On 12 February 2019, Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga (HSTY) was invited by Shri Shirdi Sai Sansthan to conduct an open yoga session in the hallowed premises of the Sai Sansthan. This session was held in the same space that hosted several programs over the centenary year celebrations that ran till 15th October 2018.
HSTY was keen to use the platform of the Sai Sansthan to spread the knowledge of traditional yoga, with the kind permission of the Sansthan officials and the loving assistance of the chief priest of the temple, Shri Sulakhe Maharaj. The session was led by Devi Mohan, a senior faculty member of HSTY. HSTY is currently conducting a Yoga Teacher’s Training course in Shirdi and all the budding teachers participated in this program as well. Devi spoke about the ancient tradition of yoga, the lineage of Datta Masters and the various scriptures that help a student understand the true essence of yoga. The beautiful energies engulfing the HSTY team and the general audience made the evening truly special.
The event drew interest from the local media of Shirdi and Pune, as well as from the visitors and local audience of Shirdi. Devi also highlighted the interesting narrative about her evolution from a chance lead role as the heroine of a famous Marathi movie “Foreignchi Patlin” to her love for yoga and service and how this transition has transformed her life.
