relieves physical stress and tiredness • Strengthens the joints and muscles • Rejuvenates the body after periods of inactivity • Negates the effects of jetlag and long travel For more information, email [masked] or call[masked] To rsvp, go to link and enter your name https://www.innerengineering.com/ieo-new/free-sessions/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=mkto&utm_campaign=weeklynl&utm_content=5823&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTkRneFpEUXhaV1V3T1RNNCIsInQiOiJvNGh3SjRENXYrT0xQSjdCY285T3lWQ2NoWHc5VkhSNlB2WUJKQ05aencrdnNmc3I4eU5cL3JLU1RsVWsxeThTajlKNXNyT0ZCV1wvT0NnTStkNmRPN3FDQUx2aTA0cHZlRkpJVWcwbGs5UDB6VEFYTkNGRjQ3bmVieHBcL1ltZ1l5TCJ9
