Isle of Yoga


Two of Indian yoga guru Swami Ramdev’s followers (Sam and Sunita Poddar) have bought an island of the coast of Scotland to be renamed as “Peace Island” and they have pledged to found an international base for Swami Ramdev and build a center devoted to “healthy living through yoga.”

Peace Island consists of 684 acres of land, a 12 bedroom mansion, a lighthouse, a boathouse and a jetty. The opening ceremony for Peace Island was held on the 27th.


Swami Ramdev has caused a bit of controversy by claiming that yoga can, (among other things,) cure Cancer and AIDS and he has been accused of making false claims to terminally ill patients. Regardless of whether pranayama and asana can cure terminal illness as he claims, he does have some sensible tips for healthy living.

To see Swami Ramdev in action, for his guide to weight loss and healthy eating, or just for some serious healthy laughter and comic relief (not at the content, which FTY pretty much concurs with, but the voiceover is amazing). Check it out on Youtube.
