by Alan Finger: iHanuman humbly presents this week’s featured offering….
This recording is part of a week iHanuman spent covering the first Annual National Institutes of Health Yoga Week. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is the primary Federal agency for conducting and supporting medical research. Dr. Rachel Permuth Levine and her colleagues at NIH put on quite a show with live yoga demonstrations, yoga for the office classes, and incredible speakers each day. The event was free and open to the public and Rachel has just informed us that the 2nd Annual NIH Yoga Week is in the works for September 2009, so stay tuned. In the meantime, please enjoy listening to the meditative wisdom of Yogiraj Alan Finger as he describes to you the system of yoga he developed called ISHTA YOGA, an acronym for the Integrated Sciences of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda. It is also a beautiful sanskrit word meaning that which resonates with an individual’s spirit. Yogiraj Alan Finger, was a wonderful opening speaker with his 47 years of yoga experience to share within 45 minutes. His presence is peaceful, his intelligence bright and he resonates with the essence of yoga. We hope this comes across in the recorded selections.
