It has been the heartfelt desire of Isha meditators and volunteers to have a physical presence...
So, when after 12 years of efforts, the first Isha Yoga Centre in Europe was established in November 2017, it was met with tremendous joy.
Tucked away in a serene location in the heart of London, an industrial floor was reshaped using warm earth-coloured brick walls to create a welcoming and loving atmosphere - exuding a feeling of all-inclusiveness. Though it had humble beginnings - only a couple of tables and no central heating - the willingness of the volunteers had enough fire in it to get things warmed up, and now running beautifully.
There has been a spectacular transition from offering just 3 programmes monthly when the centre was first established, to now over 70! Perhaps there is no greater joy than to see new meditators initiated into Shambhavi at the centre come back to volunteer, making this transformation possible for others as well! The seed that was planted over a year ago has started to blossom, but is still a few miles from fruition and reaching its full potential.
We have big plans for the centre, for it to become a beacon for spreading tools of transformation across Europe - and we have only just started! The next phase will focus on spreading the word and reaching out beyond the boundaries of our current purview.
In this new phase, we are reaching out to you for much needed support. If you can bridge a connection for us to influencers and establishments such as business, hospitals and NGOs or anyone who can spread the voice of Isha further, then please do not hesitate to get in touch! We are dreaming to change the world for the better and need your support to make this dream into a reality.
