Nipun Gupta, an Isha volunteer, visited Uruguay recently, and with his company’s support, helped 75 of his colleagues experience joy, happiness and inner wellbeing. He shares his experience of taking Isha Kriya to a country that’s “crazy about yoga!”

When I spoke to my company’s HR about it, to my surprise they were so excited that in no time they planned two sessions and organized it all.

In August 2012, my first visit to my company – Sabre Holdings – office in Montevideo, Uruguay, made me realize that it is full of people who are “crazy about yoga!”

I had another visit to this beautiful city planned for June this year, and I wanted to take along Sadhguru’s offering of at least “one drop of spirituality to every individual” and quench the thirst of seekers by conducting an Isha Kriya session. When I spoke to my company’s HR about it, to my surprise they were so excited that in no time they planned two sessions and organized it all. They created an Isha Kriya DVD with a picture of Sadhguru and a Sabre Wellness logo for me to distribute during sessions. The response from the Montevideo office folks was so overwhelming that within two days the registration was full and HR wanted to plan a third session for those they could not accommodate.

The sessions were a complete heart-warmer for 75+ participants with feedback ranging from “Helped to concentrate in my inner self and gather peace of mind” to “Videos were total practical eye-opener” and “I felt something in me, that was not my body” to even “It gave me a chance to let it out and go through tears” and “It takes only 12 minutes to feel that good!!!” What a fantastic gift – what a fantastic opportunity. The effect is such that a manager (and also a participant), after being touched deeply by Sadhguru’s videos is now attending the 7-day Inner Engineering Program in Bangalore.

I could not have asked for more. This event is such an inspiration for me that now, travelling to other countries will have an extra purpose for me.
