“The reason why the ashram is being structured and created the way it is, is to make people understand that a spiritual process does not mean barrenness of life. Spiritual process means grandeur of life. It does not mean obscenity of excess but grandeur of life. Some aspects very carefully crafted to be minimalistic, some elaborate and exuberant.”


The foothills of the Velliangiri mountains, forty kilometers from the city of Coimbatore in South India, serve as home for the Isha Yoga Center. The Center is dedicated to fostering inner transformation and creating an established state of wellbeing in individuals. The large residential facility houses an active international community of brahmacharis, full-time volunteers and visitors. Established by Sadhguru as a powerful sthana (a center for inner growth), it is unique in its offering of all the four paths of yoga – gnana (knowledge), karma (action), kriya (energy) and bhakti (devotion). Every week, thousands of people converge at the center to seek out inner peace and wellbeing, making it a vibrant hub of spiritual growth and activity.

The focal point of the Isha Yoga Center is the Dhyanalinga, a powerful and unique energy form sitting under a pillarless 250,000-brick dome structure. An extraordinary meditative space, the Dhyanalinga does not ascribe to any particular faith or belief-system, nor does it require any ritual, prayer or worship. The linga is created in such a way that even those without any previous knowledge of meditation can experience a deep state of meditativeness. As Sadhguru says, “Anyone who comes into the sphere of the Dhyanalinga cannot escape the sowing of the spiritual seed of liberation.”


The Suryakund and Chandrakund, located within the temple complex, with their powerfully consecrated rasalingas, are preparatory tools that enable an individual to better receive the Grace of the Dhyanalinga. A dip in these vibrant waters greatly enhances spiritual receptivity, straightens out energy imbalances and has an uplifting effect on one’s physical and mental wellbeing.


Adiyogi Alayam and Spanda Hall are program halls which provide the venue for many residential programs at the ashram. Adiyogi Alayam is uniquely designed and consecrated for the purpose of reviving the science of classical yoga, while the distinctive Spanda Hall is a program facility that hosts advanced Isha Yoga programs.



Isha Rejuvenation Center is an opportunity to experience inner peace and the joy of a healthy body. The center, under the guidance of Sadhguru, offers many dynamic programs aimed at bringing vibrancy and proper balance to one’s life energies, which is crucial for uprooting or preventing chronic ailments. Scientifically structured, the programs uniquely combine allopathic, ayurvedic and siddha therapies with the sublime wisdom of ancient Indian sciences and spirituality.


Isha Home School is a residential school which aims at providing high quality education in a home-like setting. The school’s emphasis is on integrating all aspects of life into the educational process. In addition to conventional academic requirements, emphasis is placed on exploring and pursuing various co-curricular activities, such as art, music and drama. The school is staffed by a talented international faculty who recognize that the true value of education does not lie in rote learning, but rather in the inculcation of life skills and in the wholesome development of the child.


The Nalanda Conference Center provides a breathtaking setting for a host of events, from Inner Engineering Retreat programs to tailor-made corporate programs, executive meetings and intimate social events.

“The experience I had at the ashram is indescribable, and I find myself somewhat puzzled and amazed by the feeling it left behind and was stirring up just as we were departing. Thank you so much for all you did for us and for the excitement and enthusiasm you displayed in welcoming us into your home and the incredible place the Isha Yoga Center is. I wanted to say that the IYC will always hold the most special place in my heart and I hope to someday return.”

– Annie, US
