Home to the Isha Foundation, a non-profit spiritual organization, the Isha Yoga Center offers a brilliant entry-level short-course called Inner Engineering. Using practical methods that incorporate physical poses, meditation, breathing techniques and purification through healthy eating, the Inner Engineering course is a powerful tune-up for the body, mind and spirit. In an interesting departure from tradition, the Inner Engineering course (which runs from 3 - 7 days) is even available online.
This course is a mandatory precursor for further yoga studies at the center. There are several more programs available, including Teacher Training which can be taken as an intensive course while staying at the center, or in a more part-time way while living off-campus. This can take several months and any potential students should contact Isha directly for commencement dates. As well as yoga lessons, the Isha Yoga Center offers programs with a cultural focus like the unique Vaibhav Shiva, an intricate display involving performance and guided meditation. Using the legends of Shiva, storytelling, dance and music as the backdrop, each part of the meditative process illustrates a different lesson or truth about living. Running over the course of a single evening, these are conducted by the leader of the Isha Foundation, Sadhguru.
You can go through life untouched, you can play with life whichever way you want, and still life cannot leave a scratch upon you. That is the miracle that Isha Yoga can manifest in everyone's life. (Sadhguru)
