Although so many millions practice yoga around the world, the origins of yoga are unknown to most. Where did the practice of yoga originate and with whom did this phenomenal science begin? In short, who was the first yogi? The yogic lore, known to the mystics and sages of India, speaks of this first yogi or Adiyogi, who first fathomed the technology of taking one’s life energies to the very peak and making the human system a ladder to the Divine. Today, we refer to this being as Shiva, but in yoga, Shiva is not seen as a God, but as the Adiyogi and the Adi Guru or First Guru, who offered the yogic technology to humanity.
Please join us for an evening of spectacular and colorful feast of Indian classical dance hosted by Isha Foundation, and in collaboration with SACHI, Sangam Arts and Swar Sudha that will delve into the origins of yoga and offer a tribute to Adi Yogi, the first yogi and the originator of yogic sciences. The event will feature unique Bharatnatyam, Kathak and Odissi dance performances by Radhe Jaggi, Sayali Goswami, Niharika Mohanty and Navia Natarajan.
This event is part of the Asian Art Museum’s Yoga – The Art of Transformation series of events.
