Isha Yoga

Sadhguru’s vision is to bring the spiritual process into the life of every person on the planet. In this effort, he has created Isha Yoga, a subtle and powerful science. Isha Yoga is structured to promote beneficial changes in one’s inner chemistry to accelerate the release of physical, mental, and emotional blocks and produce a life-transforming impact of profound experience, clarity, and boundless energy. A proven tool for preventive health, Isha Yoga has helped thousands find relief from chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and migraines, as well as from emotional disturbances including depression, anger, and anxiety. In addition, practitioners experience enhanced memory, concentration, and decision‐making abilities.

Primarily through grass‐root initiatives and word‐of‐mouth efforts, Isha Yoga programs have gradually spread around the world over the last three decades, broadening the reach of classical yoga. Sharing Sadhguru’s vision and dedication, hundreds of Isha Yoga practitioners have chosen to become teachers, and have been trained under his direct guidance to teach various processes including Hatha Yoga, Kriya Yoga, meditation and Samyama practices. The universal principles and practices conveyed in Isha Yoga programs have touched and transformed the lives of over 7 million people from all walks of life – from tribal villagers to top‐level executives.

Inner Engineering is a 7‐day program which can be thought of as a synthesis of holistic sciences.
 It helps participants establish an inner foundation and vision for all dimensions of life and find the necessary balance between the challenges of a hectic career and the inner longing for peace and wellbeing. The approach is a modern antidote to stress, and presents simple but powerful processes from yogic sciences to purify the system and increase health and inner wellbeing. Program components include guided meditations and transmission of the sacred Shambhavi Mahamudra. 

Inner Engineering Retreat (IER) is a 4‐ day residential Inner Engineering program occurring twice a month at the Isha Yoga Center. Program components include interactive group sessions, treks into the surrounding rainforest, visits to waterfalls, refreshing massages at the Isha Rejuvenation Center, guided tours to the Dhyanalinga and Theerthakunds, and transmission of the powerful Shambhavi Mahamudra.

Advanced Programs 

Bhava Spandana (BSP) is a 4‐day advanced residential program for those who have been initiated into Shambhavi Mahamudra. Uniquely designed by Sadhguru, it provides the possibility to break through limitations of body and mind and experience higher levels of consciousness and a world of unbounded love and joy.

The word bhava literally means sensation. Spandana means resonance. Through intense processes and meditations, Bhava Spandana is an opportunity to transcend individuality and resonate with the existence.

Shoonya Intensive is a complete path to inner wellbeing. This 4‐day residential program combines Shakti Chalana Kriya—powerful and purifying breathing techniques utilized to encourage the flow of vital energy into the central energy channel, or sushumna nadi—and Shoonya meditation, an effortless process of conscious non‐doing. Together, these practices stimulate the release of physical, mental and emotional blocks and activate the spontaneous expression of vital energy. Participants must complete the Inner Engineering program to participate.

Samyama is an intensive eight-day residential program conducted by Sadhguru at the Isha Yoga Center. Samyama meditations provide the experiential possibility to free one from the bonds of karma and purify the body and mind to receive higher levels of energy. Samyama presents the potential for participants to reach heightened levels of consciousness and experience explosive states of meditativeness in the presence of a self-realized yogi.
