peace of mind: Women at the yoga class conducted by the Isha Foundation in Tiruchi on Saturday.

TIRUCHI: The three-day yoga training classes organised by the Isha Foundation which began on the National College grounds here on Friday and was conducted directly by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, founder of Isha Foundation, evoked good response as 10,089 persons from various parts of Tamil Nadu and other places had registered their names in advance and are undergoing yoga training.

The Sadhguru who is a yogi, mystic and spiritual master, will also give training in the ancient `Shambhavi Mahamudra Meditation' on Sunday. Besides, the Sadhguru will also perform `Diksha' initiation (spiritual awakening) to the participants.

An official of the Isha Foundation told The Hindu on Saturday that arrangements were made for providing food, shelter and other facilities to the participants. More than one thousand Isha volunteers have been doing service during the three-day camp.

He said Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev had recently conducted sathsangs, yoga and meditation during his tour in 16 important towns in Tamil Nadu so far. The interest evinced by more than 10,000 participants showed the awareness about yoga and meditation.

It was the wish of the Sadhguru to bring peace, happiness and affection to the people through yoga and meditation, he said.

The official pointed out that Isha Foundation, founded by the Sadhguru, was a volunteer-run, international non-profit organisation dedicated to cultivating human potential. The foundation is a human service organisation that recognises the possibility of each person to empower another, restoring global community through inspiration and individual transformation.

Isha Foundation is operated by over two million volunteers from more than 150 city-based centres across the world and the headquarters is situated in the lush rain forest at the base of Velliangiri Mountains in South India, he added.
