Bucharest, September 6th, 2004.
MISA yoga school supports the appeal addressed to mass media by the National Group for the Study of Yoga Practice (GNSPY) to inform correctly the public regarding the yoga practice.
We consider that the whole press campaign of the last months brought major detriments to the understanding of the yoga concept, because of the association of the spiritual practices from this millenary tradition with extremely serious accusations, which were not proved even until today. An objective presentation of some basic information will be for sure beneficial for the whole society and will stop the discrimination to which the yoga practitioners from Romania are subject.
The information presented about MISA, the most important yoga school from Romania, was either truncated, or deeply incorrect and defamatory.
The MISA yoga school provides courses of integral yoga that harmoniously combine techniques and procedures from Hatha Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Mahavidya Yoga, Raja Yoga, Mantra Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Tantra Yoga, Swara Yoga, Jnana Yoga. Also, within MISA yoga school there are initiatic courses of Shivaism, Eneagramm, Tantric Alchemy, Ayurveda, Astrology and Parapsychology. The courses are structured on years of study, with weekly attendance and the students receive printed materials and practical exemplifications.
The value of MISA yoga school is demonstrated better than anything else by more than 35.000 students, in subsidiaries open in over 20 countries which are acknowledged and appreciated in the respective countries. For example, the yoga school from Denmark has a few hundreds of students being the biggest yoga school from this country.
It is illustrative the fact that in 1999 the yoga teacher of MISA yoga school from Rishikesh (India) was designated by the Indian government as India's representative for the International Yoga Week. Also, yoga instructors of MISA yoga school graduated the courses of the Yoga Vedanta Academy - founded by the great yogi Swami Sivananda - and they got licenses as international yoga teachers. These are a few examples from the long list of the achievements obtained on the spiritual level by the students of the MISA yoga school from all around the world.
MISA yoga school is affiliated to the Yoga International Federation and to Saraswati International Yoga Order - both being world wide acknowledged organisms which recognize the contribution of MISA yoga school in spreading this millenary tradition. In Europe, MISA yoga school is one of the 25 honorific members of the European Yoga Council, organism which most of the important yoga school of Europe adhered to.
