Yoga is vast. It is much more than Asanas. It is a way of life.
Having like minded people to discuss Yoga, discuss the problems faced and to motivate one another helps. A group that is focused on right food, restaurants that provide great food, great food recipes, walks, music, good movies, talks, prayers, healthy parties, nagara sankeertan etc.
Nandiyogapeetha, wants to organize a meet-up for Pune. A regular meet where one can practice asana/pranayama, goto serene places around Pune, go for retreats to resorts/ farm houses and in general have fun with Yoga. The events maybe organized virtually or in person based on the situation.
Pune is a beautiful city in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. The city has a big historical importance and has great forts around. Serene places like Lonavla are within day drive distance. Nandiyogapeetha has a big presence in Pune. They have a studio in Nanded city, a sprawling campus of apartment complexes. “With beautiful locations around, not so high awareness of Yoga and the right climate it seemed apt to have events focused around Yoga as a way of life”, one of the founders Mr. Vinay tells. All the founders and mentors of Nandiyogapeetha are certified Yoga trainers and accredited to Yoga Alliance.
An event usually starts with introductions and brief experience sharing. Next one hour is focused on daily sadhana. Another half hour is spent brining in positive energy and thoughts through Dharana. The aura, the group magnetism and the collective spirit will go a long way in making every participant feel uplifted at the end. The event maybe signed off with a walk around the serene spots or light snacks in interesting restaurant nearby.
The first immediate event was conducted on 16th and 17th October 2021. We met at Taljai hills, Pune. On both the days we started at the base and parked our vehicles there. Hiking up the well laid road till an opening into the forest we then took a detour into the beautiful forest with orange flowers all around. It was a awesome way to warm up not just for the body but even for the mind. Finally we all assembled at the top in the Meditation Deck. It was fun to perform asanas and share our knowledge with each other. Dharana done together created deep, insightful and divine vibration. All of us felt it was one of the best experience we had.
