• Internationally known yogi visiting Tampa in one of two North American stops

    Sadhguru’s ‘Inner Engineering’ program, in Tampa the weekend of April 29-30, can be done by anyone and has proven mental and physical health benefits

    TAMPA, Fla. (March 27, 2017) – Best-selling author and visionary Sadhguru, who has reached over 100 million people worldwide through his yoga and meditation practices, will teach his Inner Engineering program in Tampa the weekend of April 29-30. It’s one of only two in-person appearances by Sadhguru in North America in 2017, with the second stop in Vancouver, British Columbia in May.

    Organizers are expecting more than 2,500 people to attend the two-day program at the Tampa Convention Center, and more than 850 people have already signed up.

    Sadhguru’s daily yoga practice goes beyond physical activity and stretching – it can help align the mind, emotions and energy for overall well-being – and can be incorporated into every aspect of someone’s life with no lifestyle changes. Surveys of regular practitioners by Sadhguru’s Isha Foundation have shown that daily practice can also have meaningful positive effects on reducing anxiety, depression, hypertension, asthma, headaches, neck/back pain, diabetes and insomnia.

    During Inner Engineering, Sadhguru will bring his wisdom and insights and teach his 21-minute practice, which can be done by anyone and is not only designed for seasoned yoga practitioners. The practice uses minimal movements and focuses on the breath to ultimately create joy and resolve inner conflicts.

    A 2015 survey from the American Psychological Association reported that almost a quarter of U.S. adults are under extreme stress. One of the significant and proven benefits of Sadhguru’s Inner Engineering, a program that has been taught for over 30 years, is improved inner peace among more than 90 percent of the practitioners surveyed.

    Sadhguru made his first trip to Tampa last fall, appearing on stage with Tampa business leader and philanthropist Dr. Kiran Patel, who introduced him during the book tour for his New York Times best seller “Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy.”

    “If your goal is to find peace and tranquility for yourself in a world consumed in chaos, Inner Engineering by Sadhguru is your answer,” said Dr. Patel. “Amazingly, doing Sadhguru’s practice for just 21 minutes per day will provide you both instant gratification and lasting transformation.”

    Dr. Patel added, “One has to experience this to believe it and should not miss this golden opportunity of learning it from the master Sadhguru himself.”

    Dr. Patel is a supporter of Sadhguru’s practice and has been heavily involved in bringing him to Tampa for the upcoming program at the Tampa Convention Center. Dr. Patel is one of more than 200 local volunteers spreading the word in the Tampa Bay area to generate interest in this rare opportunity to see Sadhguru in person.

    Sadhguru is recognized as a worldwide leader in the field of yoga and meditation, and is the founder of the McMinnville, Tennessee-based Isha Institute of Inner Sciences, which is dedicated to raising human consciousness and fostering global harmony through individual transformation. The nonprofit foundation offers programs that provide methods that can help anyone work towards attaining physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

    Sadhguru’s YouTube following has helped him reach nearly 100 million people who have experienced his tools for well-being, and the Foundation reports that more than 7 million people follow Isha practices regularly.

    The Inner Engineering program requires attendees to complete seven online sessions, 60- to 90-minutes in length, in advance to lay the foundation for inner well-being and prepare them for the in-person program. Attendees are advised to sign up by April 15 to allow time for the online sessions.

    Also, there will be five opportunities for area residents to come to a free one-hour introductory session that explains the basics of the program, facilitated by a trained Isha teacher. Those sessions will be:
