Heartfulness proposes meditation on the heart with an aim of attaining subtler levels of consciousness. The heart is not merely a pump for blood circulation – its role goes far beyond that. References in ancient Indian literature on Yoga, especially that from Sages like Patanjali,…
Union, connection, integration, inspiration, being the best version of me, transcending individuality, feeling part of something much bigger than me. They aren’t only simple fine words, but have become a living experience during these weeks around the Synchronized Global Prayers. Thanks so much to IYA for promoting this awesome yogic experience”.

The Synchronized Global Prayer has been wonderful in that it keeps the mind focused on love rather than fear. For me, it has kept me grounded in truth and has provided structure in my practice. The Brahmari pranayama has had a positive effect on sleep as well. The practice is keeping me centered in love and unity of my fellows as we all walk through fear and doubt at times. Thank you Indian Yoga Association for these beautiful offerings and may we all be healthy, happy and blessed as we walk together through this time.

The Synchronised Global Prayers by Indian Yoga Association is really unique in the sense that it makes me feel positively connected to the rest of the world. It gives me hope and confidence that we are all in it together to deal collectively and successfully with this global crisis.
I also personally enjoy the Bhramari Pranayam very much, as it connects me
to myself in a way I don’t feel with anything else.
So thank you so much for this morning and evening practice. The sessions are the highlight of the day and my benchmark for self-discipline and emotional balance.

It has been such a wonderful opportunity to have come together as a huge combined unit, a family during these times of social distancing and lock out, twice every day regularly ever since the break out of the pandemic. Prayers has enabled us to battle out the sense of seclusion and fear through the vibrational resonance if Brahmari pranayama as well as the sankalpa along with the energetic clapping to appreciate the efforts of the health workers.Thank you Indian Yoga Association for motivating us!!

I’m really enjoying the Synchronised Global Prayer, a wonderful initiative by Indian Yoga Association. With this global pandemic, our 3R’s (rhythm, repetition and regularity) have been taken away. This creates anxiety. The global prayer creates a “regular” “routine” with “rythmic” breathing. How perfect for putting our R’s together! I find it is also nice to connect to my yoga family in these isolating times. I am craving contact with people other than my husband. It is so nice to see all of you as well as others in the morning prayers. It is nice to feel like there are people out there with good intentions.
